Liposuction / Liposculpture

Symptoms:
Unwanted rolls and bumps over the tummy and thighs; Spare tyres around tummy (Michelin Man tummy); Saddlebag hips; Double chin; Fat arms, knees and ankles

Description of Procedure:

Liposuction is a surgical procedure where fat under the skin (subcutaneous fat) is removed by vacuum aspiration. Removal of this fat thus recontours and sculpts the figure (thus liposculpture)- it is not a weight reduction strategy! Scars are hidden along natural skin crease lines and fade beautifully over time. Dr Lim’s preference is to use tumescent power assisted liposuction. Although it sounds straightforward enough, oftentimes what might appear to be ‘fat’ may actually be excess skin or tummy muscle bulging after, for example, pregnancy! It is therefore important to consult first to see exactly what you think the problem area is, whereupon Dr Lim will offer his suggestions as to what can be done.

PLEASE NOTE: Liposuction is not the remedy for cellulite and may even worsen it!
