Some people are prone to disproportionate contours from localised fat deposits, which can be more due to heredity than poor diet or lack of exercise.

Liposuction surgery can target these stubborn fat pockets in areas such as the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck to help reduce these issues.

In recent years, the procedure has evolved into a straightforward technique performed under either general anaesthesia or twilight sedation and offers reliable results with minimal downtime.

Scarring is minimised, as Mr Kode makes tiny incisions at the site of fat extraction, before administering a solution to provide anaesthesia, reduce bleeding and improve fat extraction. Then a thin, hollow metal tube (cannula) is inserted through the incisions to loosen the fat, which is suctioned out of the body by surgical vacuum or syringe. You are left with firmer, smoother contours, which become more apparent once any swelling and fluid retention has subsided.

You may experience bruising, but this should dissipate after one to three weeks while swelling can last for one to two months. You may have to wear a compression garment for three months weeks to control swelling and help compress the skin to your new form.

Liposuction is a commonly performed procedure, either on its own or combined with another surgery such as a Body Lift, Tummy Tuck or Facelift.
