Does the procedure involves pain?
An anesthetist does the procedure in our day surgery facility under sedation and local anesthesia. Our cosmetic surgeon will then perform the VASER Liposuction in this period. During the process, it will be pain-free, as patient will be sleeping.
How many sessions does this procedure need?
Typically liposuction is a one-time procedure, but like most procedures, results vary. For each thigh, usually it requires between 2 to 3 areas of liposuction. For the abdomen, it is between 4 to 6 areas and for the arms between 2 to 3 areas per arm. Patients with BMI above 28 would not be able to undergo liposuction in a private clinical setting.
In any case, for the purpose of the best outcome, having a detailed discussion with the cosmetic surgeon is ideal.
Re-introducing the removed fats.
Alternatively, our cosmetic surgeon can also combine Liposuction with Fat Transfer. After removing the fat cells, surgeon will re-introduce them into other parts of the body such as the face, breasts and buttocks. By reintroducing the fats, from the same person, into the same body, results can be natural looking, longer lasting and no risk of rejection.
Will the fats come back again?
In the event that high weight fluctuation is present, weight gain would step in. Hence, it is best to maintain a healthy diet regime.
