Liposuction is a cosmetic treatment for people who want excess fat removing from their bodies. The process works by disrupting fat cells and then removing these using a delicate cannula device. The procedure effectively “sucks” the fat out of the target area, such as the belly, thighs, or back. Various methods of liposuction exist, but the results are similar. For clients who cannot remove body fat by diet or exercise, liposuction is a popular and effective method.
Liposuction is superior to other cosmetic procedures, such as fat freezing. After a single treatment session, clients can expect to see results within a few days. Due to the more invasive nature of liposuction, there is a longer healing time than for some other cosmetic methods. However, recovery time is minimal and results continue to be seen in the coming weeks and months. Few methods are anywhere near as effective as professional liposuction treatments. It is worth noting that liposuction cannot treat or reduce the amount of cellulite or stretch marks on the skin. But other cosmetic procedures can assist in these areas.
When a client first expresses an interest in liposuction, they will receive a full and free consultation. If the client wishes to undergo the procedure and passes all necessary health checks, they will be invited for an appointment. The procedure involves the use of a delicate cannula device that “melts” the fat cells in the target area of the body. The device is then used to suck the excess fat cells out of the body. Modern liposuction methods are relatively pain-free and can be completed within 30 to 90 minutes. Recovery time is minimal and clients can resume normal activities usually within the week.
While liposuction is one of the most effective treatments for excess fat, it is an invasive, although minor, surgical procedure. A non-invasive treatment like fat freezing, known as cryolipolysis, is a popular alternative for clients who do not wish to have any post-procedural scarring. The process works by breaking down excess fat cells by cooling the target area to minus Celsius. Dead fat cells are then removed by the body’s natural processes over weeks and months. The recovery time for fat freezing is faster and treatment times are shorter. However, liposuction is preferable in situations where other methods have been exhausted.
Modern liposuction methods are relatively pain-free and come with fast recovery time. Most clients can go back to work and undergo minor exercise within 1 week. There may be some minor discomfort after the treatment. Usually, this involves minor swelling, soreness, or bruising. The length of recovery depends on the size of the body area being treated. For example, liposuction on the belly has a slightly longer recovery time than liposuction on the upper arms.
Liposuction is a surgical cosmetic procedure that works by breaking down and then removing fat in the body. The treatment is done using a device that melts or disrupts the body’s fat cells before effectively “sucking” the fat out of the target area. There are various methods of liposuction, such as Tumescent liposuction (the most popular), Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL), and Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL). There is not a great amount of difference in terms of outcome with each method. The practitioner will usually specialize in one or more methods.
At Elite Style Polyclinic, we provide clients with the most modern liposuction methods available. We continually keep up-to-date with the latest techniques and refine our skills to meet strict industry standards. Part of this process involves the use of delicate cannulas. The cannulas are precise instruments used to break up fat cells and then suck excess fat out of the body. By using delicate cannulas, we can limit pain both during and after the procedure. The practice also vastly improves the likelihood that the treatment will be effective.
A typical liposuction session takes around 30 to 90 minutes. The length of the procedure depends on the size of the area being treated. Smaller areas typically take 30 minutes to complete. But larger body areas like the belly, back, or thighs can take up to 90 minutes, depending on the severity of the excess fat. Some clients wish to have liposuction done on more than one body area at a time. Suitability for this will be assessed by the doctor during the initial consultation.
No. Liposuction treatment is relatively pain-free. You will not feel any pain during the procedure. But there is sometimes some minor pain, soreness and swelling after treatment has been completed. Modern liposuction techniques can be completed using both local and general anesthesia. In each case, the pain is minimal.
Liposuction does not need lengthy recovery time. Most people can go about their daily business within a week after treatment. The average recovery time is around 3 to 14 days. But the actual length of time taken for recovery depends on the area of the body treated, the size of incision, and the amount of fat extracted. Smaller body areas have a faster recovery time than larger areas.
The side effects of liposuction are minimal. But most people will encounter a small amount of bruising or swelling around the treated area. The larger the area treated, the more soreness there generally is. The vast majority of clients will only experience minor bruising and little pain. This mostly goes away after 7 to 14 days.
It is possible to see initial results just a day after the treatment. As any minor swelling and bruising gradually declines, the results will become even more pronounced. Most clients see the full impact of the treatment over 2 to 4 weeks.
Liposuction can treat nearly all areas of the body where excess fat is causing a cosmetic problem for the client. Typical areas include the belly, thighs, buttocks, chest, and back. But the chin, neck and upper arms can also be treated.
At Elite Style Polyclinic, we provide a free examination to assess suitability for treatment. Our consultation also allows clients to ask questions and explore the potential treatment options available. Since every person is different, the consultation is necessary to ensure the best possible outcome for the client.

Initial results can usually be seen within only 1 week after treatment. As the minor swelling and bruising subside, the body will begin to heal and re-contour. Improvements to the target area’s appearance will continue to be seen for several weeks, with the final result becoming apparent a few months down the line. Modern liposuction techniques mean there is minimal scarring from the incision (hardly noticeable in the vast majority of cases).
