Liposuction, or fat removal surgery, is a method For removing stubborn fat deposits.
Liposuction, commonly known as fat removal surgery, can assist in getting rid of fat in those problem areas that won’t seem to budge, no matter how healthy you eat or how vigorously you exercise.
Advances in liposuction techniques have greatly improved the potential results in recent years — specialist surgeons like Dr Lim can now remove up to five litres of fat relatively safely in a single procedure.
Our patients turn to liposuction for help with stubborn fat on their hips, thighs, buttocks, ankles, back, arms, stomach or chin.
During this procedure, Dr. Lim removes stubborn fat deposits. He takes his time with the procedure an optimal result.
Individual factors and personal preferences will help you and Dr Lim to determine how much fat is to be removed and exactly where incisions will be made. This will be discussed during the consultation process.
Tiny incisions are made at the sites where fat is to be removed and a solution is infused to provide anaesthesia, reduce bleeding and improve fat extraction. Dr Lim uses various sizes and dimensions of extraction cannulae — hollow, tubular instruments with holes at one end — to trap the fat. The cannula is attached to suction tubing through which the fat is removed.
Dr Lim will do his best to minimise scarring, and the location and length of your incisions will be discussed with you in the consultation process.
Fat removal surgery is individually customised to each patient depending on their personal requirements — during the consultation period, Dr Lim will take you through all available options and possible outcomes.
Liposuction may take a few hours and is performed under general anaesthetic in an accredited hospital. Depending on the extent of the procedure and the amount of fat to be removed, you may be discharged on the day of the surgery or you will be required to stay in hospital overnight.
You will be provided with a supportive garment that will help decrease the bruising and swelling, which must be worn for a few weeks after the surgery. Dr Lim will review you post-operatively and will prescribe analgesia and antibiotics for you to continue at home.
My Klinik staff will stay in touch with you after the procedure, monitor your progress and answer any questions or concerns as they arise. You’ll have reviews with Dr Lim one week, one month and three months after surgery.
Our goal is to make your experience as supportive as possible — Dr Lim and the My Klinik staff are always willing to answer any questions you may have.
