What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a sophisticated method that uses suction to remove accumulated fats. The procedure sees a fine cannula inserted through a small incision, and connected to a vacuum pump (suction-assisted lipoplasty). Accumulated excess fat is carefully removed through the suction process. After liposuction, we offer an additional treatment of ‘AccuSculpt laser that increases the level of skin tightening and lifting, whilst stimulating collagen production to improve skin elasticity and prevent sagging. 

Areas for Liposuction

Process of Liposuction

A fine cannula (2-3mm thick) is inserted in the layer of fat to inject local anesthetic (lidocaine) and vasoconstrictor (epinephrine).

After 15 to 20 minutes, the vacuum cannula is inserted into the layer of fat under skin.

Absorbed fats are removed by moving the cannula under the skin layer to create an even and smooth finish.

Post-liposuction use of ‘AccuSculpt laser’ treatment to increase the skin lifting and tightening effect.

Careful suturing of the incision and application of compression bandages to aid fast healing.

What Our Customers Say

“Liposuction is a common procedure and it seemed the natural choice to go to Pitangui as many of my friends had also had it done there. I had it done on my thighs and hips and am very pleased with the results."
“I had Liposuction done to smooth down my abdomen. Exercise alone never seemed to reach that troubled spot, so Dr Jea Sung Yoo recommended this procedure. I am so happy with the outcome, I can enjoy wearing cropped tops and bikinis again!”
