John Davison, Liposuction Surgery

Liposuction is an excellent body contouring and shaping tool, it is not a weight loss operation. It can be performed under local or general anaesthetic. This can be done as a day case. It is best used for localised deep fatty tissue which is resistant to diet and exercise. The procedure usually takes about 1 hour although this varies. We use a technique called tumescent surgery. This involves injecting volumes of fluid containing local anaesthetic and adrenaline. You wear a compression garment for 6 weeks after surgery.

Most patients are able to walk, drive and even work within 1 week. The result continues to improve for up to 6 months
