Liposuction from Perfecta Cosmetic Surgery.


What is liposuction?

Liposuction removes fat using a suctioning process. It can be performed on its own, particularly for areas that you cannot shift by diet and exercise, or in combination with other procedures, such as tummy tuck, arm and thigh lift. The key to a good outcome is good quality skin that will shrink down after fat removal. 

Different types of liposuction

There are a number of different types of liposuction and this can cause confusion. All liposuction uses a thin metal tube with holes at one end (cannula) that is pushed through the skin into the fat. The other end is attached to a vacuum suction machine to suction the fat. Since its inception, a variety of new technologies have been applied to this simple system to improve the results.

Tumescent technique

This involves injection of a medical solution (Klein’s solution) into the fatty area before the fat is suctioned. This solution contains medicine to numb the area, to reduce bleeding, bruising and swelling, to aid the procedure and help you recover more quickly. 

Power-assisted liposuction (PAL)

This uses a high-tech vibrating cannula to break down fat to make the suction process smoother. MicroAire is the leading PAL in the UK. 

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL)

Ultrasound energy is applied to the liposuction cannula to help break down the fat cells and make the suction more efficient. VASER is one type of UAL.

Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL)

Uses low energy laser to heat fat to help assist suctioning. SmartLipo is one brand name of LAL. 

There is no good quality evidence to show that one technique is better than any other. The most tried and tested type of liposuction in the UK is PAL and this the the type we use routinely.

How is liposuction done?

Liposuction can be performed with you awake (local anaesthetic and sedation) or asleep (general anaesthetic), depending on the areas being treated and on what you would prefer. First, the areas to be treated are injected with a medical solution (tumescent technique). Small (5mm) incisions are made to allow insertion of the thin liposuction cannula. Suction is applied to the cannula to remove fat quickly and effectively. At the end, the small wounds are closed with dissolving stitches and small showerproof dressings. Afterwards we encourage you to wear lycra sportswear as much as possible for the first 3 months to help you settle down quickly and get good results.

Before treatment

First appointment

At Perfecta your care is led by your Consultant Plastic Surgeon. Your first appointment is with your surgeon a lasts round half an hour and includes specialist assessment. Then we will discuss how we can help you achieve the result you want. We will go through your options for treatment and then discuss liposuction in detail and answer any questions you may have. We will show you photographs of our patients who have had liposuction to show you the type of outcome we can achieve for you.

After your first appointment we will send you information about your treatment options and provide you with a fixed cost for your package of care. We will then give you time and space to decide what you would like to do. When you are ready our office team will help you book a date for your procedure and arrange a second appointment with your surgeon.

Second appointment

Your second appointment gives you the chance to meet your surgeon again and discuss your procedure in more detail. We will go through all the important information about your procedure, including the site of incisions (cuts) and subsequent scars. We will discuss your hospital care, anaesthetic and recovery and your aftercare plan. We will also discuss the potential risks and complications of surgery, so you are fully informed.

Pre-assessment appointment

A few weeks before your procedure you will have an appointment with our nurses for a pre-operative medical. Our nurses will tell you everything you need to know for the day of your procedure, such as what time to stop eating and drinking, what time to come in to the hospital, and what to bring with you. If you have any questions about these details or anything else then please ask your nurse or feel free to email or call us.

Do your research

Read up on your treatment options before your appointment. Good sources of information are our website and the BAPRAS website (www.bapras.co.uk) and BAAPS website (www.baaps.co.uk). It can be helpful to read blogs written by people who have had your procedure. But bear in mind they only have experience of their own journey. Your expert Consultant Plastic Surgeon and our experienced nurses have looked after hundreds of patients and have an unrivalled level of knowledge and understanding to help you. Ask us anything you want to know.

Come with a friend

It is a good idea to come to your appointment with someone – your partner, your mum, your best friend – you choose. But don’t worry if you do come on your own, we always have a nurse chaperone to keep you company.

Write down a list of questions 

In the week before your appointment make a note of any questions you want to ask. We will give you lots of useful information during your appointment. Afterwards we will email you with written information to help you make the right decision and make sure you are fully informed. Don’t worry if you forget what you wanted to ask. We will be seeing you for a second appointment or you can email us at any time.

Can I see photos of your work?

Yes of course. We will show you photographs of our patients who have had liposuction to show the type of improvement we can achieve.

Take some ‘before’ selfies

You might like to take some photos before your procedure to remind you how you used to look! We will also do this on the day of your procedure for your medical records. 

Can I get finance? 

The private hospitals we work with offer finance for your procedure. Please ask for further details at your consultation or click here for more information.

On the day of your procedure


Things to bring

Bring your phone and charger and a book or magazine. There is always a lot of waiting around in hospital so bring things to keep you amused. There is a TV in your private room and your partner, family member or friend can stay with you the whole time. Bring your dressing gown and slippers and you can stay comfortable in your favourite things whilst you wait.

Will I see my Consultant Plastic Surgeon on the day?

When you arrive at the hospital you will be shown to your private room and your nurse will get you ready for your procedure. At Perfecta your care is led by your Consultant Plastic Surgeon and you will see them again on the day of your procedure to go through some final paperwork, including the hospital consent form, take photographs for your medical records and do your pre-operative markings. Then you are ready to go.

Who will give my anaesthetic?

We only work with experienced Consultant Anaesthetists, all of whom are also NHS Consultant Anaesthetists. You will have the opportunity to meet your Consultant Anaesthetist before your procedure. They will complete your pre-operative assessment to make sure you are safe and ready to go ahead. They will talk you through the anaesthetic and your recovery. We take great care to make your procedure as smooth as possible and do lots of things to help you wake up without feeling sore or sick. 

Your package of care


All of your after-care is provided as part of your package of care, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. When you are ready to go home, the nurses will give you an appointment for your first check up a week later and again as needed. You will see your Consultant Plastic Surgeon 3 months after surgery. If you have any problems in between appointments then don’t worry, just give us a call, speak to the nurses and come back to see us.

When can I go home?

You should be fine to go home a few hours after your liposuction, once you feel ready and your nurse is happy.

How will I feel afterwards?

Most patients recover quickly after liposuction. You may need to take regular painkillers for the first few days and then just when you need them. You can expect some swelling and tenderness for a few weeks. We use showerproof dressings after liposuction so you can shower from day one. We advise you to wear lycra sportswear as much as possible for the first three months to help you settle quickly and get a great result.

When can I return to normal activities and work?

Please gently return to all your normal activities from day one. Most of our clients are back to most things (including work) after a week and are back to everything (Including the gym and exercise classes) in a month. You can drive as soon as you feel safe and able to do so.

When can I go on holiday?

This is a common question in clinic, particularly leading up to the summer. You could travel the following day if you need to. However it would be sensible to wait a couple of weeks. Most patients settle well and without any problems after surgery. However if you do have any issues then it is nice to be able to pop in and see us.

Sun protection and skin conditioning

The treated areas will be more sensitive in the sun for a while after surgery. Look after yourself in the sun, particularly in the first six months after your procedure. Factor 50 suncream and lots of moisturising cream (or Bio-oil) are helpful.

Are there any alternatives to liposuction?

Diet and exercise are the mainstay of slimming and fat reduction. Liposuction is most successful when he used to treat localised areas of fat access that cannot be reduced with diet and exercise alone. Liposuction also works well when done at the same time as other procedures, like tummy tuck and arm and thigh lift. There are a variety of non-surgical treatments to reduce fat but these procedures are largely unproven. They usually require multiple treatments over many months to see an improvement that may be only temporary.
