What is liposuction surgery?

Liposuction is a surgical cosmetic procedure done by our highly experienced plastic surgeons Dr Lemierre and Dr Dumas in our London clinic. This surgery removes areas of stubborn fat from areas of the body that haven’t responded to diet and exercises. The lipo procedure improves and reshapes almost any area of the body, such as the chin, arms, tummy, tuck, belly or thighs. Liposuction also allows redrawing the body contours.

This procedure is not a weight loss alternative. You may be a good candidate if you are not overweight but have fat in specific localized areas.

It is important to know that liposuction reduces the number of fat cells by destroying them. These cells will not come back in the area if your weight remains stable.

The surgery is suitable either for men or women. The approach on men and women is different because, according to the sex of the patient, the fat is distributed differently in the body.

Liposuction for Men

Males have a body shape called “android”, the accumulation of fat is mainly on the upper body; the belly, chest, arms, back and neck. Excess of fat in the chest area is common in men who were overweight in adolescence.

It is important to note that a liposuction does not replace a diet and is not suitable for people who want to lose weight.
