This type of procedure does not require any major invasive surgical procedures such as a Tummy Tuck. It is a liposuction procedure with minimal scarring and rapid recovery time.
The liposuction procedure is performed under twilight sedation. As such, no general anaesthetic is required, avoiding all associated risks.
Depending on the amount of fat that requires removal, more than 1 session could be needed.
Our surgeons can remove up to 5 litres of fat per session. Usually Mega Liposuction patients have around 10 litres removed. This means 2 sessions, spaced about 4 to 5 days apart. If a further procedure is required, a recovery time of 6 weeks is needed between the second and third session.
After a short recovery time spent at our clinic, you will be able to go home on the same day as your procedure.
The actual number of fat cells in a persons body remains stable during your lifetime. Unless we become grossly obese you do not grow more fat cells after adolescence. When the fat cells are removed by liposuction it is very difficult to gain fat back in those areas. The definition of the muscle will remain even if you put weight on, your fat will be evenly distributed after liposuction. These findings were published in the August issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. The full report can be read here.
