FAQS

Quick find
  • What is Mega Liposuction?
    • Mega Liposuction is where a large amount of fat (up to 15 litres) is removed from patients who are overweight or suffer from obesity.

      Mega Liposuction is an effective weight loss treatment for overweight patients. Not only is there an immediate reduction in weight, but this treatment can also help the patient kick-start a healthy lifestyle, an exercise program, a healthy diet, and can lead to a reduction in overall appetite. Read more here

      This type of cosmetic 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 Procedure. What does it involve?
    • 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 cosmetic surgeons can remove up to 5 litres of fat from various problem areas per session. Usually Mega Liposuction patients have around 10 litres removed. This means 2 sessions (treating multiple areas), 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.

      After the operation is it important to note that you may experience some discomfort as well as swelling and light bruising. These symptoms will subside in a few days and won’t last long-term after the liposuction treatment.

  • Do the fat cells come back?
    • 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.

  • Results. What and when can I expect them
    • In most cases, patients who have Mega Liposuction see results at 6 weeks. The final results (often showing the best results) can take up to 6 months. This will vary from patient to patient.

  • Are there any risks of complications?
    • Studies have shown that Vaser technology has less complications compared to other UAL methods.

      There are inherent risks and complications as there are with any surgery. You should be aware of the potential risks of a lipo procedure and discuss any concerns you may have with your doctor before your surgery is performed.
