Here at Montreal International Clinic, liposuction and body contouring procedures are our area of expertise. Our brilliant team of doctors are forerunners in their fields of Liposuction, Body Contouring and Fat Transfer. Together, our Doctors have performed the highest number of successful liposuction procedures in Dubai.
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery technique that can help shape the body by removing undesirable fat from specific body locations, leaving a much more defined shape. The procedure is also known as liposculpture or suction-aided lipectomy. It is normally combined with an abdominoplasty procedure, (also known as a Tummy Tuck), which helps to eliminate the excess skin and tissue for a thorough body sculpting procedure.
Why do we have so much of unwanted fat?
No matter how much you diet or exercise, there can be areas in your body laced with stubborn pockets of excess fat that just won’t shift. With our forever busy lives, it means our body can suffer a consequence, gaining excess body fat at a distressing rate as we age - putting our healthiness at risk. Finding a way to get your body back soon doesn't have to be impossible, thanks to the team of doctors who introduced liposuction in Dubai.
The liposuction treatment can be implemented on any area of the body – chin, breasts, hips, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, upper arms, or knees – provided that the patient is suitable and in good health for the procedure. Liposuction treatment is not a substitute for dieting and exercise and we advise that it may not be suitable for patients who only just want to lose excess weight.
The procedure at our facility can take between 1 and 3 hours, depending on the selection of areas being treated by Liposuction. Some patients may be discharged in one day while others may be required to stay in the hospital overnight for monitoring.
Liposuction can be performed by itself or even combined with other plastic surgery procedures, such as a facelift, breast reduction or abdominoplasty to make sure the patient accomplishes the best results.
Who makes a good candidate for Liposuction?
- Be of average or only slightly above your average weight (within BMI)
- Have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone
- Be in good overall health without any a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can weaken healing
- Have concentrated pockets of fat that do not respond well to diet and exercise
- Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for body contouring
The procedure for liposuction is carried out by our expert team of surgeons at Montreal International Clinic and the procedure involves an initial consultation, where the surgeon will give the patient a steady no nonsense briefing of the process of liposuction. It’s very important to understand all aspects of your liposuction procedure. Thereafter, a general or local anaesthesia is administered to the patient, depending on the location that is being treated.
Liposuction is then performed through small, inconspicuous incisions. A thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through the incisions to loosen excess fat using a controlled back and forth movement. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the location using a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.
The overall result of liposuction will only be visible once the swelling and fluid retention, (which is common among liposuction patients), goes down.
During the recovery period, the patient may need to wear a compression garment or elastic bandages to cover the treatment area, once the procedure is completed, it helps to control swelling and compress the skin to the new body contours. Apart from this, small temporary drains may be placed in existing incisions beneath the skin to remove any excess blood or fluid. Patients will be given medications, either to spread on or to be taken orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection. The surgeons at Montreal International Clinic, insist that the patient comes in for a follow-up visit to make sure the surgical site is healthy and is healing well.
As with all the cosmetic surgery treatments, it’s important that the patient has realistic expectations and weigh the risks, pros, cons and their goals prior to proceeding with Liposuction. The results of liposuction will be long lasting, provided that the patient maintains a healthy weight and exercise regularly. Most of the cosmetic surgery processes have some risks involved and there is no exception when it comes to liposuction. However, liposuction has proven to have a good safety record and its risks are reduced when done carried out by a team of board-certified cosmetic surgeons at Montreal International Clinic in Dubai.
Most patients return to work within two days after tumescent liposuction. Because of the substantial decrease in swelling, tenderness and pain after liposuction, patients are able to return to normal physical activities very soon after the procedure.
