Liposuction in Dubai

liposuction dubaiHere 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 Procedure

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.

Liposuction FAQ

1What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that modifies the body's contour by eliminating excess fat deposits located between the skin and muscle.
2Am I suitable for Liposuction Surgery?
The suitability for liposuction treatment is defined as any individual who has realistic expectations, is in good health and is likely to be content with the results of liposuction.
3What Realistic Expectations should I have of My Liposuction Surgery?
After any liposuction procedure, the new body’s contour is more or less permanent. If a patient does manage to gain a reasonable amount of weight after liposuction treatment, then the figure will simply be a larger version of the new body shape, as the fat cells that are removed by liposuction will not grow back.
4Which body areas can receive Liposuction treatment?
The most commonly treated areas for women are the neck, cheek, arms, breasts, abdomen, hips, outer thighs, front thighs, and inner thighs, In men, the most frequently treated areas include the chin and neck area, abdomen, flanks ("love-handles"), and breasts.
5What are the complications and risks of Liposuction?
Liposuction treatment is incredibly safe with very few substantial side effects. However, we do not recommend liposuction treatment to be simultaneously done with any other surgical procedure. As judged by current international experience, liposuction is proven incredibly safe. Occasionally problems that can possibly happen following treatment include; bleeding, infections, nerve injury and skin ulcerations.
6What kind of Qualifications should a Liposuction Surgeon have?
Liposuction treatment is most frequently performed by surgeons who have attained special training in the methods of liposuction. At Montreal International Clinics, our cosmetic surgeons are internationally certified and with many years of experience of having treated individuals with cosmetic procedures.
7Will there be Pain or Discomfort after Liposuction Surgery?
Like any surgery, there will be some minor discomfort post liposuction surgery. During the first 48 hours, patients may expect a slight discomfort based on the type of anaesthesia used during the procedure. Soreness and tenderness is expect to decrease steadily soon after.
8How soon will I recover from Liposuction treatment?
The local anaesthetics will be administered prior to surgery and it will be in place for 12 to 24 hours following liposuction surgery, keeping you relaxed and pain free. Once your observation period is complete, you will be able to leave the facility and return home.
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.
9How does Abdominal Liposuction Differ from a "Tummy Tuck"?
A tummy tuck also known as abdominoplasty, is a major surgical technique demanding general anaesthesia, and involves liposuction and removal of fat, plus a large excision of skin. In most patients liposuction of the abdomen can often provide equivalent or better results than a tummy tuck. Since liposuction is safer and causes fewer damaging scars and is comparatively easier to recover compared to tummy tucks, abdominal liposuction is now more popular and common than tummy tuck treatments.
10Are touch-ups required?
In general, with liposuction, the revision rate is believed to be around 25%. However, At Montreal International Clinics, our surgeons possess the skill and experience to perfect the procedure during the initial incision to prevent further treatment unless specifically required by patients for touch ups.
