Liposuction can be a great option for removing stubborn pockets of fat on your body that are resistant to diet and exercise. At The Lotus Clinic, our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Chandra Patel, is experienced in advanced body-contouring techniques and can utilise liposuction to target a number of problematic areas, including the stomach, buttocks, waist, thighs, back, and arms. Liposuction from Dr. Patel can effectively remove stubborn fat deposits and help you sculpt your body to achieve the contours you desire.

Benefits of Liposuction
Despite healthy eating habits and long hours in the gym, particular areas of fat can be seemingly impossible to shed. Liposuction from Dr. Patel can target excess fat cells and effectively remove them from difficult-to-tone areas all over your body. Additionally, liposuction can be combined with a number of other cosmetic procedures – including tummy tuck surgery, body lift, and breast augmentation – to help you achieve the most aesthetically-pleasing results. Although this procedure is not a weight loss solution on its own, when a healthy diet and proper exercise routine are maintained after treatment, liposuction can help you contour your body with long-lasting results.
The Liposuction Procedure
Performed under general anesthesia, Dr. Patel administers liposuction in our office on an outpatient basis. During treatment, small incisions will be made on the targeted areas through which a very thin tube is inserted for fat removal. Fat cells will be broken up and suctioned through the tube until the desired contour is achieved. The process will then be repeated depending on how many areas you wish to address.
Procedural times will vary based on the extent of your goals, but the entire process generally takes about two hours to complete. Most patients are able to return home the day of their operation.
Recovery from Liposuction
Following your treatment, Dr. Patel will discuss a personalised recovery plan with you based on your particular needs. Swelling and bruising can be expected in the weeks after your liposuction procedure, and any discomfort can be managed with medication. Results will continue to improve as swelling subsides, and final results will typically be apparent after about four to six weeks. Dr. Patel may recommend that you wear a compression garment for a specified period of time to enhance your final results. He also encourages some physical activity beginning a few days after your treatment to increase blood flow and aid the healing process.
