Liposuction is done either under local anaesthesia with intravenous sedation. The surgoen will discuss this with you and recommend what is best for your individual situation.
Depending on the area involved, several small, inconspicuous incisions are made. Diluted local anesthesia is then infused in order to reduce bleeding and trauma. A thin, hollow tube called a cannula is then inserted through the incisions to loosen the excess fat, which is then suctioned out of the body. This is repeated as necessary until results are achieved. The procedure may take from 1-3 hours, depending on the amount of fat to be removed. Depending on the type of liposuction used, your incisions may be left open to promote draining. It is NORMAL to have fluid draining out after a liposuction surgery during the first 24 hrs.
Following your procedure you may want to recover in one of our beautiful partner hotels including the world famous Grove hotel. You will receive a care package from us and our staff is available to you while you stay with us.
You will see your surgeon the day after your surgery and at specified intervals during the weeks following your surgery. This is done so that the doctor can personally monitor your recovery process, and to ensure that you have the best results possible.
When liposuction is completed, there will be swelling and bruising. You will have some discomfort, which can be controlled by the pain medication prescribed by your surgeon. You may also be required to wear tight compression garments or elastic bandage for several weeks to help reduce swelling, as well as compress the skin to the new body contour. This will depend on the area that had the procedure. If needed (very rarely), temporary drains will be placed beneath the skin to help remove any excess fluid or blood. While results will be seen almost immediately, swelling will distort the actual results. Final results will take several months to subside.
Depending on the amount of lipo, you can return to work in 2-3 days. If more extensive liposuction is performed, you may want to take off one week from work. Swelling will be present, but begins to reduce in about 7-10 days. Mild exercise is permitted after 2 weeks, and full activity can be resumed in about 4-6 weeks. Swelling will continue to reduce, but there may be some remaining for 3-5 months before it is completely gone.

I had neck/jaw Lipo on Friday evening 16/10/15 after wanting it done since I was 16 as I have never had a jaw line or definition in my neck as always had a slope.The team have been absolutely fantastic. First of all arranging it on a Friday evening so I could have longer to recover over the weekend so I can go back to work on Monday. The communication from everyone has been fantastic. The procedure was great (If you can say great about a tube sucking out fat from your neck!). But seriously made me feel such at ease, comfortable and felt in such safe hands. The surgeon was so meticulous and careful which was great as the neck and jaw are visible to all. I was given a number of one of the surgeons whom I could contact if I had any queries or problems and also Michelle's contact details. This I must say has been extremely helpful. Seriously would not get that kind of patient care and attention anywhere I know and from anywhere I know of people have gone to. Great price, great customer care and attention and great professional and qualified team. Thank you to you all, it really means so much to me, its a massive life changer for me and I have all of you to thank for that! :)
