Surgical Body Contouring

London Lipo Institute is renowned for its procedures for surgical body contouring.

Surgical body contouring procedures encompass:

– Advanced liposculpture

Liposculpture is an advanced form of liposuction but is slightly different to conventional liposuction. It is used particularly in the process of precision body contouring, which uses the removal and sometimes reshaping of fat to enhance the prominence and definition of muscles and certain problem areas of the body, like the abdomen, hips and thighs.

– Tummy tuck surgery

Both full tummy tucks and mini tummy tucks are performed. A tummy tuck procedure is well suited for those who have large deposits of lower abdominal fat, loose skin or stretch marks on the abdominal skin. A tummy tuck is also known as an abdominoplasty. We perform a new combined procedure which gives superior results over the long term.

– Buttock enhancement

The full range of surgical options is offered for buttock augmentation.

What type of anaesthesia do we use?

Light Sleep Anaesthesia is the use of medicines to induce a state of relaxation and a light sleep. The patient breathes on his/her own, and the rate of postoperative nausea is very low with this anaesthesia.

After arrival to the clinic, medications are given intravenously which induce a profound state of relaxation. Most often during Light Sleep Anesthesia, patients are asleep for the duration of the operation, resulting in very little memory of the operation itself. After this state is achieved, medicines are given to produce numbness in the area(s) being operated on. This type of anaesthesia is most frequently preferred by patients. Recovery is rapid and easy from Light Sleep Anesthesia, unlike general anaesthesia which often produces nausea after the surgery. Light Sleep Anesthesia also carries less risk of complications. After an operation in the surgery centre, patients are held in the recovery area for anywhere from several minutes to several hours. Once the patient is fully alert he/she may be driven home. The first night after surgery, someone must be at home with the patient.

After the procedure

You will be given detailed written instructions to follow after your surgery. You should also refer to the handout given to you detailing the procedure that you have gone through. This handout discusses your post-operative care from the completion of surgery through the first post-operative month.

The importance of having realistic expectations

It is important to have realistic expectations regarding cosmetic surgery. Surgery can improve one’s appearance or correct a physical imperfection, but it will never solve personal problems or create an entirely new face or body. Miraculous transformation is not possible.

The goal of cosmetic surgery is to improve or enhance appearance. Facial harmony and body shape can often be markedly improved, and features can be refined. It must be remembered that the surgeon does not start with a piece of clay or a blank slate. He or She uses his/her expertise to fashion and refine those features that are pre-existing.

Surgical procedures also affect individuals in different ways. Most people should expect some temporary swelling, discolouration and other minor discomforts. One must recognize that surgery is not an exact science. The improvements created on the operating table are subject to the imprecision’s of the healing process, the effects of age, health, skin tone, and the individual’s attention to following the post-operative instructions. Before deciding to have surgery, you must take into account all of these factors and realise your motivations, the process, and the benefits.
