Physicians of any specialism. The key unifying feature of all participants is their special interest in cosmetic procedures that are clinically proven, and have a long track record of patent satisfaction. Outpatient liposuction performed under local
anaesthesia is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure worldwide and has the most successful safety record.
There is no prerequisite for prior experience in liposuction. The course is comprehensive in scope and you will receive intensive instruction in all core aspects of liposuction.
You will receive hands-on instruction in the practical aspects of Liposuction. Delegates will function as first assistant to the lead surgeon on a rotating basis on each case. You will participate in the entire process from photography and marking, infiltration and aspiration to applying dressings and compression garments. You will have exposure to approximately 2-3 live cases during the course.
Increasing the delegate numbers would only be possible at the expense of significantly diluting the learning experience for the group as a whole. Learning opportunities are maximised by keeping numbers low. The instructor- participant ratio is 1:2. Nurses and surgical assistants may attend on day two of the course as observers.
The course is aimed solely at teaching the principles and techniques for performing liposuction in an office-based setting as a day-case. Patients are able to mobilise immediately following the procedure. Everything required to fulfil this need will be delivered on the course during the four days of instruction.
Upon successful completion of the course, all delegates will receive a certificate of attendance.
London Lipo Institute (LLI) specialise exclusively in courses focused only on Office Liposuction. This exclusive focus means we are 100% committed to ensuring our course offering remains as the 'gold-standard' course on liposuction - taught anywhere in the world today.
Non-invasive laser-based and ultrasound-based systems are not covered on the course. The clinical data supporting such proprietary systems are very limited, and hence the efficacy of these new modalities is still as yet unestablished. In addition, mesotherapy which is an injection-based technique for attempted localized fat removal is also not covered. Again, there is very limited clinical data to support the efficacy of mesotherapy.
Physicians will attend for both days, making up the complete course. Nurses/surgical assistants will attend on day two as observers and will also gain knowledge and understanding of the pre- and post-operative aspects.
In recent years, there has been increased interest in the creation of a surgical practitioner role worldwide. Recognising the value of the extended role they play in the operative environment, the faculty will assess each application individually as to their suitability for the Physicians course. Such applicants will usually be required to enrol on the nurses/ surgical assistant course as observers.
Refreshments and lunch are provided. There is a continental breakfast served daily.
A list of local partner hotels will be provided after successfully enrolling for the course. We also operate a complimentary shuttle service to and from the hotel for the two days.
