Liposculpture body contouring

Liposculpture is considered an artistic intervention as it defines and sculpts the figure. It can be performed on any part of the body, face, neck, arms, abdomen, breasts, hips, buttocks, back and thighs.  It is a combined technique as it involves 3 to 4 areas of the body; it is usually performed on the waist, abdomen and thighs. 

Removing Fat


The surgery involves the removal of fat through 1 cm incisions where a cannula is inserted to extract or suction the fat.
