Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that removes excess fat from one or more areas of the body. It can be used for small areas, such as the space under the chin or for larger areas, including the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips or knees.

Liposuction is also referred to as lipoplasty, suction lipectomy, or body contouring. It is a relatively safe procedure and involves a very simple process. A tiny incision is made within the target area into which a small tube is inserted. Fat cells are broken down via the movement of the tube and then sucked away.

Many people resort to liposuction when they struggle to shift stubborn fat in particular areas, despite regular exercise and a healthy diet. They may have lost weight in other parts of their body, but certain areas remain. Liposuction is a very successful way to permanently eliminate excess fat from around your body.

Tummy tuck / abdominoplasty

Often the skin becomes stretched and loose following pregnancy or rapid weight loss. Stretch marks may also be a problem. Others want to remove a “roll of fat” surrounding their abdomen. All these issues can be resolved by an abdominoplasty.

During a tummy tuck excess skin and fat is removed from the lower abdomen. The aim is to create a flatter, firmer and more contoured stomach. During the procedure the surgeon will make an incision along the bikini line and a second around the belly button. If necessary, abdominal muscles (perhaps damaged during pregnancy) may also need to be tightened and repaired. Excess skin and fat are removed then a new belly button is formed. Liposuction is often performed in conjunction with this procedure.

For those with only a small amount of excess skin, a mini-tummy tuck may be recommended. Muscle repair is not undertaken, therefore the belly button does not need to be repositioned and a much smaller incision can be made.

VASER Liposuction

At Harley Street Specialist Hospital, we can offer specialised VASER liposuction. This is an advanced body sculpting technique. By removing the fat around muscle groups, it creates a sculpted, athletic appearance, making muscles look more defined.

The VASERlipo® System uses minimally invasive ultrasound technology for precision body contouring. VASERlipo produces eye-catching results in just one procedure and the technology provides many benefits versus traditional liposuction treatments.

Thigh lift / arm lift

Our experienced plastic surgeons also offer a variety of surgical procedures to reduce excess skin after weight loss. This can include relatively straightforward procedures, for example on the upper arms or inner thighs, commonly referred to as thigh lifts or arm lifts.

Cosmetic gynaecological surgery

Our surgeons offer a range of cosmetic gynaecological options including vaginal rejuvenation, labioplasty to reduce or reshape the labia and vaginoplasty, vaginal tightening.
