Diet and exercise can help with weight loss, but they are not as helpful in removing stubborn and unwanted bulges. Liposuction can be a good solution to obtain the ideal body shape and contour. During this procedure, the body will be sculpted into the patient’s ideal contour by getting rid of the fat cells. At Cosmetic Makeover, we offer several options.


Vaser Liposuction (Ultrasound Liposuction)

Vaser Lipo is a simple and quick way of hitting the target fatty areas simultaneously. It can remove as much as four litres of fat while allowing the patients to recover quickly – as quickly as the next day, allowing patients to go back to work the day after the surgery, in some cases. It also requires patients to be sedated or under local anaesthetic. Patients should be within 2 stone of their target weight. The procedure is ideal for treating multiple areas. It has a faster recovery period, although bruising, soreness, and swelling are normal occurrences after the procedure. Patients are required to wear a support garment.

Average duration of recovery: A few days

Surgical Liposuction

Surgical Lipo is designed for both men and women. This is recommended when there is a large amount of excess fat that has to be removed, often leading to patients having an overnight stay at the hospital. The surgery is often done along with a tummy tuck or another procedure. It can take up to 2 hours and around 2 weeks to a month to heal. The patient should be under general anaesthetic during the procedure and must be within 2 stone of their ideal weight. Surgical Lipo can be done on multiple areas at one time. An overnight stay is often required.

Average duration of recovery: 2 weeks to 1 month

Laser Lipolysis

Laser Lipo requires the patients to be under local anaesthesia that takes effect within a few hours. The patient should weigh within 2 stone of their target weight. The procedure can target one to two small areas. It uses the most advanced laser Lipo technology with fat removal, shaping, sculpting and contouring done through suction and Liposculpture. It makes the skin contract to completely remove loose skin. Laser lipolysis can be done right at the Cosmetic Makeover clinic clinic without any overnight stay. Compared to the other liposuction methods, this procedure has a shorter recovery period for the patients, who can also resume with their normal routine the next day.

Average duration of recovery: A few days


We have always told patients that liposuction should not be seen as an instant solution to obesity. Instead, they should still work at their weight through the recommended diet and exercise because this procedure works best when the patients are their healthy weight. It is an effective method of removing the last few pounds of stubborn fat. A single procedure can be done one various parts of the body and along with other procedures.


Most patients often ask our surgeons to perform liposuction in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Buttocks


Liposuction patients have to have local or general anaesthesia. The procedure is often done on the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, and buttocks. The surgeons push a cannula or hollow tube pass through the tiny cuts on the skin. Before sucking the fat out using a vacuum pump or syringe, they are first turned into liquid. The entire procedure can consume around 30 minutes to two hours depending on what technique our cosmetic surgeon and patient agreed on using, the quantity of fat to be removed, and the number of areas to be treated.


Liposuction patients have to take a couple of days off work, although it might take longer depending on how extensive the surgery was. Bruising and swelling in the treated areas are normal for a couple of weeks. Patients should wear a compression garment or proper support for a month to help abate the swelling. Exercise routines are off limits for a few weeks.


At Cosmetic Makeover, we are blessed to have expert and skilled liposuction cosmetic surgeons who can perform surgical and non surgicalprocedures. We can also explain how each type of procedure differs from each other and what would be appropriate for you given your goals and physical condition.
