Liposuction is a technique used to remove small amounts of stubborn fat in localized areas. This is used as a method of body sculpting and should not be considered as a weight-loss surgery.
Dr Sng performs mainly 2 types of liposuction - Microaire power-assisted liposuction and Vaser ultrasound- assisted liposuction.
Vaser liposuction uses an ultrasound probe which enables ultrasound energy to break down or emulsify the fat, leaving nerves and blood vessels intact. This helps to reduce the amount of post-surgical bruising.
Power assisted liposuction with tumescent infiltration is a well established technique for liposuction & body contouring. Excellent outcomes can be achieved by this method.
Liposuction is performed under general anaesthesia or light sedation. It is a day surgery procedure. You will be required to wear a compression garment for about 3-4 weeks as this helps to reduce the postoperative swelling and bruising.
You should be able to return to work after a week. Recovery may take longer if multiple areas are treated.
Fat deposits can build up in the same area after liposuction. Therefore, we strongly advocate a modification of lifestyle to include regular exercise and a healthy diet to optimize and maintain the result of liposuction.
With Dr Sng’s passion and commitment, we strive to provide patients with a highly personalized, transparent, effective and comfortable experience from the first time you step in our clinic to full recovery.
