Liposuction

Liposculputre/Smart Lipo

Liposuction is a procedure designed to reduce localised deposits of body fat, where diet and exercise are not addressing the problem. This procedure is an affordable alternative and forms one of the cornerstones of “body contouring surgery” performed in his clinics.

This techniques has various benefits. Specifically it can be used to improve the shape of a patient’s body, such as the hips, waist, calf, ankle, belly, ‘saddlebags’, stomach, abdomen, thighs, breasts, chest, back of the upper arms, neck, chin, back of legs, buttocks, love handles and over-developed male breasts. Liposuction does not improve cellulite (the dimpled appearance of the skin of the buttocks and thighs) or stretch marks. It is certainly NOT a treatment for overall obesity and should not be viewed as a weight reduction procedure. It is important to have realistic expectations and Mr Banwell will speak to you in detail regarding these expectations and what can hopefully be achieved.

The more specialist and refined technique of liposculpture is excellent for generally slim, fit people with specific areas of fat deposition which cause concern. This relies on good quality elastic skin which will need to redrape in order to produce the desired effect. Mr Banwell will discuss your suitability for the technique at the consultation.

GARMENTS

Mr Banwell recommends the surgery be performed under a general anaesthetic undertaken by a specialist anaesthetist.

Usually the operation is best performed as a day case or overnight stay (depending on the number of sites on the body being undertaken). Most people report that pain, discomfort and stiffness of the first few days are minor side effects. Paracetamol is usually sufficient. It is necessary to take things easy for the first few days. A tight fitting elastic compression garment will be provided and this reduces the swelling of the treated areas. There is normally leakage of clear blood stained fluid from the small incisions that are used to perform the liposuction. Most people can return to work anywhere between a few days and two weeks after surgery and light activities can be resumed after two to three weeks. Normal activities can be resumed after six weeks after the operation. One to two weeks following the procedure you can commence massaging the affected areas of the liposculpting. Mr Banwell recommends this is performed professionally (using manual lymphatic drainage techniques or ultrasound) on a regular basis, while you are recovering.

There are both general and specific risks and Mr Banwell will talk to you in detail regarding these complications. General risks include bruising and swelling, bleeding, wound infection, problems with general anaesthetics and scars, abnormal scarring and keloid scarring and blood clots in the legs and lungs. Specific risks include uneven or asymmetrical results, including rippling, itching, dimpling and loose skin, fluid collections under the skin, skin discolouration, thrombophlebitis and permanent loss of sensation (temporary loss of sensation almost always occurs and recovers after some months).

My whole experience was made comfortable by warm, friendly and welcoming nursing staff. Mr Banwell has a lovely bedside manner and was more than happy to discuss my worried however strange. At 37 years of age and after 4 children I never thought I would have the tummy of an 18 year old again, Mr Banwell is a very clever man.
