(Liposuction) in South Wales
Many of us are dissatisfied with our bodies, whether that’s stubborn pockets of fat you can’t burn off with diet and exercise or sagging excess skin that won’t tone up, however slim you are.
Depending on the individual’s needs, I can offer a range of different procedures and ensure that every procedure is bespoke, addressing your individual concerns, removing fat or excess skin on any area of the body.
Am I suitable for body contouring surgery?
For patients that are suffering from stubborn pockets of fat or wishing to achieve a more defined, sculpted appearance, I offer Lipo Under Local, a gentle but effective body contouring and fat reduction procedure using the BodyJet device.
It can be used on most areas of the body, including the arms, abdomen, flanks, thighs, knees and to shape the lower legs. It can also be used to improve definition on the chin and neck. During your consultation, we will discuss what you’re hoping to achieve and I will perform a thorough assessment. Then I can offer impartial advice on whether BodyJet Lipo or a cosmetic surgery procedure, such as an abdominoplasty, arm lift or thigh reduction, is the most appropriate procedure for you.
Lipo Under Local is often combined with cosmetic surgery procedures to produce optimal results as it allows me to closely sculpt and shape body contours.
It is important to realise that this is not a weight loss procedure. I advise patients that they should be at their ideal weight, which they have maintained for a period of time, to achieve optimal results.
What does a body contouring procedure with BodyJet entail?
This is a true walk in, walk out procedure. There is no need to have a general anaesthetic as the procedure is so comfortable, yet it produces highly effective results.
I make small incisions in the treatment area and insert a tiny tube called a cannula;
mild pulses of water pressure are then used to loosen the fat cells so they can easily be broken up and removed through the cannula.
What is the recovery period like after a BodyJet Liposuction procedure?
After your BodyJet procedure, we will perform a hilotherapy treatment which will reduce swelling and inflammation. Patients typically report that it also significantly reduces any discomfort after the procedure. You are then able to return home and we will provide you with a specially-designed compression garment and I advise patients to wear it during the recovery period for improved healing.
Recovery is relatively quick after a BodyJet Lipo procedure and typically there is much less bruising and swelling then that which can occur with other liposuction alternatives. After a couple of days, most patients report there is no discomfort and they are able to resume normal activities after a couple of weeks.
Are there any possible complications with a BodyJet Liposuction procedure?
BodyJet is a very gentle procedure and there should be no damage to the surrounding nerves and blood vessels so complications are minimal with this procedure. During your consultation, I will explain exactly what you can expect so you can make an informed decision before going ahead.
What results can I expect from my BodyJet Liposuction procedure?
Swelling usually fully disappears after a few months and the full and final results of your BodyJet Lipo procedure will be revealed. Liposuction is a very popular procedure and BodyJet provides a gentler, yet highly effective body contouring solution.
