Who can have Liposuction:+ View more info
Liposuction sculpts or re-contours the body and it must be stressed that the aim is to alter the patients shape, rather that his or her overall weight. It is certainly effective in the removal of unwanted bulges and in improving the silhouette, but it is not a method for the treatment of general obesity. Fat cells removed by Liposuction are permanently removed and fat can never regenerate in the treated area. However, one may still gain excess weight and fatty bulges in other areas.
The Procedure+ View more info
Dr Zacharia prefers to perform the Liposuction procedure in combination with Vaser Liposuction due to its ability to help reduce swelling, bruising and possible skin retraction.
The Liposuction process involves the insertion of a slender, hollow metal tube of cannula through a small incision and by repeated movement, fat globules are separated and removed by vacuum suction through this tube. The area treated is injected with various solutions prior to insertion of the cannula, in order to reduce bleeding and to assist breakdown and loosening of the fat globules.

Incisions are small and are concealed in a skin fold near the site to be reduced, thus scars are virtually undetectable. Usually only one small incision is needed for each specific area.
The operation may be carried out under general, twilight or local anaesthesia, depending on the complexity of the case. Operation time will depend on the number and extent of areas treated.
