Overview

Liposuction is the selective removal of adipose tissue (fat) from areas of the body. It is important to be aware that although liposuction is not a weight loss tool, it is very effective in removing areas of stubborn unwanted fat.

What to expect

The way Dr Wetton performs liposuction usually results in not too much post operative pain. Patients usually need to take pain killers for 1-2 days after their surgery. You may have some swelling and bruising, this is expected for liposuction. You will be given a post operative garment, which is useful in helping the swelling to slowly go down. Patients normally take around a week off work after a liposuction procedure.

Procedure specific risks: Bleeding, haematoma, seroma, infection, necrotising fasciitis (extremely rare), fat embolism, poor healing scars, damage to underlying structures such as organs and nerves.
