- Is liposuction painful?
Liposuction is not painful, as anaesthesia is administered before the surgery begins. There may be soreness and pain during the recovery period but painkillers can be used to handle it.
- Can I have liposuction if I’m obese?
Definitely not - liposuction is not a treatment for obesity. Patients need to have a stable weight and be in good health before liposuction surgery.
- What’s the difference between a tummy tuck and liposuction?
A tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin tissue from the body. Liposuction is used to remove fatty tissue only and scarring is almost unnoticeable.
