What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure where localized fat is broken up and sucked out of the body.  Liposuction is performed by making small incisions in the body in order to insert a thin tube, or cannula, through the incision into localized fat deposits between the skin and muscle of the patient. A suction pump or syringe is then used to suck out localized fat deposits.

What is the recovery time after Liposuction?

Recovery time after liposuction is usually one to two weeks, depending on the area of the body and the amount of localized fat sucked out.  You will see the end results of Liposuction within one to four months after the procedure.

Is Liposuction Painful?

Liposuction is painful but most surgeons perform the procedure under general anaesthesia to ensure that patients don’t feel pain. They also prescribe painkillers for relieving pain after surgery.

Is Liposuction Permanent?

The liposuction procedure permanently removes localized fat. The patient’s body will retain its contour after liposuction, provided the patient does not gain weight.

What is Non-Surgical Liposuction?

Liposuction procedures that do not use injections or incisions are called non-surgical liposuction procedures. These procedures are performed using laser energy, ultrasound, cryotherapy or radiofrequency.

Liposuction Recovery Tips?

Following the doctor’s post-procedure instructions helps patients to recover quickly and effectively after a liposuction procedure. These will include taking sufficient rest, taking prescribed anti-biotics and pain-killers and wearing compression garments correctly. The patient should also start moving as soon as possible to prevent blood clots but should avoid strenuous activities for at least a month.

I received fantastic serviceClaudia, South Africa, 27 06 19

Wow, I don't even know where to begin. I chose this clinic because of the amazing reviews. This place is absolutely gorgeous and you feel so welcome and at home. I had my liposuction done yesterday I did 8 areas on my body, and the service that I received was out of this world. The two nurses Granny and Maria are the best nurses that I have ever had, they are so friendly and caring and they took such good care of me. I adore them. Thank you, ladies, you are one of a kind. Dr Cohen is very professional and I don't think I would have gotten a better Dr anywhere else than Dr Cohen. Nurse Natalie also took such great care of me in her aftercare facility. I had the best food and the most comfortable beautiful room. She was there the whole time to look after me and see if I'm ok. I give this clinic and the team more than 5 stars. Thank you so much to each team member. I received fantastic service. Now I have to wait to heal so I can see my results and I'm sure it's going to be excellent results. Once again thank you Face And Body Place for your friendliness and professionalism.

Liposuction R 19950 - R 60000
Liposuction is ideal for patients who want to eliminate areas of fat deposits that are resistant to exercise and diet. These fat deposits give rise to unwanted body shape and are often described by patients as “stubborn fat”. The body areas that are most commonly a concern for patients and result in their seeking out treatment options are the inner thighs and inner knees, saddlebags, the abdomen, love handles and lower back fat, upper arms, buttocks, and double chins. In men, Liposuction has been found effective in treating unwanted fat deposits in the male chest area. * The costs of the treatment is determined by the areas you want to have treated. The first area costs R19,950 and there is an additional charge of R5,000.00 for each subsequent area. Please feel free to read additional information on our website. You can also view the chart below for the areas that can potentially be treated. Should you wish to further your inquiry we would need to set up an office consultation in order to assess your requirements and determine the cost for the procedure.  Consultation costs R750 
Fat Transfer
Fat Grafting R 15000 - R 70000
Fat transfer also known as Fat Grafting is a procedure whereby fat is relocated from one part of the body to another or to the face. After the fat is removed it is prepared and then placed in the new location. Fat Transfer is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed under local anaesthetic as opposed to general anestheticIt is a walk-in walk-out procedure, so no hospital stay is involvedResults are more natural-lookingConsiderably less pain and no scarringNo lengthy time off work or away from daily activitiesAs we age, one of the things that we may notice is the loss of volume in the face, as well as hands, and other areas. Loss of volume is often accompanied by loss of skin elasticity which can further concerns patients. The progressive effects of time on your skin, as well as changes in soft tissue, and other deeper structural components of the face and body bring about appearance changes that include changes in skin texture, loss of plumpness and volume especially in the face, and hands as well as in the female breast. The affected areas appear more angular or bony, adding to the perception of ageing. Gravity, bone thinning, decreased tissue elasticity and subcutaneous fat loss all exacerbate this. In respect of the face, for many who wanted to rejuvenate a more youthful appearance, a facelift was usually considered the go-to option, but that comes with high costs and lengthy recovery time, as well as pain and inconvenience to life in general. Recent years have seen a significant increase in the number of non-surgical procedures performed for facial rejuvenation. Men and women seeking alternatives to surgical procedures include those who require restoration of lost facial volume, those who wish to enhance normal facial features, and those who want to correct facial asymmetry.

I thought the hospital was really good, and my doctor was first-classAnonymous, South Africa, 22 04 18

I had my breast implants done at this clinic. I chose Sunninghill because I wanted Dr Padilha to perform the surgery. I’m very happy with my new breasts, and I wouldn’t mind using this hospital for future treatments. There was one issue regarding the price, though. Dr Padilha assured me I’d only need to pay his fee, but then the hospital sent us an extra bill. The situation is being looked into. This was the only glitch during my entire experience. I thought the hospital was really good, and my doctor was first-class. I had one follow-up afterwards, and the Dr Padilha told me I could give him a call if I had any issues or questions. I’ve been to quite a few other hospitals, so I know Sunninghill is brilliant. If the doctor prescribes any medication, there’s even a pharmacy in the hospital and you can just pop down to go and buy it. It’s such a good place to receive treatment; I always feel so comfortable here.

It's only been 3 months and I have never been happier with my resultsLerato, Centurion, 29 09 17

I was contacted by Dr. S Vadia's office, shortly after I enquired on the platform regarding a botched liposuction procedure I had 6months prior. I had previously had liposuction on my arms, thighs and tummy area. My tummy area, however, was uneven and botched with very little hope. After various consultations with Dr. Vadia, which he didn't charge me for (Really God sent, as we all know how expensive these can be), I was finally ready to have my tummy tuck done. Fast forward, it's only been 3 months and I have never been happier with my results. I saw within a week (swollen and all) that my tummy area had really been restored and actually looked better than before any of my surgeries.His work speaks volumes!! The staff at Dr. Vadia's rooms are extremely professional, friendly and an absolute pleasure. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Vadia and his team not once was I made to feel unwelcome or substandard. I was always kept in the loop regarding my procedure, hospital stay and so forth. Thank you so much, Dr. Vadia.

The procedure was offered at a good priceMagda, South Africa, 14 08 17

I went to see Dr. Susan F Johnson's clinic to have a Tummy Tuck appointment and I was very pleased with all the good service. The treatment was very efficient as I no longer have the excess fat. The procedure was offered at a good price, so I feel it was of good value. I was pleasantly surprised at how efficient the staff was and how dedicated they were at providing me quality service.

My confidence is fantastic and only 3 weeks post-op, I feel fantasticCatherine, UK, 08 01 19

5-star treatment by a 5 star Surgeon! I travelled from Ireland to have both breast augmentation and liposuction with Dr Gideon Maresky and It was the best trip and decision ive ever made in my life. Travelling ofcourse I was aprehenisve however Dr Maresky made me feel very calm and at ease from beginning to end. He was the only surgeon to reply to my query, he was extremely informative and also a very genuine and down to earth person which made this experience so easy. If anyone is thinking of any kind of surgery I cannot recommend Dr Maresky enough! He is a fantastic surgeon and person. My work is magic and its all so natural I still am me and look like me only a new and improved me and it feels so amazing. My confidence is fantastic and only 3 weeks post-op, I feel fantastic and already back training at my gym. Everyone involved in this experience was absolutely world class the nurses, his PA, the Anesthetist and ofcourse the Surgeon. I was swimming in the Sea one-week post-op, I enjoyed a lovely holiday post-op and I had the best sleep of my life during the operation. I really want to say a huge thank you to Dr Maresky and his team you have improved my life. If I'm ever thinking of any surgery again I will most definetly travel 6000 miles to have the 5-star experience again.
