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.

Rating from 51 Reviews When I went there I was quite satisfied with the clinicTshepo, South Africa, 09 May 17

I sent out bookings to a bunch of clinics and the only one with the decency to respond was the Melrose Aesthetic Centre. When I went there I was quite satisfied with the clinic. From the layout to the service everything was arranged to make my time with them as efficient and comfortable as possible. My only complaint was the price. If you are looking for quality medical treatment you should seriously consider going to the Melrose Aesthetic Center (Just try to save up before you do)

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.

Dr C Shaw

30 Camelford Rd, New Redruth, Alberton, 1449
Rating from 7 Reviews Since I had it done, my quality of life has improved 100%.Catherine, South Africa, 18 Jul 16

I had my breast augmentation procedure done in 2011 with Dr. Shaw. Five years and one baby later, I still have nice and perky breasts. People are often surprised to hear that I have had surgery, as I always get told, "I thought you have naturally nice boobs". Prior to this augmentation I had no confidence. My breasts were very saggy and not symmetrical due to scoliosis. Dr. Shaw gave sound advice on how to rectify my problem. He explained the whole surgery in detail to me, and also always took a lot of time to answer any questions when I had consultations with him. I would recommend his work any time. Since I had it done, my quality of life has improved 100%. I would urge anyone thinking about breast augmentation to have it done as soon as possible with this doctor. Dr. Shaw's work is second to none. Many, many thanks to him and his professional team. I chose this clinic because my mom had had her facelift done there, and she was very impressed with Dr. Shaw. His work on her was also excellent. His clinic is clean, neat, and modern. It's not too big that you feel like a lost cow on a cattle ranch, but spacious enough for comfortable recovery. To this day, Dr. Shaw's rooms and operating there have been the best hospital facility I have seen and been in.

Rating from 12 Reviews His work is a masterpiece, to put it in a nutshell, my stomach is now as flat as a pancakeRonell, cape town, 29 Sep 16

I had struggled with weight issues for all my life. Before pregnancy it was easy to lose but also easy to gain it all back... Sitting at 3 digits on a scale after the kids came along I eventually reached the point of making my life better. Few years later, 3okg down . I finally achieved A body that was close to what IV wanted, but i needed a surgical intervention . I had tried losing weight on various diets. A kg here and a kg there.until I found a plan that worked well for me. Then the kgs melted off. Hard work paid off and I then believed I deserved something to make my hard work shine through even more. Of course yes, before I met my Dr I had numerous reservations. I was very intimidated about having such an invasive procedure. I didn't know if this was the right choice for me. Dr maresky gave me a not only a new body but a new lease on life. It's only been a few weeks but my confidence is immeasurable and the new friend that i have gained in him is invaluable. Believe me when I say that this is a Dr in a million. He makes you feel as though you are his single most important patient and you feel as though there is no challenge too great for him. His compassion and non judgemental character and excellent bedside manner makes for one great doctor... And the results speak for themself. Dr maresky equipped me with all the knowledge I needed to make an informed decision. He was patient and intuitive to my individual needs and never placed me under pressure. He made my decision mine completely and after my procedure I can guarantee that I have no regrets. His work is a masterpiece... To put it in a nutshell... Flat as a pancake am i :-)

Dr. Suleman Vadia

087 550 4882 9 Guild Road, Milpark Hospital, Parktown, The Zone Razorite Health Centre, 177 Oxford Road, Rosebank, 2196, Johannesburg, 2193
Rating from 15 Reviews It's only been 3 months and I have never been happier with my resultsLerato, Centurion, 29 Sep 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.

I am 52 years old and a sun baby. I decided to freshen my look with a mini face lift while I am still young. Dr Chris van der Walt advised me to start with my eyes and then combined it with a mini face lift and chemical peel. I am 2 weeks post op and can recommend this doc to anyone. I am very pleased I made this choice and I am very happy with my results so far. His prices also allow the average person able to afford the benefit. Very good
