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 R24950 - R100000
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 R24,950 and there is an additional charge of R5,500.00for 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 
Facial Fat Transfer R19000 - R30000
Fat grafting is the procedure to remove excess fat cells from one part of the body to another part of the body. Many people correct sunken eyes with fat grafting because it returns a more youthful look to eyes. This procedure is not a Brazillian Butt Lift and can only be done on facial areas. 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 face lift 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.

The experience was top notch and I felt like I was in excellent care with a skilled surgeonGS, South Africa, 09 12 20

Had lipo section and ab etching 24 hours ago. So far so good, limited discomfort. Dr Padilha, his anesthesiologist Dr Mooruth (who really is excellent), Diana the RN and the entire staff were fantastic. Obviously, it is too early to comment on the final result, but the experience was top notch and I felt like I was in excellent care with a skilled surgeon and top-notch anesthesiologist. Based upon my experience thus far Dr Padilha clearly is five stars.

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.
