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 had no problem with the service or the staff, who were always friendly and professionalBilly, Johannesburg, 14 11 17

I decided to go for liposuction at The Melrose Aesthetic Centre. The clinic is near to my home and I chose them so that it would be convenient for me to go back for follow-ups and so on. It is too early to determine whether the procedure was good value for money because I’m still waiting to see the results. I had no problem with the service or the staff, who were always friendly and professional, but I did encounter a few problems after the surgery and I had to go back several times. Soon after having liposuction, water started leaking from my legs - this was really uncomfortable. I don’t think it would be fair to blame the clinic or the doctors there because other people have seen good results. Maybe my body is just different and that’s why this surgery didn’t work well for me. I’m still the exact weight I was before I began treatment.

Liposuction R 24950 - 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.
Facial Fat Transfer R 15000 - R 70000
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.

My experience with them was rather favorableChisani, South Africa, 05 05 17

“Having to go for any medical procedure can be a bad experience with the wrong institution, fortunately, when you are exposed to quality service as I was when I went to Vive Cosmetic Surgery, you do not need to have such concerns. My experience with them was rather favorable. Their treatment was very good. The clinic was extremely clean, they charged me accordingly and the staff was very friendly and accommodative.

I am truly satisfied with the surgeriesNatasha, Melbourne , 25 02 20

Coming from overseas I’d like to say that from the back and forth correspondence to the continuum of care received pre and post-surgery has been indeed impeccable! I am truly satisfied with the surgeries (tummy tuck, arm lift and liposuction), even though it’s been approximately four weeks post-surgery. I highly recommend Dr Vadia and his amazing team!

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.

I was very grateful to get advice from such an honest doctorAdebisi, Lagos, 18 12 17

I had liposuction done with Dr Gideon. What drove me to visit him were the wonderful reviews on the website. The thing that impressed me most was the fact that everyone said he was so personal, that he got on the phone and just reached out to them. I knew I wanted that kind of service - someone I could talk to and who would understand me. The reviews painted such a good picture of him, and when I got there I thought he was exactly the way everyone had described. The reception was great and the facility itself was fantastic. Dr Gideon gave me candid advice - it wasn’t about getting money out of me, but rather about providing me with the best possible treatment. I wanted something very specific and he told me what he thought would work well, and also pointed out cheaper options. I was very grateful to get advice from such an honest doctor. What I wanted was totally different to what I ended up with, but the price was good and I’d done research outside of the site so I knew I was getting a competitive rate. The doctor was really great and there’s nothing to complain about. They called and emailed me afterwards to hear how I was recovering. I feel a lot more confident since I had the procedure done.
