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.

It was the best decision I have ever madeJen, South Africa, 11 06 21

Dr Vadia is a God Sent!!!! A brilliantly talented Cosmetic Surgeon. I went in for a tummy tuck with lipo on my tummy and back. It's been about a month and the results have exceeded my expectation big time. I have no baby pooch, no stretch marks, my stomach muscles are tighter and noticeable, my body is contoured into a beautiful hourglass shape and my incisions have almost healed completely. I'm constantly looking at myself in the mirror in disbelief that I look this good :)). Dr Vadia and his surgical team are just fantastic and so professional. I am the type of patient that becomes anxious and scared in a hospital setup but Dr and his team (Dr Vadia, Judy, the anaesthetist and Hospital staff at Rosebank Hospital) was so understanding and patient with me. The team made me feel relaxed and comfortable with their friendly and great sense of humour. It was the best surgical experience I have ever had with the bonus of having a fabulously slender body. It was the best decision I have ever made! A BIG THANK YOU to Dr Vadia and his team for making my dreams come true. God bless you abundantly. 🙏

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.
