DO AWAY WITH STUBBORN FAT POCKETS WITH
A LIPOSUCTION IN LONDON
Do you have pockets of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise? If you are keen to get rid of such stubborn fat pockets and have more contoured body proportions, you might consider getting a liposuction.
Liposuction, also called suction-assisted lipectomy, is a surgical procedure performed by using a hollow metal surgical instrument known as a cannula that is inserted through small skin incisions and is passed back and forth through the areas of fatty deposits. The cannula is attached to a vacuum source, which provides the suction needed to remove the fatty tissue. The term “liposuction” itself means “suctioning of fat”.
At our state-of-the-art liposuction clinic in London, our experienced liposuction surgeons use the latest equipment and techniques to suction out excess fat and provide a more contoured appearance.

Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure worldwide for men and women. Focused on removing stubborn pockets of fat in specific areas by suctioning them, liposuction can provide you with a more contoured body appearance in your problem areas. The goal of liposuction of any area is an aesthetically pleasing and natural looking result.
It is worth noting that liposuction is not a weight loss surgery, rather, it is a body contouring surgery. People who are overweight should consider other weight loss options before undergoing a liposuction.
Liposuction is done either under local, IV sedation, or general anesthesia. During the surgery, your doctor will mark your body and make incisions on the part/s from where fat is to be extracted. The procedure starts with injection of anesthesia fluid known as Tumescent into the desired liposucion area. The fat is than broken down with the help of either mechanical or energy devices that liquify the fat and allow the fat to be extracted through using fine syringes known as cannula (plural: cannulae) attached to a low-power suction. The liposuction surgeon will use gentle back-and-forth movements to suction the desired amount of fat and reshape the body parts being treated. The process is similar to a vacuum cleaner suctioning dirt. Once the desired volume of fat is extracted, the surgeon will close the incisions. The skin then moulds itself to your new contours.
Once done, ideally, there should be no significant lumpiness or irregularity of shape.
As an additional procedure, you may opt to transfer the removed fat to an alternate body part that you wish to augment, such as breast or buttocks. This is known as fat grafting or fat transfer.
The ideal candidate should be a healthy person who has achieved a healthy weight. He or she should not have fluctuating weight or any medical condition that could interfere with the healing of the wound.
The ideal candidate is one who is in interested in eliminating select stubborn pockets of fat and desires a sleeker, more contoured appearance in those body areas.
Liposuction is not meant for people with poor skin elasticity. It does not also correct cellulite issues, stretch marks, or excess/ loose skin.
Prior to ensuring your candidature for the Liposuction, your liposuction surgeon will review your medical history and past and present health condition. You will have to discuss the medication you are on, including any herbal supplements.
As a possible Liposuction candidate, you must have realistic expectations about your resultant appearance after the procedure. You must stop smoking prior to the surgery and after the surgery, as tobacco can slow down the blood flow to the skin and thereby slow down the healing process.
Your liposution surgeon will check your previous medical history prior to recommending the procedure. The surgery will show desirable results only on people who are generally healthy and do not have any previous history of having cardiac issues, pulmonary emboli, excessive bleeding, seizures, immunodeficiency disorders, or deep vein thrombosis. People with such conditions are discouraged from undergoing this procedure due to a higher risk of surgical complications.
People who are on certain anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant drugs are also discouraged from undergoing an arm lift surgery. Further, people with poor skin elasticity are also less suitable candidates for the procedure.
Liposuction is possible on most body parts. You can choose to do liposuction for 1 or more areas in a single surgery.
Liposuction is usually done for the following body parts:
– Abdomen – Arms (upper) – Back – Bra-roll – Breast – Buttocks – Chest (for men – gynecomastia surgery) – Chin – Face – Flanks/ Love Handles – Hips – Legs – Thighs/ Calves – Neck – Stomach/ Tummy – Waist
Over time, liposuction techniques have evolved. Starting with the traditional liposuction, which is still popular, to newer techniques, there are various options now available. Your liposuction should choose the most effective technique for your specific case. The various liposuction types/ techniques are:
Standard Liposuction or Suction-Assisted Liposuction (SAL) – This is the most traditional liposuction technique that suctions fat using a cannula attached to a vacuum source.
Tumescent Liposuction – This common technique involves injecting a saline-solution mixed with anesthetics and fat dissolvers into the treatment area. This solution liquifies the fat, while also make the area numb, allowing for the fat to be suctioned easily, with lesser pain and blood loss.
Power-assisted Liposuction (PAL) – This is a variation of the traditional liposuction, involving the addition of a power tool to speed up the process of fat removal by quickening the movement of the cannula.
Laser-assisted Liposuction (LAL) – This newer technique, also commonly referred to as Smartlipo or Laser lipo, involves the use of laser to melt the fat prior to suction. This technique is generally used for smaller areas where a small volume of fat is to be extracted, such as, arms, chin, or neck.
Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction (UAL) – This new technique works similar to laser liposuction, except that instead of laser, ultrasound energy is used to liquify the fat. It is the preferred technique of skilled surgeons, and is very effective for higher volume liposuction and liposuction of fat-dense areas.
VASER Liposuction – This new technique is a variation of UAL and uses ultrasound energy to melt the fat. An ultrasonic probe with multiple grooves is used in VASER Liposuction, which helps to disperse the energy evenly while liquifying the fat. It has the same advantage as UAL with regards to high volume liposuction and liposuction of areas with dense fat deposits. It is also most effective for advanced body contouring, including 4D hi definition liposuction.
It is the preferred technique for complex body contouring by skilled surgeons, who have trained with the technology.
As mentioned earlier, our founder Dr. Hasan Ali is referred to as the “VASER king” for being the pioneer of VASER liposuction in the UAE and his phenomenal expertise with the technology.

At Hasan Surgery, safety is always our first priority. So we prefer not to remove more than 5-6% of the body weight as fat.
Therefore, if a patient weighs 80 Kgs, as a standard, about 4 liters of fat is the maximum fat taken out in one session. However, in rare situations, there may be a need for mega liposuction to relieve severe symptoms resulting from huge fat deposits.
The cost of Liposuction in London depends on the following factors:
- Skill and experience of the plastic surgeon
- Standard of the clinic/ hospital where the surgery will be performed
- The treatment area/s – which ones and how many
- Amount of fat to be extracted
- Whether the procedure is combined with other body contouring surgeries
It is advised to get an initial consultation from a specialist plastic surgeon to know the cost applicable to your case and your eligibility for the procedure.
We mostly perform Liposuction under local anesthesia or IV sedation at our accredited clinic in London.
Most people are able to go back to work within 2-3 days.
Liposuction is a very safe procedure in the hands of a skilled liposuction surgeon, but following complications may be seen:
Infection Seroma formation Temporary numbness Asymmetry Contour irregularities
Most patients experience pain and discomfort after the surgery when anesthesia effects diminish. You will start to feel comfortable after 2-3 days.
Immediately after the Liposuction surgery, the incisions will be covered in bandages. These loosely wrapped bandages will help minimize the swelling. Sometimes, a small tube will be placed in the treated areas to drain away from the excess blood and lymph fluid. After removing the bandages and the tube, your liposuction surgeon will recommend you wear a compression garment for a few weeks to aid the healing process and keep the swelling down. It is normal to feel some loss of sensation in the treated areas after the liposuction. This temporary numbness will go away once the part is completely healed.
Post-surgery, there will be an immediate visible improvement in the shape and appearance of your treated area, though there will be bruising and swelling that may last for 2-4 weeks. The final results from your liposuction surgery will be visible between 2-4 months after the procedure, though in some cases, it may take even longer.
The fat removed after a liposuction is permanently gone from your body. For best results, strictly follow the care instructions of your plastic surgeon, prior to, and in the aftermath of the surgery. For lasting results, maintain a stable and healthy weight.
Double Chin and Neck Liposuction with VASER
Anyone who is looking for a way to contour their neck, chin, and jowl can undergo VASER Liposuction for correcting it. Double chin removal and neck liposuction is recommended for those who have a heavy chin and cheeks, or those who have loose neck skin due to obesity.
Back/Bra Roll Liposuction with VASER
Stubborn fat accumulated in back folds can be removed with VASER Liposuction. It can also help in skin tightening. However, in weight loss patient it may require additional skin excision. Individual consultation is required with the plastic surgeon to decide which procedure is ideal.
Arm Liposuction with VASER
Arm liposuction significantly improves arm appearance along with skin tightening. Most of our patients report reduced mid-arm circumference of 5-12 cm within 2 months. 90% of our patients report a high satisfaction with arm liposuction.
Flanks and Abdomen Liposuction with VASER
VASER contouring of abdomen, flanks, and waist area refers to the removal of resistant fat under the skin using specialized instrumentation. VASER liposuction emulsifies fat before being squeezed out to contour the abdomen, flank, and waist area of both male and female.
Thighs & Legs Liposuction with VASER
Thighs and legs liposuction is done to achieve aesthetically pleasing results by removing excess fat deposits in proportion to the overall body weight.
