Liposuction, or lipoplasty and liposculpture, are the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedure. It is ideally suited to eliminate bulges of fat from different areas of the body with minimal scarring and quick recovery times. When done properly it is easily tolerated and very safe. Although the amount of weight loss is not remarkable, because the fat is taken from targeted areas, the changes in body contour are often dramatic.
The body has certain places where it prefers to store 'slow burning' fat. This varies from individual to individual. These bulges of slow burning fat give the figure its particular shape, whether it be an 'hourglass' or a 'pear' figure. Unfortunately, if you don’t like these bulges, they can be hard to get rid of as they are 'slow burning' fat. Even with diet and exercise, you will probably lose weight in other areas before you lose those bulges. Liposuction does not affect muscle tone or skin tone. A person with hanging skin is probably a better candidate for dermatolipectomy or tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).
Many women find that certain parts or their body, such as their thighs, hips, or abdomen are out of proportion with the rest of their body, for those patients liposuction provides a very suitable solution. Age is not the most predominant factor in patient selection for this procedure, but skin quality in general is very important: for patients with extensive cellulite, abundant stretch marks or a reduced elasticity of the skin liposuction may not be suitablable and other procedures must be considered.
Dr Kaye, Director and Head Surgeon of Ocean Clinic Marbella, has years of experience in all techniques, including Laser, Ultrasound and Waterjet assisted procedures, but mostly prefers to use the Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture, also called 'Tickle Lipo' with the Lipomatic 4 aspirator. This advanced machine uses very fine (2-3 mm) vibrating cannulas which cause less trauma and bruising and achieve much smoother tissue contours. Downtime and postoperative Pain are reduced significantly while the aesthetic results a far superior to other techniques.
Water jet assisted liposuction is a method of liposuction being used by cosmetic surgeons. Water-assisted liposuction (WAL) is a technique for body contouring and fat harvesting.
The basic principle of water jet assisted Liposuction is guided high pressure water jet inside the liposuction cannula to help loosen fat cells from connective tissue and then gently removes them. Less invasive. Less painful. Better aesthetic outcomes.

Almost any area of your body can be contoured with liposuction – thighs, hips, buttocks, lower legs, back, abdomen, chest, upper arms, neck, jaw line and cheeks - creating a slimmer, shapelier appearance. The procedures may vary for specific body areas, but the general processes are similar. So, watch and learn how liposuction is performed on the outer thighs.
Up to a certain point. When we perform Liposuction we take out most-but not all-of the fat cells in that area, but if you gain weight afterwards the remaining fat cells can fill-up again.
During one liposuction procedure 4-5 ltrs. of fat can be removed, patients who require larger amounts or many different zones should split the procedures.
This generally depends on your skin quality, age and lifestyle. Younger skin usually retracts very well, older skin less and might need additional procedures like thigh lift or Tummy tuck.
Normal recovery takes 2-3 weeks, during which time a support garment must be worn 24/7 to ensure a smooth result and a good retraction of skin.
Liposuction can be performed on almost any area that carries fat.
Do you have stubborn areas of fat that won’t go away no matter what you do? Do you feel your figure is spoiled by a particular problem area? Liposuction might be the solution you’re looking for.
