 DxD Session held on 27 Jul 2018.

Dr Christopher Chui is a fully trained, certified and accredited plastic surgeon and is a registered medical practitioner in Singapore and Australia.

Dr Christopher answered questions from readers on:

  • Best candidates for liposuction
  • Types of liposuction
  • Recovery after liposuction

What are the types of liposuction available in Singapore?

Liposuction is a procedure that has many different variables that surgeons can choose from. There are differences in the tools used as well as differences in technique.

For the tools used, the suction can be just from a syringe or it can be from a suction machine. A machine can definitely provide more suction than a syringe. The cannulas come in a variety of shapes and sizes as well as specialised tips.

How effective are non-surgical liposuction procedures in Singapore?

Firstly, there is no such thing as non-surgical liposuction. Liposuction involves making a small incision in the skin and sucking out fat though a metal straw called a cannula.

Non-surgical fat reduction technologies cause your fat cells to die, they are then reabsorbed by your body. Regardless of the method used, their effectiveness is in the range of 20% reduction.

What is the recovery process and downtime like after liposuction in Singapore?

After liposuction, the treated areas will be bruised and swollen. They will be tender to touch and there will be some pain on movement. The pain feels like a strenuous workout and is usually managed with painkillers.

If the pain is very severe, it’s possible a haematoma or infection may have developed and you should seek a consultation with your surgeon.

How safe is liposuction in Singapore?

In Singapore, liposuction is a special service that is regulated by the Ministry of Health. This was done to improve the safety of the procedure.

This means that patients cannot be rushed into the surgery (they have to wait 1 week between consultation and surgery), and only doctors with the required training are accredited to do it. The procedure must be carried out in an approved facility with adequate emergency facilities.

How much does liposuction cost in Singapore, and what affects the cost?

It’s hard to give you the cost of liposuction in Singapore because different surgeons use different techniques and charge differently.

Most surgeons will charge you an all-in fee that covers surgeon fee, anaesthetic fee and OT fee. But I don’t believe this is best for the patient because if the operation is shorter than normal the patient should pay less.

How is liposuction performed in Singapore, and must it be under general anaesthesia?

The basic liposuction operation in Singapore involves making a small incision less than 1cm long in the skin then inserting a metal ‘straw’ called a cannula into the fat and sucking the fat out. The fat is not liquid, so the cannula needs to be moved in and out to loosen it so it can be removed.

A good knowledge of anatomy is essential to avoid putting the cannula in the wrong place.

Who are the best candidates for liposuction?

Liposuction is an invasive cosmetic procedure performed under general anaesthesia. It is not a weight loss tool and has no proven medical benefits.

Therefore, suitable patients must be able to tolerate general anaesthesia safely. They shouldn’t have heart problems, their blood pressure must be under control and they should be generally well.
