Liposuction

I actually advise my patients against liposuction for the purpose of weight loss. I believe dietary and lifestyle modifications will give you more joy in the long term. Addressing this usually takes up a lot of time in the consultation but I find it worth the while. Large vo...

There has been a paradigm shift in the treatment of unwanted fat especially over the last few years. Whereas liposuction used to be the preferred option many patients are now opting for non surgical fat reduction procedures. This shift has been attributed to the pain and complications associate...

This is a very common question and at times have confused many patients thinking they are the same. However they are very different! Liposuction in a nutshell is a procedure where the fat is "sucked out " of the area you are treating by mechanical removal of the fat tissue ie....

I'm sorry to hear that your result is unsatisfactory. At 9 months, we can assume that the result is fairly stable and will not improve significantly without action. From what you describe, the optimal solution is to undergo a 2nd procedure involving VASER liposelection to reduce/smoothen the...

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 bl...

Thank you for your question. I walk my patients through this pre-operatively before every liposuction so I will be happy to share this with you too. You can also check out a patient’s journey after liposuction on DxD . Liposuction is a technique that involves using a hollo...

good question! Liposuction in Singapore is safe. The Ministry of Health has set many regulations to ensure patients' safety. Local patients who are planning to go for liposuction are usually given 7 days “cooling off” period to consider their decision. This per...

As a ballpark figure, you can expect to pay about $15,000 - $25,000 for liposuction in Singapore in total. Plastic surgeons in Singapore usually perform liposuction on a minimum of 5 body parts. Liposuction costs about $1,500 - $2,800 for each body part area. It’...

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...

To answer your question, it will depend on the context that you are referring to. If you are hoping to achieve reduction of large amount of weight lost or major reduction of fat, non-surgical fat reduction is the wrong option. The correct way to reduce large amount of fat is d...
