What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove fat cells. This procedure is very effective for removing fat from the inner and outer thighs, abdomen, hips, knee, and the area beneath the chin. The surgeon will remove the fat using fine cannulas inserted through 5mm incisions in the skin of the problem area.
A skilled surgeon like Elena can make significant improvements to the shape of your body with liposuction. Clients who have had their hip and thigh areas treated can enjoy wearing tight jeans and other figure-hugging clothes that they would previously avoid.
Why choose Elena Prousskaia for Liposuction in London?
Elena Prousskaia has worked as a plastic surgeon for more than two decades. She had a successful career as a Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in the NHS for many years. Elena is well-known for prioritising the safety and happiness of her patients and her surgical expertise. The demand for her services has led her to establish several private clinics across the UK, including her London clinic.
Elena does not perform large volume fat removal during liposuction procedures as this can be bad for the patients’ health. She takes a more creative approach: using liposuction sparingly to recontour specific areas where stubborn fat cannot be removed by healthy lifestyle choices. For example, Elena uses liposuction to make a dramatic difference to the hip and thigh area in women who have an inherited predisposition to store excess fat in these areas.
What is the downtime after fat reduction surgery?
Liposuction is a significant surgical intervention, and you will need to rest afterwards so that your body can recover. While small areas can be treated under local anaesthetic, a general anaesthetic is often used, which means you may need to stay in hospital overnight.
You will have recovered from surgery after between two and six weeks, and the final result of your liposuction will be apparent after six months. Aftercare is essential for the best results, and Elena will talk through all the precautions and care you need to take post-surgery with you. The clinic will closely monitor your progress during follow-up consultations during the first year after surgery.
Liposuction carries the same risks as all surgical procedures, such as bleeding, infection, and a bad reaction to anaesthesia. Of course, the risk of these problems is minimised by choosing an excellent surgeon, but Elena will discuss all the potential issues before you decide to go ahead.
