Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures in Dubai. Also referred to as liposculpture or simply “lipo”, it involves the transfer of fat from one or more areas of the body to another, to improve overall body shape and remove unsightly fat and bulges.

What to Expect During the Consultation
During your consultation, the surgeon will ask you a number of questions and perform some checks to assess your suitability for the procedure. You will be asked about any existing health conditions you or your immediate family members may have, but since the surgery is performed under a local anesthetic there should not be any significant issues. You will be given the opportunity to ask any questions, discuss your concerns or worries and the whole procedure will be explained in detail so you know what to expect on the day.
What to Expect on the Day of Your Surgery
Liposuction is a relatively short and painless procedure which requires general anesthesia , and you will not be able to feel anything during the operation. You should feel fine afterwards but you may still want to have someone with you immediately afterwards to take you home.
First, a small incision will be made and into which a cannula will be inserted. The cannula will be attached to a small vacuum device which disturbs and breaks down the fat cells, allowing them to be easily extracted from the body.
What to expect after your surgery
Following the procedure, you will feel sore and bruised, so we will provide you with pain relief. You may also be provided with antibiotics to reduce the risk of any infections. We also recommend a course of Velashape after the procedure to facilitate proper drainage and obtain a smooth, streamlined appearance. You should avoid any strenuous activities and exercise for a month at least. You will also be required to wear a garment to reduce swelling for about 4 – 6 weeks.
Most people are able to return to work after a few days and can return to normal activities a couple of weeks later.
How much does liposuction cost?
Everyone is different, so it is impossible to give a standard price for this procedure. We will take into account a number of considerations before providing you with a detailed quote, including age, health, medical issues, skin elasticity and the desired results you are looking to achieve.
