Liposuction, also called Lipoplasty, Liposculpture, Suction Lipectomy, or simply Lipo, is a type of cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that breaks up and “sucks” fat from specific targeted parts of the body. It is most commonly used on the abdomen, waist line, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves and back. This results in a reduced prominence or flabbiness on the targeted part of the body. Our plastic surgeons at CASS (Center for Advanced Specialty Surgery} have performed numerous liposuction procedures in the USA and have now introduced the surgery in our Lagos hospital.
One of the most common of all cosmetic procedures, abdominal liposuction is a technique for contouring the body by permanently removing fat deposits from the abdomen and waistline. There is an inherited tendency in some people to accumulate fat around the abdomen. In these cases the extra tissue can prove difficult to get rid of even with diet and exercise. Liposuction can remove this fat and give the body a curvier contour. Liposuction around the abdomen can be combined with same procedures on the lower back, buttocks and thighs. Our plastic surgeons at CASS can create a better overall curved shape by removing the appropriate amount of fat from various parts of the body and shaping the body at the same time.
Liposuction at CASS utilizes the latest techniques for liposuction. We are equipped for tumescence, power assisted liposuction (PAL), laser liposuction (SMARTLIPO), manual liposuction as well as fat processing and fat transfer.
The technique can also be done around the arms, chest, neck and other areas to also give the sought after shape for our patients.
In addition to the techniques mentioned above, our plastic surgeons at CASS have mastered a special technique known as a Brazilian butt lift. In this procedure the excess fat is reinserted into the buttocks giving the buttocks more volume and shape while narrowing the waistline and lower back at the same time. This gives a net overall smaller waist and rounder buttocks.
As people age, certain areas of the body can accumulate fat that is difficult to lose, in spite of a healthy diet and vigorous exercise. The neck is one such area. Fatty deposits in the neck can detract from the appearance of the entire body. Liposuction can give this area a new streamlined contour, enhancing the effect of facial features and improving the profile. Liposuction in this area produces consistently good results, and has a particularly high satisfaction rate. Removing the excess fat from under the chin gives the face a more youthful appearane.
Above are some of the types of liposuction, and we at CASS (Centre For Advanced Specialty Surgery) offer all these and more, with well trained and specialized doctors, bringing the American standard of surgery all the way down to Lagos, Abuja and Owerri, Nigeria.
Women in Lagos and elsewhere in Nigeria are encouraged to visit CASS for a consultation and advice if they have an interest in liposuction. Patients will be evaluated and given detailed surgical plans to achieve the desired results.
Surgeries are Done by our US trained specialists at our hospital in Lagos. Our surgeons have performed numerous successful liposuction surgeries in the USA and now in Lagos since we expanded to a hospital in July 2016. All liposuctions, Brazilian butt lifts and other plastic surgeries and even consultations are done with the strictest adherence to confidentiality.
