Tummy tuck / Abdominoplasty
Thigh lift / arm lift
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that removes excess fat from one or more areas of the body. It can be used for small areas, such as the space under the chin or for larger areas, including the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips or knees.
Liposuction is also referred to as lipoplasty, suction lipectomy, or body contouring. It is a relatively safe procedure and involves a very simple process. A tiny incision is made within the target area into which a small tube is inserted. Fat cells are broken down via the movement of the tube and then sucked away.
Many people resort to liposuction when they struggle to shift stubborn fat in particular areas, despite regular exercise and a healthy diet. They may have lost weight in other parts of their body, but certain areas remain. Liposuction is a very successful way to permanently eliminate excess fat from around your body.
Often the skin becomes stretched and loose following pregnancy or rapid weight loss. Stretch marks may also be a problem. Others want to remove a “roll of fat” surrounding their abdomen. All these issues can be resolved by an abdominoplasty.
During a tummy tuck excess skin and fat is removed from the lower abdomen. The aim is to create a flatter, firmer and more contoured stomach. During the procedure the surgeon will make an incision along the bikini line and a second around the belly button. If necessary, abdominal muscles (perhaps damaged during pregnancy) may also need to be tightened and repaired. Excess skin and fat are removed then a new belly button is formed. Liposuction is often performed in conjunction with this procedure.
For those with only a small amount of excess skin, a mini-tummy tuck may be recommended. Muscle repair is not undertaken, therefore the belly button does not need to be repositioned and a much smaller incision can be made.
At Harley Street Specialist Hospital we can offer specialised VASER liposuction. This is an advanced body sculpting technique. By removing the fat around muscle groups, it creates a sculpted, athletic appearance, making muscles look more defined.
The VASERlipo® System uses minimally invasive ultrasound technology for precision body contouring. VASERlipo produces eye-catching results in just one procedure and the technology provides many benefits versus traditional liposuction treatments.
Our experienced plastic surgeons also offer a variety of surgical procedures to reduce excess skin after weight loss. This can include relatively straightforward procedures, for example on the upper arms or inner thighs, commonly referred to as thigh lifts or arm lifts.
We offer a vast selection of other cosmetic surgery procedures. So, even if you do not see the type of surgery you are interested in listed, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss.

I underwent nerve decompression surgery. Prior to the surgery I was very sceptical about it. To my amazement the operation went without a hitch and the only pain I encountered was the administration of the anaesthetic. I experienced great relief of pain straight after the operation, and could not believe the difference the operation had made. The size of the scar was also smaller than expected.Anonymous
