Fat Removal Surgery Procedures

Buccal Fat Removal

This is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is designed to remove the fat pads in the lower cheeks as a remedy for what is known as chipmunk cheeks. You are given a choice of preference in anaesthesia as advised by your cosmetic surgeon and can expect the operation to last 1-1.5 hours. Full recovery is usually attainable within three weeks, but it is advised to take plenty of rest for up to two weeks after the operation.

LipoSelection: Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction - Vaser


LipoSelection only by Vaser is a revolutionary new body-shaping cosmetic surgery procedure directly targeting only the fat cells you yourself wish to be removed. With this amazing ultrasonic-assisted system, you will be experiencing the most advanced fat removal surgery technology available. It is a gentle process, the procedure carefully dissolving fat in areas of the body including the abdomen, thighs, neck and arms. This can take 1-3 hours under local anaesthetic, entirely dependent on the volume of fat to be removed and from where. Another benefit of this procedure is that recovery is generally much faster than with any other fat removal surgery.


One of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures of all that are available, Liposuction is a fat removal procedure that aims to eradicate excessive stubborn fat from areas of the body including the chin, chest, back, stomach, and thighs. Depending on the finer details of your chosen Liposuction procedure, each session takes 1-1.5 hours and it is possible you could return home the same day - although some patients either prefer or are advised to remain in the clinic for one or two days after the Liposuction has taken place.

Obesity weight loss surgery

Obesity surgery is a surgical procedure for people who have tried everything to lose weight but have not been able to lose weight or maintain weight loss. In the UK it is estimated that 20% of men and 25% of women are obese and nearly half the population are over their ideal weight.

More Fat Removal Surgery Procedures

Male Breast Reduction (Gynaecomastia)

The condition Gynaecomastia in men stems from an increase in glandular tissue, resulting in enlargement of the breast - and is a lot more common than you may imagine. Men that wish to address the problem may opt for Male Breast Reduction Surgery to remove the fatty tissue, a procedure including Liposuction that takes 1-3 hours and possibly a night or two in the cosmetic surgery clinic (depending on your natural rate of recovery).

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

This is another very popular cosmetic surgery procedure, focused on the removal of fat and excess skin from around the waist that cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise. The results of Tummy Tuck surgery are often extraordinary, but please keep your expectations realistic, as you should with any cosmetic surgical procedure. It takes just 1-2 hours to perform this procedure and you can expect to stay in the cosmetic surgery clinic for either one or two nights.

Mini Tummy Tuck

The Mini Tummy Tuck cosmetic surgery procedure is similar to the Abdominoplasty, but does not involve repositioning of the navel as in the full Tummy Tuck operation. (Please see the Tummy Tuck page for full details of the surgical procedure). It is identical, though, in that its intention is to remove excess fatty tissue and skin from the stomach and waist. This operation takes 1-2 hours and is likely to need an overnight stay to begin your After Care plan.
