What kind of anaesthesia will I need for liposuction?
The procedure can be done under local or general anaesthesia, but can be uncomfortable, slower and more difficult to obtain good results under local anaesthesia. We would reserve this for small areas, such as the neck, or smaller pockets of fat. We use a variant anaesthesia called TIVA (Total Intravenous Anaesthesia) that is delivered by our team of top anaesthetists. Intravenous delivery enables our anaesthetic team to monitor the depth of anaesthesia more closely using a measurement of the brainwaves. The result is that you will wake up feeling much better than traditional anaesthesia and will be ready to go home the same day.
Liposuction can provide an efficient solution for the removal of unwanted fat from specific areas of the body, leaving a more defined shape. In particular, liposuction is especially effective in areas such as the buttocks, hips, thighs, abdomen, chin, upper arms, breasts and knees.
