This cosmetic procedure is commonly performed on the abdomen, waist, thighs, arms, back, calf, and armpit. To achieve the desired body contouring results, cosmetic surgeons may combine liposuction with other treatments.

Harmonious & Natural-Looking Results

By targeting and reducing excess fat in one area of the body, it can improve the overall body fat distribution. This results in a better-balanced body contour that looks natural and subtle.

Minimal Scarring

Scarring is a telltale sign of surgery and is a complexion blemish. However, it is inevitable. Scars are caused by incisions to insert the cannula and suction out unwanted fat. To minimise scarring, our surgeons ensure that the length of the incision(s) is as short as possible; and that incisions are always in an inconspicuous place.

Liposuction Procedure

Step 1:

Before the liposuction procedure, anesthesia is administered in the surgical area.

Step 2:

Through a few keyhole skin incisions, a liposuction cannula is inserted under the skin to break up fat.

Step 3:

Afterward, fat is suctioned out until a nice contour is obtained. The number of fat cells decreases after treatment.

Step 4:

Liposuction permanently removes fat cells, altering the shape of the body. Fat that is suctioned out can be used for fat grafting to the face for rejuvenation or to the breast for augmentation.

You may be if you are at a stable, and preferably ideal, weight, and are generally healthy. Usually, a “pinch test” will be done on you to assess the amount of bulging fat that is needed to proceed with Liposuction.

An immediate improvement may be visible, but swelling will hide your results. Within a few weeks, the majority of swelling should subside for a more visible result. Full recovery and final results will be visible between 3 to 6 months.


This depends on your body and goals. The maximum amount of fat that can be removed by liposuction safely is about 10 lbs. Do note that the higher amount of fat removed, the higher the risk of complications. Our plastic surgeon will be able to advise you during consultation.


Fat cells removed from the body through Liposuction will not grow back, and results will last for more than 10 years. However, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and a stable weight to ensure that your new look remains optimal. The overall appearance is likely to change if the body gains a significant amount of weight in the future.


Like any other medical or cosmetic surgery, Liposuction has some associated risks such as bleeding, infection, fluid collection, scar, and recurrence of bulge. You can reduce your risk of complications by choosing a seasoned surgeon and by following their instructions for preparation and recovery.


The cost of liposuction in Singapore can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of liposuction technique used, the number of areas treated, the extent of fat removal, and the experience of the surgeon. It's important to note that the cost of liposuction should not be the only factor considered when choosing a clinic or surgeon. It's crucial to do thorough research, consult with qualified professionals, and consider factors such as their experience, credentials, and patient reviews before making a decision.
