Why Liposuction?

Liposuction (also called lipo, liposculpture, lipoplasty etc.,) is a popular procedure preferred in many countries including Singapore as the procedure is simple, fast and less side effects. Most importantly, this surgery allows us to shape up the body to a perfect/preferred shape.

One should note that there are various types of liposuction procedures, and they all are specific result oriented. Almost every procedure also has side effects, which is taken care of by the doctors.

In Singapore, most common procedure performed is Vaser or Ultrasound Assisted liposuction. Latest technologies like Vaser are preferred because of their historical evidence of safety and lesser side effects. As an example of a new generation liposuction technique, Vaser utilizes ultrasound to selectively liquefy fats without damaging surrounding nerves and vessels, producing less collateral damage than traditional liposuction techniques.

Liposuction in Singapore is no more a lengthy procedure that forces you to stay in the hospital for many days. It has gradually evolved from an inpatient procedure to being done in the ambulatory / One day Surgery setting. As a result of this reduced time, Liposuction is become most popular and successful ways of cosmo surgeries in Singapore and other countries.

High Definition Sculpting

In addition to traditional liposuction which usually aims to reduce fat bulk, there are new applications to liposuction, such as Vaser Hi-Def sculpting. VASER Liposelection®, also known as Assisted Hi Def LipoSculpture or VASER Hi Definition™, is a complex body shaping skill. The procedure requires a skillful surgeon, who needs to consider not only the patient’s current body shape, but also the patient’s muscle structures so as to be able to sculpture the both the superficial and deep fats to create a toned silhouette.

To achieve good results, trained surgeons are usually very selective on who are suitable candidates, because to get good results, the patient should possess good muscles and skin tone.

There are newer techniques on the horizon such as water jet assisted liposuction, which hold promise. However, patients should always be cautious of latest techniques which do not yet have extensive track records and are not completely understood by the medical profession, or are still under study having been in the market for relatively short times.

    Hi Farhana,

    We are an independent site, aiming to share our experience with our readers, thus, we do not have a comprehensive list of price and the financing plans provided by clinics in Singapore.

    Full recovery can take anything from 6 – 18 months, but many of our readers (including ourselves) are have no problems resuming work in less than 1 week. :)

    Hi Wai and Jasmine,

    We are an independent site, aiming to share our experience with our readers, thus, we do not have a comprehensive list of price and the financing plans provided by clinics in Singapore.

    Wai: Common complications are bruising and swelling, as well as scaring.
    Jasmine and Wai: Price differs greatly. Be sure to ask if the surgery is performed in approved surgery theatre or the doctor’s office. Many clinics do not provide the cost of post-operative compression garments which is very important as part of the package, because it is very expensive. Do ask for this to be included in the quote.
