During your consultation with Mr Juling Ong, he will discuss what you’re hoping to achieve and assess your suitability for liposuction. As well as your medical history, he will examine you physically and then advise you on what is possible depending on your existing shape, amount of fatty tissue and skin elasticity.
He will also discuss any potential risks and complications and you can make the decision whether to proceed with liposuction or lipo combined with other surgical procedures.
The procedure is usually quite straightforward and can be performed either under local anaesthetic with sedation or a general anaesthetic depending on the area(s) to be treated and amount of fat to be removed.
Mr Juling Ong will make tiny incisions and then insert a very fine cannula into the treatment area. The fat is broken down and loosened and then is suctioned out. Patients usually return home the same day and Mr Ong will advise you on how best to manage the recovery period, including wearing a compression garment to minimise bruising and swelling and prevent any excessive fluid build-up.
