Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that helps remove excess fat from different areas of your body.  It is used when a healthy diet and exercise aren’t working for you and you need some extra help in removing those last pounds or shaping your physique.

Which areas of your body can you have liposuction treatment?

You can have liposuction on any area that has stubborn fat deposits, such as:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Chin
  • Upper arms
  • Neck

Liposuction procedures can also be performed with other cosmetic surgery procedures such as a facelift, breast lift, breast reduction or a tummy tuck.

Liposuction can remove fat and re-shape your
physique for a trim, toned appearance.

What are the different types of liposuction?

There are various liposuction techniques that are used by a plastic surgeon to remove unwanted fat deposits permanently.

  • Traditional Liposuction uses a thin cannula inserted through incisions to suck out excess fat cells.
  • Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasound technology for precise targeting and melting of fat cells before extracting the liquified fatty deposits.

When you meet Dr Siddiqui he will provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision about which type of liposuction is right for you.

What are the benefits of liposuction?

Liposuction is a popular procedure in the UK because of its many amazing benefits.

  • It is considered one of the safest cosmetic surgery procedures.
  • Lipo is minimally invasive meaning no long recovery times.
  • It is effective at permanently removing unwanted body fat.
  • Regain your self-confidence and boost your self-esteem.
  • Can easily be combined with other surgical procedures to remove excess skin post massive loss of weight and to improve sagging skin.

Am I a good candidate for liposuction in Manchester?

In Manchester, lipo is ideal for those people who have been actively losing weight but aren’t happy with their results. The ideal candidate:

  • Has good overall health
  • Has been actively trying to lose weight with exercise and healthy eating.
  • Any illness or condition has been ruled out that is contributing to stubborn areas of fat such as thyroid issues.
  • Has realistic expectations for liposuction surgery.
  • Be within 30% of your ideal weight.

Mr Siddiqui will conduct a physical examination, and assess your body mass index (BMI) and past medical history to ensure you are suitable for liposuction.

How does getting liposuction surgery in Manchester work?

Our friendly team at Breast & Body Clinic in Manchester are here to help you through every step of your journey to fat reduction. Here is what to expect during that journey:


At your first consultation, Mr Siddiqui will conduct an assessment and discuss your goals for your cosmetic procedure. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions or voice concerns to ensure you understand exactly what the procedure entails.

Preparing for your liposuction procedure

Mr Siddiqui and his team advise you to stop smoking and cease taking aspirin, herbal supplements or anti-inflammatory drugs before your liposuction procedure.

Liposuction Procedure

You will be given a local anaesthetic in the treatment area and a general anaesthetic. Our experienced consultant plastic surgeon then makes a small incision in the liposuction areas. Special cannulas will then be inserted into the fat layers, and the fat will be sucked out before the incisions are closed with absorbable stitches.

Usually, you won’t have to stay in the hospital overnight and you can be discharged once the general anaesthesia has sufficiently worn off.


After the procedure you can expect mild discomfort, bruising, redness and swelling in the treated area. This will diminish over several days to weeks and most patients find that any discomfort is easily controlled with simple pain relief medications.

We recommend that you stay hydrated and wear your special compression garments as often as possible. You will have a follow-up appointment to assess your healing and recovery.

Are there any risks or complications from liposuction?

Although considered relatively safe, there are potential risks and complications:

  • Change in skin sensation
  • Irregular pigmentation
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Pain

Mr Siddiqui will discuss all of these at your first appointment.

Frequently Asked questions

You can read through all our most commonly asked questions about liposuction in Manchester below.

Experienced liposuction surgeons are adept at creating small incisions that leave barely visible scars once you are fully healed. Your incision sites will initially be a little pink however, these fade over 3 to 6 months and are difficult to see.

We recommend you eat a healthy and nutritious diet after liposuction surgery. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle helps ensure a successful treatment and long-lasting noticeable results, especially for your abdomen area.

During the procedure, you are given local and general anaesthesia which means you will not feel any immediate pain or discomfort. The recovery period can be uncomfortable, especially at incision sites and the treatment area. Most patients find with simple analgesia this pain is well-controlled and easily managed.

Recovery time for liposuction will vary depending on the treatment targeted areas. Generally, your surgeon will recommend you wear a compression garment for 1 to 2 months, to return to work within a few days and to your normal activities within a few weeks.

By outlining your expectations and talking through the realistic results, possible side effects and recovery with your surgeon, you will be able to make an informed decision about whether getting liposuction is worth the money.

Liposuction for purely cosmetic reasons is not covered by the NHS. However, if it is being used to treat specific conditions like lymphoedema or lipoedema the NHS may cover part of the cost of the procedure.

How much fat can be removed with liposuction depends on which area is being treated. For example, the abdomen area can have more fat removed than with a chin or neck liposuction. The amount of fat that can be safely removed in one session is between 6 to 8 lbs.

Lipo is not a surgery for the loss of weight, rather it is for contouring and shaping your figure. That being said, surgeons can safely remove up to 8 lbs of fat in one session. If you require more fat to be removed, you will need additional procedures.

It is important that you understand lipo is not a weight-loss surgery. It can be performed near the end of your journey to help remove the last few pounds of resistant or hard-to-shed fat and for body contouring.

Liposuction can give you a flatter stomach and toned physique, however, it is not guaranteed. If you have larger amounts of fat to be removed or excessive skin in the abdominal area you can combine lipo with a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) for optimal results.

Yes, once lipo has removed the fat it is permanently gone. However, if you gain weight after your procedure the remaining fat cells will increase in size and make you look larger.

You can retain your shape after surgery by following the advice of your surgeon and embracing a healthy lifestyle. Drinking plenty of water, eating a healthy diet and participating in regular exercise help maintain the lipo results.

If your skin has lost elasticity or a significant amount of fat is removed, you may find you have skin that becomes loose or saggy. During your first appointment, Mr Siddiqui will conduct a physical examination and be able to inform you if this is likely to happen. He may recommend an additional procedure to remove excessive skin.

No liposuction is not a cure for cellulite. However, the shaping and contouring provided by lipo may decrease the appearance of existing cellulite.
