How does the liposuction procedure work?
Pre-operative photos are taken by Dr. ANKRI.
A pre-operative assessment (blood test) will be prescribed. A pre-anaesthesia consultation is required within a minimum of 48 hours before the operation.
The procedure is usually performed under general anaesthesia but can be performed under local anaesthesia for up to one or two locations. Small incisions of a few millimetres are made at the level of natural folds. The operating time is variable depending on the number of locations to be processed and this can vary from 45 minutes to 2h30. The hospitalisation time is usually one day, except in case of major liposuction where 24 hours of hospitalisation are advised.
