Liposuction Options at Elanic

Located in the heart of Glasgow, Elanic is one of Scotland’s largest providers of liposuction and, unlike the majority of clinics and hospitals, proudly offers three different types of liposuction.

During your consultation, we’ll get to know your specific goals and aesthetic concerns and will guide you to one of our three liposuction choices:

  • Traditional liposuction
  • SmartLipo Triplex Laser Liposuction

A Speedy Procedure

Liposuction can be carried out under local anaesthetic with sedation given by one of our experienced consultant anaesthetists and can take as little as a couple of hours. This means you can have your procedure performed in one of our clinics and be home recovering on the very same day.

Which Areas Can Be Treated with Liposuction?

Fat deposits can be removed using liposuction from almost anywhere on the body. Commonly treated areas include:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Knees
  • Neck
  • Upper Arms
  • Male Breasts (gynaecomastia)

Comprehensive Enhancement

Liposuction can also be combined with other cosmetic procedures to enhance your new look.

In many cases, liposuction may be the only way to rid yourself of troublesome parts of your body. We recommend that you be at or near your target weight before considering this treatment. The ideal liposuction candidate can combine this procedure with a number of other procedures for comprehensive, whole-body enhancement.

Which Liposuction Treatment is Best for Me?

For the vast majority of clients interested in liposuction, we recommend combining a fat-melting liposuction technique like SmartLipo with the gentle, power-assisted liposuction offered by Microaire. We believe this offers the best results in terms of fat removal while also being more comfortable for the patient.

Each technique has its own advantages, and we’ll recommend a technique according to the specifics of your treatment area, the amount of fat removal and skin shrinkage required, and any other procedures that may be combined with your liposuction. We’ll also talk you through the details of your procedure, like its duration, incision placement, and so forth.

Smart Liposuction

Smart Lipo uses a laser to heat and destroy fat cells prior to liposuction, contracting your skin in the process for an improved final result. Unlike previous versions of Smart Lipo, the Triplex system uses a new wavelength of laser that is better suited to the melting of fat and therefore allows for large volumes of fat to be removed safely whilst maintaining skin contraction.

Recovery from Liposuction

After your operation, you will be given adequate pain relief to keep you comfortable, and you will have access to medical advice 24/7. You’ll need to wear a compression garment on the treatment area for up to six weeks to aid recovery and encourage your ideal results. As with all surgical procedures, you’ll experience post-surgical swelling and bruising.

As your body heals over the coming weeks, you’ll see your results taking shape. This can take up to six months, as your healing continues and your shape improves. It is essential to be aware of the fact that it is important to maintain a stable body weight in order to continue enjoying your liposuction results in the long term.

Significant weight gain can work against the effects of this procedure. We recommend that you take one week away from work, depending on your industry and ability to work from home. After one week, you can resume your normal activities, but you must wait six weeks before resuming any kind of exercise.

3D Simulation by Vectra

Vectra offers a 3D camera system that allows you to visualise your results before undergoing your liposuction procedure. Using simulation software, we can give you an impression of what your results will look like, and by photographing you again after the treatment, we can also show you more accurately how much volume you have lost.

The Vectra system at Elanic is one of the first in the UK and enables us to maintain our commitment to bringing Glasgow the best technology from around the world. Elanic has earned a reputation by being one of Glasgow's busiest clinics, and through its commitment to a high level of care, driven by empathy and understanding. When you visit Elanic, you're visiting the very best.
