The inability to get rid of fat from stubborn areas of the body can be quite frustrating. Your ideal body shape may be difficult to achieve with healthy behavioural choices alone. Where diet and exercise are unsuccessful in toning your body, liposuction (Lipo) can directly target trouble areas and give you a more slender and attractive body shape. Mr Gwanmesia designs every liposuction procedure to meet the needs of the patient, producing custom-tailored results that reveal your most flattering and attractive figure.
Enhancing Your Body Shape
The Liposuction (Lipo) Procedure
Traditional Tumescent Liposuction (Lipo)
- Performed on an outpatient basis
- Requires general anaesthesia
- Minor incisions are made in the target area(s)
- A cannula (a thin, hollow tube) is inserted through the incisions
- Stored fat cells are suctioned out through the cannula
- Fat is permanently eliminated from the body
Areas of Treatment
- Multiple areas can be treated in a single liposuction procedure:
- Upper arms
- Under the chin
- Overall good health
- Good skin elasticity
- Realistic expectations about the results
- Lack of success with body contouring through diet and exercise
- Near ideal body weight with stubborn fat deposits
- Non-smoking or willing to quit for a period of time before and after the procedure
After liposuction, you should get plenty of rest and should be able to resume work within a few days to one week. Soreness, swelling, and bruising will subside within a few weeks after your procedure, and you should limit your physical activities during this time. Compression garments should be worn for at least six weeks to help reduce swelling and enhance your results.
Liposuction requires only minor incisions to allow the cannula to access the fatty tissue. Mr Gwanmesia places all incisions in inconspicuous locations so that scarring will be minimal. Most patients have little to no scarring after liposuction. However, the extent of scarring will vary depending on your body’s natural healing process. Any visible scarring is likely to fade over time.
Anaesthesia is used to ensure a painless procedure during liposuction. Swelling may cause some soreness or discomfort during recovery. Oral pain medication can be used for your comfort.

I met him on the day and he was calm which made me feel better as I was getting nervous by then. I was in surgery for 3 1/2 hours which was a bit longer than I expected but was down to Dr Gwanmesia wanting the results we talked about and also a lot of scar tissue from the previous surgery and breaks. It has been 6 months since surgery and I could not be happier with the results and how it now looks. Couldn’t speak highly enough on how Dr Gwanmesia and just wish I would have found it first time round!
