Abdomen Liposuction


The abdomen is renowned for being a difficult area to remove loose skin on abdomen or stubborn areas of unwanted fat.  Many patients often try various diets and procedure such as abdominoplasty, and spend hours doing exercise, but are still unable to shift these pockets of fat.  Not only does this have a demoralising effect on continuing with the weight loss activities, but it can upset the harmony of the individual's physique. 

What is Abdominal Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical technique that uses negative pressure and a series of tubes to remove unwanted fat. The Liposuction procedure targets areas of fat in the lower abdomen, the upper abdomen, and the flanks.

Abdomen liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves the removal of unwanted fat from the abdominal region. The procedure is carried out by making small incisions in the skin through which a thin tube or cannula is inserted. The cannula is then used to suction out the fat from the targeted area. Abdomen liposuction is an effective way to remove stubborn fat that cannot be eliminated through diet or exercise.

It is a procedure that is carried out under general anesthetic and less commonly local anesthetic to remove loose skin on abdomen. Most cases are day procedures, so patients can go home the same day.  The incisions are typically 10-15mm and hidden discretely in the lower back and groin. Depending on the volume of fat removed, the procedure can last anywhere between 1-4 hours. 

The maximum volume of liposuction permitted is 5 litres. This is due to biochemical changes in the fluid occurring for volumes greater than this.

Liposuction in Dubai is performed in association with a number of energy devices. Dr. Faisal will either use VASER®️ and Microaire ®️ to ensure that the results are smooth and recovery quick

The incisions will be closed with dissolvable sutures and glue

Who Should Undergo this Procedure?

Abdomen liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that is best suited for individuals who are at or near their ideal body weight but are struggling with stubborn pockets of fat in the abdominal area that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and is not suitable for individuals who are significantly overweight or obese.

Ideal candidates for abdomen liposuction are:

1. Adults who are in good overall health

2. Individuals who have realistic expectations for the results of the procedure

3. Non-smokers or those who are willing to quit smoking prior to the procedure and during the recovery period

4. Individuals with good skin elasticity and muscle tone

5. Individuals who have excess fat in the abdominal area that has not responded to diet and exercise

The abdomen liposuction is not suitable for individuals who have loose or sagging skin in the abdominal area. In these cases, a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty may be a more appropriate procedure.

It is also important to have a consultation with Dr. Faisal an experienced plastic surgeon to discuss your individual needs, goals, and medical history. The surgeon will be able to evaluate your candidacy for the procedure and help you determine if abdomen liposuction is the best option for you.

The ideal candidate for abdominal liposuction is a motivated individual who has a balanced diet and active lifestyle. The BMI should be below 30 and the patient involved in some form of exercise.  As a general rule of thumb, the closer the patient is to their ideal size and  shape, the higher the likelihood of achieving the goals

How to Prepare for the Surgical Procedure?

It is important to adequately prepare before undergoing the procedure to ensure everything goes smoothly and you heal quickly: 

1. The most obvious step is doing everything the doctor tells you. You’ll probably need to take some tests to ensure you’re healthy enough for the Liposuction procedure and other tests to help the doctor learn how to effectively go about removing your fat. Because everyone stores fat differently, these tests are necessary.

2. Keep away from extreme temperatures during the week leading up to the operation. Getting the flu or another common sickness will not bode well. Especially if you start coughing all the time. That’s why it is important to keep yourself healthy and immediately contact the doctor if you contract anything.

How Can I Go About Post Operation Care?

Recovery from abdomen liposuction typically takes several weeks. During this time, individuals will need to take special care to ensure proper healing and minimize the risk of complications.

Some of the steps involved in the recovery process include:

1.Rest and Recovery: Following the procedure, individuals should rest and avoid strenuous activity for several days. They may also experience some discomfort and swelling, which can be managed with pain medication and ice packs.

2.Compression Garment: The compression garment should be worn at all times, except when showering, for the first few weeks following the procedure. This helps to reduce swelling and support the healing process.

3.Follow-up Appointments: Individuals will need to attend follow-up appointments with their surgeon to monitor their progress and ensure proper healing.

4.Diet and Exercise : To maintain the results of abdomen liposuction, individuals should maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly. This can also help to prevent the development of new fat deposits in the treated area.

5.Scarring: Scarring from abdomen liposuction is typically minimal and will fade over time. However, individuals should avoid exposing the scars to direct sunlight until they have fully healed.

Abdomen liposuction is a safe and effective way to remove excess fat from the abdominal area and achieve a more toned and shapely appearance. While there are risks and potential complications associated with the procedure, these can be minimized through proper preparation and post-operative care.

I had breast augmentation surgery with Dr Faisal and I honestly couldn’t recommend him enough. The whole process from consultation to aftercare appointments was professional, caring and to the highest standard. He listened to what I wanted and the results are incredible. I would have any future treatments done by Dr Faisal and would send anyone I know to him also.

Been looking for doctors over years now both in Dubai and India. Never felt fully comfortable with anyone to go forward with the procedure, then I came across Dr. Faizal, found him while I was doing research online and read a lot of positive reviews. Went down for a consultation, a really gem of a person. Immediately felt comfortable, he explained me everything in detail, assured me and got exactly what I wanted and the price was reasonable as well. The hospital the surgery was held at had the best services and staff as well. They took care of everything and made me feel safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. Came back home the same day, I'm at 6 weeks post op now, and the healing is wonderful and now I feel much more confident, all thanks to him. If anyone is looking for a breast augmentation, I would definitely suggest to go for a consultation with him and decide for themselves.
good choice

Having done a lot of research and looked around Dubai for the best possible option for us, we found Dr Faisal, and I'm so glad we did! The non judgemental and honest advice throughout as well as his pre and post op care is incredible and has been there every step of the way for me. Thank you so much Dr Faisal for everything :).

I came to Dr.Faisal not sure of anything. I wasn’t happy with my body as I had a lot of excess skin due to massive weight loss. I was scared of the idea of a surgery, so came in hoping for an alternative. Here I am months - 3 months post my surgery, wearing a pair of jeans that would have never fit me before. I had a lower body lift surgery done, and I must say my results are amazing. My body has changed so much, and I am very very happy with the way I look now. Dr.Faisal is a great doctor. He will make sure you are aware of everything before and after the procedure and is always there for his patients. My favorite trait about him is that he is always available. Being a patient who has low pain tolerance, and someone who worries a lot, I would always call him. I would have a lot to ask before and after the surgery- and he was always there. It didn’t matter what day or time it was, he made sure to help with every little thing and I am very grateful for him. Thank you doctor, I can now sit without having layers of my stomach falling down, I can now wear my clothes much more confidently and can finally say I love my body.

I can’t recommend Dr Faisal enough, he gets me the results I want every time. He answers all of my questions in depth and explains how and why he does things and makes me feel comfortable. I wouldn’t go to anyone else!

Two words to describe my experience with Dr. Faisal: life changing. I had a breast reduction and it has changed my life! The procedure itself was painful for the first 2 hours and much to my surprise I was ready to go home only 4 hours after waking up and ready to return to work only 3 days later. My back, neck and shoulders feel great, my posture is better and I couldn't be happier! I recommend Dr. Faisal and the surgery 100%, my only regret is not finding him 10 years sooner! Thank you Doc!!

He shows compassion throughout the process which makes you feel like you are in good hands. Overall Dr Faisal exceeded my expectations and I am so pleased with my results!
