Am I the ideal patient for PAL High Definition Liposuction and Body Sculpting?
You should have a realistic goal of what you would like to achieve and understand the limitations of any of the options available for Body Sculpting. Your general medical health is an important factor in your desire to achieve an improved shape. You will be advised to avoid smoking before and after your surgery. PAL High Definition Liposuction and Body Sculpting is not recommended in patients with a BMI >30 or who have gained or are continuing to gain significant weight in the 6 months before their surgery.
Does PAL High Definition Liposuction and Body Sculpting require a general anaesthetic or hospitalisation?
High Definition Liposuction can be carried out under local anaesthetic as an out-patient procedure in some patients who do not require extensive treatment. However, for a full PAL High Definition Liposuction and Body Sculpting a general anaesthetic, with or without a one-night stay in hospital, depending on your overall health and circumstances, will be required.
How long is the procedure?
PAL High Definition Liposuction and Body Sculpting can take from as little as 2 hours for limited areas to 4 or 5 hours for full Body Sculpting and fat grafting.
What are the risks of PAL High Definition Liposuction and Body Sculpting?
PAL High Definition Power Assisted Liposuction and Body Sculpting is the safest technique available to achieve a sculptured, defined body shape. Like any surgical procedure there are risks of bleeding, infection, seroma (fluid collections), changes in skin sensation, irregularity, poor scars or hypertrophic / keloid scars. The risks of pneumonia (chest infection) and DVT (clot in the leg) are present and measures will be taken to reduce these. Some minor revision treatment may be required after at least 6 months of healing to improve your shape.

If you have incorporated fat grafting to the buttocks you should avoid pressure on the buttocks for 3 weeks, so it is important to sit upright, taking your weight on your thighs rather than your buttocks. You should sleep on your front or side but not on your back, for 3 weeks following your buttock enhancement.
