Liposuction is a procedure designed to remove unwanted fat deposits, which are resistant to both dieting and exercise, from certain areas of the body.
This procedure is not a weight loss procedure, but a body contouring procedure. An ideal candidate for liposuction is relatively fit, has firm, elastic skin, good muscle tone, and is within 20% of their ideal weight, but still possesses excess fat in certain areas that appears disproportionate with the rest of their body.
Dr Moncrieff is a leader in liposuction in Newcastle, offering it most frequently as part of other surgery as it is often required to deliver the best body and breast surgery outcomes. He offers traditional liposuction (generally used in conjunction with other surgery such as breast reductions) and Vaser liposuction which offers reduced recovery times.
