    You will be seen by our anaesthetist before surgery and then admitted on the day of surgery. The surgery is conducted under general anaesthesia and takes about 1-2 hours. An elliptical piece of excess skin is removed and wound stitched vertically to leave a scar in the inner aspect of the thigh so that the scar is hidden. Absorbable stitches are used to close the wound. Liposuction is done through tiny stab incisions which are not noticeable. You will have waterproof dressings over these wounds. You will be given some painkillers and antibiotics and discharged on the same day evening. You will be advised to wear compression garments after surgery.
