Mr Omar Tillo – Consultant Plastic Surgeon
At Centre for Surgery, our surgeons have specialist expertise in liposculpture for men. Our Surgeons perform many Liposculpture procedures annually and are international thought leaders in their field.
Centre for Surgery provide Liposculpture procedures to patients from across the world. We specialise in liposculpture, and are therefore able to offer the highest quality of service to our patients. This is reflected in our very high levels of patient satisfaction. Patient safety and welfare is our number one concern, and this is reflected in our exemplary safety record to date. Our day surgery units are purpose-built and specially equipped for advanced liposculpture.
We utilise the most advanced Liposculpture technology available today to ensure the most aesthetically pleasing results are obtained.
Our Surgeons have many years experience of performing Liposculpture and hold training courses in London – the world’s premier destination for Cosmetic Surgery.
Your consultation will always be performed by a fully trained Surgeon. The same surgeon will also monitor your progress after the procedure. This allows full continuity of care.
We offer a comprehensive aftercare guarantee to all our patients across all our centres. All patients will have the benefit of comprehensive follow-up by their surgeon. After the procedure, patients have access to their surgeon for consultation, for as many times as they wish. This is over and above the standard consultation regime following the liposculpture procedure. This allows total peace of mind to our patients knowing they have access to a complete and comprehensive package of care.
The latest research evidence confirms that the quality of the medical decision-making on your care has the the single biggest impact on the final treatment outcome. Between happiness and dissatisfaction, this can be simplified to one decision – whether to have the liposculpture procedure or not.
Centre for Surgery follow the latest international guidelines on this crucial area of optimising patient outcomes.
The body areas that can be treated by Liposculpture are different for women and men. In men, who comprise about 15% to 25% of liposculpture patients, the most commonly treated areas include the abdomen, flanks (“love-handles”), and breasts. At consultation, you can specify which areas you would like treated – your surgeon will then devise a treatment plan to create the most aesthetically pleasing result for you.

Centre for Surgery surgeons employ a technique that uses large volumes of very dilute local anaesthesia that is injected into the fat causing the targeted areas to become tumescent, or swollen and firm. tumescent anaesthesia is widely regarded as the safest form of anaesthesia for liposculpture. The tumescent anaesthesia persists for many hours, and there is no need for prescription pain medications after the procedure. Liposculpture can be accomplished painlessly totally by local anaesthesia. The patient remains awake during the procedure and can communicate freely. Centre for Surgery employ the latest liposculpture technologies to ensure fat deposits are removed in the safest and most effective manner possible.
Liposculpture is an advanced form of liposuction but is slightly different to conventional liposuction. It is used particularly in the process of precision body contouring, which uses the removal and sometimes reshaping of fat to enhance the prominence and definition of muscles and certain problem areas of the body, like the abdomen, hips and thighs.
Liposculpture is performed under local anaesthetic and can therefore avoid most of the swelling and bleeding associated with earlier forms of liposuction. An anaesthetic solution is usually injected into the area being treated to constrict the arteries and blood vessels and keep potential bleeding and swelling to a minimum. Advanced liposculpture differs from liposuction mainly because our surgeons are using their artistic skills to sculpt the areas causing concern and not just physically removing fat deposits.
Advanced liposculpture can even remove greater amounts of fat than liposuction if required but is more concerned specifically with body sculpting and more subtly reshaping certain areas of the body. It is used most commonly on the abdomen, upper thighs, back and upper arms.
The technique we use is based on a movement of NUTATION, which enables the fatty tissues to be removed while respecting the other tissues. This will make the postoperative course shorter and much more comfortable for the patient. 3D Advanced liposculpture represents a real evolution for the patient and for the surgeon. Over the last 10 years, this technology has become the reference technique in LIPOSCULPTURE.
With numerous academic studies all over the world (Europe, USA, Brazil, Asia,…) and without having been ever contradicted, this technique has already convinced thousands of patients across the world.
- Less bruising
- Less swelling
- Better skin retraction
- Shorter postoperative recovery
- Ability to treat any zones of the body, even the most delicate ones
Advanced liposculpture is used to distinguish liposuction from 3-dimensional body contouring – the hallmark of advanced liposculpture. It’s not just about fat removal, it’s about reshaping the body by removing (and sometimes adding) the right amounts of fat in the right places.
With liposuction the surgeon is doing just that – suctioning fat only without true 3 dimensional contouring of the entire body silhouette. Considering the overall 3D shape and outcome is truly body sculpting which means your surgeon needs to perform artistic lipoaspiration while refining the body contours to achieve maximum aesthetic results.
Infrasonic vibration interferes with your brain’s pain receptors which suppresses or blocks pain entirely, and feels like being tickled.
A unique “triple movement” cannula removes fat without causing trauma to the rest of your body so life is back to normal in days, not weeks.
Safer than general anaesthesia, you’re awake for the procedure so you can talk with your surgeon and maintain control of your body.
- Less Bruising, Less Swelling
Body fat is gently removed using a special cannula that does not burn or cut and stops when non-fatty tissue is touched, reducing trauma while improving fat removal.
- Even Skin Tightening And Toning
The fibrous network and non-fatty tissue under the skin are preserved while improved fat removal uniformity provides excellent skin retraction and flat, smooth skin.
- Treat Any Zone On Your Body
Remove stubborn body fat from one or more areas at the same time, including difficult or delicate spots that require extra special care.
- Precise Body Contouring
The body is sculpted with precision to the desired shape and size, removing all types of fat, including fibrous, more effectively.

– Upper arms
– Outer thighs
– Inner thighs
– Calves and ankles
Particularly in the abdominal area, there are often puckered scars for example following appendix removal. These scars make aspiration more difficult, and are also visible after liposculpture as unsightly indented areas. This effect is due to the increased post traumatic formation of collagen tissue, which starts directly under the dermis and extends, depending on the depth of scarring, into the subcutaneous tissue and muscle fascias. In subcision, after the tumescent anaesthesia is administered and before actual liposculpture is begun, a 14-gauge cannula or suture scalpel is passed under such an area of scarring to sever the scarred connective tissue strands at all levels. Particular attention is paid to the superficial layer, which should not be treated in liposculpture. It must be kept in mind, especially if there is extensive or older scarring, that larger blood vessels may have ingrown and should therefore be treated with care. Subcision has proved successful in the case of very extensive cellulitic skin puckering, a technique developed largely by the Brazilian doctor, Doris Hexsel. Since here the surface topography is significantly affected by the arrangement of connective tissue fibres, the severing of these contributes to visual improvement.
What areas can be treated with liposculpture?
In men, who comprise about 15% to 25% of liposculpture patients, the most commonly treated areas include the abdomen, flanks and breasts
Am I an ideal candidate for liposculpture?
The ideal candidate must have an overall good health with good skin tone and elasticity, and must be near his desired weight. You are not considered a good candidate if you are obese or you experience yo-yo weight fluctuations.
How do I prepare for my liposculpture procedure?
We advise you to stop smoking four weeks prior to your surgery
Certain medications should not be taken if directed by your surgeon
To reduce the risk of infection you should use an antiseptic wash before your surgery
How long does the procedure take?
The time it takes for completion depends on the percentage of fat needed to be removed, however, liposculpture usually takes 2-3 hours in average.
How is liposculpture performed?
Liposculpture is performed under local anaesthetic for maximum safety optimisation throughout the procedure. A nutation movement is used to remove the fatty tissues and differs from liposuction mainly because our surgeons are using their artistic skills to sculpt the areas causing concern and not just physically removing fat deposits.
What is the recovery period like?
Expect some bruising and swelling but should ease in about ten days. You can resume mild exercise in about two weeks, and full activity can be resumed in about six weeks.
Is the procedure painful?
The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and therefore ensures minimal discomfort.
What is the maximum amount of fat that can be removed in one session?
To ensure patient safety, our surgeons limit the fat removal amount to 4 litres in one session. If you desire to have more fat removed then you may need more than one session.
What are the risks associated with liposculpture?
The main risks following liposuction include bleeding, infection, swelling and blood clots, but are very rare as these can be avoided with maximum safety optimisation.
