Abdominal Liposuction

Abdominal Liposuction Dubai

Fattan Polyclinic is one of the best medical clinics in Dubai providing liposuction of the stomach performed by an expert plastic surgeon. Liposuction surgery is the process that removes excess fat from particular parts of your body, which helps you to maintain a desirable shape and weight. It’s an aesthetic body contouring procedure for those who want to improve their body contour or people with localized obesity.
Pregnancy, childbirth, genetics, and simple ageing can very often result in excess fat deposits in the buttock and belly area that just seems to never go away, no matter how careful you are about what you eat, and no matter how much you exercise. This stubborn fat can be very frustrating, and it can take a real toll on your self-confidence.
This is why abdomen liposuction is one of the most popular procedures available. Abdominal liposuction is a straightforward procedure that removes stubborn pockets of fat, re-sculpts your stomach, and improves your overall shape. This lipo treatment is safe, convenient, involves little risk, and requires minimal downtime.


What is Abdominal Liposuction?

Also known as “Tummy Tuck“, abdominoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure specifically designed to provide you with the perfectly toned tummy that you have always wanted. Having flabby and loose skin in the tummy area is a grave issue encountered by almost 70 to 80% of women who have passed through a pregnancy. It seems almost impossible to lose this excessive skin with the help of exercise or healthy eating. In such instances, a surgical procedure like a tummy tuck can be a life-saver for you.

Abdominal liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that targets the localized fat deposits around your stomach through suction. It is a surgical procedure performed using a local anaesthetic in the plastic surgeon‘s clinic in less than two hours.

It’s the perfect choice for you if you have excess fat cell deposits around your abdominal area. It is not a replacement for weight loss.

Since this fat removal procedure uses LaserLipo to physically remove the fat cells from your abdomen, it’s ideal for body contouring and giving you a well-defined core.

How does Abdominal Liposuction work?

With abdominal liposuction, you only need a few small incisions to get the results you’re looking for. At Fattan Polyclinic, our world-class surgeons, use a cannula to target and suction fat from the areas of your stomach that you want to slim

At Fattan Polyclinic, we use the Awake Lipo method. This means that instead of general anaesthesia and its increased risks, we use only local anaesthesia and mild sedation.

Things to keep in mind before having a Tummy Tuck

Although liposuction surgery is one of the most effective ways to reduce belly fat, this is considered major surgery, so you need to keep a few things in mind before making this life-changing decision.

A tummy tuck is not for you if you are morbidly obese. Remember, a tummy tuck is just a surgical way to remove belly fat; it won’t help you in reducing your weight, so you must not opt for this surgery in order to reduce your overall body weight. If you are irritated due to your loosely hanging post-partum belly and want to get rid of it then keep in mind not to opt for tummy tuck until you are planning to have further kids. Getting pregnant after having a tummy tuck might raise complications for you.

We offer two different types of tummy tuck procedures including mini-abdominoplasty and complete abdominoplasty. Before you opt for any of these procedures, your doctor will ask you not to smoke for two weeks leading to the surgery date and lose weight by adopting a healthy strategy.

Abdominal Liposuction vs Tummy Tuck

We hear a lot about these two procedures, but they are entirely different:

The abdominal liposuction procedure eliminates fat using a powered sucking device called a cannula that removes fat cells and tissue. It is done under local anaesthesia. It is recommended for patients with good skin elasticity. It works best for men and women with a BMI of 30 or less. Abdominal liposuction is an outpatient cosmetic surgery procedure done generally in less than two hours. It does not leave any scars.

A Tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery performed on the lower abdomen. It involves general anaesthesia. The plastic surgeon will perform two cuts to remove loose skin. He will sew the muscles in your abdominal wall together if they have become stretched out. He will then pull the skin tight over your stomach. It is recommended for patients who have lost elasticity due to pregnancy and have excess skin that cannot resorb itself with exercise and diet in their midsection. There will be visible scars where the surgeon has performed the incisions to remove the excess skin.


Patients are typically intravenously sedated for abdomen liposuction, and a local anaesthetic may be applied to your stomach.

Once the area has been numbed, we will make small incisions around the area where your excess fat is. These incisions will allow a cannula to be inserted. The cannula is a long, thin, hollow tube that moves back and forth to break apart the fat, and then vacuums it away and out of the body.

Most tummy tuck procedures are performed under general anaesthesia. Lately, tummy tucks are combined with Liposuction and can be performed under local anaesthesia. In what many surgeons refer to as a full tummy tuck procedure, a surgical incision is made across the lower abdomen right above the pubic area. Following the creation of this initial incision, a second incision is made around the patient’s belly button as a means of loosening the surrounding skin. Next, the patient’s skin is separated from the wall of the abdomen. Following this surgical manoeuvre, the surgeon pulls the loose abdominal muscles from the left and right flanks and sutures them together This action results in tighter abdominal muscles, creating a stronger, firmer abdominal wall as well as a smaller waist. Directly after the tightening and suturing of the abdominal muscles, excess skin is removed and a new opening is made in the correct position for the belly button.

It takes 2 to 5 hours. A partial tummy tuck may take 1 to 2 hours. Patients may go back to work in 2 to 4 weeks. However, fading and flattening of scars are between 3 months and 2 years.

Abdominoplasty, also known as a Tummy Tuck or simply TT, is the surgery of the abdomen to remove the excess skin and fat that may accumulate after pregnancy, obesity or age. With a full abdominoplasty, benefits are also tightening of the abdominal muscles that may have become stretched out or lax over time. Even a new belly button can be obtained as a result! If you have an outtie or even an innie — the opposite can be acquired to go along with your new, taut stomach! This isn’t a simple procedure and you should definitely be aware of the risks and post-operative care and attendance that will be needed.

First and foremost, an individual must be in good health, not have any active diseases or serious, pre-existing medical conditions and must have realistic expectations of the outcome of their surgery. Communication is crucial in reaching one’s goals. You must be able to voice your desires to your surgeon if he/she is to understand what your desired results are. Discuss you goals with your surgeon so that you may reach an understanding with what can realistically be achieved.

You must be mentally and emotionally stable to undergo an cosmetic procedure. This is an operation which requires patience and stability in dealing with the healing period. There is sometimes a lull or depression after surgery and if there is already a pre-existing emotional problem, this low period can develop into a more serious issue. Please consider this before committing to a procedure. If the above describes you and you have the desire to rid yourself of loose sagging skin of the abdominal area, you may be a good candidate for Abdominoplasty. An ideal patient would have incredibly elastic skin. But, of course, we human beings are never ideal. But good elasticity certainly helps!

Normally women seek this procedure after pregnancy – although it is advised to wait until you are finished having children to have this procedure as the skin and muscles can get stretched out again as well as the dangers of your newly taut skin being unable to accommodate another pregnancy.
Also, if you are considering losing weight you should wait until after your desired weight is met. You may need additional surgery to remove the excess skin after you have lost the desired weight which would mean that the money spent on the previous abdominoplasty would be wasted and your skin can only be stretched so much.

The Abdominoplasty procedure is usually performed when a person is discontent with their appearance in the abdomen region. Although there is no normal age or time in one’s life (after 18), it is most often sought out after a woman has given birth and does not plan on having any more children. The reason that not having additional children is an important factor is that after the extra skin and muscle tissue is removed, the abdomen may not be able to accommodate another child. The skin could quite literally split. Although this probability will be individual-dependent. Mini tummy tucks are considered less invasive and are for minimal correction cases.

The surgeon will measure your abdomen and general torso region for an idea of an ideal abdomen size for you. Between pictures that you have brought in and with the information of how many children you have had, the two of you will set realistic goals on what is and isn’t possible with an Abdominoplasty. You must remember that no amount of surgery can restore your skin to its former condition.

The different techniques pertaining to Abdominoplasty consist of the different incision shapes and placement. Although most surgeons attempt to place the incisions in the most inconspicuous area, some surgeons may not, so please discuss this with your surgeon beforehand. Some surgeons go completely horizontal and straight across, some use a ‘V’ shape, some a ‘W’ shape and still others follow along the bikini line. In my opinion an incision following the bikini line is the optimum for concealment purposes although your body’s needs will determine the incision placement.

You are usually able to walk immediately after surgery and is in fact encouraged to do so 3 or 4 times per day for 1 to 2 minutes each time. However, you will more than likely not be able to stand up straight, more of a hunched over type of posture. The skin of the abdomen will be quite tight and you are usually instructed to remain bent over at least 45 degrees for the first 4 to 5 days after surgery. Patients will often note some back discomfort due to the 45 degree positioning for 4 to 5 days after surgery so ask your surgeon about muscle relaxants or valium.
The drains that have been placed will generally be removed 4 to 14 days after surgery. At the end of 4 days the patient may begin to straighten up and by six days post-op may or may not be fully straight. You should take it easy for at least two weeks after surgery. While the drains are in, you will be on bed rest with a very small amount of walking as outline above. However if your drains are in for an extended amount of time, you will of course not be expected to sit in bed all day. An abdominal pressure garment may be placed around you during one of your post-operative appointments and you may be instructed to wear this for 3 to 6 weeks.

Some swelling and discoloration are normal but generally this is minimal. Of course this is dependent upon the individual.
