A hugely popular procedure for anyone looking to lose large localised pockets of fat, liposuction is available in Chester through renowned female cosmetic surgeon, Anca Breahna.
Also known as lipoplasty, liposculpture or, sometimes, , just as ‘lipo’ the procedure can be perfect for when an otherwise healthy person has that annoying area of fat that seems to simply refuse to budge.
Liposuction Treatment Areas
Liposuction can treat a range of areas on the body, these including:
- Upper arms
- Hips and thighs
- Calves and ankles
If a prospective patient has a buildup of fat in an area such as the above, liposuction can be a superb way to remove it, creating a body that, post recovery, is more sculpted. A cause for concern eradicated.
Suitability for Lipo in Chester
Broadly speaking, any adult who is healthy but has a buildup of fat in specific areas can be a good candidate for this form of body sculpting.
It is worth noting that liposuction is not a treatment for overall obesity – it is not a weight-loss tool for someone who has a medical need to reduce their weight.
Liposuction addresses a problem that is all too common. Many of us have areas that are susceptible for retaining fat – however much we exercise, however good the diet it can be the case that fat stubbornly remains in some places – be this the abdomen, chin, thighs or other.
There is no easy way to naturally address this. We can exercise more, or refine the diet further but this will not target a specific area – it may still be that these pockets of fat remain. The body sees them as its reserves, it doesn’t want to let them go so easily.
You, however, definitely want to see the back of them.
Exercise and diet are of course important to overall health, but they may not target the specific areas of fat you want gone – at least not at all quickly.
Liposuction, however, can immediately remove the fat.
Liposuction is a relatively straightforward procedure for any experienced surgeon, but it is one performed under general anaesthetic.
Small incisions are made in the area being targeted and a cannula inserted to break up the fatty tissue. A device is attached to the cannula to then suck out the fat.
The incisions are then stitched and a post-surgery compression garment applied.
The procedure can be as a day case, though where there is more significant fat to be removed, or multiple fat deposits in different parts of the body to address an overnight stay may be required.
In Chester, this would be at the wonderful Nuffield Health Grosvenor Hospital.
Recovery Post Liposculpture
Time off work may be required post-surgery.
The precise aftercare plan will vary by patient and the part of the body treated. Typically, a compression garment will be required and the patient may also take painkillers to manage the low-level pain that can be present.
Ms Breahna would arrange follow-up consultations at regular intervals to ensure healing is as expected and to answer any queries – the first of these would be at one, two and six weeks.
Full effects of the procedure can be seen within three to six months.
For the results to persist it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The ‘Mummy Makeover’
One hugely popular procedure involving liposuction is the ‘Mummy Makeover’ – this is where liposuction is used in conjunction with breast augmentation.
It is popular post-pregnancy, hence the colloquial name.
The fat grafted is used to augment and reshape any lost breast volume caused through pregnancy and breastfeeding. For anyone who wants to address two issues – such as fat around the abdomen and also their breast shape or volume – this is obviously an efficient option that also cuts down recovery time (as there is a singular operation to recover from).
Whether a prospective patient is truly suitable for liposuction can only be ascertained via a detailed consultation.
Ms Breahna has a patient-focussed ethos, the consultation a chance for you to chat through your aims and hopes for the procedure and also to raise any concerns or queries.
The surgeon would listen and also factor in your medical history, ascertaining your suitability for liposuction as a treatment. Only if it is truly in your best interests would surgery then be considered.
A second consultation is common, this allowing the would-be patient time to come to an informed decision and think of any follow-up queries.

Chester is a beautiful walled city located within the county of Cheshire and on the River Dee.
The city was founded as Castrum, the Roman fort located there called Deva Vitrix – this was one of the main army camps in the UK. Deva then became a major settlement in its own right.
Chester has a long and rich history, it was given city status as far back as 1541 and its importance is shown by the castle and walls, these remaining among the most complete city walls in the UK. The castle received numerous extra fortifications through the centuries, the initial castle built under the instructions of William the Conqueror.
Chester remained important through later centuries, for instance the nearby Newtown, with the Shropshire Union Canal were key to distribution.
The city is now a popular one for tourists, this a key industry, so too are public administration and retail.
A large number of well known celebrities and famous people were born in Chester, or lived in the city, these include Russ Abbot, Beth Tweddle, Ben Foden and many people’s favourite James Bond – Daniel Craig.
