Body fat is not always bad, as your body needs it to keep your systems in check.

However, carrying excessive amounts of it can potentially cause health problems.

If exercise and diet have not effectively eliminated stubborn fat pockets, consider liposuction.

What is liposuction?

One of the most common cosmetic procedures worldwide, liposuction, removes stubborn body fat resistant to exercise and dieting. It can also help to contour disproportionate body shapes.

How does liposuction work?

Liposuction, or lipoplasty, is a fat removal procedure performed on multiple body parts such as arms, thighs, waist, and tummy.

Dr Ivan Puah's MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique is a multi-dimensional contouring approach that works on each individual's unique body shape, fat anatomy, fat distribution and skin laxity.

Localised stubborn fat that fails to respond to exercise or diet is removed, while body sculpting is carried out simultaneously.

Considering that surgical scarring is a concern for patients, Dr Ivan Puah will keep the incision scars to the bare minimum by strategically creating incisions to allow efficient access to the three layers of fat.

This approach encourages better skin retraction, which traditional liposuction fails to deliver. Results from Modern Liposuction with MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique are natural and well-shaped.

The versatility of the MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique enables Dr Ivan Puah to perform a comprehensive 360-degree fat removal and sculpting for troubled zones such as the abdomen and waists for natural and optimal results for patients.

How much weight can I lose with liposuction?

It is not meant for weight loss but to contour your body, removing fat that does not respond to diet and exercise.

How would I know which doctor to turn to for the best results?

Look for a doctor who is liposuction accredited by Singapore’s Ministry Of Health. He or she should have a minimum of five years of liposuction experience.

Liposuction isn’t just about fat removal – for the best aesthetic results, your doctor must also have a keen eye for sculpting and body contouring.
