Liposuction is a procedure used to remove areas of fat. The fat is removed via a small cannula that is inserted beneath the skin, and is attached to a vacuum.
I had 2 procedures completed by Mr Khan and the team at the Candover. From the first meeting to my post operation follow up, I felt in control and informed of each step. The Candover offers a friendly, professional and go that extra mile attitude. I would highly recommend The Candover.”
There is a limit to how much fat can be safely removed during a liposuction operation. Popular areas for liposuction are stomach, thighs, buttocks and chin.
