The most advanced liposuction in Dubai, UAE
Liposuction, also known as liposculpture or just ‘lipo’, is suction assisted, surgical removal of fat from various target areas such as the neck, upper arms, chin, abdomen and hips to improve your appearance and help you wear the clothes you want to without worrying about lumps and bumps.
Is Liposuction right for you?
Liposuction is a very common cosmetic procedure – it is the number one procedure carried out in the United States. Our clinic has brought this world-class treatment to Dubai and the UAE. Dr Ricardo Ferla can use it on most parts of your body to remove unwanted areas of fat.
Liposuction by Body Areas
Liposuction is designed to improve your body contour. You should note that it is not designed for weight loss. Liposuction permanently removes and re-contours the body fat from areas of the body to reshape and restore a more aesthetic balance. Often these areas are hereditary.
Areas where liposuction is commonly performed include the thighs, hips, abdomen and back. Sometimes liposuction is performed in the neck and in the arms.
Dr Ricardo Ferla sometimes uses liposuction in Dubai along with other surgeries to remove excess fat, for example, with mini-abdominoplasty (mini-tummy tuck) or arm lift and thigh lift.
The important thing is that the skin has enough elasticity to contract after the fat is removed. If it does not, then further surgical intervention such as an Abdominoplasty or ‘Tummy Tuck’ may be required as well.
Preparation and things to consider before undergoing fat removal/ liposuction in Dubai?
- Get lab testing or a medical evaluation
- Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
- Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding
Often the procedure will involve transferring some of the fat remove from one area, into another to achieve a balanced aesthetic result. One such example is the Brazilian Butt Lift, which we also offer to individuals in UAE.
What Happens During Liposuction in Dubai?
You will be given a general anaesthetic and then Dr Ferla will make some small incisions to the target areas and insert a cannula through them. The cannula is attached to a vacuum device that is then moved up and down to break up fat cells and suction them out of the body. Liposuction can also be performed with the aid of internal ultrasound, where a cannula that can emit ultrasound is placed into the incisions. The ultrasound waves then liquefy fat cells, making suctioning easier.

After getting liposuction in Dubai from our clinic, you will feel sore but will be provided with pain relief. Your incisions will be supported by bandages or a support corset to help reduce bruising and swelling. You may also be given antibiotics to prevent infection. You will have quite substantial bruising, depending on the amount of liposuction you had. Deep bruising can take up to six months to heal completely, although you will feel better after two weeks and well enough to attend work after a few days.
A course of Lipomassage such as LPG Endermologie is important for draining of fluid and to accelerate the healing process; making sure the fat settles in a smooth manner and to avoid any lumps or bumps.
You should avoid strenuous activities like contact sports for the first month after your procedure, whether in Dubai or anywhere in UAE.
You will have a follow up appointment and any stitches you had will be removed and your incisions checked to see that they are healing correctly. You will be given the opportunity to discuss any issues or worries you may have, as we prioritise the satisfaction of our UAE customers.
After the bruising has gone you will see the final result. You will look slimmer and more toned in the right places – able to get into those summer clothes without showing unsightly love handles or fat rolls. Once fat has been removed via Liposuction, it will never come back, but that doesn’t mean one cannot put weight on – but if one continues to live a healthy and active life in the UAE, the effects of Liposuction will be permanent.
Cost of Liposculpture Surgery or Liposuction in Dubai or in the UAE
Different patients have different needs, which means we approach each individual case separately. This results in varied pricing for every plastic surgery procedure. Before we proceed with a procedure, we take into consideration various factors such as: patient age, skin health, skin laxity, overall health, and medical history. If the procedure will include the use of prosthesis or implants, the pricing will differ as well. Additionally, we will consider if the patient will be admitted at a hospital for general anaesthesia prior to the procedure. Given the complexity of the pricing process, we will only be able to provide a complete and detailed quote after a personal consultation with the patient.
Our patients can expect the highest level of personal care and attention from Dr Ricardoand our in-house team in the UAE. If you wish, we can provide references fromhighly satisfied patients who have built lasting relationships with Dr Ferla because ofour successful procedures.
