"Enhancing....but preserving natural beauty."
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi
We pride ourselves to be one of the leading aesthetic clinics in London in offering to our patients all options of Liposuction and skin tightening techniques.
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures worldwide. It is an operation that sucks excess fat out from under the skin. It can remove small amounts of fat that haven't been able to shift with diet and exercise. Liposuction is not a treatment for weight control or obesity, and it can't remove cellulite or stretch marks.
For a lot of people losing weight, toning up and achieving the figure they want requires a combination of healthy eating and regular exercise, but some can be left with stubborn pockets of fat that no amount of exercise or dieting can shift. Overall weight cab often be reduced but certain areas such as the inner thighs or the lower back may be still stubbornly holding on to those last few inches of fat.
Liposuction can be used on almost any area of the body where fat tends to settle, including the neck, chin, arms, abdomen, back, buttocks, hips, thighs, calves, ankles and for Gynecomastia (male breast tissue).
Liposuction surgery is designed to help remove these areas of fat and reshape particular areas of the body and effectively eliminate the last stubborn pockets of fat without gruelling diets, exhausting and time-consuming exercise or harmful diet pills.
The concept of liposuction is simple, which involves the use a cannula which is connected to a powerful suction pump and inserted into the fat through small incisions in the skin. Fat removal is accomplished as the suction cannula creates tiny tunnels through the fatty layers. After surgery, these tiny tunnels collapse and thus result in an improved body contour.
There are several types of Liposuction Techniques:
- Suction-assisted liposuction (SAL)
- Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL and Vesar)
- Power-assisted liposuction (PAL)
- Twin-cannula (assisted) liposuction (TCAL or TCL)
- External ultrasound-assisted liposuction (XUAL or EUAL)
- Water-assisted liposuction (WAL)
- Laser assisted liposuction ( Smartlipo MPX and Smartlipo Trpilex).
- Radiofrequency Liposuction ( BodyTite).

We strive to provide the top quality care by employing the most advanced techniques and technologies and ensuring patients’s highest level of comfort. Liposuction is a day case surgery, meaning that patients will leave the clinic the day of the procedure. Our goal is to enable liposuction patients to leave as soon as are ready and to recover in the comfort of their own home surrounded by family. This can significantly aid in the healing process and can even cut the recovery time.
The consultation will take around 30 minutes during which time you will not be given the "hard sell". No pressure will be put on you to go through with the procedure, and you will not be forced to make a decision at the consultation. During your consultation, you will be asked about the results you would like to achieve from Liposuction. This will help your surgeon to understand your expectations and determine whether they can realistically be achieved.
Due to individual physical factors, not everyone will achieve the same results. Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi will take into consideration your unique characteristics in determining the most effective type of Liposuction treatment. Following an assessment of the elasticity of your skin, he will be able to estimate the amount of fat to be removed for the best results.

This is your opportunity to discuss your intended surgery in order that the cosmetic surgeon can ascertain your expectations as to what can realistically be achieved.
