Your wellbeing is our priority


Sometimes no matter how much you diet and exercise, those stubborn areas of fat remain. And it can be soul-destroying when you put so much hard work in. For an instant change, liposuction, or fat removal surgery is your answer. It’s also known as lipo, liposculpture or lipoplasty. Essentially, liposuction is the targeted removal of fatty deposits with the use of cannulae and a vacuum. It can be performed on men and women and virtually anywhere on your body, including your face.

Common areas for liposuction include the abdomen, hips, flanks, inner and outer thighs, knees and chin. It’s sometimes performed to complement other surgical procedures such as neck lifts, tummy tucks and gynaecomastia (which is the build-up of fat tissues in the male chest). By choosing Karidis Clinic, you have access to a whole team of different experts so that you can combine treatments if you wish.

Liposuction remains the most effective method for removing fat cells in certain areas. There are different methods used including the tumescent technique, Ultrasonic liposuction, Power Assisted Lipoplasty (PAL) and SmartLipo™. You can chat about the type of procedure most effective for you during your consultation with your surgeon at our London clinic.


Karidis Clinic has been one of the UK pioneers of the Power-Assisted Lipoplasty technique (PAL) and has been using it with great success for over 15 years. Our surgeons feel that this is the gold standard in the field of liposuction as it offers consistent results whilst reducing the possibility of side effects. We feel that this is the technique by which all other lipoplasty devices should be judged.


When you return to your room after your liposuction surgery, you’ll notice a drip in the back of your hand through which intravenous fluids will be administered. As you’ll lose some fluid, along with the fat during liposuction, it’s normal for the anaesthetist to give you intravenous fluids to replace those lost in the procedure.

You’ll also be wearing a snugly-fitting compression garment. This must be worn over the treated area to control swelling and bleeding, and to help your skin shrink to fit your exciting new contour. You may feel a little drowsy as a result of the anaesthesia but are likely to feel otherwise quite well. It’s very common to have some bruising, swelling and minor initial lumpiness in the area.

It’s also fairly common to appear slightly uneven. This is usually completely normal and will settle over the course of the coming weeks. You may feel numb or tingly in some areas due to some nerve irritation. This is usually resolved within the first 6 months of surgery.
