Achieve Your Body Goals with Liposuction

Looking to eliminate stubborn fat pockets and sculpt your ideal physique? We offer liposuction tailored to your individual needs and goals. Our experienced surgeon, Dr Timothy Shim, will assess your concerns and recommend the best approach.


Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that sculpts and enhances specific problem areas by removing unwanted fat deposits. 

At Eagle Aesthetics & Surgery, our plastic surgeon Dr Timothy Shim is experienced in performing liposuction techniques to address all manner of stubborn bulges, from love handles and saddlebags to bra fat and double chins.

The Liposuction Process

During your consultation, Dr Timothy Shim will thoroughly examine the areas of concern and develop a customised liposuction treatment strategy. 

On the day of your scheduled surgery, you will receive local anaesthesia to numb the treatment regions. Advanced tumescent techniques to deliver controlled amounts of solution containing numbing medications, fluids, and medication to constrict blood vessels. The liposuction equipment then gently breaks up fat cells before carefully extracting them via tiny incisions. 

The treated area can be painstaking sculpted to achieve a result that is natural-looking, through precision contouring without excessive blood loss.

It is typically an outpatient procedure, however, you may need an overnight stay for significant fat removal.

Recovery From Liposuction

Days 1-3
You may experience moderate pain and soreness that can be managed with prescribed medication. You will also be prescribed compression garments, which should be worn diligently to reduce swelling and improve contour. Rest and limit unnecessary activity.

Weeks 1-2
Pain reduces significantly. Most people can return to work after 2 weeks. Compression garments should continue to be worn.

Weeks 3-5
At around 1 month, patients typically do not feel any more pain and soreness. Some swelling may still remain. After about 4 weeks, most are able to resume light exercise, though you should still avoid strenuous activity.

Week 6+
Most bruising and swelling should subside. Depending on your healing and the instructions of the surgeon, compression garments may no longer be needed. You may also fully see results by this point. Enjoy your new body!

Is Liposuction Suitable For Me?

Liposuction is a personalised procedure to help you improve your confidence and satisfaction with your appearance. Rather than trying to achieve someone else’s ideal image, it should enhance how you see yourself. If you are bothered by excess fat deposits – located anywhere on your body – that don’t respond to diet or exercise, liposuction may be right for you.

A Good Candidate For Liposuction

Ideal candidates for liposuction are:

  • Adults within 30% of their ideal weight, and have healthy, elastic skin and good muscle tone
  • Individuals in good physical and mental health and no current medical issues
  • Individuals with realistic expectations about weight loss and specific goals with regards to body contouring
An individualised consultation can determine how well your goals, anatomy and lifestyle align with a liposuction procedure.

Benefits of Liposuction

When performed by a skilled plastic surgeon, liposuction permanently eliminates stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise. This targeted reduction contours problem areas and improves proportional body shape. 

The precision removal of bulges boosts physical and emotional well-being by enhancing self-image and confidence

In many cases, liposuction also improves skin tightness by removing underlying fat that causes looseness. 

Combined with healthy lifestyle habits, liposuction delivers long-lasting results and a slimmer silhouette.

How long do liposuction results last?

Liposuction is a permanent fat reduction procedure - the treated fat cells are eliminated and do not regrow. However, your weight can still fluctuate based on your lifestyle habits.

To maintain your sculpted results over time, it is important to pair liposuction with a healthy diet and exercise routine. Weight gain may cause some treated areas to bulge again. Staying within a few kilograms of your weight at the time of surgery can help to preserve your body shape.

Is general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia used for liposuction?

For a larger area, general anaesthesia may be used, while a smaller area usually can be done with local anaesthesia. During consultation, our plastic surgeon Dr Timothy Shim will be able to share more on the process based on your condition and ideal outcomes.

Is liposuction safe?

When performed by an experienced, certified plastic surgeon in an accredited facility using proper technique and technology, liposuction is considered a generally safe procedure.

However, as with any surgical procedure, there are still risks. We take every precaution to minimise side effects like infection, blood clots and prolonged swelling.

During the consultation process, you will be carefully screened to ensure your health and expectations are suitable for the liposuction.

With decades of plastic surgery experience, you can trust our plastic surgeon Dr Timothy Shim to safely enhance your body with precision liposuction.

How much does liposuction cost?

The cost of liposuction can vary based on several factors like the number and size of treatment areas, the type of liposuction technology used, and whether it is performed alone or combined with other procedures.

During a confidential 1-to-1 consultation, Dr Timothy Shim can thoroughly assess your condition to determine a customised treatment plan and associated pricing tailored specifically for your goals and needs.
