Liposuction Treatment at our Dublin, Ireland Clinic

Remove unwanted fat and re-shape your body the way you like it with liposuction.

Our expert team of cosmetic surgeons routinely carry out highly effective, natural-looking, affordable liposuction procedures — and you can be back to work in as little as one week.

Liposuction is the world’s most popular type of aesthetic surgery, and thousands of procedures are carried out safely in Ireland every year.

Liposuction involves the removal of unwanted fat from specific parts of the body. Liposuction is popular because, in a lot of people, fat can accumulate naturally in certain areas and then be difficult to remove — even with a healthy diet and exercise.

Liposuction surgery is a very efficient way to remove stubborn fat. Helping to leave behind a more balanced and defined body shape. Some of our most popular procedures target areas such as:

  • Stomach liposuction (abdomen)
  • Chin liposuction
  • Facial liposuction
  • Upper arms
  • Breasts
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Knees

Look and feel great with effective fat removal surgery that works for both men and women at our liposuction clinic in Dublin.

More men are looking for liposuction and cosmetic surgery than ever before. And, like women, there are many different areas of the body where men like to treat with liposuction.

Men and women tend to store fat on their bodies in different places and in different ways — but our lipo Dublin team have lots of experience working on both sexes.

One of the most common procedures is male breast liposuction or ‘gynaecomastia’. But other procedures targeting the stomach, face, arms and more are also growing in popularity.

Liposuction can help to reduce
bodily insecurities and improve your
psychological wellbeing.

We live in a society that idealises certain body images or types. Which can be upsetting to some people who cannot achieve a similar look, even if they exercise and eat well.

Liposuction is a short procedure that can help to give you the body image that you want. Helping to improve your physical and mental wellbeing.

The Process: About our liposuction procedure

Making the decision to have liposuction is not a small matter. That’s why we want you to feel as certain as possible that it’s the right decision for you.

At the consultation, your surgeon will sit down with you for a personal discussion about what it is you hope to achieve, and the best way to go about it. Not everyone is able to get exactly what they want due to their existing body shape, skin type and fat levels. And it is important that this is communicated clearly. Your surgeon will also clearly tell you about the risks involved in undergoing liposuction surgery.

Then we will clearly establish how much fat we hope to remove. And this will be followed by the standard and necessary clinical photographs of your body. We will also take some key measurements.

The consultation will also cover your pre-procedure, post-procedure and recovery phases. In which we will carefully record your history of previous surgeries, any medications you take, and any allergies you have. Finally, you will be assessed to see if you really are ‘ready’ and fit for the liposuction to take place.

If your surgeon feels you are ready for the liposuction to take place, you will then be given the opportunity to ‘cool off’. That is, to make sure that you really are ready for the liposuction and that it is what you want. This period is usually around 2 weeks. During this period, you are welcome to contact us and to discuss your potential liposuction procedure as many times as you see fit.

If you are confident that liposuction is what you want, then after your final consultation we can move on to the procedure itself.

However, we must recommend the following before undergoing the lipo process:

  • Quit smoking for 6 weeks before your procedure — smoking slows down the recovery process and can increase the chances of complications
  • Do not take Aspirin for 1 week before your procedure — or any medication that contains Aspirin, for reasons that your surgeon will make clear in the consultation
  • Do not have any food or drink 6 hours before your procedure — except for water and black coffee and tea, which you can still sip 2 hours before admission

We kindly ask that you arrive 1 hour before the liposuction procedure is due to begin. This is so that a nurse can record your vitals, such as blood pressure. Then your anaesthetist and surgeon will also visit, to make you feel more relaxed and also to make the final mark-ups.

Liposuction is a straightforward procedure and only takes 1 — 3 hours under a general anaesthetic. It involves the placement of a thin tube into the area where the fat is to be removed. The tube is moved in a backwards and forwards motion to break the fat down, and a suction machine is used to remove the loosened fat from the body. Because the thin tubes are so small, the incisions are also small. And any scarring will be minimal.

After your procedure, you will recover in one of our specially-designed recovery rooms for a period of around 2 — 3 hours. Here you will be carefully assessed by our team of nurses. Once they are satisfied that you are ready to return home, you will be allowed to leave the clinic.

After your procedure, you’ll have access to our dedicated, 24/7 nursing team. In case you have any questions or concerns. This nursing team are specially trained to help you feel more comfortable and to adjust to life in the recovery phase.

In most cases, liposuction recovery is very quick. Most of the pain should go in just a few days. But there are still a few things that you must do:

  • Total rest for 1 — 3 days after the procedure
  • Wear a compression garment to help with the healing and the desired redistribution of the fat cells in the treated area
  • Take at least 1 week off work to ensure you heal well
  • Avoid UV light for 2 — 4 weeks to help your scars to heal

After 1 week, we’ll ask that you come in and see your nursing team to make sure everything is going just right. We will also discuss with you further support to help with the healing and scarring.

After 6 weeks post-procedure, we’ll ask you back into our clinic again for a final assessment and check-up.

Liposuction FAQs

1How much does liposuction cost in Ireland?

About €2,250 — €6,700. It all depends on how much lipo you want. For example, a very common request is for lipo to be done on just the tummy and thighs. This costs around the lower end of the price scale (around €2,250). A total body transformation course will cost more.

We can help you figure out a plan to pay for your liposuction cost in a way that’s fair, realistic, and manageable. Ring or email our clinic for more information.

2How much do you have to weigh to qualify for liposuction?

There is no set weight limit for liposuction. But if you are obese or have a very high BMI this could be a problem. There are always exceptions, however. For example, it could be that you have a stable body weight with a large concentration of fat in one particular area. And studies have shown that even in moderately obese patients, lipo can be carried out safely.

If you’re in doubt or have any questions at all, just contact our cosmetic surgeon team. We can even get you in for a free, no-obligation consultation to assess your situation.

3How many sizes do you lose with liposuction?

About 1 — 2 dress sizes, in some cases. But generally, most of our customers lose about 2 — 5lbs in total. Although liposuction can and does help you to lose weight, that’s not really what it’s for. Liposuction is about removing fat from unwanted areas of the body. And in many cases, our customers choose to redistribute the fat to other, more desirable areas.

4Can you be too old for liposuction?

No. There is no age limit. As long as you’re in good health and suitable for lipo, you’re good to go! For example, this study performed liposuction on candidates aged 55 — 77 years and found “no severe adverse effects” and reported high patient satisfaction.

Most liposuction in Ireland procedures are trouble-free. However, as with all types of surgery, complications are a possibility.

Liposuction is a popular and routine procedure that is carried out all over the world. It is one of the least invasive cosmetic body procedures. And the chance of developing complications is very small. Ireland is no exception and has excellent healthcare regulations and standards.

But we want you to fully understand the risks before committing to any decision. And so your surgeon will talk you through all of them comprehensively at your consultation.
