What Does It Involve?

If you have ever despaired about those areas of fat that never seem to respond to dieting or exercise, then liposuction surgery may be the solution. Liposuction becomes one of the most popular cosmetic surgery operations and is now an internationally approved method of safely removing unwanted fat.  The principle of liposuction involves the injection of a fluid containing local anaesthetic for pain relief and ease of aspiration.  A cannula is then inserted through a small incision to aspirate the excess fatty tissue.  Some of the harvested fat can be washed and re-injected into different parts of the body to augment and re-sculpture the body shape e.g. buttock.  The technology of fat transfer has improved significantly and even though the actual percentage of fat survival can still be improved, patients are happy with the results but may require secondary top-up.

There are a lot of commercial machines advertised with the suggestion of different advantages. Many of the suggested benefits of these special machines are for marketing purpose and Mr. Ho-Asjoe can explain to you the differences between them and how beneficial they are to you as a patient.


Liposuction is carried out under general anaesthetic and the patient can either have a surgery carried out as a day case or an overnight stay. Smaller areas can be treated with liposuction using a local anaesthetic, on a day case basis.  Patients are advised to wear a compression garment to help with swelling and support. Manual lymphatic drainage can be a beneficial adjunct to surgery a few weeks later.

With liposuction and liposculpturing, it is important to realise that the final outcome and the duration of the effect are also related to maintaining a good diet and exercise regime afterwards.

After Surgery

A pressure garment is worn around the treated area following the liposuction for about 21 days.

I am very satisfied as Mr Ho-Asjoe is very patient and takes the time to consider what’s best for the patient, respecting their needs, unlike other doctors I have seen. I have had a great experience and would happily refer friends and family to him.


Doctor Mark is one of the best surgeon. Can’t complain about the result, simply perfect.


Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe did my tummy tuck on the 13/4/17. Before surgery he explained the procedure and showed me pictures of surgeries he undertook. He clearly informed that i may have scarring after the operation, however I am please with the result. After the surgery Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe reassured me that if there were any problems I should contact him immediately any time of the day, which i found reassuring and alleviated any anxieties i may have had. The after care received was top notch and will definitely use him again for any future operation(s).


Mark is the consummate professional and will never entertain any unnecessary surgery. He is kind and considerate and listens. His skills are second to non and attention to detail, perfect. A wonderful experience which you can rarely say when having surgery.
