The Problem

There are some small body parts, such as the chin and bingo wings that store pockets of fat that cannot be reduced through diet or exercise. Some women may also store substantial amounts of fat tissue in their breasts, resulting in a disproportionate body shape.

Many of us have stubborn pockets of fat on our hips, thighs, arms and even around our abdomen, that simply won’t shift through diet or exercise.

MicroLipo is a minimally invasive liposuction, fat removal and body sculpting procedure aimed to enhance your body’s contour, definition and physique. MicroLipo is available exclusively at The Private Clinic, performed by one of the few surgeons in Europe offering this treatment – Dr Puneet Gupta. Dr Gupta was extensively trained by Dr Jeffrey Klein, the inventor of the procedure, and has perfected his technique to successfully use MicroLipo for fat removal, breast reduction and an alternative treatment for Lipoedema and Lymphoedema.

Microcannular Tumescent Liposuction is one of the latest and most advanced body shaping treatments and is truly the least invasive liposuction treatment available.

Advantages of MicroLipo:

  • The procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic
  • MicroLipo is minimally invasive, causing no damage to other body tissues
  • There is minimal risk of bleeding, bruising and discomfort
  • Return to work within 2 days, exercise within a week

The Problem

There are some small body parts, such as the chin and bingo wings that store pockets of fat that cannot be reduced through diet or exercise. Some women may also store substantial amounts of fat tissue in their breasts, resulting in a disproportionate body shape.

What is MicroLipo?

MicroLipo is the brainchild of Dr. Jeffrey Klein, who wanted to achieve excellent cosmetic results but with a rapid post-operative return to normal activities.

MicroLipo gets its name from the tiny size of the cannulas used to extract the fat, the smallest of which is just 0.9mm wide and the largest of which is 3mm.

The technique can remove up to 3.5 litres of fat. The small size of the cannulas is particularly good for targeting smaller body areas such as:

Bingo wings – Chin – Inner thighs – Knees – Flanks – Abdomen – Female Breasts ReductionMale Chest (Man boobs or Moobs)

Dr Puneet Gupta is one of a very few doctors in the UK and Europe offering both VASER Liposuction Microcannular Liposuction and is probably the only practising doctor in the UK and Europe to be trained extensively in the art of MicroLipo by the inventor himself, the legendary Dr Jeffrey Klein of USA. Dr. Gupta has also pioneered its use as a non-invasive alternative to breast reduction surgery.

A very diluted local anaesthesia is injected into the fat causing the targeted areas to become swollen and firm. This swelling helps separate the fat cells from the other surrounding tissue. The fat is then removed using microcannulas with a diameter less than 3 millimetres.

Traditional liposuction cannulas have a larger diameter and remove fat rather quickly, which increases the risk of irregularities and depressions in the skin. The use of microcannulas, on the other hand, allows smoother and more uniform results.

The Results

You will notice a dramatic change to your shape and outline immediately after the procedure. However, real results will begin to appear within 3-4 weeks post procedure.

A healthy lifestyle paired with good nutrition and exercise will maintain your results. If you gain any weight, it will affect the surrounding areas.

Recovery / Downtime

MicroLipo involves minimal downtime and you can get back to your daily routine almost immediately. Many patients return to work within 48 hours and resume their typical exercise schedule within 7 days. The small incisions made during the procedure will not require stitches.

Often the very first question we are asked, the cost of liposuction should never be your main consideration when deciding on a procedure.

The cost of liposuction procedures are determined by various factors, such as the number of areas you are having treated and the amount of time your procedure will take. Certain areas of the body require more time and precision than others, which will impact the amount of time it takes for the surgeons to carry out your procedure.

Microlipo can start from around £2,800 but will increase depending on the number of areas treated.

“The benefits of Dr Gupta’s insistence on working from the knee to groin are evident to me now. My leg shape is a lot straighter and, more importantly, it looks entirely natural. Since deciding to go ahead with the operation, I have spoken more openly about the affliction I found so awkward for so long.”– (Underwent Microlipo with Dr Puneet Gupta) *
