Question

I would like bodytite liposuction to my stomach, but don't want a general anaesthetic.

Is this possible?

Answer

It is possible to carry out radiofrequency assisted liposuction to the tummy under local anaesthetic or local anaesthetic and intravenous sedation.

If the volume to be removed is large, this approach is impractical.
