What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, is a highly effective procedure aimed at permanently removing localised deposits of fat through small, minimally invasive incisions. The primary goal of liposuction is to achieve a slimmer contour by eliminating stubborn fat cells. While it is important to note that liposuction is not a solution for excess skin, it can significantly improve areas with persistent fat deposits.

Dr. Veerle Rotsaert, a renowned plastic surgeon with years of experience and meticulous attention to detail, offers exceptional liposuction procedures in London. With her expertise, she can help you achieve your desired aesthetic goals by customising the surgical plan to suit your specific needs.

Things You Should Know Before Your Liposuction Procedure In London

  1. Pre-procedure Preparation: If you’re considering liposuction with Dr Veerle Rotsaert, it’s important to schedule a consultation to discuss your concerns and goals. During this consultation, Dr V will evaluate the areas you wish to target and assess your suitability for the procedure. She will explain the liposuction process in detail, including the techniques involved and the expected results. Dr Veerle Rotsaert will provide guidance on pre-procedure preparations, which may include certain medical tests, adjustments to medications, and lifestyle modifications to optimize your safety and surgical outcome.

  2. Risks and Potential Complications: Liposuction, like any surgical procedure, carries certain risks. Dr Veerle Rotsaert believes in providing her patients with transparent and accurate information. During your consultation, she will explain the potential risks and complications associated with liposuction, such as bleeding, infection, fluid accumulation, or changes in sensation. However, with her expertise and meticulous surgical techniques, Dr V aims to minimise these risks and ensure a safe and successful procedure.

  3. Pre-procedure Instructions: Dr Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with detailed pre-procedure instructions to follow before your liposuction. These instructions may include guidelines on medication management, dietary restrictions, and lifestyle modifications to optimise your safety and surgical outcome. It’s crucial to follow these instructions carefully and address any questions or concerns you may have with Dr V’s team to ensure a smooth and successful procedure.

  4. Preparing for Recovery: Proper preparation for the recovery period is essential for a successful liposuction. Dr Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with personalised guidance on how to prepare for your recovery, including arranging for assistance with daily activities, ensuring you have comfortable post-operative garments, and understanding the healing process. Dr V will provide you with detailed instructions on post-operative care, including guidelines for managing swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Throughout your recovery, Dr Veerle Rotsaert and her team will be there to support you and monitor your progress.

  5. Questions to Ask: When considering liposuction, it’s important to have all your questions addressed. Here are some key questions to ask Dr Veerle Rotsaert during your consultation:

  • Which areas of the body can be treated with liposuction?
  • Can you show me before and after photos of previous patients who underwent liposuction?
  • What is the expected recovery timeline, and when can I resume my normal activities?
  • What are the potential long-term effects or complications associated with liposuction?
  • Will liposuction alone achieve my desired results, or do I need additional procedures?

What Kind of Anaesthesia is Used?

To ensure your comfort and safety during the liposuction procedure, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert typically uses a combination of local anesthesia and sedation. Local anesthesia is administered to numb the specific treatment area, while sedation helps you remain relaxed and calm throughout the procedure. Dr. Rotsaert will discuss the anesthesia options with you during your consultation and address any concerns you may have.

How Long Does Liposuction Takes?

The duration of a liposuction procedure varies depending on several factors, including the extent of the treatment area and the amount of fat being removed. On average, liposuction can take anywhere from one to three hours. Dr. Rotsaert takes great care and precision to ensure the best possible outcome, dedicating ample time to each patient’s procedure.

Liposuction Results & Aftercare

Following your liposuction procedure, you can expect to see a noticeable improvement in the treated areas. The results of liposuction are long-lasting, as the fat cells removed during the procedure do not return. However, it is essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet to preserve your results and prevent the accumulation of new fat deposits.

Dr. Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with comprehensive post-operative instructions to ensure optimal healing and recovery. She will guide you through the aftercare process, which may include wearing compression garments, taking prescribed medications, and attending follow-up appointments.

How Long Before I Can Return to Normal Activities?

Recovery times can vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the liposuction procedure and individual healing rates. Generally, most individuals can expect to resume their normal activities within a week or two after liposuction. However, it is essential to listen to your body and follow Dr. Rotsaert’s post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth and safe recovery.

Will I Have Scars After Liposuction

During the liposuction procedure, Dr. Rotsaert makes small incisions, typically ranging from a few millimetres to a centimetre in length. These incisions are strategically placed in inconspicuous locations, taking into account your unique anatomy and the targeted treatment areas. By placing the incisions discreetly, Dr. Rotsaert aims to minimise the visibility of any resulting scars.

Furthermore, Dr. Rotsaert utilises advanced surgical techniques and precise surgical instruments to ensure the smallest incisions necessary to achieve the desired results. With her exceptional attention to detail, she strives to leave you with minimal scarring, allowing you to feel confident and comfortable in your newly contoured body.

Dr. V's View On Liposuction

“As a highly experienced plastic surgeon, I believe that liposuction can be a transformative procedure for patients who have struggled with localised fat deposits. The ability to sculpt and contour the body through targeted fat removal is truly remarkable. It brings me immense joy to witness the positive impact liposuction can have on my patients’ self-confidence and overall well-being. If you are considering liposuction, I invite you to schedule a consultation, during which we can discuss your goals and determine the most appropriate treatment plan to achieve the results you desire.”


Yes, following liposuction surgery, it is typically recommended to wear a compression garment. This garment provides support to the treated areas, minimises swelling, and helps contour the body during the healing process. Dr. Rotsaert will provide specific instructions on how long to wear the garment and when you can safely remove it.

One year post surgery - The best decision going to Dr V! Having lost a significant amount of weight (50kg) at the age of 21 my breasts were very low from the loose skin. After my initial consultation where she helped me and talked through all the options I had and guided me with her expertise on what would look best from her professional opinion from feeling my skin and her experience. Especially as my skin was very difficult. Had a breast lift with implants put it, surgery went so smoothly and 1 year post op they are looking incredible. So thankful to Dr V and her team, as well as the nurses at the Welbeck Hospital. After the operation was getting constant check ups both in person and over the phone. Would recommend she made feel so comfortable and the has made me so confident in my body! Thank you for everything 🙂

Undergoing elective surgery was not something I rushed into. After extensive research I met with Dr Rotsaert, and knew I had met the right surgeon to carry out my procedure. Finally a surgeon who is professional, compassionate, and demonstrates expertise!!! My initial enquiry was well received by a friendly knowledgeable team who made the booking process easy. Dr Rotsaert created a relaxed environment for me at consultation, and listened to my concerns - I left feeling reassured and well informed with my personal treatment plan. The lovely nurses Amina and Alice helped prepare me for surgery and were extremely attentive (they were also at hand for my post operative care which was nice for continuity) When I arrived at hospital the experience and trust was confirmed as soon as I walked through the door to the moment I left. I was made to feel VIP and relaxed in the knowledge I was in safe hands. Post operatively went as smoothly as I could have hoped for. The only fault being my personal lack of patience to being fully recovered. 6 weeks after surgery I can honestly say I’m delighted with my results and as cliche as it sounds wish I had done it sooner. Dr Rotsaert and her team listened and guided me throughout. With their support and expertise they turned a nerve wracking decision of mine into one of best decisions I’ve made. Gold star service!
From the very first email I sent and my initial consultation with Dr V, all the way through to my surgery day and 6 week post operation appointment, I have been so happy with how I have been treated. Dr V always made me feel comfortable and at ease, and I trusted she understood exactly what I wanted. The results are even better than I could've imagined. I have a newfound love for my body and my confidence has increased tenfold, all thanks to her wonderful work. Definitely the best decision I have every made. I can't thank Dr V and her team enough. Highly recommend!

I’d highly recommend Dr V to anyone looking for a natural breast enhancement. She put me at ease straight away, no getting topless on Zoom, no 3D simulation, but a face to face initial consultation telling me exactly what was possible and making me touch and try several implants on. I also felt like she would take her time during the surgery instead of rushing it in 20-30 minutes which was important to me. The recovery was way easier than I expected and my results 2.5 months in are amazing, I got my breasts back which had “deflated” after having and breastfeeding my daughter and I really wanted that natural effect which I got with Motiva Joy implants and demi projection. The fact the post-op appointments are included is also a great touch.

Dr Veerle was everything I had hoped I would find in a surgeon. Having done a lot of my own research and prep over the course of a few years, she was able to answer all my questions in a way that reassured me she was extremely professional, fully knowledgable and skilled/experienced enough to offer the best result. She was also generous with her time where it mattered whilst being efficient in the process. There was absolutely no hint of an upsell or any encouragement to consider additional procedures from her side which I had encountered elsewhere and had put me off. Post-procedure she has also proven a dedicated surgeon and is happy to be involved in the evolving result and post-operative journey. Dr Veerle is the best!
