I have tried diets and regular exercise, but I am still left with stubborn pockets of fat ”  


We target this stubborn fat while sculpting a desired body shape.


Liposuction, also known as fat removal, is a surgical procedure designed to help remove stubborn fat and reshape certain body areas.

In modern body contouring, liposuction is combined with skin tightening devices to sculpt the body and create a highly-defined body shape.

Liposuction, also known as Liposculpture, is a fat removal procedure used to contour and sculpt various areas of the body, including those resistant to diet and exercise. It is considered one of the most popular body sculpting procedures. 


There are different types of liposuction, depending on the device used to remove the fat from the body:

1. Suction-Assisted Liposuction (SAL) is one of the oldest techniques of removing fat and it works by using negative pressure to suck the fat away from the body via a cannula. It can be effective in the hands of a skilled surgeon however, it can be more time-consuming, can cause more trauma to the tissues and fatigue for the surgeon, as well as prolonged recovery compared to other liposuction techniques. Over the years, technology has evolved and this type of liposuction has been superseded by more advanced liposuction devices.

2. Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) uses a vibrating cannula to remove fat from the body. It is more effective than SAL, especially in large-volume liposuction procedures, as it removes fat with minimal tissue injury and fatigue for the surgeon. As a result, recovery time is shorter.


3. VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) Liposuction, also known as Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL), involves a low-frequency ultrasound emitted from the tip of a cannula. The ultrasound breaks down and emulsifies fat,  which is then removed using a power-assisted liposuction (PAL) cannula. It is suggested that the device can remove fat with minimal bruise, swelling and blood loss and fast recovery compared to other liposuction devices however, the evidence in the literature to support this, is so far limited. In addition, VASER liposuction can also tighten the skin thus, creating a more athletic look. It is particularly effective in areas where the fat is dense, such as the back and the flanks. VASER is well-suited for all areas of the body especially those resistant to diet and exercise. VASER allows for a much more precise targeting of fat pockets compared to traditional liposuction techniques. 

4. Laser-Assisted Liposuction (also known as SMART Liposuction) uses Laser technology at the tip of the cannula. The emitted laser beam, breaks down fat cells, coagulates the blood vessels and tightens the skin. This device is associated with minimal swelling, bruise and a faster recovery. It can be performed under local anaesthesia, intravenous sedation (also known as ‘twilight’ anaesthesia) or general anaesthesia. Based on the current literature, SMART liposuction does not appear to be superior or safer compared to other liposuction techniques. 

The surgeon will discuss with you all the liposuction options and theirs and cons of each option, and will  help you decide the option that will give you a result that matches your needs and expectations. and 

High-definition Liposuction (also known as ‘6-pack tummy’, ‘8-pack tummy’, high-definition abs)  is a specialised liposuction technique used to enhance the musculature of the torso and other parts of the body and create a ‘shredded’ and athletic look. It involves removing fat from certain body areas (3D liposuction) and/or adding the removed fat back to enhance certain muscle groups in the body (4D liposuction). 

By removing only the fat, while leaving all other tissues such as blood vessels and connecting tissues intact, your skin retains its smooth and even appearance after the surgery. The whole process is completed with small incisions that leave minimal, hidden scars after the surgery. 

High-definition liposuction can combine VASER with PAL or PAL with other skin-tightening devices such as Renuvion or BodyTite. Sometimes, it is possible to combine three devices such as VASER, PAL and Renuvion (or BodyTite) for a superior skin tightening result.

The whole procedure can take roughly 3 to 4 hours depending on the size and the number of the areas being treated. 

It is usually carried out with intravenous sedation or general anaesthesia.

Liposuction is suitable for both men and women and can treat just about all areas of the body including:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Upper, Middle, Lower Back
  • Inner Thighs
  • Outer Thighs
  • Buttocks 
  • Knees
  • Ankles 
  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Chest
  • Breasts

One of the most popular liposuction procedures is the 360-degree body contouring. It is a cosmetic procedure that helps contour, tone, lift and better shape the midsections of the body 360-degrees around. Usually, the areas treated include the upper and lower abdomen,, the flanks and the mid- and lower back.


It is considered a unique cosmetic procedure as it gives you the results that you desire.

Many people, both male and female, feel dissatisfied with their size and body shape. These negative feelings about their body sculpture can cause them unhappiness and insecurity, particularly if they cannot achieve the desired results after excessive efforts, such as following strict diet or intense exercise.

Liposuction is a short and highly effective procedure and the ideal option to achieve changes in the body sculpture.

One of the most important factors determining the suitability for a liposuction, is your BMI (BODY MASS INDEX) 

It can be the right solution for patients who are not overweight and only need sculpting in very specific areas. 

In Harley Elite Group, our goal is to make you feel good in your body. 

We will provide personalized solutions to your needs if the following are true for you:

  • You are aiming for sculpted delicate areas of the body, tighten skin and to add definition.
  • You are striving to remove excess fat deposits from targeted areas of your body.
  • You are realistic about the results of the surgery.
  • You are looking for long lasting results.

The recovery period is relatively small in contrast with other traditional liposuction methods. You will be able to return home within a few hours following the procedure. You may be required to wear a special compression garment for a few days.

We recommend that you wait 14 days before you begin again any rigorous physical activity. You need to stay hydrated, use the provided compression garment, a course of Lymphatic Drainage Massage therapy and follow a healthy diet.

You will have to visit the cosmetic clinic in 7 days to change dressing, remove stitches and ensure rapid and effective recovery.

Results can often be seen immediately, and the final results will become visible after a few weeks.

The price of such surgery is not standard, but it depends on various factors. It is different in every individual as it related to the quantity of fat we need to for the procedure as well as the number of the targeted areas. For instance, for one area standard-definition under local anesthetic starting price is £5,000.
