What is liposuction?
Liposuction or simply ‘lipo’, is a type of fat removal procedure. Stubborn fat deposits can be difficult to shift through exercise and diet alone. Some areas, such as the abdomen, love handles, outer or inner thighs, legs or arms, are more prone to storing these fatty deposits. Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures for contouring and re-shaping the body and can help you achieve a body shape that you are happy with.
Our experts in body contouring, skilfully sculpt, eliminate and remove your unwanted fat deposits in a single treatment. We treat all fatty areas, including upper and lower abdomen, calves, ankles, thighs, hips, legs, arms, knees, neck, jawline, male chests and backs. Multiple areas can be treated in one session and our expert body surgeons can talk you through the options available during a free of charge consultation.
Although liposuction can often provide very substantial improvements, it is not a weight-loss technique, or a solution for obesity. Ideally, any treatment should be viewed as a compliment to regular exercise and good diet, and not the replacement of a healthy lifestyle.
What results can I expect from liposuction?
A reduction in fat will be noticed immediately after liposuction, however you will experience some swelling which can last 1-2 weeks. The results of your procedure will gradually start to show as the swelling reduces and after 3-4 months most patients are able to appreciate the final results.
“After 12 years I am finally able to wear a bikini”
After having my four children my body changed dramatically. I had thought about surgery for years and decided to go for a mummy makeover with Pall Mall. After 12 years I am finally able to wear a bikini and take my children swimming without feeling self conscious. My whole wardrobe has adapted, and I can finally go shopping with confidence!

What happens during
From your first call or email, we’re here to look after you. Whether you're still researching about liposuction and would like more information, or you're ready to meet a surgeon to see what results you can achieve, our team of patient co-ordinators are here to help.
During the consultation with your surgeon, you will hold a discussion on which areas concern you as well as the what sort of re-shape you'd like the doctor to create during the operation.
This appointment will last between 20-45 minutes and is the perfect opportunity for you to ask questions about post-surgery, aftercare or risks.
The pre-op assessment is vital to your Liposuction treatment and has a few different parts. From a medical perspective, the nurse or surgeon will examine your overall health to assess whether you are suitable for the surgery. This will come in the form of an MRSA test, for example, or even some blood or urine tests.
Your body will also be photographed for medical purposes but also so we can compare in post-surgery the difference between the 'Before' and 'After'.
The nurse will then be able to inform you about how best to prepare for the surgery in the days leading up to it and what to expect at our private hospital. The team can then address any questions so you have all the information you need.
You can expect a friendly atmosphere as you arrive at our private hospital in Newton-le-Willows. Your room will have an en-suite and is extremely comfortable meaning you can have relax before the surgeon arrives to run your through the surgery, the timeline and the aftercare you can expect at the hospital.
A quick check on your health will be taken and there will be a final form to sign for consent. At this point, you will head into surgery and have a general anaesthetic to sedate you before the one to three-hour operation takes place. The timing of the op depends on the agreed amount of fat that will be removed.
1, 2 and 6 weeks after surgery you will be invited back to the clinic for some check-ups. The nurse and surgeon will study your progress to make sure you're on track and take some pictures to demonstrate the changes in your body.
Once these mandatory clinic appointments have finished you may worry that you want to be able to reach out to Pall Mall, but this will not be the case! You can get reassurance by using the 24/7 direct contact line with our nurse or you can book more appointments with your surgeon. Our aim is to make sure you have a great and long-lasting experience, so we are here to help.
