Shape up your body with Liposuction Surgery

This method of surgery is mainly used for the removal of fat from the body. Liposuction is mainly used as a cosmetic procedure. It is misunderstood as a weight loss procedure. It cannot eliminate stretch marks and cellulite from the skin. The treatment can remove small, localized concentrations of fat with the help of a small tube called cannula. 

India has witnessed an explosion in the number of people traveling from other countries for quality surgery at an affordable price. TLC Clinique aims at providing evidence-based treatment for liposuction surgery in Trivandrum at an affordable price. This institution is one of the leading providers of liposuction and plastic surgery procedures in Trivandrum, Kerala. Dr. Anoop G Mohan is the pioneer in the treatment of liposuction, hair restoration, and tummy tucks. TLC Clinique is one of the best institutions that is devoted to the aesthetic treatments.


Before undergoing liposuction treatment the candidacy must first be determined. The best candidates is someone who is in excellent health, is within 25 pounds of his or her ideal body weight. Another criterion is those who are above the age of 18 with necessary health conditions are great candidates.

Some facts about liposuction:

In rare cases, a doctor may perform liposuction on a teen; the doctor will assess a teenager’s emotional maturity and self-esteem before agreeing to perform liposuction. Liposuction gives best results in young people as the elasticity of the skin is less in younger people.

Liposuction Techniques

There are several different techniques available for liposuction. The doctor will suggest the suitable procedure. There are two main types of liposuction available. They are manual liposuction and laser liposuction.

Traditional Liposuction:

In this procedure, the physician removes fat with the help of a tube called cannula which is connected to the powerful suction pump. After inserting the cannula through a small incision, in the skin, the fat is suctioned through the tiny cuts in the skin.

Tumescent liposuction: During this procedure, the physician will inject a special solution into the treatment area in order to swell the fat and hence the removal is easy.

Super - wet liposuction: This procedure is similar to tumescent liposuction. The volume of injected solution is less compared to tumescent liposuction. 

Ultrasonic liposuction: This is a commonly used method in which ultrasounds emitting waves emitting cannulas are used to liquefy the fat deposits. This technology can remove larger and denser fats.

Lipo Selection: This specialized method emulsifies the fat with ultrasounds and then breaks it up. The surrounding blood vessels, nerves, and other tissues are unaffected by this procedure.

Power Assisted Liposuction: This procedure uses a cannula with a vibrating tip which breaks up the fat cells for easier removal. 

Laser Liposuction:

This procedure can loosen fat cells and make them easier to remove. They are costlier than traditional liposuction but recovery is faster. Laser liposuction includes:-

Cool lipo: This procedure tightens the skin with minimal bruising and utilizes only local anesthetic. This is used to treat areas like necks, jowls, arms and underneath the chin. 

Slim Lipo: This procedure melts the fat cells before they are removed and is more comfortable.

Smart Lipo: This involves minimal scarring and is used for fine tuning, removing only up to eight pounds of fat at a time. Recovery is also faster.

Major Benefits of Liposuction

  • Improved health
  • Improved appearance
  • Fat removal

After the Procedure

The treated area will be covered with bandages; antibiotics and painkillers are prescribed. Compression garments have to wear for three to four weeks. The patient can return to normal activities after a few days.

Have you ever thought of getting a Hair Transplantation? If yes, Read This.

Hair transplant surgery involves the moving of scalp hair and hair follicles from an area which has dense hair to an area with thinning hair or baldness. This technique gives a natural look on the forehead and on the top of the head.

What is FUE?

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a type of hair transplant surgery which involves the removal of individual hair follicles from a donor part of the body, usually the sides and back of the head.
These individual follicles are then implanted in the areas that are affected. Typically, with the men suffering from male pattern baldness this will be the classic horseshoe area.

How does FUE work?

During the process, individual follicles – typically between 1 and 4 hairs – are removed under local anesthesia. The extraction procedure utilizes a micro surgical extraction instrument, between 0.6mm and 1.0mm in diameter, to remove the follicles.

The surgeon will make use of specialist micro surgical needles to puncture the scalp area which is to receive the grafts. The surgeons will be experts at blending the hair in, inserting the grafts at an angle and density that matches the original hair, so it will resemble a natural and realistic hair pattern.

What is FUT?

Follicular unit transplant (FUT) is one of the traditional hair transplant methods in which a linear strip of hair bearing the skin from the side of the scalp is extracted. The strip will then be dissected into separate individual grafts.

How does FUT Work?

This process involves the removal of a small strip of tissue from the back of the head, from which the donor hair follicles will be extracted. The hair follicles are then harvested from that strip by a skilled team of surgeons before being individually transplanted to the recipient areas. FUT is comparatively better than FUE because it allows for the greatest number of grafts to be transplanted in a single session.

   If you are looking for a hair transplant in Kerala, then TLC CLINIQUE is the best place. It is a renowned clinic for cosmetic and plastic surgeries, especially for hair transplantation in Kollam.

Get Rid of Excess Fat with Liposuction

Liposuction which is also known as liposculpture, lipoplasty, lipo, or lipectomy is a kind of plastic or cosmetic surgery that breaks, sucks and remove extra fat from the body parts. The most common area used for liposuction are abdomen, thighs, chin, neck, upper and backs of the arms, buttocks, back, and calves. The extra fat in the body is removed by a hollow instrument, a cannula by inserting it under the skin. A powerful, high-pressure vacuum is put on the cannula for effective working. Liposuction is normally operated with the use of general anesthesia.  It is purely a cosmetic surgery which is not meant for a weight loss or obesity and its effects are subtle.

Liposuction is highly used for improving a person appearance and recommended only if a person did not achieve the desired results with strict diet, proper lifestyle and exercise. Liposuction reduces the percentage of fat cells in the isolated parts. It is good to discuss all the pros and cons of the liposuction with the doctor before deciding to operate as results are subtle.

  • You have excess localised fat deposits that do not respond to exercise and diet control.

Look Beautiful With The Help Of Cosmetic Surgery

Flawless perfection in beauty is often overrated. Every individual is unique in their own way. There are small imperfections in everyone. In some they are easily visible, in some they are not. You might have slightly lopsided ears or eyebrows, a torn or slightly wide earlobe, an ugly belly button and so on, that affects your confidence.

You do not have to worry about them anymore. The cosmetic surgery options available today are well equipped to deal with all these issues, that too with outstanding results. Some of the common cosmetic surgery procedures widely used today include earlobe surgery, otoplasty, umbilicoplasty and so on. They are discussed in detail here: -

Ear lobe surgery

Most girls are fans of gaudy long earrings, but constant use leads to drooping ear lobes with wide holes. Though some people enlarge their ear lobe holes intentionally with fashion trends like gauging, most do not find them attractive. Accidents, injuries or trauma can also result in ear lobe irregularities.
Ear lobe surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is done to correct these irregularities, in such a way that they go back to their previous state and the irregularities are no longer visible. 


Ear surgery or otoplasty is done to correct position, shape and size of the ear. Otoplasty is usually done on those who have overly large or protruding ears in varying degrees at both sides. With the help of ear surgery, the ears can be made into an apt shape and size that is in proportion to the patient’s face.


Umbilicoplasty is more commonly called belly button surgery. It is a branch of cosmetic surgery that is done to beautify the appearance of navel or belly button. With latest trends in fashion, umbilicoplasty has gained a great deal of popularity.

Umbilicoplasty is also done in conjunction with tummy tuck or hernia repair surgery. Belly button surgery is done to achieve a small and vertical shaped belly button. 

With advanced, world class infrastructure and treatment options, TLC Clinique offers cosmetic and hair restoration treatment procedures customised to suit the needs of the patient.
