Fat can “settle” in certain parts of the body. Women gain fat mostly in the stomach, buttocks, hips & thighs. Men can gain fat in the belly, chest & waist. Till very recently, conventional Suction Assisted Liposplasty (SAL) & Ultrasonic Assisted Liposplasty (UAL) were the limited choices available to help you lose inches.

3D-Liposuction, a revolutionary new technique for fat reduction, has been introduced by Dr. Viral Desai.


SAL & UAL are similar in concept to deflating a balloon. Fat is suctioned to reduce the overall volume of the area. Because they both work in the deeper layers, SAL & UAL are unable to simulate the delicate curves of the buttocks, hips & outer thigh. 3D-Liposuction (3D-SLS) is liposuction of fat in the superficial and intermediate layers. It is associated with a more contoured look and greater skin retraction.

How is 3D-SLS different from Traditional Liposuction?

Conventional SAL & UAL remove fat only from the deeper layers. If the superficial fat remains, the outer layer is heavier and may fall after deep suctioning, forming rolls & bumps. 3D-SLS removes fat in the superficial as well as intermediate layers to better sculpt the body contour. A 3D-SLS along with a Mini-Tuck and muscle contouring can help both males & females achieve the “six-pack abdomen” look.

Why is it called 3D-SLS?

3D-SLS removes fat in all layers (in all three dimensions) and allows delicate contouring of the body, not just a simple reduction in volume. It also means that you will look good in and out of clothes.

Can 3D-SLS be perfomed in other parts of the body?

Yes, the concepts of 3D-SLS apply to most parts of the body such as thighs, upper arms & flanks.

Is 3D-SLS gentler than traditional SAL & UAL?

3D-SLS is performed with smaller cannulas (suction tubes) so that there may be less bruising and bleeding. Unlike in UAL, there is no heat generated at the end of the cannula. So, 3D-SLS can be performed close to the skin without risk of a skin burn.

What are the advantages of 3D-SLS?

With 3D-SLS, the skin contracts and tightens post-surgery. In SAL and UAL, loose skin may be worse after surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Liposuction?

The concept of liposuction is surprisingly simple. Liposuction is a surgical technique that improves the body’s contour by removing excess fat deposits located between the skin and muscle.

What is Tumescent Liposuction?

Tumescent liposuction designates a form of liposuction that uses tumescent local anesthesia. The tumescent technique for liposuction totally by local anesthesia has eliminated the greatest dangers associatedThe word tumescent refers to anything that is swollen and firm. In the tumescent technique for liposuction, a large volume of very dilute solution of local anesthesia (lidocaine and epinephrine) is injected into the fat beneath the skin, causing the targeted area to become tumescent. The local anesthetic lidocaine in the tumescent solution provides such complete local anesthesia, that it eliminates the need for general anesthesia, or IV sedation. The drug epinephrine (adrenalin) provides profound localized vasoconstriction that it virtually eliminates surgical bleeding during tumescent liposuction. By eliminating the risks of general anesthesia and the risks of excessive surgical bleeding, the tumescent technique for liposuction has eliminated the greatest dangers associated with the older forms of liposuction. with the older forms of liposuction.

What are Elastic Compression Garments?

Elastic compression garments (specially designed girdles) post liposuction are beneficial for the patient
1) Minimizes swelling and reduces pain
2) Improves blood circulation
3) Speeds up healing process
4) Maintains the elasticity of the skin. Most surgeons require that patients wear an elastic compression garment for a certain length of time after liposuction.

What is the Cost of Liposuction?

The cost of liposuction usually depends on many factors like which part of the body is treated, any other areas of the body or the body type. When only one area is treated by liposuction the fee is less than when multiple areas are treated.

Am I A Good Candidate for Liposuction Surgery?

A good candidate for liposuction is any person who has realistic expectations and is in good health.

What Are The Realistic Expectations Which I Can Have From My Liposuction Surgery?

After liposuction, the new body’s shape is more or less permanent. If a patient does gain a moderate amount of weight after liposuction, then the figure will simply be a larger version of the new body shape. Fat cells that are removed by liposuction do not grow back.

Which Areas Can Be Treated By Liposuction?

The most frequently treated areas for women are the abdomen, breasts, hips, outer thighs, anterior thighs, inner thighs, knees, arms, buttocks, cheeks and neck. In men, who comprise about 15% to 25% of liposuction patients, the most commonly treated areas include the chin and neck area, abdomen, flanks (“love-handles”), and breasts.

What kind of Qualifications should a Liposuction Surgeon have?

Liposuction is most commonly performed by surgeons who have acquired special training in the techniques of liposuction. Surgeons who perform liposuction or other cosmetic surgeries are called “cosmetic surgeons.”

What are the Complications and Risks of Liposuction Surgery?

The most dangerous aspect of liposuction is an attitude that ignores the risk of doing too much liposuction on a single day, or disregards the risks of doing multiple unrelated surgical procedures on the same day that liposuction surgery is performed. As judged by current worldwide experience, liposuction is amazingly safe. Rare problems that can potentially occur with any surgical procedure include infections, bleeding, skin ulcerations, and nerve injury.

What Questions Should I Ask before Choosing A Liposuction Surgeon?

Decisions about liposuction should not be based solely on the cost of liposuction. The cheapest procedure might mean that the surgeon does the procedure quickly and incompletely. You should feel free to ask any question you have about liposuction. In fact, it is the patient’s responsibility to make sure that all important questions have been asked and answered before making any final decisions about having liposuction.

What are the Important Characteristics of a Safe Surgical Facility?

Liposuction can be performed in a doctor’s office, in an outpatient surgery center, or in a hospital. A safe surgical facility for liposuction must be able to minimize the risks of surgical infections. Surgeries should be done in operating rooms that maintain high standards of cleanliness.

What is the safest form of liposuction? What is a liposuction cannula?

Tumescent liposuction with local anesthesia is the safest form of liposuction. Liposuction using general anesthesia or heavy IV sedation is somewhat less safe than liposuction totally by local anesthesia. Microcannulas permit smoother results after liposuction. A liposuction cannula is a small stainless steel tube that is inserted through an incision in the skin and removes subcutaneous fat.

How long is the Liposuction Surgery Post-Op and Recovery time?

When liposuction is done totally by local anaesthesia, patients can usually depart from the surgical facility within 30 minutes of the completion of surgery. When general anaesthesia is employed, then patients usually require one to three hours of post-anaesthesia observation before being discharged home. Most patients can return to a desk-type job with two days after tumescent liposuction. Because of the significant decrease in swelling, inflammation and pain after tumescent liposuction, patients are able to return to normal physical activities very soon.

Is there Pain or Discomfort after Liposuction Surgery?

During the two days immediately after liposuction, the amount of pain experienced depends on the type of anesthesia used for liposuction. Soreness is usually the most intense 2 to 4 days after liposuction and then decreases steadily. The tenderness and soreness typically is quite bothersome for up to 4 weeks, but gradually subsides over the following next 4 to 8 weeks.

How does Liposuction Affect the Appearance of the Skin? Does Liposuction Produce Visible Scars?

The appearance of skin after liposuction depends on the skin’s elasticity. Skin with good elasticity should look smooth and natural after liposuction. Scars are not a common problem with modern liposuction which uses very small cannulas (microcannulas) and thus only very small incisions are required.
