We read about celebrities undergoing surgery all the time, and liposuction is one of the most common procedures; but what do we really know about it? Here’s a quick rundown on the ins and outs of liposuction, to ensure you’re equipped with the all-important details.
What is liposuction?
removes excess fat. It’s not a treatment to lose weight, and it can’t tackle any cellulite. Rather, it gets rid of the fat that’s so hard to budge through diet and exercise alone. You see, when you lose and gain weight, certain areas of your body will develop fatty cells; liposuction simply decreases those localised fat deposits, by utilising a variety of techniques.
What happens during the procedure?
Here at Secret Surgery we use VASER
, which not only gives you more precise results, but a quicker recovery time too. The treatment employs ultrasound technology to target your problem areas, and can often tighten the skin at the same time. It can take from one hour to several hours, depending on the treated area(s), and you’ll be provided with compression garments to allow your body to adjust. Typically three weeks without strenuous activity is recommended, and the results are immediately evident.
Who’s the best candidate for liposuction?
The younger the better; it’s not that the treatment isn’t suitable for older patients, but the skin’s elasticity will most certainly determine results. Bear in mind that liposuction
isn’t a quick fix, so realistic expectations are a must: you’ll notice a significant difference if you employ exercise and correct nutrition, because your physique is an extremely important factor. Diabetes, poor blood circulation and heart or lung disease can all cause complications, so liposuction is not recommended for those with such conditions.
What are the risks?
Bleeding, infection and even a reaction to the anaesthetic can all occur post-operatively. While the rate of complication is extremely low, you’re likely to encounter less glamorous side effects. The treated area can become discoloured underneath the skin, and you’ll experience a degree of numbness temporarily. You may also experience some contour irregularities such as wrinkling of the skin or small depressions, but while these after-effects are entirely possible, they are also treatable.

states “whatever your reason for having liposuction we are here to help you both medically and support and mentor you through the emotional side of body imperfections too”
First class service from start to finish! Right from the start Angela went out of her to help, answering many questions, putting me in touch with previous patients, and organising every aspect of my surgery holiday for me, which completely took the stress out of it for me.
From the moment I arrived in Poland, I was looked after by Aga, nothing was ever too much trouble for her. The nurses and hospital standards were really second to none, I can honestly say they exceeded my expectations. Dr W is amazing, from the initial consultation, he put my nerves at ease, was very honest about what could be achieved….
I am happy to say I am delighted with the results. I can’t speak highly enough of Angela or Dr W, In my opinion they are both the best in their field.
Helen – Blackpool
I highly recommend Secret Surgery, Angela has been absolutely fantastic and made the whole journey/experience an easy one to take, very informative and very soothing in those times of need. The surgeon in Poland and his assistant were second to none. I would definitely recommend secret surgery and may even consider more surgery in the future.
As summer nears, our thoughts naturally turn to the prospect of a sun-drenched holiday in a far-flung resort. From the moment you feel the warm, golden sand beneath your feet, you’ll want to do nothing more than to lie back and soak up the rays. Your holiday may be blissful and relaxing, but the odds are that the weeks leading up to it will be anything but. As well as planning your travel itinerary and arranging for a neighbour to house-sit the dog, there’ll be the small matter of getting your body into shape.
Most women – as well as a good number of men – agonise over how they’re going to look when they’re on the beach. Clad in only swimwear, legs and stomachs will be instantly exposed – revealing those imperfections we’re so desperate to hide.

Nicola Connolly – Regional Manager for Scotland says “With tummy tucks, arm & thigh lifts as well as liposuction all available, it’s never been easier to achieve the beach body you’ve always wanted.”

After only 13 months of trading, we are pleased to announce an exciting new achievement.Secret Surgery has just become only the second top-rated agency to be listed on internationally acclaimed website treatmentabroad.com.This, of course, is down to our valued customers in the UK, who have given us glowing reviews time and time again.
One such review came from Louisa in Yorkshire, who (after having various dialogue with other companies) decided to opt for a Secret Surgery package. She stated, ‘After having numerous one-on-ones with Angela Chouaib, all of my questions were answered.’On arriving in Poland, Louisa was pleased to see that ‘the first-class treatment didn’t falter for the whole trip.’ In fact, Louisa has now booked another procedure through Secret Surgery, and concludes, ‘I can truly say this has been nothing but a first class experience.’Angela, CEO of Secret Surgery, was always aware that many people considered surgery abroad to be somewhat of a grey area. She had been riddled with doubt herself before she decided to take the plunge, and set off to Poland for a tummy tuck. Once there, her doubts were quashed: so professional was the service, she returned some time later for a breast reduction and uplift.Thanks to her success in dispelling the myths associated with surgery abroad, Secret Surgery – and overseas procedures in general – are on the up. Dr. Geraldine McKeever, Medical Director of Stepback Cosmetic Medicine, sums up why Secret Surgery is advancing rapidly in this field:
‘Angela Chouaib…is first and foremost ethical and caring: two qualities which I as a Medical Doctor find essential in any surgical organisation. Secondly, the quality of her product, the surgery, is excellent. She has also sought to offer post-operative care. It’s just so rare and refreshing to see.’
