Getting rid of unwanted body fat – Liposuction vs. Non-Surgical Fat Reduction

At Aesthetics International in Dubai, we offer both liposuction and a range of non-invasive fat reduction procedures, carried out by our internationally accredited expert surgeons, doctors and therapists.

We know that opting for a fat reduction procedure can be daunting, especially with the number of clinics, and even salons in Dubai, offering an endless range of fat-busting treatments and procedures. So how do you know which to choose? Which is best for your body type? We’re here to give you the lowdown on liposuction and the non-invasive procedures we offer, and to help you make an informed choice of which one might benefit you the most.

Shifting stubborn fat

Many of us have little qualms about certain parts of our bodies – that stubborn muffin top, wobbly thighs, or that pesky upper arm area – and it’s frustrating when your dedicated healthy diet and committed exercise regime just doesn’t seem to be doing the trick.It’s becoming more ‘the norm’ now to turn to liposuction or ‘body contouring’ procedures to achieve the body shape you aspire to.
At Aesthetics International, Dr. Jaffer Khan leads the highly experienced aesthetic surgery team in providing expert, consistent surgery procedures, including liposuction. Our body contouring specialists have years of experience, are well informed of the latest non-invasive techniques to consult and advise on the best procedure for our clients.

Why choose liposuction?

Liposuction, (or lipoplasty, liposculpture, as it is also known by), is a surgical procedure which as the name suggests uses suction as a method to break up and remove unwanted fat deposits from the body via a specialised cannula.

It’s great for individuals who want more dramatic fat reduction results, (compared to non-invasive techniques), and is widely used effectively on problem areas including the tummy, ‘love handles’, arms and legs, buttocks, as well as the more delicate facial and neck areas. (Every patient is a unique individual and every surgery has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. Individual results vary from patient to patient.)

What are the pros and cons of liposuction?

Our expert consultants will explain the pros and cons of liposuction to help you make an informed choice:


  • More dramatic results in comparison to non-invasive or body contouring procedures
  • Permanent to long-lasting results
  • Effective at targeting several problem areas in one procedure
  • Effective in reducing larger areas of unwanted fat.


  • Cost – higher one-off cost than non-invasive procedures
  • Health implications – while liposuction is a trusted and widely practiced procedure, there is a small risk of health implications in comparison to non-invasive techniques
  • General anaesthetic is commonly required
  • It can be painful post-surgery, with the probability of some swelling and bruising of the treated area
  • Compression garments and some rest & recuperation time are required for the days following the procedure.Read more about what to expect when choosing Aesthetics International for your liposuction treatment here.

What are my options for non-invasive fat reduction?

Our Body Contouring department at Aesthetics International offers a range of the latest nonsurgical treatments and procedures to ‘reshape’ your body through targeting problem areas and eliminating fat cells. Our aesthetic therapists will advise and guide you in choosing the best treatment for the body shape you aspire to. We offer the following non-invasive treatments:

Ideal for individuals who have attained their target weight or shape, but just need a little help in shifting localised, stubborn areas, especially on the hips, thighs and tummy. CoolSculpting basically freezes the fat cells, rendering them inactive, then the body does the rest – flushing out the dead cells a couple of weeks after the treatment. Results can be impressive, and even better – they’re permanent. (Every patient is a unique individual and every surgery has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. Individual results vary from patient to patient.)

VelaShape 3
VelaShape is has the advantage of targeting both excess body fat, and cellulite, shaping and toning the body using vacuum technology to ‘prep’ the skin for a combination of infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency energies to work their magic. The benefits are quick treatment with no recovery time – and it’s like a 30-minute deep tissue massage. (Every patient is a unique individual and every surgery has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. Individual results vary from patient to patient.)

Mesotherapy works quite differently from other nonsurgical fat reduction options in that utilises a blend of natural extracts, homeopathic agents and vitamins, which is injected into problem areas to ‘melt’ body fat. The liquefied fat is then naturally processed as a waste by-product by the body. Mesotherapy has the added benefit of smoothing the skin’s appearance as well as reducing cellulite. (Every patient is a unique individual and every surgery has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. Individual results vary from patient to patient.)

What are the pros & cons of non-invasive treatments?

• Minimal pain, bruising or swelling
• Quick treatment time
• No incisions, stitches or anaesthesia
• No recovery period needed
• Ideal for smaller, stubborn areas

• Multiple sessions may be required
• Results are not as dramatic as liposuction
• Results may take time to become noticeable

It’s important to note that liposuction and the non-invasive fat reduction procedures are not treatments for obesity, and they are not weight loss solutions. These procedures are purely for cosmetic results, helping you achieve a body shape you aspire to by targeting and eliminating fat cells in problem areas.

At Aesthetics International, we’re here to offer advice and consultation if you are considering undergoing fat reduction treatment, ensuring you choose the best option for you.
