In Dr Birch’s hands, liposuction is used as a contouring procedure. Not a weight loss procedure. It can be very effective in sculpting parts of the body that concern a patient. It can be used to reduce problem areas or used in a similar manner to transfer fat from one place to another such as in a “Brazilian butt lift’. Dr Birch performs this procedure in an operating room under a general anaesthetic so as to perform the procedure safely and to maximise the desired result.
