ID Liposuction


Unnecessary fat tissues under the skin can be destroyed by ID Liposuction! Here at ID, we do not only focus on removing large amount of fat, but also consider each individual’s body shape in order to create more balanced and proportional body. Liposuction is available for the arms and thighs as well as abdominal area.


Advantages of ID Liposuction


- Size reduction and body sculpture


Size reduction: Bleeding during the surgery is minimized by Water Jet liposuction. Thus, extra amount of fat can be effectively removed for the body size reduction.

Body sculpture: We aim to create most beautiful, but natural body line, considering each individual’s original body shape. Also, different Lipo machines and suction methods will be applied for each different area in order to make the optimal result.


-Minimized side effect


No bumpy skin surface: Skin bumpiness which is the one of most common side effect of liposuction is minimized since Water Jet is utilized, after separating fat layers from the skin tissues.

No skin sagging: ID hospital uses SAL suction method in order to prevent skin sagging by performing liposuction even just under the skin layer.


- Minimized scarring


Minimized incision: Only minimal incision will be made on not visible areas. ex) Arms : Deep inside armpit. Abdomen, thighs and love handles: Inside navel or tip of tailbone


- Minimized pain and quick recovery


Reduced pain: Water Jet liposuction effectively separates fat cells from the other tissues, using strong water-spray method. It gives patients less pain since the method causes no damages on nerves and blood vessels.

Quick recovery: Only fat cells will be cleanly removed by Water Jet liposuction. Bleeding will be minimized and you can go back to your daily life very quickly.


Steps of ID liposuction


  1. 3D ultrasound diagnosis

ID hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art 3D ultrasound diagnosis system to accurately examine the thickness of subcutaneous fat layers and conditions of fat tissues.


  1. Person-to-person consultation with professional surgeons

1:1 Consultation will give you huge difference on your body line. Our professional surgeons will advise you the best surgical plan based on their numerous clinical experiences.


  1. Water Jet + SAL

You’ll get quick recovery thanks to Water Jet which gives you reduced pain and minimal bleeding by separating blood vessels and nerves from fat cells using water-spray method.

SAL method creates slim body by suction of subcutaneous fat tissues. It moves regularly so that even and clean result can be achieved.

Medication (An appetite suppressant) is prescribed for the maximum result.



No more potbelly!

You might get big belly due to aging and they cannot be easily slimmed down

Mini liposuction may not create the satisfactory result if subcutaneous fat tissues exist all over your abdomen.

-Different body design applies for male and female patient

-We do not only make your tummy flat, but also create slim line through love handles.

-Slender waist is achieved in case of female and muscle lines are preserved in case of male.



Skinny long legs that you’ve been dreaming of!

Fat on thighs cannot be lost easily since the muscle is not being used often and not much circulation is required. The most important factor on thigh liposuction is creating better balance and slim leg lines, not only considering frontal, side and back view of thighs but also buttock and knee area.


- Creating beautiful line is important than only making thighs slimmer.

- While making inner and outer thighs lines flat, buttock to thigh line also become smooth and natural.

- Perform liposuction even just underneath buttock area to make your lower body looks slimmer and longer.

Inner arms also cannot become easily slimmed down because there are not much muscles and not much movement is required.

Skin is thin around arms and the procedure requires extra attention since many nerves and blood vessels exit near the skin.

-Flat line is achieved by performing careful suction of both inner and outer arms.

-Fat on armpit and around will be lost for the better balance of upper body
