From fat reduction to excess skin removal, at The Private Clinic they pride themselves on being experts in the realm of body shaping treatments. At their clinics across the UK they are able to offer a full range of treatments to give patients a more personalised treatment plan that will suit them, their lifestyle and desired goals.

When it comes to body shaping treatments there are a lot of different options depending on the results that you may aspire to.

For fat reduction, The Private Clinic offers the following treatments:

Surgical Liposuction

Surgical liposuction, liposculpting or traditional liposuction as it is often referred to, is a cosmetic surgery procedure aimed at reducing areas of stubborn fat. The procedure is usually carried out under general anaesthetic and can often be combined with other surgical procedures such as a tummy tuck (Brazilian Tummy Tuck), arm or thigh lift.








Vaser Lipo

Vaser liposuction is a liposuction procedure that can be performed in-clinic, under local anaesthetic with sedation and allows patients to return home on the same day.  The procedure involves using ultrasound energy to liquefy the fat cells before they are removed from the body. The Private Clinic’s Doctors have performed over 7,000 VASER Liposuction treatments to date, more than any other clinic in Europe and were the first clinic to launch Vaser in the UK.


CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to target and destroy only the fat cells being targeted. Treatment times are from as little as 30 minutes and downtime is minimal. Although the results are gradual; it aims to give patients natural looking results within 8-12 weeks.







MicroLipo is when a much smaller cannula is used to perform the liposuction procedure. Using a smaller cannula often results in reduced downtime and quicker results.













For fat reduction and body contouring, The Private Clinic offers:

Vaser Hi-Def

Vaser Hi-Def is a specialist vaser liposuction technique that not only removes excess fat but works to help sculpt and define muscles to give a more athletic appearance. The procedure is suitable for most areas of the body but is most commonly performed on the chest and abdomen.








Vaser 360

Vaser 360 is a combination vaser liposuction treatment designed to target the lower buttocks, upper legs, thighs and knees for all round leg contouring to help patients achieve shapelier and toned legs.

Vaser 4D

Vaser 4D is a more advanced vaser liposuction technique that carefully removes fat whilst defining your underlying muscles, which can significantly improve your overall proportion and natural body contours.

And for excess skin, The Private Clinic offers:


An abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a plastic surgery procedure that involves removing excess skin from the abdomen and can also include a muscle repair too. Weight loss, Pregnancy and the natural ageing process can sometimes cause sagging skin around the stomach area which can be difficult to tone up through exercise. In cases like this, surgery is often the only way to remove this. 






Brazillian Abdominoplasty

A Brazilian abdominoplasty is a variation on a standard abdominoplasty where liposuction is incorporated into the procedure to remove excess fat from the tummy, flanks and waist to give a more sculpted appearance to the abdomen.
