Liposuction patient testimonials

Our liposuction and tummy tuck patients have provided us with the following testimonials. See our Facebook page for more feedback.







"I wanted to shape my body by liposuction particularly the fat deposits on my tummy and flanks which I could not shift with exercise and diet control. Hence, I saw my friends who had liposuction in the past. They achieved only little improvement after multiple liposuctions. So I felt the need to seek advice from my friends experienced in cosmetic surgery field in order to find the best consultant.

It was clear to me after my first consultation with Mr. Shailesh Vadodaria that I would trust my body into hands of Mr. Shailesh Vaodaria for liposuction of abdomen and flanks. He liposucked 3 litres of fat from my tummy as well as flanks in the month of June, 08.

I confirmed that my dress size (bottom) has gone down from 14 to 10 within 6 weeks following liposuction. My circumference of the tummy and flank region was measured before and 6 weeks after the liposuction. It was came down by 11 cms (Average) following the procedure.

Change in circumference of my tummy: 

  Post Operation 6 Weeks After Operation Difference
Upper Abdomen 84 cm 74 cm 10 cm
Lower Abdomen 86 cm 78 cm 8cm
Flanks 100 cm 85 cm 15 cm


Mr Vadodaria not only the best for his clinical expertise but also for his ethics and professionalism. He is truly a remarkable consultant plastic surgeon.

"I was looking for a professional and reliable private clinic for my liposuction, and I was recommended from a friend to visit the West London Clinic. There I met my surgeon Mr. Vadodaria.

I felt very comfortable with him from the first time, and we discussed the different options available. In the past I had a breast augmentation overseas, but I was not satisfied with the results. This was also brought up with Mr. Vadodaria and we eventually agreed for me to have both procedures done at the same time.

After the operation I was very happy with the results. My thighs are as I wanted, and my breasts are also exactly as I had hoped. I would like to thank Mr Vadodaria for his professionalism and for all the time he spent with me deciding what my best choice was." - SD



"Dear Mr. Vadodaria,

First of all thank you for taking such good care of me in your kind and professional manner.

My experience is this. From my first consultation at the West London Clinic you were extremely thorough and professional both in the examination and explanation of the surgery.

We discussed my expectations and I was confident throughout of a successful outcome, even as you explained I was one of your eldest patients assuring me you would not perform the surgery if you were not confident. The consultation was not rushed at any time which is important and reassuring.

My operation was performed at a day patient and I felt relaxed from the minute I arrived. I met my anaesthetist and Mr. Vadodaria prior to surgery and all aspect of the surgery was explained. Both during and after surgery I felt no pain and was constantly reassured throughout. I was able to go home after a rest and a snack. During the next few days I rested and walked as exercise, which was recommended.

I noticed results immediately and after approximately a week felt elated with the results. I am delighted with my surgery and my choice of surgeon.

Every day I see an improvement. Thank you so much." - PJ



"Dear Mr Vadodaria,

Well its a year since my full body lift that you carried out on myself on June 22nd, 2009. And this card is just to say a very big Thank You for changing my life as I have a lot more confidence and I am a lot more outgoing in my life. And then in January 2010 you carried out two other operations on myself – my inner thighs and my chest, which are all healed really well.

I am so sorry for missing you as the times that the appointment came out I was unable to come to see you. I really did want to see you so you could have seen your lovely work that you did as well.

Once again I really want to thank you again from the bottom of my heart." - SP



"From the age of 16 I have had cellulite. And, being only a size 8, proved that it has nothing to do with being overweight. The older I got, the more any weight I happened to gain, went straight to my hips and thighs.

I was a highly competitive martial artist for 10 years, competing for Britain in the World Championships. No matter how hard I trained, my shape never changed. I would gain or lose weight all over, so basically my dimensions always stayed the same. I simply couldn’t shift the majority of the weight from my lower half. I was a size 8/10 on top and a 12 on bottom ‘ impossible clothing size.

Then came the saddles bags. These started around the age of 25 and again, I am relatively slim with a small frame all over, but the thighs and bottom were always the focal point and I was obsessed with looking at my bum in the mirror.

It never caused me anguish as such, in fact, my bum actually garnered a nickname from friends and family as ‘the mothership’ (long story) ‘.. but that’s how it was known.

I had been thinking about liposuction for years, well actually since my very early 20′s as a friend of mine had it done. Her measurements were even more extreme being a size 6 on top and a 14 on the bottom!!!! I went through the whole process with her so I had a fairly good understanding of the entire, procedure and recovery time.

The final decision to go ahead with it came this year (March 2010) in which the photographs from a girl’s holiday to the South Pacific Islands spurred me into action. My legs simply looked enormous. This was accentuated by the fact that I have a small waist (maybe 27 inches). There is a difference between ‘curvy’ and ‘disproportioned’. I most definitely did not want to lose my curves, but something had to be done.

I decided to investigate the procedure and had been recommended to Mr Vadodaria and his practice. I went to the initial consultation with my sister (who was completely sceptical and not happy about my decision to do this), but after a thorough consultation, every question and concern that we both had were acknowledged, and a complete confidence that Mr Vadodaria and his team inspired in us, I decided to go ahead.

I had done a lot of reading regarding this procedure to try to be as informed as possible. This only strengthened my relationship with my surgeon. I did not have unrealistic views of the procedure or the recovery time and the part I would need to play to optimise the results.

My biggest fear of all was going under General Anaesthetic. Aside from the fact it makes me incredibly sick for days, the mere thought terrifies me. So it was to my delight to find out the operation would take place under ‘twilight sedation and localised anaesthetic’.

On the day of my surgery, my sister was frantic with worry but I simply couldn’t wait. I felt I had been given such personal treatment, time, patience and understanding from the surgical team and the nurses had treated me with such a closeness, that I couldn’t possibly find anything to worry about.

When I finally came round after the surgery, I was drowsy for about 40 mins, then I was completely awake and alert. My sister could not believe it when I was wheeled back into my private recovery room. I spent the next 6 hours resting and being attended to by my dedicated nurse; I felt amazing. More than anything though, was my complete surprise as to how the twilight sedation had worked. I was not sick at all, in fact, aside from the soreness in my legs, I didn’t actually feel that I’d been under ‘ I felt fantastic!

I went home that evening and my sister had been advised by the nurse on how to tend to my dressings etc and what to expect over the next few days. I was telephoned to make sure I was ok and text messages were also sent to me. The service and care were impeccable.

I am now 2.5 weeks after my surgery and have had 2 follow up consultations with Mr Vadodaria. I have been taking the arnica to help with the bruising (which has almost gone) and all that remains is some soreness and the swelling (which the pressure garment is taking care of). I have changed my diet also, not to extremes, but just to make some better choices and have been keeping as mobile as possible and walking regularly to help the recovery process.

My measurements so far have been quite something, and I can’t stop looking in the mirror! Knowing these are the results from under 3 weeks, I know there is yet better to come ‘ but I know I still need to do my part to achieve this which is to make better food choices and keep mobile. I am never going to be an exercise freak, but I invested in a treadmill and am trying to walk 5km a day in around 45 mins when I get home from work.

Whilst this is an expensive procedure that affects every aspect of your life for a while, it is a decision and a change for the better that I simply do not regret in any way, shape or form. It has given me a shape that has boosted my confidence and inspired the drive in me to work at keeping.

Thank you." - LO



"I’d always felt at war with my pear shaped body – battling to keep the size of my saddlebags under control. Even with a healthy diet and at least 5 gym sessions a week I still couldn't shift stubborn fat deposits around my bum and thighs. I was the fittest person in the gym, but I didn't have the confidence to train without a sweat top tied around my waist to help disguise my problem.

It was a shopping trip with a girl friend that finally led me into taking some action. After trying on at least 30 pairs of jeans and coming home empty handed, depressed and in tears, I had an emotional discussion with my husband about the possibility of surgery. After weeks of research, I was finally standing in the consultation room with Consultant Plastic Surgeon Mr Vadadoria, a nurse and my husband – all scrutinizing my naked lower extremities. It was horrendously embarrassing but at the same time liberating and exciting to be able to talk about the possibility of getting help. I was thrilled to hear that being fit, toned and at my correct body weight meant that I was an ideal candidate for liposuction and I could expect good results if I went ahead with surgery. Having to wear a pressure garment (a crotch less monstrosity) day and night for 8 weeks after the operation was daunting, but on the plus side I was told that there was no restriction on activity and I could even go to the gym as normal afterwards. After the consultation I decided to have 4 areas treated – inner and outer thighs, buttocks and flanks.

I don’t think anyone could have been more nervous on the day of the surgery than me. The only thing that kept me from bolting was the knowledge that I either accept my body or go through with it. I guess the worse bit pre-surgery was the humiliation of being washed down with vile smelling orange solution in the operating theater – surrounded by the theater team. However, everyone was so nice and understanding that it’s bearable – and you realise that it’s standard stuff and they’ve seen it all before. The liposuction was done under local anesthetic with sedation. Like most people I would rather have been knocked out with a sledge hammer but I can see now why it’s better to do it this way as its easier for the surgeon to move you around and get a good result. I was fairly relaxed during the procedure (just very emotional) and although I was in surgery for 3 hours the time flew. Afterwards I was extremely cold and wet (from the Tumenescent fluid used) and a little sore. I had to stay in the clinic overnight and I am very glad I did as the incision sites leaked quite a lot – this is normal but it can be very unnerving and messy and I felt a little light headed.

The following day I can remember the nurse saying to me that over the next few weeks I would have my ups and my downs – and how right she was! The first couple of days were ok – you know you are going to be a bit sore and leaky but it’s a relief when its not too bad and you are managing to get out and about. It wasn’t until day 3 after the op that the swelling really kicked in. My legs were like sausages and the garment was really tight and uncomfortable. I can remember feeling quite sorry for myself at this point – you can’t really see the results and you have to keep the faith that it’s normal. I still persevered with walking and keeping as active as possible. I also avoided alcohol, too much salt and caffeine to try and give my body a chance to beat the bloat. Although most of the incision sites stop leaking after 48 hours I had one incision site that kept leaking badly for a good week or so. I am so glad that I brought a second pressure garment as it made life a lot easier (you have to hand wash them and they take a while to dry). I was also very glad to have the support of my husband – it would have been a lot harder without him helping out.

I took Arnica religiously before and after the operation to minimise bruising and I am sure this made a difference because I was expecting the bruising to be a lot worse than it was. I also took Bromelain to help minimise swelling – whether it helped or not is hard to tell but at least I felt like I was doing something positive to aid my body’s recovery.

On day 10 I made it back into the gym. Wearing the garment felt like I was exercising in a wet suit but to my astonishment I managed a decent workout. High impact activity caused discomfort so I avoided running and used the x-trainer, bike and free-weights instead. I started to feel like I was getting back to a normal routine which was a real boost. After exercise the swelling would worsen slightly but this temporary side effect was worth it as the benefits of exercise far outweighed the negatives (I would avoid weight gain, maintain muscle tone and get a better final result).

Two weeks after the operation I could massage the treated areas with a Scholl shiatsu massager (available from Boots). I found this really helped with the swelling and evening out the lumps and bumps. I also started to use Bio Oil on the incision sites to help minimise scaring.

Wearing the pressure garment day and night started to get me down a bit (it’s not the most attractive thing in the world!) so I decided to do some research into alternatives and ordered a Marina stage 2 liposuction garment on the internet (most cosmetic surgery products are sourced from the US so ordering online was the only option). It cost about £70 but it really made a big difference as I found it to be more discreet under clothes, lighter and more comfortable. I wore the new garment during the day (from week two post op) and my original garments at night and in the gym.

During the first month or so of recovery I found it easier and more comfortable to wear long skirts, dresses and loose clothing. Although I could see a difference in my contour I was still too swollen to fit into jeans and tight clothing and the garment made it difficult to wear anything too tight or revealing. Although it takes six months for you to see your final result, I was told that most people start to see their new shape six weeks after liposuction as the worst of the swelling subsides. It was almost six weeks to the day when I saw some jeans in a shop window and decided to try them on. To be honest I didn’t think I would get in them let alone like them but to my astonishment they looked great. I could really see my new shape and I was totally elated.

After 8 weeks I went for a follow-up consultation with Mr Vadadoria where more photos were taken and we were able to compare before and after pictures. I’d forgotten what my body looked like before as my shape had changed so much. I was told that the final result would not be seen until 6 months but even so I couldn’t believe the difference the surgery had made – there wasn’t a saddlebag in sight.

I no longer needed to wear the pressure garment so I decided to have a lymphatic drainage massage once a week to help get rid of the swelling and fluid build up and to generally help my body recover. I found this to be very beneficial and could see and feel a difference 2-3 days after each session.

I am now 6 months post op and my body has recovered extremely well. The contour of my thighs has evened out considerably and my scars are very discreet and fading nicely. One thigh (saddlebag area) is very slightly larger than the other which although very minor I am considering a corrective procedure. However, I must state that this is a personal thing and you would not notice unless you really looked.

I can honestly say that having liposuction has been very liberating and I now feel so much more confident in my own skin. It has not been a walk in the park but for me the cost, time and discomfort have been totally worth it. I feel even more motivated in the gym now that I can see the results and the sweat top disguise is now left in the locker.

Thank you so much." - AS



Tummy tuck

"Before I had my tummy tuck I lacked self confidence in my appearance and the way I felt about myself. I had lost an extreme amount of weight which caused me to have a lot of extra loose skin especially around my arms which I tend to try and hide with bigger clothes especially my arms. My Doctor referred me to see Mr Vadodaria to have an assessment to see if I would be suitable for a tummy tuck. I was successful and had my operation at the beginning of the year. I felt so happy and very comfortable with my doctor, he made me feel relaxed and confident about the procedure I was about to have.

The nursing staff on the ward where very patient, understanding and helpful to all my needs during my stay. When I woke up I was in a little discomfort but the nursing staff where right at hand to help me relax and ease any of the pain. My recovery period was a little tiring too but it was all well worth it. When I saw the final results I was overwhelmed with the amazing transformation of my body which has now given me a lot more confidence in the way I look and feel about myself. I now can wear clothes that I feel I look amazing in. I also feel comfortable wearing swimwear in my local swimming pool, which for me is a big thing. Mr Vadodaria has done an amazing performance in giving me a nice flat tummy and giving me the confidence to be who I am and embrace my lovely nice figure. To him and all my staff I am very much appreciative." - TH
