Dear Lin Sue
I cannot provide you with the contact details of a doctor in the Gauteng area who does liposuction as this would be regarded as unethical. However, I can advise that you can find a cosmetic surgeon who does liposuction as follows: 1) Ask your gp to refer you; 2) Check in the phone book of your area under 'Medical Specialists' for cosmetic surgeons and phone them to ask who specialises in liposuction. Once you have identified a cosmetic surgeon who does liposuction you can make an appointment to discuss the entire procedure and all its pros and cons with the doctor.
Best regards

I had liposuction done ten yrs ago and again in the same area eight years ago Now i have gained weight again in the same area and I get this terrible itching which seems to be just beneath the skin all along the area i had liposuction on. The skin shows no bruising or any marks but it itches alot
