  4. LIPOSUCTION

Liposuction in Melbourne offers a tailored solution for those seeking to eliminate stubborn fat deposits and achieve a more sculpted physique. This popular cosmetic procedure targets areas resistant to diet and exercise, such as the abdomen, inner and outer thighs and hips. With advanced liposuction techniques and expert care, you can achieve precise body contouring results tailored to your unique needs.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure aimed at removing excess fat cells from various parts of the body. It involves the use of specialised techniques to break down and suction out unwanted fat cells, resulting in improved body contours. Common areas treated include the abdomen, thighs, hips, arms and neck.

What are the Benefits of Liposuction?

Liposuction offers several benefits, including the reduction of excess fat deposits and the enhancement of body contours. This procedure is particularly beneficial for individuals who have maintained a stable weight but still struggle with localised fat deposits that do not respond to a healthy diet and exercise.

Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction in Melbourne?

Good candidates for liposuction are those who have stubborn fat deposits that have not responded to diet and exercise, maintain a stable weight and have good skin elasticity. Candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the liposuction procedure. It is important to note that liposuction is not a weight-loss solution but a body contouring procedure.

Are There any Risks or Side Effects?

As with any surgical procedure, liposuction carries potential risks and side effects. These can vary from mild to more serious and it's important to be aware of them before undergoing the procedure. Common risks and side effects include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Temporary numbness

More serious risks, although rare, include:

  • Infection
  • Blood clots
  • Deep vein thrombosis
Discussing these risks with your surgeon is essential before deciding to have the procedure. See here for more information about the Risks and Complications of Cosmetic Surgery.

Liposuction in Melbourne with Eastern Plastic Surgery

Consultation

During your liposuction consultation, one of our specialist plastic surgeons will assess your individual needs and discuss the most suitable liposuction techniques for your goals. This consultation is an opportunity to ask questions and understand the procedure, recovery process and expected outcomes.

Liposuction Procedure

The liposuction procedure begins with the administration of local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia, depending on the extent of the surgery. The surgeon then makes small incisions and inserts a cannula to break up and suction out the excess fat cells.

Techniques such as tumescent liposuction involve the injection of a solution to minimise bleeding and facilitate fat removal. Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound energy to liquefy fat before removal.

Recovery

Patients typically require one to two nights in the hospital post-surgery. Expect some tightness and discomfort for the first one to two weeks. Most day-to-day activities can usually be resumed after two weeks, with three to four weeks off work recommended, especially for physically demanding jobs.

Heavy lifting and exercise should be avoided for at least two weeks. A supportive garment is often worn for six weeks to ensure comfort and support. Follow-up with Dr Lin will occur within one week after discharge to monitor the healing process.

FAQs

If you have any more questions about liposuction in Melbourne, please don’t hesitate to contact us. In the meantime, you can find FAQs below that may provide the additional information you’re looking for.

What areas can be treated with liposuction?

Liposuction can target various areas, including the abdomen, inner and outer thighs, hips, arms and neck. It is a versatile cosmetic surgery procedure often used to remove stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise.
How does liposuction differ from an Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)?

Liposuction removes excess fat cells, while an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is a surgical procedure that removes both excess fat and skin and tightens the abdominal muscles. Both procedures can be combined for optimal body contouring results.
Is liposuction a safe cosmetic procedure?

Liposuction is generally safe when performed by a qualified specialist plastic surgeon. As with all surgical procedures, it carries some risks, which should be discussed during your consultation to ensure you are a suitable candidate and understand the potential outcomes.
Why are compression garments necessary after liposuction?

Compression garments are worn after liposuction to reduce swelling, support the healing tissues and help the skin conform to the new contours. They are essential for ensuring a smooth recovery and enhancing the final results of the procedure.
Can liposuction help me achieve a healthier lifestyle?

Liposuction can remove stubborn fat deposits, making it easier to achieve a more balanced and healthy body shape. However, maintaining the results requires a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise, to prevent new fat accumulation.
What is tumescent liposuction and how does it differ from other techniques?

Tumescent liposuction is a liposuction procedure where a large volume of diluted local anaesthetic is injected into the fatty tissue before fat removal. This technique minimises blood loss and reduces discomfort during and after liposuction surgery, enhancing the safety and effectiveness of fat removal.
How effective is liposuction surgery in removing fat cells?

Liposuction surgery is highly effective in permanently removing fat cells from targeted areas. During the liposuction procedure, fat cells are suctioned out, which can significantly improve body contours. However, maintaining the results requires a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle.
Can liposuction be combined with other procedures?

Yes, liposuction can be combined with other surgical procedures, such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), to enhance overall body contouring results. This approach allows for more comprehensive fat removal and skin tightening, addressing multiple concerns in a single surgical session.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek the opinion of an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
