LIPOSUCTION (LIPOPLASTY) WOLLONGONG CLINICS
Surgical Reduction of Body Fat with Liposuction
Are you frustrated with not being able to tone your abdomen, buttocks and thighs despite exercising and following a healthy diet? If stubborn fat is preventing you from loving your body, liposuction can help. Sydney and Wollongong liposuction surgeon can reduce unwanted body fat to give you a sculpted physique and boost your confidence.
Liposuction is a fantastic procedure. No other procedure has such impressive results with such small incisions. It is however not a procedure for everyone. The optimum patient is young, has some fat deposits and whose skin quality is good which goes with being young. Older people are also candidates and results depend on their skin quality. In my experience, if a patient has excess subcutaneous fat, but has good skin texture, is relatively young and the abdominal musculature is in good shape, then liposuction alone is an excellent technique and is probably recommended for this type of patient.
Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis in hospital or a day surgery facility. General anaesthesia nesthesia is administered to keep you completely comfortable during surgery.
Liposuction is one of the very few procedures which has minimal scarring with extremely positive and impressive results. The scars are very small.
Liposuction occurs in numerous different forms, however in general there are two main techniques:
- Suction-assisted liposuction which uses suction alone to suck out the fat through metal cannulas with small holes in the tip of the cannula.
- Power assisted liposuction is basically the same as suction assisted liposuction except the handpiece has a pistol like action which moves the cannula in and out by a few millimetres. This technique is very safe, efficient and effective.
- Ultrasonic-assisted liposuction which uses ultrasound to liquefy the fat and the emulsified fat has to be sucked out through a different cannula.
The scars from liposuction are usually very small in the region of 4-5mm, whilst the scars from ultrasonic-assisted liposuction are a’ little longer, often in the range of approximately 6-8mm. Depending on the number of areas that are treated, hospitalisation can be day only or overnight.
You can expect some mild to moderate swelling, bruising and tenderness in the treated area. The worst of the symptoms should subside within a few days, but it can take several months for swelling to completely dissipate.
