Gold Coast Plastic Surgeon Lipsuction (Fat Removal)

Lipoplasty and Liposculpture are also known as Liposuction which removes localised groups of fatty tissue to alter your body contour.

For successful results, patients should be of a relatively average weight and have extra fat restricted in particular areas like the abdomen hips and buttocks. Lipoplasty is also productive in getting rid of fat deposits from the legs, back, arms, face, and neck.

Australian Plastic Surgeon What to know about liposuction?

While liposuction is a procedure used to remove extra fat, it is neither a substitute for proper diet and exercise, nor a method for overall weight loss. It cannot eliminate cellulite or correct loose, hanging skin. In fact, the best results from liposuction are achieved when you have healthy skin with optimal elasticity allowing it the capacity to shrink evenly after surgery.

If your skin has lost much of its elasticity, you may need a skin tightening procedure such as a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), thigh lift, or buttock lift (fat grafting to to gluteal region). This can be combined with liposuction in a two-stage process.

Highly Awarded Plastic Surgeon Our Procedure

Optimal results from lipoplasty and fat removal are accomplished when you have healthy skin. If the skin has lost a significant amount of its elasticity, it might need a skin tightening surgery like a tummy tuck or lift. General anaesthesia is used for this procedure for maximum patient comfort. The surgery is usually performed using a suction pump device to vacuum away excess fatty deposits. In some cases, a hand-held syringe may be used instead of a pump. There are a number of variations to conventional lipoplasty. The technique chosen for your specific case depends on individual factors that Dr Terrence Scamp will discuss with you.

While some patients choose to have liposculpture on one area of the body, such as the abdomen, you can have several areas treated during the same procedure. This means that liposuction can last from 30 minutes to three hours in duration.

Liposuction Recovery

Following surgery, you will need to wear a snug pressure garment for 6-12 weeks, to promote skin shrinkage and to minimise swelling and bruising as you gradually resume normal activities. This works together with your body’s natural elastin and collagen production to tighten the skin.

You can expect to return to work within one or two weeks.

Liposuction can augment the contour of your body, with the removal of fatty tissues from parts of the body where it can gather in excess. It is important to remember that every patient will achieve a different body shape with liposuction.

To find out what results you can expect from this procedure, you can arrange a professional consultation. In addition, the results of liposuction will only last if a healthy weight is maintained; while it will remove fat tissue from the body, this can return if you gain weight.

This procedure should not be viewed as substitute for a healthy diet and regular exercise.
