Liposuction to reshape your body

Welcome to Aesthetica in Armadale Melbourne, where we offer liposuction, a highly effective cosmetic surgical procedure designed to remove localized fat deposits from specific areas of the body.
It is also known as liposculpture or suction-assisted lipectomy, is not intended for weight loss but is an excellent option for individuals seeking to reshape their bodies when diet and exercise alone are insufficient.

Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure.
The result is permanent :

  • After puberty, you do not grow any more fat cells
  • Fat cells are permanently removed with liposuction
  • With the reduced number of fat cells, you can still put on weight but you will not go back to your previous shape


It’s essential to have realistic expectations when considering to reshape your body. This procedure is suitable for healthy individuals with realistic cosmetic goals.

Keep in mind that older individuals with less elastic skin may achieve different results compared to those with younger, suppler skin. Liposuction doesn’t improve muscle tone, so maintaining a balanced diet and exercise regimen is crucial for long-term success.

Our  Doctors have performed over 3,000 liposuction procedures. Most importantly, continue to refine their techniques by attending workshops and conferences in Australia and the United States.

Our fat reduction procedures are a highly effective solution to reduce those problem areas.
As a result, we will offer you best silhouette options from a small area with minimal invasive local anaesthesia procedures, through to large area liposuction with a general anaesthetic.
Liposuction works because it removes fat cells.
After puberty your body does not create new fat cells, instead, when you gain weight the fat cells you already have expanded.
Should you gain weight after yourprocedure, it goes to all the fat cells that remain in your body. It is better to think of this as a body contouring or fat reduction procedure rather than a weight loss procedure.

Liposuction FAQ

Which areas can have liposuction

Liposuction is a versatile procedure that can significantly enhance the contours of various body areas, including:

Legs: Whether you wish to refine the appearance of your ankles, calves, knees, or inner and outer thighs, liposuction can help you achieve the desired results.

Buttocks and Hips: Say goodbye to unwanted bulges and embrace a sleeker, more defined shape.

Waist and Abdomen: Stubborn fat around your waistline or abdomen can be effectively addressed through liposuction, giving you a more toned and sculpted midsection.

Breasts, Chest, and Back: Liposuction can help individuals dealing with excess fat in these areas, providing a smoother and more contoured appearance.

Overdeveloped Male Breasts: Gynecomastia, or the development of excess breast tissue in men, can be corrected through liposuction, restoring a more masculine chest profile.

Back of the Upper Arms: Achieve slimmer arms and bid farewell to the dreaded “bat wings” with liposuction.

Neck and Chin: If you’re seeking a more defined jawline and a reduction in neck fat, liposuction can deliver impressive results.

Post-Surgery or Trauma Sites: Liposuction can be used to create a more natural skin contour in areas affected by previous surgeries or trauma.

Large Fatty Tumors (Lipomas): Liposuction can effectively remove these benign fatty tumors, improving both appearance and comfort.

liposuction procedure

We have been performing tumescent liposuction for over 25 years. It is our preferred technique.
Your surgery begins with tiny incisions (approx 3-4 mm), placed in an inconspicuous location where the tumescent solution is infused.
After that, the area becomes numb and the blood vessels constrict.
This leads to painless and easy removal of unwanted fatty bulges.
Most importantly, for your comfort, your procedure is performed under heavy sedation or general anaesthesia.

Our experienced surgeons, also offer a range of other modified methods to remove fat cells, including:

  • Ultrasound Liposuction: Allows for the removal of fat cells using an ultrasound device by melting the fat cells.
  • Power-Assisted Liposuction: Uses a power cannula to remove excess fat on larger areas.

Our cosmetic surgeons will always recommend the best option for your concerns and to meet your expectations.

liposuction recovery

our recovery includes 24-hour support so you should never feel alone with any concerns you may have.
