What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a very popular cosmetic surgery procedure for both men and women.
It involves reducing targeted fat fro your body to improve your silhouette and body shape.
Generally, not many people know what you are going through.
Above all, we are happy to share our experiences to help and support you throughout your journey.
It is also known as liposculpture, surgical fat reduction, mega liposuction, tumescent liposuction, liposuction surgery, ultrasound liposuction, Vaser liposuction.
Most importantly, if you are having trouble reducing unwanted fat from targeted areas, or just unhappy with your shape, then our Aesthetica surgeons may have the answers for you.
Dr Ashley leads our team of cosmetic surgeons and has performed over 10,000 liposuction procedures. Most importantly, he continues to refine his techniques by attending workshops and conferences in 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 (full body) mega 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 your liposuction surgery, 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 in women
In women, there are more areas of fatty deposits.
- outer thighs
- inner thighs
- upper hips
- cheeks and chin
- knees, lower legs and ankles
Your Liposuction Procedure
We have been performing tumescent liposuction for over 25 years. It is our preferred technique. Dr Ashley is performing 2 – 3 liposuction procedures per week, at the moment.
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.
- Mega Liposuction: Term used for the removal of large volumes of fat.
Our cosmetic surgeons will always recommend the best option for your concerns and to meet your expectations.
