Liposuction Sydney NSW

When trying to lose weight or achieve a more toned appearance, it can be difficult to get rid of unwanted fat deposits in certain areas. Sometimes, these fat deposits can linger and remain resistant to diet and exercise, such as fat around the hips, arms, abdomen, and thighs.

For men or women who wish to reduce fat in stubborn areas, liposuction can provide an excellent option. Liposuction is one of the most effective methods of achieving targeted fat reduction, extracting fat cells permanently from the body. The method creates a slimmer and more refined contour in the treatment areas, helping patients attain their desired figure and body goals.

Specialist Plastic Surgeon Dr Laniewski is a highly regarded medical practitioner who designs tailored surgical plans to suit the patient. Servicing the Sydney CBD, Central Coast and Hills District regions, we will provide you with high-quality care at each step of your procedure.

Liposuction – Dr Peter Laniewski

What is liposuction?

Even with a strong exercise routine and a strict healthy diet, it is possible to have localised fatty deposits that are resistant to exercise and dieting. Liposuction surgically removes these unwanted fatty deposits in the targeted area(s) in order to improve proportions, reduce fat bulges, and correct asymmetries. By sculpting targeted areas of the body, we can noticeably improve their appearance according to the patient’s preferred aesthetics.

Stubborn fat pockets can often be a natural consequence of aging, weight fluctuations, metabolism, or other factors. They can appear in areas such as:

  • Neck, cheeks, and chin
  • Chest
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Inner knee
  • Ankles and calves

All of these areas can be treated by liposuction to help patients achieve greater body contours and improve their overall self-confidence.

How it works

The procedure may be performed with either local or general anaesthesia, depending on the size and number of treatment areas, as well as the amount of fat to be removed. It can be performed as one stand-alone procedure, or in combination with others, such as a breast reduction or tummy tuck.

During the procedure, Dr Laniewski will make small incisions, through which to insert a cannula. He will then move it beneath the skin, strategically breaking up the fat tissue for ease of removal. The unwanted fat cells are then suctioned out using a cannula, and the incisions are closed with sutures, leaving you with a more contoured figure. Afterwards, Dr Laniewski will apply dressings and a compression garment, and you can begin your recovery period.

Good candidates

Although liposuction can produce great body contouring results for people of many ages and body types, not every individual is a suitable candidate. Patients considering liposuction should keep in mind that this is not a weight loss procedure. Ideally, candidates should be at a healthy and stable weight, as any changes in your weight can alter the appearance of your initial results. This means if you are overweight or obese, you may need to reduce your BMI before seeking liposuction. Additionally, those who smoke or have certain underlying health conditions may not be suitable for the procedure.

The best way to determine your suitability for liposuction is to have a consultation with Dr Laniewski. During this, you will be able to discuss your desired results, health history, and lifestyle habits. You can also discuss which areas of excess fat you wish to address, as this will help us design a plan that works best for you.

Liposuction aftercare

Recovering from liposuction will involve plenty of rest and following important instructions to support your body’s healing process. Generally, patients should take at least one week off from work or their usual daily routines, so that the body has adequate time to heal. The exact amount of time will depend on the extent of your procedure, the nature of your work, and the advice of Dr Laniewski. There may be some discomfort after the procedure, but this can be managed with prescribed pain medication.

Aftercare instructions may include wearing a compression garment, minimising physical activity, and eating a healthy diet. It is also advisable to avoid smoking and alcohol consumption, as this can increase your risk of complications. If any concerns arise during your recovery, contact us, and we will provide further information and guidance.

Frequently asked questions

Can liposuction be performed with other procedures at the same time?

Liposuction is often effective when performed alone. However, it can also produce good results when combined with other cosmetic surgeries, such as a breast reduction, facelift, or tummy tuck. This is generally because liposuction does not involve removing excess skin or tightening the skin in the treated area. Whereas, by combining procedures, patients can address both skin laxity and excess fat deposits. A discussion with Dr Laniewski will help you decide on a surgical option that best serves your goals.

Will future weight gain affect my results?

This procedure permanently removes fat cells from the targeted area. However, future weight fluctuations can affect your results. This means it is important to keep a stable weight after the procedure if you wish to maintain your body-contouring outcomes.

How long is recovery from liposuction?

The recovery time after liposuction can vary from patient to patient. After your procedure, you should take at least one week away from your usual daily routine to rest at home. You will also need to avoid strenuous activities and wear compression garments for about six weeks, or until advised.

What are the risks of liposuction?

Liposuction comes with some risks and possible complications. These can include fluid accumulation, infection, prolonged healing, damage to the skin or nerves, ongoing pain, scarring, and reactions to anaesthesia. During your consultation, you will be informed of these risks, as well as how to minimise the chance of complications with the appropriate preparation and aftercare.
