Liposuction Sydney NSW

Our body shape, whether trim and slim or shapely and curvy, is typically determined by a multitude of factors. This could include genetics and our metabolism. Our body shape can also be impacted by each of our lifestyle choices. Some people can lose weight easily, while others, even if they lead a healthy lifestyle and exercise regularly, have trouble getting rid of unwanted fat.

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes unwanted fatty deposits. It can also allow your surgeon to help you to sculpt your body into your ideal shape.

Prior to surgery, it’s worth undergoing a general weight loss program through diet and exercise. You will lose weight and fat in a healthy way. This will then allow you to better able determine the areas of your body that can best benefit from liposuction. Liposuction can improve your shape and your contours. But it is not an all-in-one cure. The procedure doesn’t remove loose and sagging skin or cellulite. It is for this reason that many people undergo a tummy tuck or other related skin removal procedure at the same time as liposuction.

SUITABLE CANDIDATES FOR LIPOSCULPTURE

Not every individual is a suitable candidate for undergoing liposculpture. Both men and women can benefit from the results of liposuction. It is important to keep in mind that this is not a weight loss procedure. It is essential that you are at a healthy and stable weight before considering the procedure. Any changes in your weight can alter the results of your liposuction procedure.

Even with a strong exercise routine and strict healthy diet, it is possible to have localised fatty deposits that can be stubbornly resistant to exercise and dieting. They can often be a natural consequence of aging. Liposuction can help in a number of areas that may be more prone to stubborn fatty deposits.

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

Liposuction is effective when performed alone. It can also produce good results when combined with other cosmetic surgeries. This could include a breast reduction, facelift, tummy tuck and a number of other cosmetic surgery procedures. Liposuction, when combined with another cosmetic procedure, can help to enhance the results. Your tummy tuck could result in a trimmer waist. Your breast reduction could result in smoother results. Liposuction is a versatile cosmetic procedure.

LIPOSUCTION FAQs

How much does liposuction cost?

The costs of liposuction can vary greatly between individuals. There are a number of factors that can impact the costs of this cosmetic procedure. They could include the extent of the liposuction that is needed. The location of the liposuction and whether or not the liposuction is done in conjunction with other types of cosmetic procedures can also factor into the costs. The technique that your surgeon uses will also have an impact on the costs that you could be facing.

The best way to determine what your costs could be is to schedule a consultation with Dr Laniewski. Discuss your realistic goals and any procedures that you’d like to consider including along with the liposuction. There will be a significant cost difference between liposuction on an area of the face and an area of your body.

Will future weight gain pile the fat back on?

This procedure permanently removes fat cells from the targeted area. That said, if you do gain weight after having the liposuction procedure, your body will respond in a typical manner. As the body gains weight, fat cells will enlarge to accommodate the change. That fat will need to go somewhere.

However, the area of your body that has undergone liposculpture will now have fewer fat cells and other areas of your body may take up fat instead. If you’ve had liposuction on your tummy and hips, when you gain weight back you may start to see your thighs are getting much larger than before.

With continued weight gain, the area that has undergone to this procedure may start to expand in an uneven manner as other fat cells move into the area. The good news is that most patients find that the weight lost during liposculpture will make motivation for your exercise program a whole lot easier than before. Continued healthy habits will keep your results looking great and help to keep you feeling confident.

What does lipo surgery involve?

Advancements in lipo surgery techniques have made the procedure safer, easier and ensures a faster recovery than ever before. Liposuction methods include the following.

  • Tumescent liposuction: The area that is undergoing the liposculpture is numbed using an anaesthetic. The liposuction tube (cannula), although acting like a vacuum cleaner, is actually as narrow as a needle, and won’t cause ugly scarring. An anaesthetic is injected into the fatty tissue to minimise your discomfort. Liposuction will then follow.
  • Ultrasound-assisted liposuction: An ultrasound procedure is first used to liquefy the fat, making it much easier to remove it through the narrow cannula.
  • Laser-assisted liposuction: This method of liposuction also first liquefies the fat before it is removed.

The type of liposuction that Dr Laniewski opts for will depend on several factors that are unique to you.

The liposuction procedure generally does not require an overnight stay in the hospital. The surgery will generally last between one and five hours. Working with Dr Laniewski and discussing your cosmetic goals will determine which liposuction technique is right for you.

What about after-surgery care?

Liposuction is not as invasive of a procedure as other surgical procedures are. That said, it is still a surgical procedure that can take a toll on your body. Recovering from the procedure will involve rest. Plan to take at least a week off from work so that your body has adequate time to heal. You may find it helpful to have a family member or friend take care of you for the first day or two after your procedure.

Your surgeon may place small drains, to assist with the removal of fluids. This will depend on the extent of the liposuction and other procedures that you have done.

You will need to wear a compression garment to help control the swelling and to help your body adjust to its new contours.

Dr Laniewski and his team will provide you with the instructions that you need to ensure you keep the surgical site clean. You may also need to take antibiotics to help minimise the potential for infection. There may be some discomfort after the procedure. Dr Laniewski will ensure that you are made to feel comfortable every step of the way. Over-the-counter pain relievers are typically all that patients require after the first two or three days.

Your surgeon and team will provide you with a personalised guidance for a fast and successful recovery. Heeding the instructions you are given will help to ensure that you get the best results from your cosmetic procedure. Following the guidance of your surgeon can also help to ensure that you heal without complication.

The results of liposuction can be quite remarkable and impressive, particularly when combined with other cosmetic procedures. While there is still some expected swelling after the procedure, most patients will notice results immediately. As the swelling gradually reduces, the results will be more visible.

Many patients also feel an increased determination to keep the weight off once they see the positive difference of the procedure. Liposuction can be just what you need to turn the corner toward a healthier lifestyle. Remember that maintaining your healthy weight is an important part of maintaining the results of your procedure.
