Essential Information On Liposculpture
Liposculpture is another term for liposuction, a treatment used to alter the shape of a treatment area through the strategic removal of a certain amount of fat. Areas prone to fat accumulation such as the upper arm, thighs, hips, and abdomen, are common areas for liposculpture Brisbane treatment. Through the removal of fat from these areas, a cosmetic surgery can reshape the area. Therefore, this procedure falls under the umbrella of body contouring procedures.

What Is The Treatment Goal Of Liposculpture?
Liposculpture is a procedure that is aimed at the strategic removal of persistent fats. Contrary to popular belief, most patients having this procedure are not overweight, but struggle with some persistent fat deposits they cannot get rid of through diet and exercise alone. So, patients who already attempted weight loss or dieting, and cannot seem to shift love handles or other unwanted fat elsewhere on the body, could be a good candidate for liposuction surgery.
It is a common misconception that liposuction can be used to treat cellulite. Please note that the removal of fatty deposits will not have an effect on cellulite. Liposculpture or other procedures such as the abdominoplasty are good for body sculpting and reshaping certain areas of the body, but not to remove cellulite on the treated area. If the patient wants to obtain treatment for cellulite, they should mention this during the initial consultation, after which Dr Lanzer or one of his associates can recommend a more suitable treatment.
What Is The Overall Cost Of Liposculpture?
A treatment such as liposculpture Brisbane can be variable in cost. Firstly, the scope of the surgical procedure can influence the price. The more fat cells removed from the treatment area, the more the cosmetic surgery treatment usually costs. Other factors such as the experience of the surgeon and the clinic where you have the procedure can also contribute to the overall cost.
For an exact cost estimate for your liposuction procedure, it is always best to attend a consultation with your cosmetic surgery.

How Is Liposculpture Executed?
Liposculpture involves injecting specific areas with a special local anaesthetic solution. The solution consists of an anaesthetic and certain medications, aimed at preparing the fat deposits for removal, but also to reduce post-treatment side-effects such as bruising and swelling. The cosmetic procedure can also be executed with general anaesthetic or sedation, this is subject to the complexity of liposuction techniques to be used as well as the overall anxiety levels of the patient.
To access the treatment area in question, the cosmetic surgery must make a small incision in the treatment area; this allows the surgeon to feed a small cannula into the treatment area. Once the require number of fat cells is sufficiently broken down, the surgeon attaches the cannula to a vacuum and removes the excess fat through a gentle suction process.
In most cases, the surgeon must make a back and forth movement with the cannula; this helps to break down the fat further and makes removal a little easier. Once the removal is completed, the cosmetic surgery will drain any excess fluids from the treatment area and apply the appropriate dressings.
Is Liposculpture The Right Treatment For Stretch Marks?
No. Stretch marks are addressed outside surgery procedures. Instead of procedures such as liposculpture, tummy tuck or other liposuction treatments, a non-surgical skin care treatment can be used for stretch marks. These particular treatments can also be applicable for acne scarring and other skin irregularities. Many of these skin care procedures can also have a skin tightening effects.
Will I Get Loose Skin?
The skin contracts well after a liposculpture procedure, so patients will usually not experience any excess skin. If a patient wants excess skin removed due to significant weight loss, a tummy tuck procedure could be recommended by the surgeon instead.
What Happens After A Liposculpture Brisbane Treatment?
Most patients are allowed to leave our day surgery on the day of their procedure; this after the patient has been checked medically. Patients are advised to have someone pick them up after the surgery, as patients can experience some discomfort after liposculpture, making driving a little difficult.
Before a patient leaves the clinic, the patient is usually prescribed some medication to keep infection at bay and to manage some of the discomfort that can be experience post-procedure. Patients may also need to wear a compression garment, this allows the treatment area to heal once the fat removal has taken place. It can also maximise the look of the final result.
During your recovery process, strenuous activities are advised against. However, the patient should do some light walking, as this can promote the healing process and prevent complications.
Most patients can return to their normal activities relatively quickly after surgery. Patients will be required to wear a special garment for some time post-procedure, this enables the body to conform to its new shape and it may enhance the healing process too.
Bruising and swelling are still common side-effects experienced after a liposculpture Brisbane procedure. These symptoms do dissipate over time, so it is important to take good care of the treatment area while you recover.
Once patients are fully recovered, they should enjoy regular exercise and maintain a healthy diet to maintain the results obtained through tumescent liposuction of liposculpture. While fatty tissue is physically removed during the treatment, fat can return in other places when a healthy lifestyle is not maintained.
