Mega Liposuction Procedures
Mega Liposuction Procedures
Patients who have a considerable amount of weight to lose could obtain a mega liposuction
treatment at the Dr Lanzer Clinic. Of course, the mega liposuction must be considered
carefully, and the patient must show a willingness to maintain a healthy lifestyle after
the procedure. To learn more about mega liposuction at the Dr Lanzer Clinic, please read
the information below.
What Is Mega Liposuction?
Mega Liposuction can be used as an aid in weight reduction, where over ten litres of fat can be removed in a few sessions. It is advised that patients combine it with a healthy diet and exercise program to get the best results.
Who Is Mega Liposuction Best For?
Before we start explaining what this procedure could do for you, we do need to mention that mega liposuction is only meant to kick-start your weight loss. By choosing mega liposuction, you will see a significant amount of difference in body shape, but you will still need to maintain a balanced diet to keep these results.
With mega liposuction, Dr Lanzer can remove up to ten litres of fat. The procedure can be used for patients who weigh approximately one hundred and twenty kilograms. If you had a lap band recently, you can still take advantage of mega liposuction. The procedure can also be performed before you have the lap band surgery done.
Patients who choose a fat removal of ten litres will need to obtain more than one session. Even though you will see some serious changes between procedures, it is still recommended to combine the procedure with a healthy diet and exercise program.
When you come to the Dr Lanzer clinic, you can also get a consultation with our dietician. If you have been struggling with weight loss for a very long time, our dietician will be able to assist you before and after the mega liposuction.
Can an Overweight Person Get Liposuction?
Overweight patients can obtain a mega liposuction procedure, but there is a weight limit associated with the procedure. Mega liposuction can only be executed on overweight patients up to one hundred and twenty kilograms since a higher weight could pose a significant risk during the procedure.
As mentioned earlier, liposuction can only be executed on patients who have shown a willingness to maintain a healthy lifestyle after the procedure. If a healthy diet and active lifestyle is not maintained, fat can easily return to the patient’s body. Since liposuction can be an investment, patients must ask themselves if they can maintain their new lifestyle after the procedure.
How Much Fat Can Be Removed with Mega Liposuction?
As briefly mentioned in this article already, mega liposuction can remove up to ten litres of fat. However, this amount of fat is variable from patient to patient. Some patients may need less fat removed to obtain the desired result.
During a consultation at our clinic, Dr Lanzer can provide you with an estimate on the amount of fat that can safely be removed from the body. There is a free, no-obligation appointment available at the Dr Lanzer Clinic for patients who are considering the procedure but would like to obtain more information about mega liposuction first.
How Many Procedures Will I Need for the Removal of Ten Litres of Fat?
Patients who choose a total fat removal of ten litres will have to come to the clinic two times. Dr Lanzer can remove up to five to six litres of fat per procedure, so the mega liposuction may require more than one session.
In general, you can expect some downtime in between procedures. It is hard to estimate how long this downtime will be because every patient has his or her own healing process. The second procedure could be executed one week after your first, although it could also be a few months after your first procedure.
What Is the Cost of Mega Liposuction?
The cost of a mega liposuction procedure is variable since the amount of fat to be removed can be different from patient to patient. To get the most accurate estimate, it is often recommended to get a consultation with your cosmetic surgeon. In some cases, an estimate for mega liposuction could be obtained by submitting photographs via email to the Dr Lanzer Clinic and requesting an estimate.
Is There Further Weight Loss Assistance Available at the Dr. Lanzer Clinic?
At Dr Lanzer’s Day Clinic, Mark Surdut is our dietician consultant, who can assist with dietary advice, weight loss and maintenance plans. Liposuction may produce a dramatic and significant shape change that will give a great boost to exercise routines and lifestyle, which in turn assists them with the necessary kick-start in their weight loss regime.
We often recommend additional weight loss assistance for patients who obtain the mega liposuction. While many patients already understand what needs to be done to turn their lifestyle around, having additional assistance at your side can certainly help maintain those healthy lifestyle choices.
Of course, a diet is not the only thing that must be considered when it comes to a healthier lifestyle. Patients must also exercise regularly and maintain an exercise routine; this once they have recovered from the procedure. Not quite sure where to start with exercise? Get in touch with your local GP, the Dr Lanzer Clinic, or a personal trainer to help you get started.

How Was the Mega Liposuction Procedure Invented?
Liposuction was initially for localised areas of fat such as love handles. As the experienced surgeons found the new method so effective and with little serious problems, they started to apply the procedure to patients who are struggling with weight issues. Dr Lanzer took a keen interest in this process and helped develop this next progression. His initial patients got excellent results and it quickly became a real option.
Dr Lanzer demonstrated these results on “Good Medicine” with Jennifer Keyte on the Today Tonight program. He has also been featured on “The Body Specialists” program and in many cosmetic magazines. He has performed thousands of liposuction procedures and has been invited to speak in the USA on a few occasions about his experience and methods. He spoke at major clinical meetings in the USA both for the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons and The American Academy of Dermatologic Surgeons. He also published his recommendations on Safety in an American Medical Journal and subsequently was asked to publish these safety recommendations in an international textbook on liposuction.
What Are the Main Benefits of Mega Liposuction?
An increasingly large number of patients now choose mega liposuction procedures. Most patients who choose a mega liposuction may find it easier to exercise afterwards, which will contribute to better weight management in the future.
How Is Mega Liposuction Executed?
During a mega liposuction, fat cells are physically removed from the body. The surgeon will choose to target certain problem areas, this is usually discussed with the patient before the patient comes in for the procedure.
The mega liposuction procedure is executed with a tumescent fluid. Firstly, using tumescent fluid in mega liposuction allows local sedation. Therefore, the procedure can be executed under a local anaesthetic. However, the tumescent fluid does not only make the area numb, it also makes the fat cells softer and more even. By using the tumescent fluid, it is a lot easier for the surgeon to remove the fat during the procedure.
Once the area is sedated, the surgeon will insert a small suction tube through the created incision. When the suction tube is in place, the surgeon will start removing the fat through the tube. The suction process is completely painless, and patients will not feel a thing during this procedure.
How Long Can I Keep These Results?
The results of a mega liposuction could be permanent. However, there are some conditions patients must meet after their procedure. Patients who gain weight after the procedure will notice that the fat cells are coming back, so it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. By maintaining a healthy diet and enjoying regular exercise, the fat removed by liposuction will not return.
Patients who are serious about maintaining their weight after the procedure can also count on the expertise of our dietician. We recommend booking a few consultations with our dietician, so you can obtain valuable information and stay on the right track where weight loss is concerned.
What Happens After Mega Liposuction?
After mega liposuction, you will be required to wear a tight garment for a determined time. Even though patients recover quite quickly, it is recommended to take sufficient rest after the procedure and not to force your body too quickly. The nurses at the clinic will be able to tell you more about the recovery process when you come in for a consultation.
All patients are also given a phone number they can call after the procedure. If you have any questions or concerns after your surgery, feel free to call the number to speak to Dr Lanzer or a member of the medical staff.

What Are the Main Things to Remember About Mega Liposuction?
Even though mega liposuction removes a large amount of fat from the body, the treatment should not be considered as a weight loss treatment. When a patient obtains a mega liposuction, they usually have quite a bit of weight to lose, so their weight loss journey only begins when they leave the surgery. However, the mega liposuction does provide them with a head start and can make exercise a little easier. Some patients may experience fat gets in the way when trying to do some exercises, but mega liposuction can remove some of those fats to make exercise somewhat easier.
To get a more long-term result from this liposuction, the patient must be willing to change their lifestyle for the better and maintain it. Therefore, it is essential to see if you can maintain such a healthy lifestyle before you have the procedure, because the removal of fat does not mean the fat can’t return. When the surgeon gives you the all-clear, it is essential to start exercising and eating healthy to keep fat from returning. It could also be a good idea to hire the services of a nutritionist or personal trainer at this time, since they can help you maintain a healthy weight after your treatment.
