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 make the patient feel better about themselves, and assist them with the necessary kick start in their weight loss regime.
Liposuction was initially for localised areas of fat such as love handles. As the advanced 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. In particular 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 CAN MEGA LIPOSUCTION DO?
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. However, 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 10 litres of fat. The procedure can be used for patients up to 120 kilograms. If you had a lap band recently, you can still take advantage of mega lipo. The procedure can also be performed before you have the lap band surgery done.
Patients who opt for a fat removal of 10 litres will need to opt for more than one session. Even though you will see some serious changes during procedure, 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 lipo.
In addition to the physical advantages of the fat removal, many patients will also notice some clear differences mentally.
How Many Procedures Will I Need For 10 Litres Of Fat?
Patients who are opting for a total fat removal of 10 litres will have to come to the clinic two times. Dr Lanzer can remove up to 5-6 litres of fat per procedure, so the mega liposuction may require more than one procedure.
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.
When Do Patients Opt For Mega Liposuction?
Patients with a large amount of excess fat will usually be better off with a mega lipo. Most minor liposuction procedures are meant to remove small amounts of excess fat in targeted areas, however, if you struggle with a significant amount of overweight it will be best to opt for mega lipo.
Before you opt for mega lipo, Dr Lanzer will lay out your options in front of you. There could be an option that is better for you, so it is always a good idea to see what other possibilities are out there for you. By doing so, you will get the best result possible.

How Is Mega Lipo Executed?
Mega lipo can be compared to the traditional liposuction procedure. Just like with traditional lipo, fat cells are long term removed from the body. The surgeon will choose to target certain problem areas, this is usually discussed with the patient before you come in for the procedure.
Even though mega lipo can be compared to traditional lipo, the techniques have evolved quite a bit over the past few years. Mega lipo has become a lot less risky than before and with the use of tumescent fluid, there are a lot of benefits to be had.
First of all, the use of tumescent fluid in mega lipo allows local sedation. Instead of choosing for general anaesthetic, the procedure can be executed under a local anaesthetic instead. 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 has been 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 lipo are more long term. However, there are some conditions. 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 doing 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 Lipo?
After mega lipo, you will be required to wear a tight garment for a minimum of 4 weeks. 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.

Mega Liposuction procedures can be done in Melbourne & Nationwide practices and are available for consultations with Dr Lanzer.
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, for example yoga, but mega liposuction can remove some of those fats to make exercise somewhat easier.
To get a more long term result from a mega 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.
