What Is a Mega Liposuction Treatment?

What Is a Mega Liposuction Treatment?

Mega Liposuction can reduce someone’s size significantly, as over 10 litres of fat can be removed. To maintain the results after the procedure, it is advised that patients combine it with a healthy diet and exercise program to get the best results. The mega liposuction is different from procedures such as the tummy tuck or vaser liposuction. Mega liposuction is large volume liposuction, which means the focus lies on large quantity fat removal that makes it easier for the patient to adjust to a new lifestyle. For contouring or liposculpture procedures such as the tummy tuck and Vaser, the focus lies on sculpting the treated areas to reach the desired aesthetic result.

What Quantity of Fat Is Removed Through Mega Liposuction?

What Quantity of Fat Is Removed Through Mega Liposuction?

As briefly mentioned in this article already, mega liposuction can eliminate 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, our cosmetic surgeons 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 our clinic for patients who are considering the procedure but would like to obtain more information about mega liposuction first.

    Who Is Mega Liposuction Best for?

    Before we start explaining what this procedure could do for you, we must state that mega liposuction is only meant to kick-start your weight loss. By choosing mega liposuction, you will see a significant 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 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. This does not only apply to the results you will obtain but also your overall health for some time to come.

    When you visit 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.

    An increasingly large number of patients now choose mega liposuction procedures. Most patients who choose mega liposuction may find it easier to exercise afterwards, which will contribute to better weight management in the future.

    During the procedure

    During the procedure

    During this kind of procedure, fat cells are physically removed from the body. The mega liposuction procedure is executed with tumescent fluid. Firstly, using tumescent fluid in mega liposuction allows local sedation; this means patients have the option to get this treatment under 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, the surgeon can remove excess fat a little easier.

    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.

    After the procedure

    After the procedure

    After mega liposuction, you will be advised 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 are left with a question after surgery, feel free to call the number to speak to Dr Lanzer or a member of the medical staff.

    What Else to Consider with Mega Liposuction

    Can An Overweight Person Get Liposuction or A Weight Loss Surgery Procedure?

    Overweight patients can obtain a mega liposuction procedure, but there is a weight limit associated with this liposuction technique. 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 keep living a healthy lifestyle after their lipo procedure. If a healthy diet and active lifestyle are 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.

    What Are the Summarised Benefits of Mega Liposuction?

    1. Offers a dramatic reduction in the body shape;
    2. Is ideal for patients who weigh approximately 120kgs or more;
    3. Can be performed before, after, or combined with the lap band;
    4. The surgical procedure can be done under a local anaesthetic or a general anaesthetic;
    5. Compression garments used post-surgery keeps bruising and swelling minimal;
    6. Tumescent liposuction numbs the area and reduces the chance of bleeding and can be implemented in breast reductions too;
    7. Can remove up to 10 litres to receive the initial kick start on weight loss.
    For more information, or to consult with Dr Lanzer about this treatment, feel free to take advantage of the free consultation for first-time patients at The Dr Lanzer Clinic.

    Is There Further Weight Loss Assistance At Your Clinic?

    The Dr Lanzer Clinic has his own dietician – Dr Mark Surdut – who will be more than happy to assist with the applicable dietary advice, but also maintenance plans if they are required. Since lipo can create quite a dramatic result, a fitting diet plan and exercise routine are recommended. Therefore, we advise most patients to attend several appointments with Mark. We often recommend additional weight loss assistance for patients who obtain mega liposuction. While many patients already understand what needs to be done to turn their lifestyle around, having additional assistance at their 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; 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.

    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 okay, 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. Naturally, you can also acquire the services of the dietician at The Dr Lanzer Clinic.

    In regard to the cost of liposuction, patients must know that their procedure cost can be different to that of someone else. After all, your procedure is focused and tailored for you, which means the surgeon can use different techniques during the treatment.

    Frequently Asked Questions for Mega Liposuction

    Patients who have a considerable amount of weight to lose could obtain a mega liposuction treatment at The Dr Lanzer Clinic.

    The cost of a mega liposuction procedure is variable since the fat quantity 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 surgery. 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. Mega Liposuction begins at $7,995 plus hospital fees, subject to consultation.

    Doctor Lanzer has performed over 25,000 procedures with no fatalities. Mega Liposuction is very safe when performed correctly.

    With Mega Liposuction it can be possible to lose up to 15 litres, often performed over two procedures.

    Mega Liposuction patients do not always lose weight. The procedure focuses more on sculpting and changing a patient’s shape.

    The results of 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.

    Patients can view before and after photographs of mega lipo in the case studies on our website. Simply visit the appropriate section of our website containing the before and after photographs. Please note that photographs can be different through light variations, contrast, clothing, different backgrounds, camera distance, makeup and more. Results obtained from the procedure can vary from patient to patient as well.

    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 time. The second procedure could be executed one week after your first, although it could also be a few months after your first procedure.
