How Body Contouring Can Be Improved with Liposuction Treatment
Despite a rigorous exercise routine and healthy eating habits, some persistent fat deposits can be incredibly difficult to get rid of. Fortunately, liposuction at Dr Lanzer’s Melbourne Clinic could provide a solution, more specifically by removing those persistent fat deposits and providing the body with a more athletic appearance in general.

How Does a Liposuction at the Melbourne Clinic Work?
Liposuction procedures allow Dr Lanzer to remove fat without having to cut the fat out, because a liposuction treatment at the Melbourne Clinic is performed with a tumescent solution and a gentle suction process.
The cannula (small tube) that is used for the removal of the excess fat during the procedure is inserted into the treatment area through incisions made by Dr Lanzer. These incisions are quite similar to the incisions used during keyhole surgery, although it is important to understand that their size may vary according to the size of the treatment area and the amount of fat that needs to be removed.
Why Does Dr Lanzer Use a Tumescent Solution for Liposuction at the Melbourne Clinic?
The combination of lipo and a tumescent solution enables Dr Lanzer to prepare the fat before it is removed from the body. A tumescent solution also sedates and numbs the treatment area, so it can also be described as a local anaesthetic.
Tissue that has been treated with a tumescent solution will expand over a certain period of time; this makes the treatment area easier to sculpt for Dr Lanzer. Tumescent solution performs other functions during a procedure as well; this includes numbing the treatment area, adding extra fluid to the area, which eliminates eliminating the need for intravenous fluids, closing the blood vessels and adding anti-bacterial components to reduce the chance of infection.

Why Choose Dr Lanzer and His Melbourne Clinic?
Dr Lanzer was one of the first Australian surgeons to introduce the tumescent lipo procedures into our country. To introduce the procedure to other professionals, he held a conference in 1992. In addition to being a licenced cosmetic surgeon, Dr Lanzer is also a dermatologist, and this has benefited many patients who have come to his Melbourne clinic for treatment.
Over the past 22 years, Dr Lanzer has performed more than 15,000 lipo procedures. In neither of these treatments was a blood transfusion required.
Which Areas of the Body Can Be Treated with Lipo at the Dr Lanzer Clinic?
Liposuction can be used to treat a wide variety of areas on the body. Common areas that are treated with lipo include the outer thighs, buttocks, hips, flanks and the abdomen. However, the procedure can also be executed on other areas, which includes the knees, inner thighs, arms, back and neck. Lipo on the ankles and calves is rarer, but also belongs to the possibilities.
Most patients taking advantage of lipo are already on their target weight, but struggle with persistent fat deposits that will not go away with a good exercise routine and a healthy diet. Even though lipo is not meant as a treatment for obesity, in some cases, the procedure can be used to give a patient a head start for their diet.
Can I Get Loose Skin After My Liposuction Treatment?
When someone loses a significant amount of fat, excess skin is not totally out of question. However, this is not always the case after a lipo procedure. When the fat is surgically removed from the treatment area, the body will start to create small canals in the area where the fat used to be. The canals then contract and close, mainly due to the use of the compression garment and the production of elastin and collagen by the body. Therefore, the skin may retract and tighten after a lipo procedure.
Can I Get Another Type of Lipo at the Dr Lanzer Clinic?
Yes. At the Dr Lanzer Clinic, each procedure is tailored towards the needs of the patient. Another lipo treatment that can be obtained from our clinic is the liposculpture procedure, a treatment where the surgeon is going to remove fat, as well as sculpt and shape the fat to give the patient a more athletic appearance.
Dr Lanzer can use several devices to execute liposculpture, more specifically MicroAire and Vaser. The MicroAire is a vibrating device, which allows a generally softer and larger removal of fat. It is a common device during a gynecomastia procedure, otherwise known as a man boob reduction. Because of the nature of the device, the MicroAire is best suited for treatment areas where the fat is thicker and more fibrous.
Vaser is another option for liposculpture and used quite frequently at the Dr Lanzer Clinic. Treatment with Vaser can be seen as ultrasound-assisted lipo, where ultrasound is used to soften the fat. The use of the treatment may provide the patient with skin contraction after the procedure, subsequently avoiding loose skin.
In addition to liposculpture, patients can also obtain treatments such as Coolsculpt and Coolshape, which are treatments classified as non-surgical liposuction. During this non-surgical lipo treatment, the respective device will freeze the fat cells instead of removing them. After a certain period of time, the body will use its digestive cells to remove the fat slowly over the course of several months.
