Request Consultation

There are many liposuction procedures at the Melbourne Clinic that could be used for the removal of persistent fat deposits and contouring various areas of the body. Below, patients can find an overview of liposculpture procedures at the Melbourne Clinic and their applications.

Tumescent Liposuction

The tumescent liposuction is a liposuction procedure that uses a tumescent solution as well as suction for fat removal. The tumescent solution consists of diluted lidocaine and epinephrine, which are injected into the fat cells that need to be removed during the procedure. The lidocaine is a local anaesthetic that will sedate the treatment area, while the epinephrine is a substance that shrinks capillaries (fine branching blood vessels). The use of epinephrine during the procedure has the ability to reduce blood loss.

Using a tumescent solution during a liposuction procedure also enables the surgeon to break down the fat cells before removal. Once the tumescent solution starts to work, the surgeon is able to remove the excess fat with a small cannula after making some small incisions, back and forth movements and a gentle suction process.

Tumescent liposuction can be used on various areas of the body, this includes the outer thighs, inner thighs, tummy, love handles, upper arms and more. 

Please note that a tumescent liposuction can be  executed under a local anaesthetic as well as general anaesthesia. If you are having a general anaesthetic, please speak to your cosmetic surgery about any questions or concerns you have.

Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction Procedure

The ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) is a cosmetic surgery procedure where the surgeon uses ultrasound to liquefy the fat before it is removed from the treatment area. The procedure still uses a tumescent solution to make the removal of fat cells easier.

Before the ultrasound can be applied on the treatment area, the tumescent solution is injected into the fat cells. The use of tumescent solution during this procedure prevents fluid loss and reduces blood loss during the liposuction procedure.

Laser-assisted liposuction is one of the latest liposuction treatments in Australia. During this procedure, cosmetic surgerys use a small laser fibre to break down the fat. The laser fibre is inserted through the cannula, which is later used to remove the fat from the treatment area and to alter the body shape.

Mega Liposuction

Mega liposuction is one of the cosmetic procedures that is used for obese patients. Even though it cannot be seen as a weight loss treatment, the mega liposuction surgery can give certain patients a head start in their weight loss journey. The treatment is still focussed on body contouring and the removal of unwanted fat, which can make exercise easier for the patient in question. However, patients must still avoid weight gain and continue a healthier lifestyle to maintain the results.

A mega liposuction procedure can remove up to ten litres of fat from a treatment area or several treatment areas. However, the treatment often needs to be performed over the course of multiple sessions, considering the fact that a large amount of fat needs to be removed. Since the treatment can take place over multiple sessions, patients must take this into consideration for their recovery time. 

Which Patients Are Eligible for Liposuction Procedures at the Melbourne Clinic?

Patients who are eligible for liposuction procedures at the Melbourne Clinic range from patients with a normal body mass index to obese patients. The nature of the procedure, its duration and the techniques used during the procedure will be subject to the treatment area and the amount of fat that needs to be removed.

For most liposuction procedures, the patient must have a skin with reasonable elasticity.

What Is The Cost Of Liposuction?

Many patients wonder about liposuction cost. Since the procedure is different for everyone, mainly through the use of different liposuction techniques for certain problem areas, the cost of liposuction can vary considerably. To get an accurate cost-estimate, you can take advantage of the free no-obligation appointment for new patients at The Dr Lanzer Clinic. During this appointment, you can learn more about the various types of liposuction that can be used for fat reduction and the removal of fatty tissue. Of course, you can also discuss the final result you wish to obtain and determine what the procedure will cost.

Discover Liposuction Advantages!

An increasingly large amount of patients now opt for liposuction procedures. If the skin of the patient lacks elasticity, laser liposuction or a liposuction combined with another treatment option may be advised to get a good aesthetic result.

What Do I Need to Know Before Having a Liposuction Procedure?

The first step is a consultation with a surgeon who has a considerable amount of experience with liposuction. During such a consultation, the patient can discover his or her options and find out more about the preparations before the procedure and the aftercare needed once the procedure is performed.

There are some things that need to be mentioned during a consultation with your surgeon. Patients must always convey certain allergies they may be suffering from and must also report any medications they are on. Medications are not only prescribed medications, but also any herbal supplements you may be using at that present time. Medication and allergy information is needed so the surgeon can increase your safety during the surgical procedure.

What Side-Effects Should I Expect After Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure, so patients need to take into account certain side-effects that may occur after a liposuction. The most common side-effects to appear after a surgical procedure are swelling, soreness, bruising and general discomfort.

For the first few weeks after liposuction, the patient must wear a compression garment to maintain the shape of the treated area. The compression garment must be worn at all times, but can be removed if the patient wishes to take a shower.

The patient must also return to the Dr Lanzer Clinic for a follow-up appointment. During this appointment, Dr Lanzer can evaluate how the treated area has healed and the aesthetic results that have been obtained through the procedure.

Patients may contact the Dr Lanzer Clinic with questions relating to their recovery after the procedure. If the patient experiences an abnormal amount of pain or encounters unusual side-effects, the patient should contact the Dr Lanzer Clinic for an emergency appointment as soon as possible.

Are the Results Obtained Through Liposuction of a Long Term Nature?

Results obtained through liposuction can be of a more long term nature, providing the patient maintains a healthy diet and a good exercise routine. If the patient should gain a considerable amount of weight after the procedure, fat may accumulate again and distribute unevenly. While it is unlikely the fat will reappear in the treatment area where the liposuction was performed, fat can accumulate in other locations.

To maximise the results obtained from your liposuction procedure, it is recommended to follow the instructions from The Dr Lanzer Clinic during your downtime. If you have any questions about your recovery, please contact Dr Lanzer or one of his associates.

Does Liposuction Include Any Risks or Serious Complications?

As is the case for all surgical procedures, there is always some degree of risks involved. Liposuction has certain risks and there is a chance of complications. The patient can reduce the risk of complications by following the guidelines provided by Dr Lanzer and his medical team, although this is no absolute guarantee that complications after the procedure will not occur.

Complications that can occur after a liposuction procedure are infection, uneven skin contours and skin colouration. In general, complications are less likely to occur when the procedure is performed by an experienced surgeon with plenty of experience in the field of liposuction. The surgeon will also limit the amount of fat removed during a procedure; this to avoid too lengthy procedures and reduce the risk for the patient.

Any risks of complications that could occur after a procedure will be described in more detail during an appointment at the Dr Lanzer Clinic. Patients who have more concerns regarding this subject are free to contact the Dr Lanzer Clinic for additional information about this topic at any time.

What is Dr Lanzer’s preferred method?

Dr Lanzer explains that the results are mostly determined my his hand eye coordination than the machinery. The real result depends on how much fat is sculptured away and from which level. Microaire is a new devise that helps the surgeon and he finds it useful.

Before having any cosmetic procedure, Dr Lanzer and his associates always recommend seeking a second opinion from another health practitioner. Because fully informed about the treatment and its recovery period is always advised before going ahead with your treatment.
