Your Liposuction Questions Answered
Even though liposuction Perth is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures these days, many prospective patients have loads of questions when it comes to liposuction. Information is key before you have this procedure, so the Dr Lanzer Clinic aims to get all of its patients’ questions answered.
Below, you can find an overview of the most frequently asked questions regarding liposuction. If you want more information before you initial consultation at the Dr Lanzer Clinic, please read the info made available to you by our team below.
How Does Liposuction Perth Work?
During a liposuction procedure, a cosmetic surgery will remove excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body; this could help patients who suffer from an accumulation of fat in a certain area, which will not disappear with a good diet and plenty of exercise.
A balanced diet and exercise are important to maintain good health. However, sometimes patients encounter persistent fat deposits that just won’t shift; this can be in areas such as the abdomen, hips, and thighs. Since such problems could be down to genetics, a liposuction procedure could provide a solution.
Can I Get Liposuction to Lose Weight?
This is a common misconception about liposuction. Having a liposuction procedure does not necessarily mean you will lose weight, nor is the treatment a weight loss solution. The procedure is aimed at removing “persistent” fats, which do not budge with a healthy diet or exercise.
There is however, a procedure called mega liposuction. Even though this procedure is not a weight loss solution, it can give patients a kick-start for their new healthy lifestyle. During this procedure, the surgeon will remove a larger quantity of fat, creating a dramatic change in body shape. Of course, patients are required to maintain healthy eating habits and exercise regularly after this treatment. Thus, patients can also count on our nutritionist, who can help you adjust to your new healthy lifestyle.

Does Medicare Cover Liposuction?
The large majority of liposuction procedures are cosmetic in nature; this means they are meant to change the appearance of the treatment area, opposed to providing a solution to a medical problem. Thus, most liposuction Perth procedures are not covered by Medicare.
There is a small portion of liposuction procedures that could be covered by Medicare; this can be the case when liposuction will be a treatment for a medical problem such as gynaecomastia. However, to have your procedure covered by Medicare, you must meet certain criteria. More information about this can be obtained at Medicare.
Is Liposuction a Dangerous Procedure?
Even though liposuction is a common procedure that is executed daily around the world, there are always risks involved with having a surgical procedure. Cosmetic surgeons will aim to reduce these risks by providing the most advanced treatments. However, this does not mean that all risks can be eliminated.
Before you have your liposuction procedure, it is important to be fully informed about the risks; this can be done by reading through the information available on our website or by reading the consent form that you will be given before your treatment. If you have any questions or concerns about the risks, be sure to convey them to your cosmetic surgery or physician.
While liposuction does include some degree of risk, we must mention that choosing an experienced surgeon can reduce some of the complications that could occur during the treatment.

In fact, Dr Lanzer is one of the surgeons who has given seminars about the safety of liposuction procedures. So, by choosing Dr Lanzer as your surgeon, you will be in capable hands.
Is Liposuction a Painful Procedure?
Liposuction procedures are executed under a local or a general anaesthetic, so patient will not experience any pain during the procedure itself. However, the patient can experience discomfort after the procedure; this is a common occurrence and a part of the natural healing process.
To manage any pain patients may experience post-treatment, Dr Lanzer will prescribe some pain management medication. In addition to that, patients will also be required to take some medication to prevent infection after their treatment. It is important that this medication is taken as directed by the Dr Lanzer Clinic.
