Mega Liposuction Patient Information
Mega Liposuction Patient Information
The mega liposuction is a specific type of liposuction procedure. The procedure removes large quantities of fat and is therefore aimed at patients who want to kick-start a healthier lifestyle or weight loss journey. To learn more about the mega liposuction, please read the information provided by the Dr Lanzer Clinic.
How Much Fat Is Removed During a Mega Liposuction?
A cosmetic surgery can remove over ten litres of fat during a liposuction. However, to remove such a large quantity of fat safely, a few sessions are usually required. Of course, some patients only require on session depending on the amount of fat to be removed.
An average mega liposuction session can remove up to five litres of fat. Thus, patients who need excess of ten litres of fat removed will require two sessions at the Dr Lanzer Clinic. To determine the amount of fat to be removed, patients must have a consultation with Dr Lanzer.
Is Mega Liposuction Suitable for Weight Loss?
Even though large quantities of fat are removed during a mega liposuction, the procedure should not be seen as a weight loss solution. Instead, the procedure is meant to kick-start a healthier lifestyle.
Patients who are significantly overweight can benefit from the treatment, since patients up to 120 kilograms can have this procedure done. However, the patient is expected to maintain a healthy lifestyle post-surgery; this includes maintaining a balanced diet as well as enjoying regular exercise.
To help patients with their lifestyle changes, patients can count on the services of the dietician at the Dr Lanzer Clinic, who can be consulted before and after your mega liposuction. With the help of our dietician, you can implement the necessary changes and enjoy success during your weight loss journey.

How Much Does a Mega Liposuction Cost?
Much like other liposuction procedures, the cost of mega liposuction is variable. The price of your treatment can be influenced by factors such as amount of fat to be removed, the complexity of the procedure, the experience of your surgeon, and more.
To get the best price estimate for your mega liposuction, it is always recommended to obtain the estimate directly from your cosmetic surgery. At the Dr Lanzer Clinic, patients can benefit from a free initial consultation, during which such an estimate can be obtained. Of course, patients are not obligated to go ahead with the mega liposuction by taking advantage of this free appointment.
What Are the Main Benefits of Mega Liposuction?
Weight loss is not the treatment goal of mega liposuction. Instead, it paves the way towards a healthier lifestyle for patients who are significantly overweight. Patients can find that it is easier to exercise and most patients also experience an increase in energy.
Please note that the recovery time shortly after the procedure prohibits patients from doing any strenuous exercise. While light walking is recommended, heavy exercise and activities should be avoided until the patient has healed sufficiently after their procedure.
Even though patients will experience a difference in body size and shape after the procedure, the actual results from the treatment are usually not visible until side-effects such as bruising and swelling have subsided. Therefore, most patients can only evaluate the results obtained from a mega liposuction several months after the procedure.
How Is Mega Liposuction Performed?
During a mega liposuction, the cosmetic surgery will target problem areas; these are areas where there is a large accumulation of fat. Common areas where this may occur include the abdomen, arms, and thighs.
Before the procedure starts, the treatment area will be filled with so-called tumescent fluid; this is a solution that contains saline and an anaesthetic. Due to the nature of this fluid, some liposuction procedures can be executed under a local anaesthetic. Of course, many mega liposuction procedures are still executed under general anaesthetic.
The tumescent fluid can reduce bleeding during the treatment, but it also prepares the fat cells for easier removal. Once the fluid has worked on the fat cells, the surgeon will insert a small cannula in the treatment area and remove the fat through suction.
Even though patients will not experience any pain during their procedure, patients should expect some mild discomfort and side-effects after their treatment. Pain is usually managed with medication prescribed by Dr Lanzer. Patients will also be required to take medication to prevent infection.
Once you leave the clinic, it is important to follow the post-operative instructions you have received from the Dr Lanzer Clinic. By following these guidelines, you can maximise the healing process and reduce the chance of complications.
