Liposuction is a surgical procedure that can remove a certain amount of fat from a specific treatment area. Many patients want to take advantage of liposuction Sydney Clinic because of the various techniques that can be used at our liposuction Sydney clinic and to have the procedure performed by one of Australia’s leading cosmetic surgeons – Dr Daniel Lanzer. To learn more about liposuction at the Sydney Clinic and to get some general information about the procedure, please read our information below.

Which Patients Could Benefit from Liposuction Sydney Clinic?

Patients choosing liposuction at the Sydney Clinic usually have a stable body weight and are on or around their target weight. The aim for these patients is the removal of persistent fat deposits in specific parts of the body, where fats have been distributing unevenly.

Please note that liposuction Sydney Clinic is not an overall weight loss method and therefore not a solution for obesity. The treatment is not meant for the removal of stretch marks, cellulite or dimples, although laser can be used to diminish their appearance. The primary goal of liposuction is changing or enhancing the contours of the body and give the patient a fitter appearance.

Which Patients Are Good Candidates for Liposuction?

The best candidates for liposuction are patients who have obtained their ideal weight through diet and exercise, but are still struggling with persistent fat deposits or unevenly distributed fat that cannot be removed by diet and exercise alone. However, in some cases, a good patient for liposuction is a patient that struggles with overweight, providing the patient is willing to maintain a healthy lifestyle after the procedure. The mega liposuction is a procedure that can give these patients something to start off their weight loss journey. Even though mega liposuction is not meant as a tool to reach your target weight, it can take some of the original weight off.

What Is the Basic Principle of Liposuction?

The basic principle of liposuction is the more long term removal of fat cells from a specific treatment area on the body. The removal of these fat cells can lead to an alteration in the aesthetic appearance of the body.

In order for liposuction to be successful, the patient must maintain a healthy diet and a good exercise routine. Not maintaining a healthy lifestyle after the procedure can cause remaining fat cells to expand and uneven fat distribution could occur again. Even though it is unlikely for fat to return to the treated area, it is not totally out of the question when the patient is not maintaining his or her healthy lifestyle.

During liposuction, the surgeon can only remove a certain amount of fat. Unrealistic amounts of fat would make the procedure unsafe and would increase the risk for the patient tremendously. That being said, any surgical procedure is accompanied with some degree of risk and there is always a chance of complications. Complications that may occur as a result of a liposuction procedure are infection, numbness and scarring of the treated area. The amount of risk and the chance of complications is also connected to the amount of fat that is removed during the procedure. The more fat removed during the procedure, the higher the risk for the patient.

Can Liposuction Be a Treatment for Certain Medical Conditions?

There are certain medical conditions that may cause uneven or excess fat distribution in certain parts of the body. Below, you can find an overview of conditions where liposuction could be used as a treatment option.

– Lipomas: a lipoma is a fatty lump that grows underneath the skin. The problem can occur in any part of the body that has fat cells, but is most common in areas such as the shoulders, chest, arms, neck, back, buttocks and thighs.

– Gynecomastia: gynecomastia is a condition where a man’s breasts become enlarged. The problem can be caused by hormonal imbalances as well as obesity.

– Lipodystrophy syndrome: the lipodystrophy syndrome is a condition caused by a problem with the metabolism. Patients suffering from this condition causes a pile up of fat in certain parts of the body and a shortage of fat in other parts. The condition can also be a side-effect of HIV medication.

What Should I Do Before the Procedure?

At least ten days before the procedure, the patient must avoid certain medications that could cause complications during a surgical procedure. Medications such as aspirin and inflammatory medications should always be reported to the medical team and should be avoided before the procedure. Patients should also mention any supplements they are taking, including vitamin E and homeopathic remedies.

Patients suffering from anaemia may have to take iron supplement for a certain period of time before the procedure takes place. A lack of iron can have a negative impact on your recovery process, but could also cause complications during the surgery. If you have suffered from anaemia or an iron-deficiency in the past, be sure to report this to the medical team at the liposuction Sydney clinic.

The patient must also sign a consent form before the procedure takes place. The consent form is meant as a confirmation, more specifically a confirmation that the patient understands the risks that accompany the procedure he or she is going to have.

What Is the Background of Liposuction?

Liposuction was invented by two Italian surgeons by the name of Giorgio and Arpad Fischer, who revealed the procedure to the world in 1974. Even though traces of liposuction can be dated back to the 1920’s, the actual liposuction procedure would not become available until fifty years later.

The first type of modern liposuction did not become available until 1982. It was introduced by a French surgeon called doctor Yves-Gerard Illouz. The procedure was originally referred to as the Illouz method and was executed by means of suction-assisted lipolysis.

In 1985, the tumescent technique was introduced by doctors Alan Klein and Patrick Lilis, which introduced the use of large volumes of liquid and a local anaesthetic during the procedure. Several years after that, the ultrasound-assisted liposuction procedure was introduced.
