Liposuction Techniques and General Information
Liposuction Techniques and General Information
The Dr Lanzer Clinic is one of the Australian clinics who performs liposuction on a regular basis. Liposuction can be executed with a variety of techniques, so patients often find themselves lost because of the large amount of information. Below, we have listed some of the important information patients must know about Sydney liposuction.
What Is Tumescent Liposuction?
Tumescent liposuction is a procedure where a tumescent solution is used to break down the fat before it is removed from the body. Before the procedure takes place, the cosmetic surgeon introduces a combination of saline solution, anaesthetic, and adrenaline in the treatment area. It treats the fat and then makes it easier to remove.
The tumescent liposuction can be done on various areas of the body, this includes the upper arm, but also other areas such as love handles, thighs, and the abdomen. However, the removal of excess fat from these areas is not a weight loss treatment or solution. It is a body contouring procedure that focuses on restoring the patient’s athletic appearance or natural silhouette. Therefore, most patients choosing liposuction surgery
Arm liposuction is relatively common in Australia and can be done under a local anaesthetic or a general anaesthetic. The procedure can be used to remove fat cells from the arms, but also to remove excess skin. In some cases, the treatment can also deliver an arm lift, which is a cosmetic surgery treatment obtained by patients who lost a considerable amount of weight.
While arm liposuction has evolved considerably over the years, it is important to choose an experienced surgeon for your surgical procedure. The removal of fat deposits is a complex procedure that requires experience and know-how. Fortunately, you can count on The Dr Lanzer Clinic and its experienced cosmetic surgeons who specialise in liposuction.
What Is Dry Liposuction?
Dry liposuction is a technique that is not used often. It is the older version of liposuction. During this procedure, the fat was sucked out of the treatment area without the use of additional fluids. Since the use of fluids is absent, dry liposuction increases the chance of bruising and swelling. Thus, it is no surprise that the procedure is no longer used by most cosmetic surgeons.
What Is Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL)?
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction is a procedure where ultrasound is used to liquefy the fat and make removal a lot easier. The ultrasound is combined with the cannula, making the fat melt upon contact.
A method such as ultrasound-assisted liposuction is often used in fibrous treatment areas; this includes the male chest, back, and treatment areas that have been treated with liposuction in the past.
What Is Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAS)?

Power-assisted liposuction can be combined with other liposuction techniques. It is commonly used for procedures that take a longer period of time to complete; since the procedure takes away some of the physical strain the surgeon experiences during long procedures.

What Is Laser-Assisted Liposuction (LAL)?
A laser-assisted liposuction is a liposuction treatment that combines the use of a laser with tumescent fluid. During the procedure, the cosmetic surgeon will feed a cannula through a small incision (nick). Then, the cosmetic surgeon will use laser energy to break down the fat more thoroughly.
What Happens After a Sydney Liposuction Procedure?
After a liposuction procedure, you will receive guidelines from The Dr Lanzer Clinic on how to take excellent care of the treatment area. Here are some of the main things to remember before you come in for your procedure.
Even though you will be able to leave the clinic shortly after your procedure, it is important to have someone drive you home. The treatment area will be delicate for some time after your treatment and some patients may still experience some side-effects from the anaesthetic.
Many patients will be required to take some medication after their procedure. One of these medications is a course of antibiotics, which will aim to reduce the risk of infections. The cosmetic surgeon can also prescribe some pain medication to manage any discomfort after your treatment.
There are some side-effects patients can encounter after their procedure. Common side-effects experienced after liposuction include minor bruising and swelling. In some cases, the patient can also experience some temporary numbness. In addition, patients can feel faint post liposuction, if the patient feels faint, it is important to lay down and apply a cold compress to the forehead.
