How Is A Leg Liposuction In Sydney Performed?
During a leg liposuction treatment, the surgeon will use tiny cuts or incisions to gain access to a certain treatment area. The surgeon uses a specialised instrument called a cannula and moves it through the incision to gain access to the fat cells. Excess fat is then removed through the cannula via suction.
We must mention that there are different types of liposuction available these days. The procedure can be executed with a tumescent solution, which breaks down the fat cells before they are removed. It can also be performed by laser, a device that liquefies the fat cells for removal.
What Happens Before A Liposuction Procedure?
To determine which type of liposuction is most suitable for your needs, you will need to attend a consultation with your cosmetic surgery. During this consultation, the cosmetic surgery will discuss what to expect from the treatment and propose a treatment route that enables you to reach that goal.
In addition to determining the best treatment route for your liposuction, the cosmetic surgery will give you more information about the procedure itself. During this time, he will also explain some of the risks that commonly accompany the procedure.
Before a cosmetic surgery can determine your eligibility for the procedure, he must evaluate some additional aspects relating to your health. The surgeon may look at your medical history and request a blood test as well as a full physical before he can sign off on the surgery.
During your initial consultation with the cosmetic surgery, it is important to report any medications you are taking at that time. Some medications can influence the cosmetic procedure, while others can influence your recovery process. Certain medications such as thyroid medication and antidepressants may have to be stopped before the procedure takes place. In some cases, the cosmetic surgery could recommend an alternative.

What Happens After My Liposuction Procedure?
Before you can leave the clinic, you must be checked by the cosmetic surgery; this will ensure that it is safe for you to leave and that no complications have arisen from your procedure. In most cases of liposuction, the surgeon will give the patient a compression garment, which must be worn for several weeks after liposuction.
Most patients are observed for some time after their liposuction before they can leave the clinic. We also suggest that someone drives you home after your treatment; this since the anaesthetic can still influence a patient after the procedure has been completed.
Some patients will require medication after their liposuction procedure; these medications may include antibiotics to prevent infection and some pain medication for pain management.
As a side-effect of liposuction, some patients may experience some dizziness shortly after the treatment. It usually happens when the patient takes off the compression garment for the first time, or when the patient uses the restroom. Because of this, we advise to have some company nearby for the first twenty-four hours after your treatment.
Do I Need To Return To The Day Surgery After My Liposuction?
Patients will be required to return to the clinic for a follow-up appointment. In some cases, this can be several follow-up appointments. During your follow-up appointments, your cosmetic surgery will evaluate your results and look out for signs of complications. Your surgeon can also provide you with some advice on your recovery process if it is required.
For their recovery process, patients will receive some additional advice and information from The Dr Lanzer Clinic. It is vital that patients follow these instructions; this can enhance the obtained final results as well as reduce the chance of complications. However, if you have any concerns or questions outside of your follow-up appointments, you are more than welcome to book an additional consultation at The Dr Lanzer Clinic.
Please note that patients must maintain a good diet and exercise routine after their liposuction; this will prevent the pockets of fat from accumulating in another area. If you need any assistance post-treatment, you can also count on our dietician.
Can I Get Liposuction If I’m Overweight?
Weight loss will always be our first recommendation, especially if there is a large amount of fat. That being said, we do offer a mega liposuction, which can kick start a healthier lifestyle.
Liposuction and body contouring can be done on various areas on the body. It can be done on areas that are prone to fat accumulation such as the thighs and abdomen, but also on the calves and ankles.
As a patient, you can also store fat for later use. When a surgeon removes fat, you get the option to store it in our fat bank. The harvested fat can later be used as a rejuvenation treatment, but also to alter the shape of the body.
