Liposuction Aftercare Explained By The Dr Lanzer Clinic
Here at Dr Lanzer’s, your aftercare is extremely important to us. So, we will always ensure your healing is going well and that we answer any of your questions. We understand the importance of caring for our patients, not only during their time here in the clinic, but once they go home and recover.
Does The Dr Lanzer Clinic Provide A Follow-Up Appointment?
We like to see our patients the following day and this appointment is used to remove dressings, ensure the procedure site looks as expected and to see how you have recovered from your general or local anaesthetic.
We then like to see our patients one week later and often this appointment is used to remove sutures and check bruising and swelling. Two weeks post-procedure is a good time to start to see more of your shape once the initial bruising and swelling is going down. Dr Lanzer will also see you one month and three months post-procedure. If at any stage between these dates you have questions or concerns, we encourage our patients to contact us straight away. Dr Lanzer carries a pager 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We prefer to see our patients in person but understand that this cannot always happen, so we have email and SMS options for sending through photos and messages.
Dr Lanzer understands that providing the best aftercare service possible is essential to patient recovery and eliminates many of the possible complications associated with surgery. All of our interstate patients are added to a specific aftercare list, so that they can be contacted by our nurses on a regular basis. We can provide you with a copy of your before photos and are also able to match these up against your after photos so that you can see the improvement. Dr Lanzer is always interested to follow your progress and ensure your satisfaction with the procedure and care received.
What Is Important About The Case Study Above?
Even though the patient in the above case study was physically active and on her target weight, she experienced problems shedding persistent fat deposits. In some cases, patients can have trouble losing fat despite living a healthy lifestyle, since some areas of fat can be quite persistent. Since this patient was already living a healthy lifestyle, and only had a small amount of fat to lose, she was a good candidate for liposuction.
Even though liposuction removes a certain amount of fat from the body, liposuction should not be considered as a weight loss treatment. The procedure will remove excess fats from the body, but the patient must maintain an active lifestyle with a healthy diet to keep on benefiting from the procedure. If a healthy lifestyle is not maintained after the procedure, persistent fats can return in other locations on the body. Therefore, good candidates for liposuction are usually patients who already live a healthy lifestyle, have a good exercise routine, and are around their target weight. In short, liposuction is used to reshape the body of a patient, not to reduce their overall weight. If you believe you might be eligible for this form of surgery, please contact The Dr Lanzer Clinic for a consultation with Dr Lanzer.
Removing fat cells requires a surgical procedure, so it is essential that patients are in good general health. If you suffer from any medical conditions, please mention this during your consultation. While it does not exclude you from the procedure necessarily, it must be mentioned to reduce some of the side-effects experience post-surgery and to rule out possible complications certain medical conditions could cause.
Where Can I View Liposuction For Women Before And After Photos?
Our liposuction for women before and after photos are available in our case studies section. By looking at our liposuction for women before and after photographs, you can get a better idea of the results that can be obtained through the procedure. It also gives you a better idea about the healing process, as most photographs in the liposuction for women before and after photos section are taken only weeks apart.
Please note that the liposuction for women before and after photos can vary in light, contrast, clothing, background, distance, and other variables. While you can evaluate the natural results from the procedure the surgeon has executed, these variables must be considered when you evaluate the good results obtained from Dr Lanzer’s procedures.
Are There Different Types Of Liposuction?
Yes, various techniques can be used to execute a liposuction procedure. Surgeons can use ultrasound assisted liposuction to liquefy the fat first or use a tumescent technique to prepare the fat before removal.
