At Liposuction Australia, we want you to think of ‘lipo’ more as a sculpting procedure that can change the contours of your body or face to achieve desired results. We understand that a sensible diet and vigorous exercise doesn’t always shift stubborn areas of fat. By removing fat and reducing the overall number of fat cells, liposuction contours the body into the required shape.
The cost of liposuction will vary depending on your size and the areas of the body you choose to have liposuction. We can remove fat from several areas of the body at one time, or you can choose to have several procedures over time. This is called ‘staging’. The areas of the body we treat include hips, stomach, waist, love handles, buttocks, thighs, lower legs and knees, midriff, as well as areas of the face, neck and arms. If you'd like to check prices of Liposuction go to our Options for Women or Options for Men pages. From here you can click on a price to see which area will be treated.
You are also able to utilise the fat removed and have it transferred into areas you would like to plump up. This procedure is called Fat Transfer. As you’re using your own cells, this procedure has effectively eliminated the chance of rejection or allergic reaction.
At Liposuction Australia, we use the Tumescent technique of local (regional) anaesthesia, which does not require a general anesthetic and will typically allow you to be back at work within 1-3 days. Tiny incisions that normally won’t require stitches allow fine hollow sterile cannulas to suction the fat out. It is a safe and effective method of fat removal from a team of highly skilled medical staff.
In nearly all cases, the fat cells removed do not regenerate, and contour improvement from liposuction will be permanent. If you gain weight, the fat cells that are left behind will get bigger, just as all of the other fat cells in the body do, but your body should retain the improved proportions. The liposuction areas can never become as fat as they once were, (relative to the rest of the body), because fat cells have been permanently removed. This is the key point about the results achieved by liposuction, and explains why it is also called body contouring or body sculpting. *Please note that Liposuction Australia would like to advise that any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner."
