What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure where localized fat is broken up and sucked out of the body.  Liposuction is performed by making small incisions in the body in order to insert a thin tube, or cannula, through the incision into localized fat deposits between the skin and muscle of the patient. A suction pump or syringe is then used to suck out localized fat deposits.

What is the recovery time after Liposuction?

Recovery time after liposuction is usually one to two weeks, depending on the area of the body and the amount of localized fat sucked out.  You will see the end results of Liposuction within one to four months after the procedure.

Is Liposuction Painful?

Liposuction is painful but most surgeons perform the procedure under general anaesthesia to ensure that patients don’t feel pain. They also prescribe painkillers for relieving pain after surgery.

Is Liposuction Permanent?

The liposuction procedure permanently removes localized fat. The patient’s body will retain its contour after liposuction, provided the patient does not gain weight.

What is Non-Surgical Liposuction?

Liposuction procedures that do not use injections or incisions are called non-surgical liposuction procedures. These procedures are performed using laser energy, ultrasound, cryotherapy or radiofrequency.

Liposuction Recovery Tips?

Following the doctor’s post-procedure instructions helps patients to recover quickly and effectively after a liposuction procedure. These will include taking sufficient rest, taking prescribed anti-biotics and pain-killers and wearing compression garments correctly. The patient should also start moving as soon as possible to prevent blood clots but should avoid strenuous activities for at least a month.

Liposuction  
Tumescent liposuction is a liposuction technique which has been specially developed by cosmetic dermatologists. Tumescent liposuction is performed entirely under local anaesthetic and is recognised as the safest form of liposuction. The objective is to improve body contours by removing unwanted fat in a very careful manner. The small cannulas used also give the best results. What is Tumescent Liposuction? The word tumescent means swollen and firm. Tumescent liposuction relies on large volumes of saline solution, local anaesthetic, and adrenaline being infiltrated into the fatty areas. These areas then become swollen and firm. This state enables the surgeon to insert a small instrument called a cannula through tiny incisions in order to remove unwanted fatty deposits so as to create an attractive body contour. What areas can be treated by liposuction? Lateral thighs (saddle bags) and buttocks Medial thighs (friction sites) and knees Upper and lower abdomen (tummy) Thickened calves and ankles Male flanks and waist (love handles)Back and upper back (buffalo hump) Enlarged male breasts Female hips and waist Upper arms Chin, cheeks and neck Who is a good candidate for liposuction surgery? Anybody can have tumescent liposuction but the best candidates are relatively fit individuals who exercise regulary and are of normal body weight or slightly over weight and who have body contours which are out of proportion. Patients who are significantly overweight can still be good candidates for liposuction to some body areas. It is important to have realistic expectations and positive attitude. Age is not significant factor. Patients should be in good general health, but tumescent liposuction is a very safe technique and can be under taken despite some medical conditions

Rating from 4 Reviews Years of experience and he genuinely cares. Thanks again doctor you have changed my life foreverTrish, New Zealand, 22 05 18

5 stars. He is truthful and honest. When looking for a surgeon, for an Abdominoplasty, Stewart was the only one who had advised 2 nights in Hospital, the others were all 1 night, which would not have been enough! Absolutely fantastic result and a pleasant experience. His rates are really good, significantly less than you might expect, compared to others. Years of experience and he genuinely cares. Thanks again Stewart you have changed my life forever. The clinic is lovely and a nice view while waiting. Robyn his assistant is relaxed and efficient. Living in Nelson, I had pretty much decided after reading the Website and speaking to Robyn, that this was the Surgeon for me. After meeting in person, we confirmed the operation date. Everything was easy. Private Hospital was, of course fabulous, what a way to recover. Thank you, Trish.
