When you look good, you feel good. Feeling like you are in the best shape you can possibly be is important not only to women, but to men as well. Often, men can have some problem areas that no matter how hard they try, they are unable to lose. If you would like to remove stubborn fat deposits that don’t respond to diet and exercise, Liposuction Surgery (also known as Liposculpture) at Sydney’s Eden Institute can help.
Liposuction involves making small incisions in the affected area and using a small thin tube(cannula) to dislodge and suction out fat deposits. After surgery, you may need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks for support and to reduce swelling and bruising.
Because the incisions are so small, and usually hidden in the body’s natural creases, they should heal to become barely visible. After several months, swelling should fully subside, revealing your slimmer, firmer contours.
Liposuction is suitable for your face, upper arms, chest, abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles. Dr Edinburg will only recommend Liposuction if he feels it is right for you and will tailor an individual cosmetic surgery solution to suit you, which may be combined with other procedures for optimum body contouring results.
Dr Edinburg has found that it is essential that only appropriate liposuction is done. Best results are achieved in localised areas– general obesity cannot be suitably treated with liposuction. In other words, careful assessment is very important. In addition, a careful plan of where to perform the liposuction is essential in order to achieve a natural, enhanced effect.
Liposuction is best for patients who are in good health and who are not obese, but have localised areas of accumulated fat. It is also important that you have realistic expectations of what Liposuction Surgery can and cannot achieve. This is just one of the reasons why we book a long consultation for you with our specialist plastic surgeon, Dr Edinburg. This allows him to spend the time needed to assess and plan with you how best to proceed. At the Eden Institute, every treatment is individualized, as no two patients require exactly the same procedure. This is very evident when it comes to Liposuction Surgery as no two patients ever have exactly the same presenting concern.
Liposuction Surgery can take from 1 to 3 hours.
Depending on the procedure you require, Liposuction may be done under local or general anaesthetic.
Liposuction is done in hospital as a day-stay or overnight procedure.
Recovery normally takes1 to 3 weeks, depending on the extent of your procedure. Liposuction is a highly individualised form of surgery. The best way to determine what will give you the best results is to have a consultation with Dr Edinburg, who will help you plan the most appropriate surgery for you.
Cost will depend on the method and extent of surgery, but prices start from $2200 (surgeon's fee only) for smaller areas such as chin or knees, and from $4,400 (surgeon's fee only) for larger areas.
