About Liposuction – Avoid Large Volume Liposuction
Unlike so-called cosmetic surgeons and undertrained doctors, our plastic surgeons believe liposuction should be used to remove small amounts of excess stubborn fat to help improve your body contours. Small Volume Liposuction is also an excellent addition to some cosmetic plastic surgeries like Tummy Tuck, Breast Surgery and Fat Grafting to the Breast.
Liposuction is NOT a solution Weightloss
Please Note that Liposuction is NOT a weight loss procedure and performing large volume liposuction causes many problems. The ideal candidate for Liposuction is near their healthy weight range (BMI < 30).
Liposuction is not an easy answer to managing excess weight. It ideally should be used only for stubborn areas of body fat and small bulges that are hard to shift with diet and exercise changes alone. We strongly encourage you to get fitter and healthier before you consider liposuction body contouring in Melbourne. You may also see a Melbourne Bariatric Surgeon for obesity issues.
Please Send In Your Photos before a Consult
Liposuction is NOT for everyone, perhaps you need excess skin removal or another procedure altogether. Before booking an appointment at Coco Ruby you will need to send in your photos to ensure you are a suitable candidate for Liposuction.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical technique that can help improve your body contours. This is done by removing small amounts of fat from deposits located between the skin and muscle. The first step is to inject a special fluid into the area to make fat reduction easier. Your surgeon will make small incisions to insert a cannula under the skin. Then they will suction out the fat cells.
Although the results of this fat reduction procedure are long term you will still have other remaining fat cells. These can grow and you can still gain weight if you do not maintain both a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Furthermore, there’s research that indicates new fat cells may be created at different stages of life (it is generally, however, believed that fat cells may be quite stable for most of your adult life). Ask your Plastic Surgeon for his opinion and knowledge of this area and do your homework.
You can detrimentally impact your liposuction surgery results if you don’t adhere to a healthy eating regime and regular exercise. Weight gain, medication effects, pregnancy or menopause or andropause can all lead you to gain weight, which will impact your liposuction results. Large Volume Tummy Liposuction can also cause complications, scarring and adhesions which can make further surgery difficult.
