Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures in Australia. At Verve Cosmetic Clinic, we offer a specialised process called liposculpture that uses state of the art equipment and advanced technology to create the best possible results for our customers.
It is common to have stubborn fat on certain areas of the body, which can be difficult to get rid of even with a healthy diet and regular exercise. But, liposculpture can remove excess tissue to transform your figure and achieve a slimmer contour. This can help you to feel confident and rejuvenated with an overall younger and healthier appearance in little time.
What Happens during Liposuction?
Liposuction is a simple low-risk procedure that involves using small tubes or an instrument called a cannula to remove the excess fat tissue from the body. The cannulas are inserted through incisions that are made into the skin of the are being treated. There is then suction that is used to encourage the fat tissue to be removed from underneath the skin and this process continues until all of the excess fat tissue is disposed of for the expected results.
There should be no permanent scars left by this liposuction procedure and the results are permanent. Liposuction can last anywhere from 60 minutes to three hours and it will depend on where and how much fat tissue is to be removed how long your procedure will last. You will be able to gain a better idea of what you can expect during your consultation at Verve Cosmetic Clinic.
Does Liposuction Hurt?
The liposuction procedure is painless for the client since an anaesthetic is administered before treatment begins. Every effort is made to make sure that clients are comfortable at Verve Cosmetic Clinic before the procedure starts.
Are there any Side Effects from Liposuction?
Patients can experience some bruising and slight swelling after the liposuction procedure. But, these side effects are not expected to last long. In addition, there may be some soreness around the incision areas, but this should fade on its own within a few weeks.
Is there any Downtime Associated with Liposuction?
You should be prepared to take around one or two weeks off work for recovery. In addition, you should avoid strenuous exercise for a couple of weeks so that your body can heal and return to normal without any complications. You will be required to wear an elastic body garment after having liposuction. This should be worn for a number of weeks and will aid with proper recovery and reduce the risk of loose skin developing from receiving the treatment.
Who are Suitable Candidates for Liposuction?
Candidates for liposuction should be an average weight and of good health, as well as looking to remove some excess fat on the body. It is important to point out that this procedure is to remove localised fat tissue and should not be used as a replacement for a healthy diet and regular exercise.
If you are older and cannot easily lose weight or your body has not returned to normal after life changing events such as pregnancy, you can consider liposuction. Excess fat tissue can be removed from the abdomen, hips, buttocks, back, legs, face and neck. This treatment will not remove cellulite and cannot get rid of any loose skin. It is also important to note that if you gain weight after the procedure, you can undo the successful results of liposuction.
