All About Liposuction
Liposuction involves the removal of excess fat from specific areas of the body. Often used to reduce bulges of fat that have remained following exercise and dieting, the procedure can help to remove deep subcutaneous fat around the midsection, the neck, face, arms, legs or other extremities.
We have worked hard to be able to offer an affordable price so patients do feel pressured to visit under qualified practices or destination surgery. Our Liposuction surgery includes surgeons fee, hospital fee, and general anaesthetic costs.
Liposuction– From $8,000
The incision locations and sizes are determined by where excess fat is being removed, using a suction cannula. Modern techniques allow for large volume removal, with the length of the procedure being determined by how much excess fat will be removed and are performed under general anesthetic. There are two methods of liposuction that can be utilised, depending on your needs.
Tumescent technique involves the injection of large quantities of fluid into the fat layer. The fluid is then removed along with excess fat using a cannula.
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction utilises ultrasonic energy, with vibrations disrupting fat cell membranes and liquifying fat tissue, which is then removed through suction.
What are the risks?
Aside from generalised pain, discomfort and local bleeding, the specific risks associated with liposuction include blood and fluid collecting under the skin, uneven contouring, loss of sensation or a feeling of numbness. The remaining surgical scars can sometimes be raised, tender, itchy or pink. These will normally fade over time. If you are concerned about possible complications, be sure to discuss them with your surgeon.
