Knee Liposuction Surgery in Melbourne

Knees can store many fat deposits around the knee caps which can be a result of weight gain, skin laxity & genetics. Once fat collects in this region, it creates a fold around knee caps and it can be difficult to remove even after exercising and dieting and can give a thickened look to the legs.

Vaser Liposuction is an effective way to remove the stubborn fat deposited around the knees providing a more contoured look to the knees whilst changing the overall look of the legs. It is a body contouring procedure performed under local anaesthetic that uses ultrasound technology to target and break down the fat cells and to remove them.

Micro Liposuction is another option that is available to remove the excess fat and tissue around the knees as this procedure is ideal to target smaller areas of the body. Its main difference from the Vaser Liposuction method is that it uses smaller cannulas about 0.9mm wide and the largest 3mm which means modest amounts of fat will be taken out (less than 100mls).

The Procedure

The surgeon will start by marking the areas that will be treated while you are standing and will be asked to lie on the bed during the application of local anaesthetics. Sedation will depend on you and your cosmetic surgeon’s discussion during your initial consultation. Micro incisions will be made around the areas of treatment and a small probe that emits ultrasound energy is inserted to locate and break down the fat. A small cannula is also used to gently sunction and remove the excess fat. A compression garment is required once the procedure is finished.

    Frequently asked questions

    When will I see the results?

    Patients are able to see the results right after the procedure; however, it takes a 5-6 week period for the swelling to settle and the final result to be revealed.

    What does the recovery phase involve?

    The downtime after Vaser Liposuction on the knees is quick. You may be recommended to take up to 2-5 days off work. Any light exercises will be held off for a minimum period of 2 weeks while strenuous activities will have to wait around 4-5 weeks. 

    For Micro-liposuction the downtime is less so patients can get back to their day to day activities almost immediately. Some can resume work within 48 hours and start exercising after 7 days after the procedure.
