What is liposuction or liposculpture?

Liposuction, liposculpture or lipectomy refers to a highly effective procedure that helps to eliminate excess fat from areas of the body that do not respond to diet or exercise.

Liposculpture can be performed on almost any area of the body including chin, neckline, back, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, flanks, breasts, arms and other parts. It is good to note that liposculpture is not meant to be a weight-loss technique, but rather a procedure to eliminate excess pockets of fat and create a better proportioned figure.

What are the different types of Liposuction?

The Differences Between Liposuction

Liposuction And Vaser High Definition Liposuction

Both these method use the technology of the ultrasound in order to break down the fatty deposits for removal, with less downtime and pain. These techniques produce smoother and more refined results. The Vaser Liposuction procedure are is for removing fat pockets that are uneven and gives a subtly toned appearance to the body with more softer and subtle lines compared to the results of Vaser High Definition.

Vaser High Definition progresses further when it comes to body sculpting. This technique was developed for those individuals that are in search of a more muscular or athletic appearance. This technique involves the removal of fat from the top and around the groups of muscles. This results in an enhancement in the visibility of the underlying muscles with an ultra-defined result. The candidates that are suitable for this procedure are those that are able to feel their muscles when they contract them and they already have a good, tighter or smooth skin tone. One example of a procedure involving Vaser High Definition can include removing the fat in very small amounts around the ab muscles. This technique can produce the visual appearance of a great six pack.

Vaser Liposuction Explained

Vaser Liposuction is a procedure that is gentle and is in most cases performed using local anaesthetic and light sedation. Once the cosmetic surgeon is able to numb the area around the fat, the ultrasound probe is then inserted underneath the layer of skin in order to soften and dissolve the fat, so that suctioning becomes an easier process. Traditionally, the methods used for liposuction consisted of unrefined methods and separating the fat from the skin was extremely difficult as the fat was in a solid and hard form.

These traditional methods were very painful for the patient with extremely long periods of recovery. Vaser Liposuction uses a process that dissolves the solid fat into a soft, buttery like consistency which makes it far easier to remove in a gentle way. This is due to the high-energy probe in the ultrasound that easily separates the fat layer from the fibrous tissues. The dissolved fat is then easily suctioned out of the body. In addition, the effects of the ultrasound encourage the body to tighten the skin after the treatment that decreases the visual appearance of sagging or dimpled skin.

 

What happens during a Vaser Liposuction procedure?

What Happens During A Vaser Liposuction Procedure?

When preparing for the procedure, the patient is first given a light sedation that is in place of general anaesthesia that is often associated with adverse effects. After the sedation, the surgeon will make small incisions on the area that the fat will be removed from to ensure the anaesthetizing solution to infiltrate underneath the skin. This solution then performs as type of medium for the ultrasound so that it can react in a positive way with the fatty layer.
In order to reduce scarring after the procedure, the incisions will be made in the discrete areas of the body like inside the area of the belly-button or near to the bikini-line for Abdominal Liposuction procedures. Once the anaesthetizing solution is working the ultrasound is then inserted under the skin and will then soften the fat so that it can be removed successfully. The procedure transforms hardened fat into a softer material which facilitates fat removal in a gentle and safer way. In addition, this technique reduces the chances of leaving behinds un-separated clumps of fat. Other benefits of the ultrasound technique involve the natural process of stimulating collagen production that assists with skin tightening which ends up with smoother contours and decreasing the appearance of sagging skin.

Due to the light sedation, the surgeon is able to make his or her patient stand up when necessary or re-positions the patient during the treatment, in order to visually assess the removal of fat from every angle. Directly after liposuction, the patient will be dressed in a compression garment and will be assessed by their surgeon before that will be allowed to go home. The patient will then be required to attend follow-up appointments along with complimentary sessions of Lymphatic Massage to assist with a faster recovery process and to reduce swelling and inflammation.

 

What are the different areas to have liposuction?

Abdominal Liposuction

The area of the stomach is divided into the upper and lower regions. The upper area is positioned from just below the individual’s ribs and end at the area of the belly button, while the lower area falls from the belly button up to the bikini-line. The procedure can be used for one or both areas simultaneously. Even though the procedure promotes skin tightening, some patients will still requires a tummy tuck to combat excessive sagging skin.

Love Handles Liposuction

The flanks that also go by the name of love handles are positioned above the area of the hip bone. To remove the stubborn fat from this area, incisions are typically made in the underwear area.

Thighs and Knees Liposuction

Fat in the areas of the outer and inner thighs can become unevenly distributed and often becomes a source of discomfort. An example of this is when the inner thighs begin to rub together causing chaffing.

Front Of The Thighs

This area is often a complex area to treat. The candidates for this area are those that have mainly fat in this area as many confuse muscle for fat.

Man Boobs and Gynaecomastia

Gynaecomastia more commonly known as man boobs is usually a genetic condition that cannot be removed with exercise. The process of Vaser Liposuction removes the gland and the fat from this area. In some cases some patients may require another session for defined sculpting for the best results.

Face Lift with Liposuction

Certain individuals are predisposed in a genetic way for facial fat that often gives a “chipmunk” appearance. Liposuction such as the Vaser method can sculpt the facial areas for a more slender and toned appearance.

The Buttocks

The majority of adults would love to have a well-proportioned and shapely behind. Often this is not the case due to fat that causes droopy buttocks. While the creation of a smaller behind may be possible with liposuction, a well-proportioned behind requires a surgeon that is skilled at providing symmetric and smooth results.

Muscle Definition

When it comes to defining muscles through liposuction, the process is associated with medicine and art that are combined to produce the perfect looking body. This was once not possible, but Vaser High Definition Liposuction has broken these barriers and uses the method of taking out the fat that surrounds the areas of the muscles providing a more defined athletic or muscular appearance.

 

What is the cost of Liposuction?

The Costs of Liposuction in Melbourne

The cost related to Vaser Liposuction will depend on a variety of factors. There are clinics available such as Skin Club that offer a free consultation on the costs relating to these procedures. Skin Club uses a base-price for a single area chosen for liposuction and then adds on additional charges for other areas.

The base-price is associated with a few factors:

•The method used for liposuction. Vaser liposuction procedures begin at $3,500 for smaller areas and around $5,500 for larger areas. The Vaser High Definition Liposuction begins at about $10,000.

•The next factor is based on the areas that will be treated when treating various areas simultaneously; the patient is able to save on the costs related to theatre and anaesthesia.

•The next variable is associated with how much fat will be removed. This means that the longer the time in surgery the higher the costs will be.

•If the fat is described as fibrous such as people who have already had a liposuction treatment, the procedure will take longer and the price will be higher.

Poorly performed procedures can result in complications. For this reason, it is always advisable to only use a well-known and reputable clinic.

Will liposuction help me control my diabetes level?

Various clinical studies suggest that liposuction provides significant health benefits to people with diabetes, apart from improving the body contour. Removing high volumes of excessive fat stores in the body results in the dropping of the overall body mass index. This enhances the body response to insulin and helps to keep blood sugar levels under control.
