Liposuction Surgery in Melbourne

Eliminate your unwanted fat now!

Removing stubborn fat deposits around your thighs, flanks, abdomen, chest, and buttocks can be a highly frustrating process. Even adhering to a healthy diet and vigorous workout routine will not remove those stubborn fat cells. At SKIN CLUB, our highly skilled cosmetic doctors offer consultations for advanced liposuction procedures in Melbourne.

At SKIN CLUB – Cosmetic Doctors, we prefer the term ‘liposculpture,’ as our focus is not just to remove unwanted body fat, but to sculpt and contour your body to the best possible proportions. Our cosmetic surgeons are well trained in all aspects of liposculpture including the surgical and non-surgical procedures, to acheive a body shape that looks sleek and naturally toned. 

Liposuction is a  fat removal procedure from specific body areas used in cosmetic surgery to leave a more defined shape. It is also known as “lipo”, liposculpture or suction-assisted lipectomy.

As experts in body shaping liposuction for both men and women, we will be advising you on the best liposuction options according to your ideal shape: Surgical Liposuction, Vaser Lipo, VASER Hi-Def, Vaser Mid-Def or Micro Lipo.

Common areas that can be treated with liposuction surgery include;

  • Chin / Neck
  • Upper Arms
  • Back
  • Male Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Hips and Buttocks
  • Inner and Outer Thighs
  • Knees

The Different Types of Liposuction 

1. Vaser Liposuction

Vaser Lipo is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure that targets and breaks down small pockets of fat without affecting surrounding tissue. It aims to remove stubborn fat pockets that are disproportionate to the rest of your body that will be removed using small cannulas and suction. 

2. Vaser Hi-Def

Vaser Hi-Def liposuction is an advanced method of body contouring to sculpt and define muscles for a more athletic appearance. It works by removing superficial and deep layers of fat, leaving only a  thin layer of fat over underlying muscles to highlight the increased visibility of toned muscles. 

3. Vaser Mid-Def

Vaser Mid-Def offers patients a more subtle result on the midsection of the body. It aims to enhance the muscles that are already there by sculpting around your muscles. Only a selection of fat surrounding the muscles are removed to bring out definition and shadow for a softer finish. 

4. Vaser 4D

Vaser 4D is a specialised and advanced body sculpture that transforms and improves the body permanently. Similar to Vaser Hi-Def, it removes fat, defines underlying muscles and improves proportions but goes one step further by following the muscle’s natural movement.

5. Vaser 360

Vaser 360 is a quick and effective technique used for contouring the thighs, lower buttocks, thighs, upper legs and knees. It allows for a balanced and smooth finish to the thighs and legs in all directions 

6. Micro Lipo

Micro-liposuction is a new method that uses a combination of tiny incisions and cannulas (0.9mm to 3mm wide) to extract fat. It can remove up to 3.5 litres of fat found in bingo wings/ arm fat, inner thighs and knees that can’t be addressed through diet or exercise.

7. Surgical Liposuction 

Surgical Liposuction or the Traditional Liposuction is usually performed under general anaesthetic and sometimes with sedation. The surgeon makes a small incision in the area being treated to insert a as a cannula or a micro cannula. The cannula is attached to the vacuum device that breaks up and “sucks” fat from the body.

    Frequently asked questions

    What is Liposuction or Liposculture?

    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. However, Liposuction is not a weight-loss technique, but rather a procedure to eliminate excess pockets of fat and create a better proportioned figure.

    What happens during a Liposuction procedure?

    First a local anaesthetic will be injected into the areas being treated and sedation will be applied if required. Small micro-incisions will then be made close to the areas that are being treated and tumescent fluid will be injected in to expand the tissue layer. A small probe is then inserted that emits ultrasonic energy which selectively breaks apart the fatty tissue on contact. A small cannula is then used which removes the fat with a gentle suction device in a back-and-forth motion. After the procedure, the incisions are closed and a compression garment is placed on. 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.
