Liposuction, also known as liposculpture, lipoplasty or suction assisted lipectomy, is a body contouring procedure that can slim hips and thighs, flatten stomachs, eliminate double chins and even shape calves and ankles. It’s an extremely popular procedure on account of the combination of simple surgery and great results it offers. Basically, your doctor will make a small incision in the problem area, and suck the excess fat out through a tube. Contrary to popular opinion, liposuction is not a miracle weight loss tool. Instead, it’s used to target particular areas that aren’t responding to exercise or dietary changes, or that tend to store fat. Some of the most popular uses for liposuction include:
- Getting rid of love handles
- Eliminating double chins
- Slimming thighs
- Toning arms, legs and chest as desired
If there’s something in particular that you don’t like about your body, there’s a good chance liposuction can fix it.
The Advantages of Laser Liposuction
At Australia Cosmetic Clinics, we use only the most advanced techniques. In this case that means deploying proprietary laser lipolysis technology that you might not get elsewhere. Traditional liposculpture removes fat from the body with suction. Laser liposuction however actually ruptures and melts fat cells with laser power before removing them. This means it can be sucked out with a substantially narrower tube and requires a much smaller incision, while simultaneously allowing the surgeon more accuracy and finesse to fix problem areas. In addition to this, the laser also causes blood vessels to immediately coagulate on contact, so there’s a lot less bleeding, bruising, swelling and recovery time.
The minimally invasive nature of laser liposuction means the entire procedure can be done painlessly with only local anaesthetic, removing all the potential complications of general anaesthetic as required by traditional liposuction. Laser liposuction is still a new, highly advanced procedure and consequently isn’t offered by everyone. Here at Australia Cosmetic Clinics, however, we’re pleased to offer all the latest technologies, including laser liposuction. When compared with traditional fat suctioning methods, we offer:
- Safer operations without the risks of general anaesthetic
- Quicker recovery times, letting you see the results sooner
- More precise and accurate control over fat removal
- Significantly less scarring
- Greatly reduced bleeding, bruising and swelling
