Many people choose liposuction( Liposculture, or Lipoplasty) with Dr Young to treat localized pockets of fat in areas such as the hips, thighs, abdomen, buttocks, and face. This procedure can be a good choice for people who exercise and eat well to stay in shape but are still disappointed with fat deposits that just won’t go away.
Dr Young offers liposculpture that can slim and reshape specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportions. Women and men looking for a slimmer body shape will benefit from the results of liposculpture.
WHAT IS LIPOSCULPTURE?
This is surgery where thin cannulas are used to reduce and shape various body areas, by suctioning excess fat. It is very artistic, hence the name. Dr Young has performed liposcupture for the last 10 years. With extensive training from both plastic surgeons in Australia, USA and Europe.
Liposculpture can be performed anywhere there is excess fat, eg thighs, tummy, arm, saddle bags,and back. Dr Young can also will perform liposculpture on less common areas. The main attraction of this procedure is that is allows the surgeon to remove bothersome, disproportionate, localized fatty deposits through relatively inconspicuous incisions. This procedure has been designed to vacuum away localized, stable fatty deposits, which cannot be controlled by diet and exercise. It is also important to leave fat behind as this will allow shaping.
The Consultation is vital, and a thorough examination of the patient, areas to be treated, the skin tone, and any underlying risk factors that will put the results and patient at risk will be ascertained. It is important that you understand that no person is perfectly symmetrical. If body-contouring surgery is indicated, every attempt will be made during surgery to minimize your side-to-side dissimilarities, but such differences are not due solely to the fatty layer and always persist to some degree, even after the most successful liposuction procedure.
Liposuction is most effective in young, non-obese patients with minor fatty excess and good skin elasticity, as their skin will contract after the fat has been removed.
LIPOSCULPTURE PROCEDURE IS UNDER LOCAL ANAESTHETIC?
The Liposculpture procedure is performed, under various types of anaesthesia, but mostly local anaesthetic, and will usually take between 1-3 hours.
Results are expected to last for years, in a properly motivated patient. It is estimated that 5% of patients treated will require touch-up procedures, which consist of removing remaining or new accumulations of fat. In instances where the skin droops or sags after removal of the fat, surgical excision of the excess skin may be desired and this could leave scars, which would be permanent. As mentioned, re-operating will result in additional fees, as well as require additional time for recovery. The patient will be responsible for all costs associated with secondary surgical procedures.
Aftercare will require shaping garments, for approximately 6 weeks.
