Liposuction

Liposuction helps sculpt the body and create natural contours by removing unwanted and stubborn fatty deposits from specific areas of the body
Dr Scott Turner, Specialist Plastic Surgeon

Liposuction is a very popular, safe cosmetic procedure that works to remove stubborn, diet-resistant localised fatty deposits beneath the skin. Virtually any area of fat accumulation can be treated with to restore a slim, contoured profile and provide men or women with youthful, natural-looking results.

Quick Facts

Anesthesia: General Anaesthesia
In/Outpatient: Day Surgery in Private Hospital
Length of surgery: 1 – 3 hours depending on how many areas
Recovery: Most patients are back to work in approximately 7 days. They can resume light exercise at 4 weeks and more high intensity exercise at 6 weeks.
Results: Final results are seen within 6 months, and the duration of those results vary from one person to another

WHAT CAN A LIPOSUCTION DO FOR ME?

Liposuction can be used as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with other surgical procedures such as breast lift, breast reduction, tummy tuck and fat grafting to enhance your body’s natural curves.

It is NOT an alternative to dieting, nor a treatment for obesity. Consider it a ‘reshaping’ tool, not a weight loss treatment.

Some of the many benefits of liposuction include:

• Remove stubborn and unwanted fat from specified areas
• Re-shape and smooth existing contours
• Sculpt new curves

Cellulite will not be improved by liposuction (and potentially make them worse) nor will it remove stretch marks.

Am I Suitable?

Good candidates include healthy men and women of normal weight with good skin tone and elasticity with realistic expectations. You may have concentrated pockets of fat stubbornly resistant to weight loss that harm your body shape. Or you may have achieved maximum possible results with healthy diet and exercise.

Your Liposuction Consultation

Your cosmetic liposuction surgery consultation begins with a personal one on one consultation with Dr Turner at one of his Sydney clinics. Firstly you are fully informed of the normal surgery process, plus possible complications (quite rare). After discussing your medical history and procedure goals, Dr Scott Turner conducts a thorough examination to assess you as a good surgical candidate.

During the consultation Dr Turner will assess the quality of your skin tone (elasticity), presence of cellulite or stretch marks, distribution of fat deposits and routine pre-op photographs are taken. Finally, Dr Turner will provide you with a detailed discussion of which of the various techniques will be used during your to achieve your goals.

There are a variety of liposuction techniques available that are referred to by their brand name and often cause confusion to patients who contemplate having liposuction. The primary difference is the type of energy source used to suction the fat. Dr Scott Turner will discuss the benefits of each and select the technique that is best suited to achieve your fat reduction and body shaping aesthetic goals.
