At sculpt cosmetica located in Sydney, our tumescent liposuction procedure will remove stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. This procedure is appropriate for patients who are in the healthy weight range who would like to target specific areas.
When we gain weight, our fat cells enlarge. They will increase in size due to excess oil within the actual fat cell. When we lose weight, the fat cell still remains there, it just decreases in size because the oil within has reduced. So, we can consider fat cells as ‘containers that hold oil’.
When we perform liposuction or liposculpture, we physically remove these containers full of oil. This means, they can never come back. This is how we can actively change the shape of your figure, permanently.
Real people, Real Results.
The procedure involves provision of anti-anxiety medications as well twilight sedation. You should be a in a comfortable position, relaxed, rather drowsy but able to listen to instruction. You will then be given a local anaesthetic to numb the area where we are removing your body fat. The procedure shouldn’t cause any discomfort due to the anaesthesia.
From this point we will simply harvest your fat, the incision points are very small. Typically only 1 to 2cm in width, they do not require stitches. We aim to place the incisions in discrete locations. For a common liposuction procedure we will need to make about 2 to 4 incision sites. Of course this varies from patient to patient, procedure to procedure.
On completion of the procedure, you will be moved to our patient recovery lounge to rest and sleep. The sedative can take a few hours to wear off, but generally, patients are ready to go home about an hour after the surgery. You should be able to walk out of the surgery, but you may feel dizzy and lightheaded.
Our team will discuss with you our set of post-operative care instructions to encourage the healing process.
Typical costs will vary from $2,500 through to $7,500 for general small to large one off areas. This of course depends on body type and location. Please review the body area specific pages that are listed at the top of this page.
