In some cases a normal Liposuction procedure may not be sufficient to remove the desired amount of fat from patients or achieve the anticipated result. With these cases a Mega Liposuction procedure may be more suitable to achieve the results the patients are seeking.
A Mega Liposuction requires more time for the surgical procedure (and sometimes a longer recovery) and can be performed on fit and healthy people who desire fat removal for Body Shaping or Breast Reduction.
We have over 30 years of Cosmetic Surgery experience and we were one of the first clinics to perform Liposuction in Australia in the early 1980's. We have performed over 10,000 Liposuction procedures as well as thousands of other Cosmetic Surgery procedures.
We are committed to patient education providing post surgery support to help optimise the results and help prevent weight gain.
Mega Liposuction is performed the same way as a normal Liposuction surgical procedure whereby fat cells are extracted from problem areas of your body to decrease the volume and size. However, with Mega Liposuction generally more fat cells are removed in the one procedure using the most advanced technologies and Liposuction techniques to remove these fat cells.
For Mega Liposuction the Tumescent Liposuction Technique is used where large amounts of diluted local anaesthetic and adrenalin are infused into the fatty area, resulting in numbness of the area and constriction of blood vessels to minimise patient discomfort. A small suction tube is inserted through a tiny incision placed in an inconspicuous location on the skin. Under vacuum, fat cells are extracted through this tube. This results in a relatively painless and easy removal of the unwanted fat cells.
An obligation free consultation with one of our Surgeons is essential to determine if Mega Liposuction would be suitable for you. Whilst Mega Liposuction is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle, it can make you look and feel better.
It seems that after puberty we do not create new fat cells. When you gain weight, you expand the fat cells you have. Tumescent liposuction decreases the fat cells to improve your body's contour. Should you gain weight after liposuction, it goes to the fat cells that are remaining in your body. The localised fatty deposits that existed prior to liposuction are unlikely to balloon up out of proportion to the surrounding areas.
You are provided with an after hours direct number in the event you may have any questions or concerns you wish to speak to us about. The next day or within a few days you must come back to the Clinic for your first post-operative check. You will be given some medication to take to prevent swelling and infection and it is important you take this as instructed..
You will be required to wear a compression garment for at least 4 weeks (and up to 6 weeks for optimum benefit) after your procedure. Your Surgeon or Nurses will supply these garments to you. They are made out of a strong lycra type material and are designed to hide under your clothing so no one need know you are wearing them.
You may experience some discomfort and stiffness initially (a little like having done a strenuous gym workout), but this will gradually disappear. The puffiness, tenderness and bruising (if any) of the treated area will generally disappear in one to two weeks. Most patients tolerate the discomfort without the need for pain medication. However, if you feel discomfort for a few days this is usually well managed by simple pain medications.
Following the first day we recommend you walk for at least 30 minutes each day and otherwise continue with your normally activities. If you should go on a long car or plane trip, you must walk for at least 5 minutes every hour during the trip. You can return to non-strenuous work within 2 days. However you should wait at least 10 days before attempting more intense activity and if any discomfort is experienced with any activity it should be discontinued.
Our surgeons and staff will continue to monitor your recovery through a number of post-operative check-ups and are available at any time if you have questions or concerns.
Cosmetically speaking, successful Mega Liposuction is measured in centimetres/inches rather than kilograms or pounds. The fat and weight removed is not as important as the improvement in your body's shape and contour.
Most important is the patient's improved body image and new found confidence.
As every patient we see has different requirements, it is difficult to provide standardised pricing as each procedure is tailored for each individual patient's situation. As a guide, prices for Liposuction start from $3,160 for one area.
During your consultation your Surgeon will discuss with you the best options for you. You are then provided with a quote so you know exactly what is involved in your procedure and what it will cost.
Our philosophy is simple. We want you to be fully informed, and we want you to understand all your options and have one accurate price quoted once. Consultation fees may apply.
There is no need for you to obtain a referral from your own doctor to see one of our surgeons. Generally we are able to book you in to see one of our Surgeons in 7 to 14 days.
