Liposuction from $2999
Liposuction works because it removes fat cells permanently. After puberty our bodies do not create new fat cells, instead when you gain weight you expand the fat cells you already have. Liposuction permanently removes fat cells to improve your body's contour. Should you gain weight after Liposuction, it distributes to the fat cells that remain in your body.
For many people, exercise and a healthy diet cannot remove those areas of stubborn fat. The reason for this is that we are genetically conditioned to store fat. There are non-surgical methods to remove fat from these areas however they are limited in there depth of penetration, usually only 1-2cm, and with multiple treatments required, the cost soon builds up.
The most frequent areas treated by Liposuction in men are the waist, chest, abdomen and neckline. In women they include the upper and lower back, arms, thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, knees, lower leg, cheeks and double chins.
Liposuction - The Procedure
This procedure was pioneered and developed by Dr Fournier in Paris to eradicate localised fatty bulges and thus improve body contour. Localised fat deposits are removed through tubes or cannulas using minimal incisions, and through negative pressure, the fat is actually sucked out from the areas to be improved.
Liposuction - The Process
Any surgical procedure must be fully understood by you, the patient, so that Informed Consent can be given. Comprehensive information about the procedures, risks and recovery process will be provided to you during a Consultation, and again during your Pre-op visit.
You will be given a sedation and fall asleep however you will not be under a general anaesthetic, it is safer this way. You may or may not be aware of the procedure, most people loose track of time. During they may feel the movement and some people don't like that sensation. Nearly everyone says that the experience was uncomfortable but tolerable.
After the procedure you will need to wear a commercially-made support garment constantly for at least 4 to 6 weeks, except when you shower. Normal activities can be resumed the next day in most patients, but you should take a few days off work and with more strenuous activities resumed in a few weeks. In the first few days it feels like you have exercised after a long break.
Liposuction - The Cost
To help you get an idea of pricing, we work on the number of areas on your body that you want treated.
To be able to accurately give you a price for your liposuction we need to know the exact areas that concern you. So we need you to take, or have photo's taken of you that show us the areas that concern you. (Our photo request form is attached below this indicates how we would require your pre operative photos to be taken). For an average person we can do a single area for $1250 plus the facility fee of $725, as the size of the person increase's the cost per area increases, by 15%, 30% 45% etc.
When we do multiple areas the cost per area will decrease.
