LIPOSUCTION (LIPOSCULPTURE)

Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, stubborn pockets of fat persist.

In men, this tends to occur around the abdomen, flanks (“love handles”), chest and chin.

As a result, more and more men are choosing to reshape these troublesome areas with liposuction. In fact, liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic procedures – and one of the most effective. Sculpting through liposuction can greatly improve your overall silhouette, eradicating those pesky bulges and making your clothes look and fit better.

FAQs

Is it for me?

Answer:

Liposuction is ideal for men with persistent pockets of fat that just won’t budge. Removing a small amount of fat can make a huge difference to your body.

However, liposuction shouldn’t be seen as a weight loss technique, as the weight of the fat removed is very small in relation to total body weight.

Dr Hunt meets with every potential patient individually to determine the surgery that will achieve the best possible results. During your consultation with Dr Hunt, he’ll explain liposuction surgery in detail, evaluate your suitability for the procedure, and answer any questions you may have.

What's involved?

Answer:

Your liposuction will be performed in the hospital of your choice, under general anaesthetic administered by one of Dr Hunt’s preferred partners. Each of Dr Hunt’s anaethetists are highly experienced members of the Australian Society of Anaethetists.

Dr Hunt will perform either suction- or ultrasound-assisted lipectomy, as determined in your consultation, after making tiny incisions in the target areas. During this one to two hour process, your fat cells will be permanently removed.

When can I go home?

Answer:

Depending on the extent of your surgery, you will go home either the same or next day. At this point, you’ll be prescribed pain medication to minimise any discomfort.

Will I have to return for post-operative care?

Answer:

You’ll see Dr Hunt five days after your surgery. All sutures are dissolvable so do not need to be removed.

You’ll then visit Dr Hunt at three and six weeks, and again at three, six and 12 months.

How long will I be off work?

Answer:

You should plan to take a few days off work.

When can I resume my normal activities?

Answer:

When you get home from hospital, you will need to limit your movements to around the house for the first few days. You’ll be wearing compression garments, which must not be removed during this time, and you should eat lightly and get plenty of fluids.

After three days you can shower and replace the compression garments, which should be worn continuously for two to three weeks, and then at night for a further two to three weeks. These garments help to define your new shape.

During the first three weeks after surgery, you mustn’t do any activities that increase your heart rate above 100 beats per minute. However, after six weeks, you can resume all exercise. Indeed, many people find that liposuction inspires a new, even healthier lifestyle.

When will I see the end result?

Answer:

The benefits of liposuction are immediate, although it may take up to two months until you see your final results. However, once fat cells are removed they cannot return – so by this stage, you’ve permanently farewelled your old shape.
