a patient being prepped for Tummy Liposuction in Sydney

Tummy liposculpture versus conventional liposuction

If you’ve ever undergone tummy liposuction in Sydney then you probably are well-acquainted with its many downsides. Although liposuction is relatively effective when it comes to eliminating stubborn fat deposits, the procedure is invasive, takes months to fully recover from and requires general anaesthetics. Patients will only be able to appreciate the results of the operation long after the procedure is done. Hardly ideal for anyone dishing out a significant amount of money for a body contouring operation. You’ve got to wonder, isn’t there a better way? That’s where tummy liposculpture can comes in!

How is liposculpture better than tummy liposuction in Sydney?

To put it simply, liposculpture is a more specialised form of liposuction and improves upon the latter in every way. Unlike regular tummy liposuction, liposculpture requires only local anaesthetics thanks to what is known as the “tumescent technique” pioneered by Dr. Jeffrey A. Klein, a dermatologist from San Juan Capistrano, California.

In liposculpture, large volumes of diluted local anaesthetics are injected into the subcutaneous fat making the targeted area firm and swollen. Extraction of the fat deposits is then made possible solely by the strategic use of local anaesthetics with little pain or discomfort on the part of the patient. There is also far less tissue damage compared to traditional liposuction which translates to a speedy recovery. Liposculpture patients can resume work the next day although you should refrain from doing anything too strenuous for a period of at least 3 weeks.

Yet another advantage which has made liposculpture for women immensely popular over the years, is the mere fact that the patient remains conscious throughout the procedure. This means that you can witness the transformation yourself and point out revisions to your cosmetic surgeon as you see fit. This puts you in a much better position to end up with results that you’ve envisioned for yourself.
