What You Should Know Before Considering Liposuction

There are many ways to get into shape and, contrary to popular belief, surgical procedures are not one of them. Much of the time consuming and difficult work will be done by an individual through increased exercise and a better diet. However, surgical procedures like liposuctionin in Melbourne can be helpful. While a person can’t rely on this type of procedure to do all the work for them, liposuction can be beneficial to people who are looking to put the finishing touches on a body they have worked hard to get into shape.

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that helps eliminate fat deposits that people are having trouble getting rid of. This procedure basically works in two stages. The first phase is melting fatty deposits. The second phase is to suction out the melted fat. It sounds pretty basic, but there are a few things people should know about liposuction.


The first thing to consider is whether someone is good candidate for this treatment. While liposuction can work for anyone, most cosmetic surgeons will typically only consider people with a body mass index of 30 or lower.

Secondly, this is an invasive procedure. That means the possibility of post surgical infection, soreness and bruising are all commonplace after liposuction.

Lastly, it’s important to consider what type of liposuction is going to be the right option. Tumescent liposuction is the technical name for all liposuction treatments, but there are various methods used in these procedures. The most common is power assisted liposuction. This method uses a vibrating tool that breaks down fat faster, which in turn makes it easier to suction out. Ultrasound lipo (UAL) employs a hand tool that puts out ultrasonic energy that help to melt larger deposits of fat. Vaser liposuction is the same as UAL, only it uses a curved hand tool to disperse the ultrasonic energy in a more even pattern. The last is a lipo laser treatment. This uses lower levels of ultrasonic energy and is excellent for more delicate areas of the body, like the face or the neck.

If you’re having trouble dealing with that last bit of fat that won’t go away, even with diet and exercise, liposuction may be an option worth looking into. All you’ll need to do is consult with a cosmetic doctor to see if this procedure is right for you.
