Liposuction / Liposculpture Surgery

Liposuction (Liposculpture) helps remove stubborn, localised fat that diet and exercise can’t shift. Both men and women experience this challenge.

Brisbane Cosmetic Clinic treats the following areas with Liposuction / Liposculpture: the chin, neck, jowls, cheeks, arms, inner and outer thighs, buttocks, knees, hips and abdomen. Dr Konrat will advise you on your options at your consultation.

During this surgery, fat deposits are removed from specific areas of your body. This is sometimes called ‘body contouring’ because the contours of your body can be changed. As an expected outcome from Liposuction surgery, a good guide is that a person can expect a 50% reduction in the size of fat deposits in that area. This can have quite a dramatic effect on your appearance. It is not possible or safe to remove 100% of fat cells.

Liposuction surgery at Brisbane Cosmetic Clinic is designed to improve your body’s contours and proportions, to improve your appearance both in and out of clothing, and to increase your comfort. However, Liposuction cannot improve the quality of your skin, e.g., stretch marks. Skin elasticity may also have an effect on the final outcome. Liposuction cannot treat cellulite. You should discuss your specific needs with Dr Konrat, who will advise you on the best overall solution for your goals.

Your pre-operation consultation

  • Prior to surgery a complete medical history is taken and a thorough examination is conducted in order to evaluate your general health.
  • Dr Konrat describes the types of anaesthesia to be used, the procedure, what results you can realistically expect and the possible risks and complications.
  • Pre-operative directions will include the elimination of certain drugs containing aspirin in order to minimise the possibility of excess bleeding and bruising. Antibiotics may be prescribed prior to surgery to prevent infection.
  • Photographs and measurements are taken before and after surgery in order to evaluate the final results.

Possible risks & complications

All surgery, including cosmetic surgery, carries risks. Although the vast majority of Liposuction patients do not suffer complications, you should not undergo Liposuction surgery without understanding the risks involved. There are two types of risk; those that apply to any kind of operation such as bleeding, anaesthetic risk and wound infection; and those that apply only to Liposuction surgery. Once you have read this information, you should discuss any concerns with Dr Konrat. The following explains some but not all of the risks specifically associated with Liposuction surgery.
