But with so many options: what’s best for you? From coolsculpting to slim liposuction, from laser lipo, lipo freeze and smart lipo to tummy tuck, we’ve broken down the nitty gritty of your options to help you get an idea of the different procedures.

Freeze Fat Off with Fat Coolsculpting

When it comes to seeking help to lose fat from those stubborn areas, Coolsculpting is a fabulous choice. Scientifically and TGA approved, it is one of the most effective and non-invasive fat removal procedures, removing excess fat cells from beneath the skin using a fat freezing machine.

Accurate, and therefore great in targeting small areas including double chins, muffin tops and post-liposuction irregularities, it is quick and easy – with no down time required.

At Chelsea Cosmetics we offer competitive prices for our Coolsculpting—or Fat Freezing Melbourne packages, individually tailored to suit each unique client.

Which Liposuction is Best for Me?

For those wanting help with losing larger amounts of weight, liposuction may be the better option. Chelsea Cosmetics specialises in body contouring, offering liposuction as part of our range of professional cosmetic procedures in the heart of Melbourne.

Traditional liposuction (or conventional liposuction) is still very popular among cosmetic surgeons. It involves the creation of incisions over fat deposits, into which a hollow tube called a cannula is inserted to break up and remove the fat from the body.

This procedure, which initially involved a higher rate of post-surgery complications, has been revisited and revitalised with the invention of tumescent anaesthesia. With a usual 2 -3 weeks of downtime required, traditional liposuction is suited for patients with a large volume of fat to be removed.

VASER or smart lipo is a great choice for people who have struggled with weight gain, and exercise and diet just haven’t given them the dramatic transformation they’d like. Clinically proven to produce even results, VASER lipo uses a precise, minimally invasive liposuction technology that produces eye-catching results in just one procedure. Downtime is usually just one week, and this procedure also provides a great way to stimulate the collagen and shrink skin.

To Tuck, or Not to Tuck: Tummy Tucks for Fat Reduction

Tummy tuck surgeries are a surgical intervention that should be used as a last resort for people who haven’t been successful in shifting stubborn tummy fat.

Particularly popular with women who have excessive fat and loose skin in the abdominal area after pregnancies and dramatic weight loss, tummy tucks are a good option to help with removing larger amounts of fat and achieving ideal aesthetic results.
