Types of Liposuction
Chelsea Cosmetics are well experienced in performing liposuction for a wide range of patients. It is important to note that there are different types of liposuction which produce a different level of result and associated cost. The three main types of liposuction are:
- Tumescent technique
The procedure involves fat being removed via the use of medical instruments called cannulas which use suction to remove the unwanted fat. The fat is softened and removed via the cannula without damaging other tissue.
How to determine your Liposuction cost
As mentioned above the most exact way to determine the cost of your specific liposuction procedure is via a free consultation with the experts at Chelsea Cosmetics in Melbourne. For a rough estimation prior to any further decision, you will need to take into account the number of areas you feel you need to include in the procedure.
The complexity and time required to perform the procedure will be determined during your consultation. This is a crucial part of the process as our surgeons will examine and assess the areas you feel need attention, and then provide you a specific customised quote.
It is safe to assume however, that any liposuction procedure will start from around $3000.
How much fat can be removed?
It may sound surprising, but fat doesn’t actually weigh that much so it cannot be measured in kilos. Instead, we use millilitres and litres with around two and a half to three litres being the safe amount of fat to be safely removed in any one day. This is, however, classed as a large amount and would be a costly procedure requiring an overnight stay.
Liposuction should never be considered as a way to reduce your overall weight, instead it should be viewed as a way to change your shape.
Why have liposuction in Australia as opposed to overseas?
It is important to note that cheaper cosmetic procedures offered overseas come with increased risks. There can be more health complications or risk of infection by getting this work done overseas.
Many patients often require corrective surgery after an unfortunate result from an overseas operation, costing more in the long run and affecting your wellbeing. Foreign practices often do not have the time or the inclination to explain the risks and potential outcomes of the surgery.
These procedures, as with any medical procedure, involves an element of risk that can cause lifelong problems and further expense if not performed correctly under safe conditions.
It is vital to ensure that your surgeon has the correct qualifications with only medical personnel brokering your surgery.
