It is this knowledge and passion in cosmetology medicine that Dr Rich is a leader in the field, with people travelling from Australia and overseas to receive his level of expertise. Time brings wisdom, and Dr Rich will only use current and safe world practices and treatments to his patients.
Liposuction / Liposculpture
Dr Rich has been performing liposuctions since 1992. He was educated in Tumescent Liposuction by Dr Bill Coleman and later spent time in the United States with Dr Jeffrey Klein, who was the pioneer of tumescent liposuction and is acknowledged to be the ‘father of modern liposuction techniques’. He is regularly asked to chair the ‘Liposuction Symposium” at the Australian College of Cosmetic Surgery as a specialist in his field.
A focal point of tumescent liposuction is that it uses the finest cannulae available and markedly reduces the risk of an uneven liposuction and trauma post liposuction.
