Dr Michael Rich has been at the forefront of the industry in Armadale, Melbourne and Sydney and was one of the first to perform it over 30 years ago.
He was trained by Dr Jeffrey Klein, the founder of the safe tumescent liposuction technique. Dr Rich often chairs forums as the ‘go-to’ person at national and international conferences, being highly regarded as one of Melbourne, Syndey and Australia’s best Liposculpture surgeons!
Liposculpture is a minimally invasive procedure, performed under a local anaesthetic delivered using the Tumescent anaesthesia method. Designed to maximise your safety, the mild sedation allows you to remain awake during the procedure.
The procedure is surprisingly fast, taking between 60-90 minutes to complete depending on the area treated. By using 1 mm in diameter micro-cannula, Dr Rich is not only able to do it with minimal trauma, but also for finer sculpting, allowing maximum fat and fat cell destruction and resulting in much more even and smoother fat removal with less uneven pockets or collections of fat, it also means you’ll be left with minimal scarring and you wont need to stay overnight as there’s no suturing required.
Treatments for different body areas:
Liposuction is available on areas such as the: buttocks, thighs, hips, back, legs, knees, elbows, neck and chin, “If you can pinch it, you can lipo it” says Dr Rich
Dr Rich discusses lipo lingo; “When other clinics advertise ‘how much better’ their surgery is compared to ‘traditional’ lipo surgery, they are referring to the old-fashioned killer variety, not the newer techniques that every surgeon worth their mettle is, or should be, using and has been doing for some time. Nobody does ‘traditional liposuction surgery’ in Australia anymore, rest assured, so when you see claims like ‘Much better results than traditional liposuction surgery’ is like saying ‘Our new car is so much better and faster than a traditional horse and cart’. It doesn’t mean anything.”
Liposculpture surgery is now considered a very safe, effective cosmetic treatment that when with a good surgeon, has consistent and outstanding results.
