The procedure is relatively fast, taking between 60-90 minutes to complete depending on the area you want your excess fat to be removed from. As the incision is only 1mm in diameter, you’ll be left with minimal scarring, you won’t need to stay overnight at the clinic as there’s no suturing required.

By using 1 mm in diameter micro-cannula, we are not only able to do it with minimal trauma, but also allows 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.

What areas can liposculpture treat?

Areas that can be treated include the abdomen, the flanks/love handles, back fat, upper thighs, inner and outer thighs and buttock area, male and female breasts, upper arms and also under the chin, neck and jowls.

With liposculpture, we’re limited to removing no more than 2.5 litres of fat in one procedure. We only treat areas where there’s significant collections or pockets of fat where it can be removed.

Is liposculpture safe?

You’ll be in safe hands as the procedure is done by Dr Michael Rich, an expert in surgical liposculpture. He has an excellent record of success, even reduction of fat using this excellent technique in fine micro-sculpture including skin tightening. 

Liposculpture has always been considered the safest form of body sculpting and there’s been no major complications associated with this form of treatment at our clinic. This is different from more major procedures which involve general anaesthesia where there have been a number of problems.

The side effects of liposculpture are minimal, including bruising and some soreness for several days or up to a week. For some, skin marks may take months to fade but as they are only 1mm, they usually heal well.

All liposculpture procedures performed at Specialist Clinics of Australia are done using sterile equipment to minimise the risk of infection.
