Your body is a work of art, which is why you want to choose a highly-skilled surgeon to perform body contouring procedures like liposuction.
Sculpting a flattering body shape requires expertise, a trained eye, and a detailed treatment plan.
Liposuction in Sydney
In Sydney, liposuction can be used on many areas of the body and is particularly popular for the abdomen, thighs, arms and buttocks. Dr. Flood offers 2 types of liposuction: tumescent and ultrasonic.
What To Expect
Dr. Flood will explain each procedure in detail and suggest the appropriate method of liposuction based on your body issues and hopes for surgery. He will work with you to develop a surgical plan that you feel comfortable with.
For most surgeries, Dr. Flood uses the tumescent approach and begins by injecting the treatment area with a tumescent solution. He then inserts the cannula through small incisions and gently moves it back and forth to suction out the fat cells. The ultrasonic liposuction cannula may be used during this step to assist with fat removal, depending on the patient.
Side effects from surgery are to be expected, as they are a normal part of the process and will resolve with time. Bruising should subside within about 7 to 10 days and swelling should be reduced in 2 to 4 weeks. The final contour is normally visible about 4 to 6 months after liposuction. Further improvements can be obtained with a healthy diet and fitness regimen.
