Liposuction – Lipoplasty

Fat removal with liposuction in Perth by Dr Peter Randle

Liposuction Fat Removal

Liposuction is the process by which plastic surgeons remove localised body fat through the use of suction. It results in a slimmer, more attractive body contour and serves to boost patient confidence. If you’re interested in improving your body image by eliminating excess fatty tissue, Dr Peter Randle may be able to offer you the solution that you’re looking for.

Each person has their own unique body type, and liposuction is certainly not for everyone. In order to achieve the best results, the patient should have a relatively normal body weight to begin with, with extra fat localised in specific areas, including the following:

  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen

Lipoplasty can also be effective in removing fatty deposits from the legs, arms, face, neck and back. Whilst this procedure should never be considered as a substitute for proper diet and exercise, it can certainly play a role in the turning over of a new leaf. If you’re serious about getting your body back into a shape that you can feel good about, liposuction may be precisely the procedure that you’re looking for.

Liposuction is not capable of eliminating cellulite or loose hanging skin. The best results are achieved in patients who already have healthy skin with significant elasticity. This ensures that the skin has the capacity to evenly shrink after the operation. In the event that your skin has lost much of its elasticity, then a tightening procedure (such as a tummy tuck, buttock lift, thigh lift or arm lift) may also be in order.

Surgical Procedure for Liposuction in Perth

If you would like to know whether or not liposuction in Perth is an appropriate treatment for your situation, schedule a consultation at Dr Randle’s clinic. Your surgeon will walk you through benefits and potential risks of the procedure and help you to determine whether this is an avenue that you would like to explore.

There are several procedures through which surgeons conduct lipoplasty.  tumescent technique is used in which a fluid mixture is used to minimise bleeding and pain. The fat then is removed by a vibrating tip cannula (pal) or ultrasound

Patients generally describe the procedure as uncomfortable rather than painful.



Recovery Times for Liposuction in Perth

Following the procedure, your specialist will recommend that you wear a snug garment or dress for several weeks. This serves to minimise swelling and bruising whist promoting skin shrinkage.

A period of recovery time will be necessary before resuming regular activities including work. In most cases, it takes about a few days to a week before you can return to a basic routine. A longer period may be in order before taking on more strenuous activity.
