“At Ashbury Clinic, we have successfully provided thousands of people with the extra help needed to sculpt and slim their figure.” – Dr James Chen
According to Dr Chen, it is a common problem to find certain areas of the body notoriously hard to maintain. Luckily, with some of the liposuction procedures on offer at Ashbury Clinic in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast, we can provide you with the extra help you need to permanently remove problem areas from your figure through the successful use of our liposculpture treatments.
Liposuction is a procedure that can effectively re-shape the body through the removal of fat pockets that are positioned in various locations around the body.
To exude the positive effects of an enhanced body, it is important that health and fitness be maintained, not just from a cosmetic point of view, but also for psychological wellbeing.
Our genetic make-up determines the number of fat cells which compose the underlying layers of our skin, and once these levels have been established by the end of puberty, their numbers remain constant throughout our lives. The process of liposuction allows for the removal of a portion of these cells and subsequently lessens their numbers in areas where they may be causing us problems.
Weight gain is inevitable and a potential issue preceding treatment, so it is important to remain consistent in maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. However, the removal of excess fat cells ensures that the change in body proportion remains unchanged.
Before liposuction, as with any treatment, the team at Ashbury Clinic places great importance on ensuring you fully understand the process and suitability of any procedure you might wish to undertake, and that you are aware of the potential outcome and level of success in order to achieve the highest degree of satisfaction from your treatment. Prior to any liposculpture treatment, you will undergo a consultation to discuss your desired results and any health concerns that you may have.
The whole procedure will then be monitored and consultations will take place from procedure to post-operative care. With modern liposuction procedures being the result of decades of development, it remains one of the most popular and accessible cosmetic treatments available today.
While potential complications can be present during any surgical procedure, here at Ashbury Clinic our team of highly skilled professionals can reassure you that you will receive the best possible care. We strive to make your experience with us comfortable and of the highest quality possible. For example, we routinely cover our patients with an antibiotic before, during, and after the procedure.
Pain is rarely experienced during any treatment and often only minor post-operative discomfort is experienced by a handful of individuals. It is vital that you understand our post-operative care instructions and follow them thoroughly to ensure your procedure provides the best results and allows you to heal as swiftly and successfully as possible.
Unlike traditional liposuction, laser liposuction uses laser energy to target and shrink fat cells in fat-rich areas. The laser energy penetrates down to the fat cell level to create holes in the fat cell membranes. The fat cells leak their contents, which is either flushed out of the body via the lymphatic system or burns it as energy. As a result, the large groups of fat cells significantly decrease in size, sculpting the target areas for a smoother, more toned appearance.
Laser liposuction is a perfect treatment option for patients who are close to their ideal weight, yet who are struggling to lose those last few kilos in stubborn parts of the body. This is why it’s often called laser liposculpture, as the treatment sculpts and shapes the body to the patient’s desired shape.
In some cases, a suction device can be used to suction the treated fat cells; however, the incision made for the device is much smaller than traditional liposuction. Because of this, there is much less trauma to the body and it can be performed under local anesthetic relatively pain-free. The recovery time is also much shorter.
The benefits of laser liposuction:
The number of treatment sessions required will depend on the extensiveness of the fat cells being targeted, but in the majority of patients usually just 1 single session of laser liposuction is needed. Some patients see immediate results following just a single treatment, while others may need multiple treatments. The main advantage of laser liposuction is that it is gentle on the body, which means multiple treatments don’t cause significant trauma. In general, the amount of scarring and swelling post-treatment is far less compared to traditional liposuction too.
As well as weight loss in the targeted areas, the laser treatment also works to tighten your skin. Ultimately, the patient is left with a slim, contoured, and smooth surface.
