Liposuction, which is also known as liposculpture or lipoplasty, is a very commonly performed plastic surgery procedure used for removing stubborn deposits of fat through tiny incisions. In doing so, the contours of the body can be changed to create a slimmer and more attractive figure. The best candidates for liposuction are healthy and relatively fit, have firm, elastic skin, good muscle tone, and are within 30% of their ideal weight.
VASER® Liposculpture is the latest and most accurate type of liposuction which differs to traditional liposuction in that it uses ultrasonic waves to selectively breakdown/liquefy fat prior to its removal. This results in smooth, predictable results with minimal swelling and downtime. Since it is more tissue selective than traditional liposuction, patients report low to minimal pain as well as minimal swelling and bruising. Dr Miroshnik is one of the few surgeons in Australia to offer this type of technology to his patients.
Nonsurgical fat reduction with radiofrequency (Exilis) is another method of helping reduce unwanted areas of fat, Dr Miroshnik may often pre-treat stubborn areas with this technology prior to the actual liposuction procedure. For more information on Exilis, please click here.
