Is Liposuction Right for Me?

body4Have you ever looked at yourself in a full-length mirror and thought, “I’d be pretty happy with the way I look if only I could get rid of these bulges of fat”? Do you exercise and diet, hoping to lose those lumpy pockets of fat in the abdominal region or on the buttocks, only to get discouraged because they never seem to get any smaller? If so, you may be a suitable candidate for liposuction.

At the Sydney cosmetic surgery centre of Dr. Darrell Perkins, a slimmer, trimmer you may be just a visit or two away. Dr. Perkins offers state-of-the-art liposuction using the most advanced technologies and techniques to his valued patients who wish to tone their bodies. He uses his surgical skill and finely developed eye for aesthetics to create beautiful, natural contours that make his patients look and feel absolutely stunning. He would be delighted to do the same for you.

Are you a good candidate for liposuction? Sydney cosmetic surgeon Darrell Perkins can carefully evaluate your candidacy and formulate a treatment plan that is perfectly tailored to your individual case. At our day surgery in Sydney, liposuction candidates can undergo the procedure on its own or combine it with other surgical procedures as part of a comprehensive body makeover plan. Whatever your needs and goals, you can count on Dr. Perkins to produce the results you desire.

Candidacy for Liposuction

It is important to understand straightaway that liposuction is not a weight loss surgery, per se. While it effectively removes fat, it is not intended to treat obesity. Rather, it is designed to refine the figure, smoothing out those areas where the skin is affected by unflattering bulges.

At our plastic surgery practice in Sydney, liposuction is best suited to those who:

  • Are at or near their ideal weight and in basically good health
  • Have isolated areas on their bodies where fat has accumulated
  • Have attempted, without success, diet and exercise to remove these pockets of fat
  • Are realistic in their expectations
  • Are committed to leading healthy lifestyles to maintain their figures after surgery

The fat cells that are removed during liposuction do not regenerate; once they have been removed, they will not come back. This is a desirable thing for those willing to maintain their re-contoured bodies after surgery. However, those who gain substantial weight after surgery may find that the areas treated by liposuction do not expand proportionate to the rest of the body. Hence, it is absolutely essential that patients who undergo liposuction understand the risks of significant weight gain, prior to undergoing liposuction.

Liposuction may be the ideal “finishing touch” for patients who have lost massive amounts of weight and find themselves with stubborn, lingering pockets of fat on their bodies. These patients often combine liposuction with lift procedures to address the problem of leftover sagging skin.
