Mega Liposuction

Mega Liposuction is an effective weight loss treatment for overweight patients. It is a liposuction procedure with minimal scarring and rapid recovery time.

Why Mega Liposuction?

Mega Liposuction is an effective weight loss treatment for overweight patients. Not only is there an immediate reduction in weight, but this treatment can also help the patient kick-start a healthy lifestyle, an exercise program, a healthy diet, and can lead to a reduction in overall appetite.

The Procedure

Vaser Liposuction uses an ultrasound probe to melt the fat and tighten the skin to deliver a smooth natural result.

The liposuction procedure is performed under twilight sedation. General anaesthetic is an option.

Post Surgery

Light duties can be resumed the next day after surgery. We generally require you to take 1 week off work.

Compression garment to be worn for 6 weeks post the cosmetic surgery. Lymphatic Drainage massages for 2 weeks post surgery.

Top Mega Liposuction Questions

What is Mega Liposuction?

This type of cosmetic procedure does not require any major invasive surgical procedures such as a Tummy Tuck. It is a liposuction procedure with minimal scarring and rapid recovery time.

What does the Mega Liposuction procedure involve?

The liposuction procedure is performed under twilight sedation however a general anaesthesic is available on request.

Our doctors can remove up to 5 litres of fat from various problem areas per session using Vaser Liposuction. Usually Mega Liposuction patients have around 10 – 15 litres removed. This means 2 to 3 sessions (treating multiple areas), spaced a few days apart.

After a short recovery time spent at our clinic, you will be able to go home on the same day as your procedure.

After the operation is it important to note that you may experience some discomfort as well as swelling and light bruising. These symptoms will subside in four to six weeks.

Do the fact cells come back? Are the results of liposuction permanent?

The actual number of fat cells in a person’s body remains stable after adolescence. Unless we become grossly obese, you do not grow more fat cells after adolescence. The fat cells grow bigger when you put weight on and smaller when you lose weight. When the fat cells are removed by liposuction, it is more difficult to gain fat in the treated areas.

Liposuction results in a permanent change in your shape. When you put weight on after Liposuction it is in a more even distribution. These findings were published in the August issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. The full report can be read here.

Results. What and when can I expect them

In most cases, patients who have Mega Liposuction see results at 6 weeks. We take after photos at your 6 weeks appointment. The final results can take up to 6 months. This will vary from patient to patient.

Are there any risks of complications?

Studies have shown that Vaser technology has less complications compared to other UAL methods.

There are inherent risks and complications as there are with any surgery. You should be aware of the potential risks of a lipo procedure and discuss any concerns you may have with your doctor before your surgery is performed.
