Day surgery liposuction and liposculpture at our Sydney practices in Caringbah and Bankstown
By using “tumescent liposuction” techniques, Lavida Cosmetic Medicine can save patients from needing a hospital stay and general anaesthetic. We can perform liposuction and liposculpture in our day surgery rooms in Caringbah and Bankstown using local anaesthesia. You will be able to return home the same day and will typically be back to normal activities in as little as two to three days.
We are able to treat a number of parts of the body. This includes the abdomen, inner and outer thighs, arms, knees, hips, breasts for both males and females, neck, love handles and back. Some patients choose to combine liposuction with a tummy tuck (click through for more information on that procedure).
It is important to note that liposuction should not be used as a replacement for lifestyle changes to reduce weight and improve overall health. Liposuction will remove fat cells from an area of the body. However, remaining fat cells in other parts of the body remain and will continue to get bigger and smaller as weight fluctuates.
