Surgical Reduction of Body Fat with Liposuction
Are you frustrated with not being able to tone your abdomen, buttocks and thighs despite exercising and following a healthy diet? If stubborn fat is preventing you from loving your body, liposuction can help. Sydney and Wollongong liposuction surgeon Adrian Sjarif can reduce unwanted body fat to give you a sculpted physique and boost your confidence. Thanks to his artistic eye and mastery of liposuction technology, Dr. Sjarif can create the beautiful, natural-looking contours you desire!
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
You may be a good candidate for liposuction if you stay in good shape with regular exercise and a healthy diet, but are having trouble toning one of more or the following areas:
- Upper arms
- Upper back (bra-strap area)
- Under the chin
- Male chest
You will see the best results if you have good muscle tone and firm, elastic skin that is able to contract over the treated area after liposuction. If your skin is loose or inelastic, you may be a great candidate for another body contouring procedure such as body lift, arm lift or thigh lift.
Dr. Sjarif would be happy to evaluate you for liposuction during a one-on-one consultation at one of his practice locations. If he determines that liposuction cannot give you the body contouring results you desire, he will suggest a suitable alternative. Or, he may recommend an adjunct procedure to enhance your results.
Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis in hospital or a day surgery facility. General anaesthesia nesthesia is administered to keep you completely comfortable during surgery.
Dr. Sjarif will begin by making several small incisions around the targeted area(s) of your body that have unwanted fat or bulges. He will be careful to conceal these incisions in the natural creases of your skin so that any scarring is inconspicuous. Through the incisions, Dr. Sjarif will insert a thin, hollow tube called a cannula, and move the cannula back and forth through the unwanted fat to break it up. Then, he will gently suction the dislodged fat from the body.
Recovering from Liposuction
After Dr. Sjarif is finished making the surgical modification, he will bandage the treated area and may place a compression garment over the area to control swelling and support the healing tissues.
You can expect some mild to moderate swelling, bruising and tenderness in the treated area. The worst of the symptoms should subside within a few days, but it can take several months for swelling to completely dissipate.
Most liposuction patients take one to two weeks off from work. Dr. Sjarif will clear you to return to work, exercise and the rest of your normal activities when you are ready. You should see immediate improvement in the treated area, with your results continuing to improve over time.
