Cosmetic body shaping treatments are incredibly personal, and nobody can make the decision to go ahead with liposuction but you. The amount of information out there can be overwhelming, so deciding if you really want to change your body shape in a long-term way may not be clear. That means talking to your cosmetic doctor is an important step – liposuction may not be the best treatment for you, as there are many to choose from.
Here are some questions to help you determine whether liposuction should be an option on the table for you or not. Remember, there are many other effective ways to dissolve or remove fat pockets without liposuction, and a plethora of skin-tightening, resurfacing and cellulite treatments available to improve the appearance of your skin or body. Liposuction is but one option out of many.
Come in for a personal consultation so you can tell us your aesthetic goals, and we can tell you your options, and explain the cost, time, and recovery regarding each and every one so you are making an informed choice.

What is liposuction and can it help me?
Liposuction is a fat-removal technique that reshapes your body. If you have stubborn pockets of fat that won’t budge, even with exercise and healthy eating, liposuction at our Melbourne clinic could be a suitable option to recontour your hips, thighs, abdomen, arms, ankles, knees, back or buttocks.
We use the very best liposuction techniques, using the very smallest cannulas – tiny tubes that cause a very minor, almost invisible scar at the incision point. Liposuction is therefore almost scar-free, offering an efficient way of long-lasting body shaping.
Deciding on liposuction is a big choice, since the area you undergo liposuction on will never need another treatment. This is a long-lasting treatment.
