Is liposuction an effective weight loss method? ENRICH Clinic Melbourne

Liposuction is a safe and effective fat-removal treatment. It can be used to reduce stubborn fat deposits in the arms, abdomen neck, chin, thighs and buttocks, and to reshape the body. ENRICH Clinic’s Dr Michael Rich has been at the forefront of the best liposuction in Armadale, Melbourne.

How does liposuction work?

Liposuction removes stubborn fat pads using a suction technique. At ENRICH Clinic, we perform tumescent liposuction which is performed under local anaesthetic, rather than general anaesthetic. This means recovery time is shorter, and the patient is not required to fast.

What does liposuction Melbourne treat?

Liposuction is best used on small to medium pockets of stubborn fat that are difficult to shift with good diet and exercise habits. It is less effective as a weight loss tool, and is better used as a sculpting procedure to address fat deposits resistant to exercise and diet in specific areas of the body.

How much fat can be safely removed in one treatment?

It is possible to address more than one treatment area in the same procedure, however there are limits to how much fact can be safely removed in one treatment. Multiple treatments may sometimes be necessary. Approximately 6 kilos per liposuction procedure can be safely removed. Any more than 6 kilos would be classified as ‘mega liposuction.’ We do not perform mega liposuction at ENRICH Clinic. Liposuction should not be viewed as a treatment of weight loss.

After your liposuction procedure 

Liposuction is not an effective method for weight loss. Instead, it is better suited to shaping and sculpting specific areas of the body. The most weight loss you can lose from a liposuction procedure is approximately six kilos. Liposuction is often performed on stubborn, hard to move ‘fat pads.’ These areas can be hard to shift with diet and exercise.

Liposuction permanently removes fat cells from your body, reducing the body’s capacity to store fat. Remaining fat cells will continue to shrink and grow. A skilled practitioner will ensure that the results continue to look and feel nature should your weight change. Following your liposuction procedure, it is more important than ever to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regime.

Are the results permanent?

After liposuction, the fat cells in the treated area are permanently removed. The results will generally be long lasting if the patient maintains a healthy diet and exercise regime.
