Liposuction / Liposculpture

Liposuction is a surgical technique where excess fat deposits are removed from specific areas of the body. This slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours, proportions and ultimately your body image.

Some people have a body with disproportionate contours due to localised fatty deposits despite being of good health and having a reasonable level of fitness. This may be due to genetics rather than a lack of weight control.

Liposuction can be used to treat these resistant fatty deposits in many parts of the body including the thighs, arms, neck, hips, waist, back, inner knee, chest, cheeks, chin, calves, and ankles. This can be performed on its own or in combination with other procedures such as a breast reduction or a tummy tuck

What Liposuction Doesn't Do

Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity and does not replace regular exercise and a good healthy diet in the maintenance of a healthy body weight.

Who is Suitable for Liposuction

People who exercise regularly and have stubborn areas of fat are the best candidates for this procedure.

Before any surgery a consultation is required with Mr Stanley Loo at East Care Medical Specialist Centre, 260 Botany Rd, Howick, Auckland or Ormiston Specialist Centre, 125 Ormiston Rd, Flat Bush, Auckland, to determine your requirements and to assess your suitability for this procedure. Mr Stanley Loo will also explain the procedure and the post operative care to you.

Liposuction / Liposculpture / Lipoplasty Procedure

Mr Loo performs these procedures under general anaesthetic or local with sedation (for small procedure) at either Ormiston Hospital, Botany or Auckland City Surgical Services, Remuera. The latest and safest liposuction/liposculpture techniques are employed to give you the best results possible. This is usually performed as a day case.

Post Operative Care

A compression garment is routinely fitted to the areas which have had liposuction for 6 weeks to give the best results. There may be initial swelling and bruising in the areas effected but this generally settles within the first few weeks. The final result may take up to 3 - 6 months to occur due to the swelling.

Mr Stanley Loo will follow you up at his rooms (Ormiston Specialists Centre orEast Care Medical Specialist Centre) to monitor your progress and ensure that your recovery is smooth.
