Be Confident: 100% Refundable Surgery Consultation

Liposuction – lipoplasty

Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney

What is Liposuction surgery?
Liposuction surgery, also known as Liposculpture, provides a targeted solution for stubborn fat by removing fat cells. Because as adults we cannot make new fat cells, this has the effect of permanently reshaping body contours. If you’ve struggled with areas of persistent fat resistant to diet and exercise, a liposuction surgery may be the answer. Liposuction is not a treatment for weight loss or cellulite and it will not stop you putting on (or losing) weight in your new shape in the future.

Even before your surgery consultation, our expert team will inform and guide you. We will ensure you are prepared and ready to get most out of your consultation. 

Surgery Day

Your procedure will be performed as day surgery under general anesthetic in an accredited, licensed hospital. The length of the liposcution surgery depends on how many areas are being treated but is typically 1 -3 hours. Your doctor will put a compression garment on you at the end of the procedure and you will need to keep this on until advised. You will spend typically a couple of hours under close supervision in the recovery area before being discharged. You will need a responsible adult to take you home and stay with you for the first night.

Post Surgery

You will have your doctor’s mobile phone number in case you need them and the MINKST team will regularly be in touch to ensure everything is running smoothly. We will have arranged your first post operative check up with your doctor before you leave the hospital. Then you would be discharged from hospital after a few hours in recovery and under close medical observation.



Generally, the pain is mild to moderate and medication will be prescribed to assist. Approximately a week after surgery most patients can return to work.

It is normal for a small amount of fluid to leak from the incision sites for the first 12 hours after your liposuction surgery. The MINKST team will explain about how to manage this.

During the first few weeks swelling and bruising will be present whilst the tissue is healing. This can sometimes feel quite firm, however, will gradually settle within a couple of months after the operation. It is very important to wear the post-surgical garment as advised.

Liposuction, like any surgical procedure, carries certain risks that individuals should be aware of before making a decision.

The main risks associated with liposuction include infection, bleeding, scarring, contour irregularities, asymmetry, changes in skin sensation, fluid accumulation, fat embolism (rare), anaesthesia complications, and the need for revision surgeries. Skin irregularities, such as dimpling or waviness, may occur, and there is a possibility of excessive fluid loss during the procedure.

It is important to consult with an appropriately qualified surgeon, thoroughly discuss all the potential risks, and carefully weigh the benefits against the risks to make an informed decision.


Are Liposuction results permanent?
Liposuction permanently removes fat cells from targeted body areas, offering a more sculpted appearance. However, maintaining the results of liposuction depends on maintaining a stable weight through healthy lifestyle choices. If a significant amount of weight is gained after liposuction, the remaining fat cells in the body can enlarge, potentially compromising the outcome of the procedure. Therefore, while liposuction provides long-lasting results, maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen is crucial for preserving the effects over time.


Will Liposuction flatten my stomach?
Yes, liposuction can help flatten the stomach by removing excess fat deposits. However, it’s important to note that it’s not a solution for loose skin or a substitute for weight loss. The extent of flattening depends on factors like the amount of fat removed and skin elasticity. Consulting with our MINKST surgeon can provide personalised recommendations for achieving your desired results.


Can Liposuction remove cellulite?
Liposuction is not specifically designed to remove cellulite. While it can improve body contours by removing fat deposits, it may not necessarily eliminate cellulite, which is caused by factors such as genetics, skin elasticity, and connective tissue structure. Our MINKST doctor / surgeon will provide you with all the necessary information and help you understand the realistic expectations for the kind of results that may be possible.


Is Lipectomy the same as Liposuction?
Yes, lipectomy and liposuction are essentially the same procedure, both referring to the surgical removal of excess fat from specific areas of the body. Liposuction is the more commonly used term in medical practice, while lipectomy is sometimes used interchangeably to describe the same procedure.
