Why is liposuction one of the most popular plastic surgeries?
Liposuction remains the most effective way to remove unwanted fat deposits
Liposuction has a very high patient satisfaction rate. With good reason. It’s a low-risk procedure that helps you achieve the aesthetic and realistic goals you are after.
Liposuction still rules in aesthetic surgery. Even though other body contouring procedures are available, liposuction is still in high demand. This procedure, designed to remove unwanted fat cells from the body, has stood the test of time. Main reason? High patient satisfaction.
According to research, over 80% of patients are happy with their liposuction results. At my practices in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast, my patients and I work together for sculpted results, consistent results and long-term results.

Liposuction Brisbane vs CoolSculpting
7 reasons why liposuction is in high demand
1. Patient satisfaction
Definitely the main reason, as we described above. While less-invasive procedures such as CoolSculpting are available, the simple fact is that they are not capable of removing as many fat cells as liposuction. On top of that, CoolSculpting is not as evidence-based and therefore it is not recommended in my clinic.

Types of liposuction
Power and suction-assisted lipo
The two main types of liposuction are power-assisted and suction-assisted. I employ both techniques at my plastic surgery practice in Brisbane.
In power-assisted liposuction, we use a powered tube that moves back and forth through the fat in a rapid motion. In suction-assisted liposuction, we remove fat from the body using vacuum suction. Depending on your requirements and the volume that needs treatment, we may use both techniques.
Vaser is an abbreviation for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance and I don’t perform this particular type of ultrasonic liposuction.

Types of cosmetic surgery I can help with
As a cosmetic plastic surgeon I perform a range of cosmetic procedures:
It’s important to know that I see many women seeking breast reconstructing following mastectomy after a cancer diagnosis. I can honestly say that witnessing the emotional relief following restoration is one of the most satisfying aspects of my career. The experience in those complex procedures flows through to my other work in less complicated situations and always benefits you as a patient.
