Find your own confidence.
Liposuction is a highly effective body contouring and sculpting procedure which removes stubborn, unwanted fat in an artistic way for the purposes of refining your body shape. For most, the results from Liposuction are long lasting and simply amazing. It gives our clients a new found confidence in their body and appearance.
At Illuminate we use the latest technology in liposuction guaranteeing not only amazing results but also less downtime, less skin trauma and better skin tightening post treatment.
Dr Adam, our Medical Director, uses either Vaser Liposuction or Vaser High Definition / 4D Liposuction to help you achieve the body shape you desire.
Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasound energy to help break up the fatty tissue making the bodies fat cells like butter allowing for easy suction and removal. This technology allows for greater fat volumes to be removed with less trauma to the skin and better skin tightening post procedure.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction removes fat deposits from your body in a safe and effective way. It is also known as Liposculpture or Lipo. Fat distribution in the body is genetically determined and some people are predisposed to having the body accumulate fat in certain areas. This stubborn fat cannot always be removed by diet and exercise alone.
Liposuction can be performed on almost any area of the body to reshape and refine it. The results are significant as fat cells do not generally regenerate in the treated area. After reshaping the body it will remain the same size if your weight remains stable.
What does the procedure involve?
The procedure is performed in our fully accredited day surgery and is procedure that has been safely performed under local anaesthesia for decades - though should you really prefer, you can have it performed under general anaesthesia.
The entire procedure takes 2-4 hours depending on the size and number of areas treated.
At consultation we will complete a detailed medical assessment with our Cosmetic Surgeon, and provide you with a step-by-step easy guide to understand the surgery, preparation and your easy recovery.

- The first step is the administration of tumescent (Local anaesthetic solution) by passing a very small size cannula under the skin to saturate and numb the area of concerns.
- Next the VASER probe is passed through the same small incisions, this will melt the fat in all the different skin layers as well as achieving maximum skin contraction through heat generated by the ultrasound probe.
- Special shaped cannula(s) are then used to suction the melted fat; no force is required as the fat is now in a liquid form
- All the VASER liposuction steps are performed with precision to ensure the best artistic shape – This is where the surgical and artistic skills of your cosmetic surgeon play such a crucial role in achieving the perfect results and this is also why you see such large differences in patient results.
