Cosmetic Avenue provides the most effective leading-edge liposuction Melbourne has to offer. Even with a vigorous diet and exercise regime, body fat can prove stubborn; liposuction for men and women is a great alternative. Life after Liposuction will guarantee the body shape that you have always dreamed of, and the confidence you ultimately deserve.
The procedure removes excess fat from problematic areas through ultrasound assisted liposuction (VASER Lipo) or the traditional liposuction procedure. Cosmetic Avenue provides the stepping stones to a better you.
Good health is essential to a healthy life after lipo; This includes a good diet and regular exercise. It’s important to remember that lipo isn’t an avenue for weight loss rather a means of eliminating stubborn, disproportionate fat deposits that won’t go away no matter the rigorous exercise regime or how strict your diet is.
Attaining a normal BMI (18.5-24.9). The success in life after liposuction depends on maintaining a healthy weight with minimal fluctuation.
Having healthy, elastic skin that will retract and tighten after the procedure. This is predominantly age-related and it’s assessed upon consultation.
Depending on the procedure liposuction is performed using a local anaesthetic, with sedation, or with a general anaesthetic.
The procedure begins with several small incisions being made in the target area, followed by a diluted local anaesthetics to reduce bleeding. Next, a thin tube known as a cannula is inserted through the incisions to displace the fat.
Finally, the cannula removes the excess fat using suction. This process is repeated until the necessary fat is removed. On average, the entire procedure will take between one to three hours.
Cosmetic Avenue provides an alternative to the traditional liposuction procedure; the Vaser Liposuction procedure uses ultrasound technology to react with the fatty tissue, dissolving it and melting it down, allowing for more fat loss than the traditional liposuction procedure.
VASER stands for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. Vaser lipo generates the production of collagen cells cultivating tighter, smoother skin and a more contoured finish around the targetted areas.
Cosmetic Avenue offers the J-Plasma Skin Tightening Treatment; it’s a revolutionary procedure that combines helium gas and radiofrequency energy to create cold helium plasma. The plasma is injected, and the body reacts by stimulating collagen production in the affected area resulting in the tightening of the skin.
The J-Plasma Skin Treatment is an excellent option for patients looking for an enhanced finish after the traditional lipo treatment or an even better result after the Vaser Lipo procedure.
The body’s natural reaction to the procedure is bruising, swelling and pain around the treated area. During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss pain medication and different activities and guidelines to follow to ensure minimising your recovery time.
In some circumstances, you may be required to wear compression garments, how long you should wear your compression garments after liposuction depends on your body shape and type of procedure. You will have regular follow up appointment with Cosmetic Avenue to ensure you’re recovering as best as possible.
As liposuction is relatively non-invasive, some patients can return to work within three days. However, more intensive procedures may require you to take up to one week off. After two weeks, you can begin mild exercise, and then rigorous activity from four to six weeks.

The ideal candidate should be able to maintain their weight as liposuction is only permanent if your weight remains stable. It is also important to consider how you will recover from the surgery. To achieve the best results the skin around the target area must shrink to accommodate the loss in volume. This requires firm, elastic skin, that will snap back in place after surgery. However, as we age, this elasticity begins to weaken. For a more detailed assessment of your skin’s elasticity, it is best to speak with your surgeon.
If you are a smoker, you should stop at least two weeks before the procedure. It is also important that you avoid aspirin in the weeks leading up to the surgery. To be safe, review all your medication with your surgeon during your initial consultation as you may need to avoid additional medications.
Most patients will return to work within two to three days, while a more intensive surgery will require a week off work.
The procedure will results in some discomfort and bruising, and swelling which will begin to subside after 7-10 days. Mild exercise can resume after two weeks, leading to full activity after four to six weeks.
The procedure is performed under general or local anesthetic. Any discomfort after the procedure can be managed with pain medication prescribed by your surgeon.
Depending on the amount of fat that is being removed, you can feel dizzy or light-headed. This will usually last for two days after the surgery.
During the first 24 hours after the procedure, it is normal to have a reddish coloured fluid drain from the incisions. This results from a saline-based fluid used during the procedure to assist in the removal of fat. While most of this fluid is either absorbed by your body or removed during the surgery, some will drain out by itself. This is entirely normal, and no need for concern.
Like all cosmetic surgeries, there are some risks including swelling, infection, bleeding and blood clots. However, these are incredibly rare, and At Cosmetic Avenue we are committed to providing you with the highest quality service to minimise any risks.
