Liposuction in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Capetown

Liposuction
Liposuction uses an invasive mechanical technique to tear the fat cells and suck them out of the body.
Liposuction uses a thermal process to gently heat up and destroy the fat cells, leaving it in a liquefied state which makes it easier for the Specialist to remove, or for the body to naturally metabolize the fat.
The heat stimulates the fibroblast (a cell that contributes to the formation of connective tissue fibres) which allows you to produce new collagen fibres, resulting in a skin-tightening effect. This also happens to be an extremely beneficial post-pregnancy treatment.
Effectiveness of treatment
In effect, the treatment is the first laser that literally vaporizes subcutaneous fat. It not only takes away the fat, it also tightens the skin overlying it. and the procedure leaves no scars, and there is no downtime associated with it. Improvements are usually seen within approximately 6 weeks of treatment and continue to gradually improve up to 4 months post treatment. Liposuction is perfect for eliminating common and stubborn problem areas such as inner and outer thigh, tummy, jaw line jowls and similar areas. The overall results depends on the amount of fat in the area to be treated.
Who is eligible?
The treatment is best for healthy people who are not excessively overweight or who are of reasonably average weight but who have specific localised areas of stubborn fat, such as double chins, love handles, outer thighs, inner thighs, hips, bottoms, upper arms, backs inner knees and of course the tummy/abdomen area, but vitually anywhere is treatable. People who do have health issues need not be excluded but special precautions may be required.

This will need to be discussed during the initial consultation with your Aesthetic Specialist at The Melrose Aesthetic Centre.
Risks & Side-effects
Like any procedure, Liposuction also has its risks and side effects. These include bruising and/or discomfort in the short term, both which typically disappear more quickly than other forms of liposuction. While the procedure is not painful as such, pain thresholds vary from person to person. However, local anaesthetic is applied to the area to be treated.
What is the procedure & duration?
The procedure is performed under sterile conditions in a treatment room. The area to be treated is marked by the Aesthetic Specialist, and the area of fat to be removed is locally aneasthetized so that no discomfort is experienced during the procedure. A very fine (1.5mm diameter) cannula which contains the laser fibre is inserted under the skin through a tiny incision and directly into the fat. The laser beam is then slowly and methodically guided through the area and directed onto the fat cells. The energy and heat from the laser destroys the fat cells with no damaging effect on the surrounding tissues. In addition to destroying fat cells the heat from the laser tightens the skin through collagen stimulation and new collagen production. Your body will absorb this liquefied fat and eventually quite naturally excrete it through the body's natural metabolic process. Depending on the area treated, the procedure generally takes about an hour. Usually there is very little bleeding bruising or swelling and return to normal activity is possible shortly after the procedure.
What happens afterwards?
Generally you will remain at The Melrose Aesthetic Centre for an hour before returning home. You will be given verbal and written post procedure instructions, and be provided with your medical requirements before leaving The Melrose Aesthetic Centre. Depending up on the area treated, you are usually required to wear a compression garment for 2 - 3 weeks. There is almost no bruising, swelling or pain and very few people require more than an occasional mild painkiller. Most people can return to work and most normal activities the next day.
Is treatment permanent?
Like other forms of liposuction, Liposuction is not a solution to obesity. It is designed to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat in specific areas of the body. Ideal candidates are those that are in relatively good health mentally and physically. Liposuction is not a replacement for liposuction but can be complementary to it, and is often used post-liposuction for enhanced body sculpting and skin tightening. There is a limit as to how much fat can be removed at any one time and if you need to remove larger amounts of fat in one session then liposuction may be the preferred option. Liposuction is a very effective treatment, however, like any body sculpting programme a sensible diet and lifestyle is necessary to maintain the condition and its effectiveness.
