What To Expect From Abdominal Liposuction

Consultation

The first step in the stomach Vaser liposuction process involves a comprehensive consultation with a medical professional. These appointments are an essential step where your medical history, current health status, and treatment goals will be thoroughly discussed.

A Levant Cosmetic Surgery doctor will assess whether you are a suitable candidate for Vaser liposuction and provide a detailed explanation of the procedure, including the potential risks, side effects, and complications. You will also able to discuss all of your questions and address any concerns you have about the treatment.

Pre-Op

Before the procedure, you’ll undergo essential medical checks to ensure you are fit for surgery. Detailed instructions regarding pre-operative care, such as fasting guidelines and medication management, will be provided. Following these pre-surgery instructions is critical for your safety and the success of the procedure.

The Procedure

On the day of your Vaser liposuction surgery, anaesthesia will be administered for your comfort. The procedure involves the use of ultrasound technology to target and liquefy fat cells in the lower and upper abdominal areas. A small incision is made to insert a probe, which aids in the removal of unwanted fat deposits from the stomach.

Undergoing a Vaser lipo procedure on the abdomen can last between an average of one to two hours, the total surgical time will vary based on each individual and if other areas on the body are also being treated.

Aftercare & Recovery

Getting home

You will be required to be collected by a responsible adult to stay with you for the remainder of the day and overnight. Even if you feel normal, your reaction time will be slower after receiving sedation medication.

Aftercare

  • After your procedure, you’ll receive comprehensive post-operative instructions for a smooth transition home.
  • We provide a 24/7 contact number for any post-surgery questions, ensuring you can always reach us.
  • Your post-surgery care will be overseen by your doctor, supported by our dedicated care team.

Recovery Timeline

How Much Does Stomach Vaser Liposuction Cost?

There is no set price for liposuction surgery and the overall cost to undergo Vaser liposuction will always varies for each individual. The total cost incurred is influenced by multiple factors including:

  • The range of treatment, including the number of areas to be addressed.
  • The amount of fat to be removed.
  • The choice of sedation for the procedure.
  • The duration of the surgery.
At Levant Cosmetic Surgery, prices for Vaser liposuction begin at $5,500 for the initial area.
Additional areas are charged at a smaller rate starting from around $2,000.
An "area" can refer to the lower abdomen, upper abdomen, both flanks, or both upper inner thighs, for example.
Prices are a guide only and will vary from patient to patient. Book in for a consult for a personalised quote.
The Importance Of Choosing A Qualified Doctor

Opting for the least expensive option in cosmetic procedures is never wise. Lower costs may reflect compromises in quality, safety, and the longevity of results, potentially leading to extra expenses for corrective procedures.

Choosing a qualified doctor ensures higher standards of care, safety, and more satisfactory outcomes. Quality and expertise should be prioritised for effective results and patient satisfaction.

Other Areas Vaser Liposuction Targets

Vaser liposuction is a versatile procedure that can be performed on various parts of the body to reduce excess fat. Some commonly treated areas can include:

  • Flanks: Helps in contouring the waist area and reducing the appearance of the flanks.
  • Back: Removes unwanted fat deposits from the lower back and upper back.
  • Arms: Reduces excess fat from the underside of the upper arms also known as the triceps area.
  • Buttocks: Used to remove fat and decrease buttock size, alternatively fat can be added to the area with a fat transfer procedure to increase the size of the buttocks.
  • Thighs: An effective option for fat removal on both the upper inner and upper outer thighs, creating a slimmed appearance.
  • Inner Knees: To remove the small fat pockets located to the side of the knee on the inside portion of the leg.
  • Calves/Ankles: Calf and ankle liposuction is an option to reshape the lower legs, aiming to produce a more balanced leg contour.
  • Chin/Neck: A treatment option to reduce the unwanted pockets of fat from the underside of the chin/neck area.
  • Male Breasts: Gynecomastia surgery can help reduce breast size in males.

Doctor approved areas of the body can be effectively targeted with Vaser liposuction, offering noticeable changes in body contour and shape for suitable candidates.

FAQs

What are the risks of stomach Vaser liposuction?
Just like any surgery, stomach Vaser liposuction comes with its own set of risks and side effects. These can range from bruises and swelling to more serious issues like infection or skin changes. It's really important to chat with your doctor about all these possibilities so you know what to expect.
How much fat can you remove in one go?
In Australia, you can safely take out up to five litres of fat in a single liposuction session. If you need more than that, you might need a few extra appointments.
Will my skin be loose after the procedure?
This depends a lot on how your skin is before the surgery. Some people’s skin tightens up nicely afterwards, while others might have a bit of looseness. Your doctor will give you an idea of what to expect based on your skin’s current elasticity.
Will there be scarring?
As with any surgery, scarring is a natural side effect. However, the scars from Vaser liposuction are usually small and can fade over time. As everyone is different, the visibility of the scars once healed will always vary.
Is this procedure okay if I’m obese?
Vaser liposuction isn’t a weight-loss surgery, so it’s not always suitable for people who are obese. However, if you’re looking to remove a lot of fat, we also offer Mega Liposuction, which you can discuss with your doctor during your consultation.
Are there options that don’t involve surgery?
If you’re not considering surgery, we also offer CoolSculpting, which is a non-surgical option to reduce fat in specific areas of the body. It’s only suitable for certain patients and to learn more about this treatment we offer complimentary consultations.
