Mega Liposuction

Large volume liposuction is a surgical procedure to reduce the amount of excess fat in medically suitable overweight patients.

Mega Liposuction Before & Afters

As with any surgery, scarring is to be expected. However, the scars from Vaser liposuction are usually small and can fade over time. As everyone is different, how noticeable the scars appear once healed will always vary.

Mega Liposuction At A Glance

Mega Vaser liposuction is a liposuction technique that uses ultrasound technology to efficiently break down and remove excess fat cells. Unique for its ability to safely extract up to five litres of fat in a single procedure, it combines the precision of ultrasound with the effectiveness of traditional liposuction, but with a less invasive approach.
Average Procedure Time 1-4 hours
Anaesthetic Type Local with sedation
Hospital Stay Day
TIME OFF WORK 1-2 weeks on average depending on multiple factors
Average RECOVERY 6 weeks

Benefits

  • High Volume Fat Removal: Capable of removing up to five litres of fat in one session, for significant fat reduction.
  • Precise Targeting: Ultrasound technology allows for accurate targeting of fat deposits, enhancing the effectiveness of the procedure.
  • Minimised Trauma: Less invasive than traditional liposuction, leading to reduced tissue trauma and potentially quicker recovery.
  • Enhanced Skin Tightening: The ultrasound technique is designed to aid in skin retraction post-procedure, which may vary based on individual skin conditions.
  • Improved Safety: Intended to be a safer option for removing larger amounts of fat in some cases, potentially reducing the risk associated with multiple liposuction sessions.

Potential Candidates

Considering undergoing mega liposuction and wondering if it’s the right choice for you? If you identify with the following, you may be a suitable candidate for mega Vaser lipo.

  • You are overweight without suffering from morbid obesity and are unable to lose excess fat with a consistent diet and exercise.
  • You’re in good overall health with realistic expectations about the procedure.
  • You are committed to a healthy lifestyle to maintain results.
  • You have good skin elasticity, which helps it conform to the new contours after fat removal.
  • You don’t smoke – you must quit or refrain from smoking before and after the procedure.
  • You’re not pregnant or nursing.
  • You understand that mega Vaser liposuction is not a substitute for proper diet and exercise and should have realistic goals for the procedure.

What To Expect From Mega Liposuction

Consultation

When you decide to explore Vaser liposuction, your first step involves a consultation with one of our expert doctors at Levant Cosmetic Surgery. During this appointment, you’ll talk about your medical history, your current health, and what you hope to achieve.

Our doctor will assess if mega liposuction is a good fit for you, and then explain the procedure in detail. It’s also your chance to ask any questions or share any concerns you might have about the process.

Pre-Op

Before the actual surgery, there are some important things to take care of. You might need to do some medical tests to make sure you’re ready for the procedure. This is on a case-by-case basis.

We’ll provide you with clear instructions beforehand, including what to eat or avoid, and what to wear on the day of the surgery. Following these instructions closely is essential for a smooth and safe experience.

The Procedure

Mega liposuction follows a similar process to standard Vaser liposuction procedures but focuses on removing substantial amounts of fat from each treatment area, rather than solely on body contouring.

During the procedure, your doctor will make small incisions in the targeted areas. Then, they’ll use an ultrasound probe beneath the skin’s fatty tissue layer to break down the excess fat cells. Once these fat cells are sufficiently broken apart, a cannula is employed to vacuum them out of the treated area.

Mega liposuction is performed under anaesthetic sedation for your comfort.

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

Immediate Post Procedure

You’ll be released into the care of a responsible adult family member or friend.

An overnight hospital stay is not required.

Once home, you must rest and take it easy.

First Two Weeks

Expect to experience soreness and tenderness, but we’ll provide pain relief to minimise discomfort.

Compression garments are always worn post-procedure. You will be instructed on how long you will be required to wear these garments.

You should be able to start driving again after a few days.

During this time follow-up appointments will commence as organised by your care team.

Depending on individual factors, you may be able to return to work around the 1 week mark, but this will vary from patient to patient. Exercise can begin again after approximately 6 weeks post-procedure.

Two Weeks & Beyond

Follow-up appointments will continue as necessary and are scheduled by your care team.

You must continue to wear your compression garments as directed.

A surgical review with your doctor takes place approximately 6-8 weeks post-procedure.

Full recovery occurs around the 6 week mark, with full results evident in 6-12 months.

How Much Does Mega Liposuction Cost?

The cost to undergo mega Vaser liposuction varies from patient to patient, depending on factors such as:

  • The areas of the body treated.
  • The number of body areas treated.
  • The body type of the patient.
  • The type of anaesthetic used.
  • The amount of time spent in surgery.
  • The number of procedures required to achieve your desired results.
At Levant Cosmetic Surgery, our mega Vaser liposuction procedures start from a base price of $6,600 for the first 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 hips, 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

Choosing the cheapest option is not usually the best idea, especially in healthcare and cosmetic procedures. Lower prices often mean lower quality, safety risks, temporary results, less personalised care, and possible extra costs for fixes. Prioritising quality and expertise is crucial for better outcomes and overall satisfaction.

Areas Mega Liposuction Targets

  • Abdomen: Mega Vaser liposuction is a suitable choice for excess fat in the stomach area, as long as there’s not too much loose skin. Remember, it’s different from a tummy tuck.
  • Flanks/Waist: If you’re looking to reduce fat in your flanks and waist, mega Vaser liposuction can target these areas effectively.
  • Back: Unwanted fat in the lower back (near the lower bra line) and upper back (above the upper bra line) can be addressed with mega Vaser liposuction.
  • Arms: Stubborn fat deposits under the arms, particularly in the triceps area, can be successfully treated using mega Vaser liposuction.
  • Thighs: Vaser liposuction is an option for patients with good skin tone and elasticity who have fat deposits on their upper inner and upper outer thighs, as well as front and back thighs.
  • Knees/Calves/Ankles: Suitable candidates have the opportunity to remove pockets of fatty tissue from the inner knees, calves, and ankles.
  • Gynecomastia: For those concerned about excess body fat in the male chest area, mega Vaser liposuction may be a treatment option.

FAQs

How many mega liposuction procedures will I need?
It varies per individual. Some achieve desired results in one session, while others may need two or three, due to limits on fat removal per session.
What are the risks and side effects of mega liposuction?
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks, including pain, bruising, swelling, scarring, skin irregularities, asymmetry, fluid accumulation, numbness, and potentially unsatisfactory results.
Will there be excess skin after mega liposuction?
Some skin wrinkling and looseness will occur, especially if skin elasticity is reduced. Significant excess skin might require additional procedures like a tummy tuck.
Does mega liposuction leave scars?
Scars following surgery are inevitable, but with proper care, like using silicone scar creams, they tend to fade over time.
Do fat cells return after mega liposuction?
The number of fat cells typically remains stable after adolescence. Removed fat cells don't regenerate, but the remaining cells can enlarge if weight is gained. Weight gain post-procedure tends to be more evenly distributed.
