About The Procedure

Image Liposuction/Liposculpture body sculpting (suction-assisted lipectomy, ultrasonic assisted liposculpture) is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed today. Proven safety, minimal scarring and outstanding results have made the various liposuction techniques the preferred method for removing fat from the hips, thighs, buttocks and midriff, as well as areas of the face, neck and arms. 

Dr. Darryl Hodgkinson as a leader in liposuction Sydney cautions his patients that liposuction is not an alternative to weight reduction, but can be very effective in removing fat from areas that do not respond to diet and exercise programs.

Liposuction is commonly used to remove stubborn, diet-and exercise-resistant fat deposits and to sculpt the body into a slimmer profile. For many of Dr. Hodgkinson’s patients, resistant fat deposits may be a genetic/inherited problem.

Most Commonly Treated Areas in Men and Women

Dr. Hodgkinson finds that most frequently treated areas in women are:

■ the abdomen

■ hips

■ thighs

■ knees

For liposuction in men this usually includes the love handles, abdomen, and enlarged male breasts (gynecomastia). These are areas where body contouring with liposuction produces the most impressive results.

The Safest and Most Effective Liposuction Procedure

Today, there are an ever-increasing number of types of liposuction (suction-assisted lipectomy, ultrasonic assisted liposculpture, power assisted liposculpture and the tumescent technique) and the choice of technique or combination of techniques used by Dr. Hodgkinson the results vary based on the patient’s specific body composition.

Dr. Hodgkinson cautions that all patients are different and a personal comprehensive consultation is required to determine if you are a candidate for liposuction and what type of results you can expect. There are many different tools with which liposuction can be performed.

The Safest and Most Effective Liposuction Procedure

Suction-assisted lipectomy is normally performed under light general anesthesia in our fully licensed and accredited day surgery facility. There are some risks and side effects related to liposuction as with most surgeries. However, liposuction is a safe procedure with very few side effects.

Should the types of side effects occur such as skin irregularity, lumpiness, dimpling, loose skin or infection occur, they are usually easily corrected. Most patients are back to work within a week and positive results can be seen within days after the surgery although the complete long-term result may not be visible for a few months when all residual swelling subsides.

Dr. Hodgkinson is an expert plastic cosmetic surgeon in Sydney offering liposuction and liposculpture services with over 25 years experience, not only in the field but in liposuction specifically.
