You could have the strictest diet and exercise routine, yet be unable to lose certain persistent fatty areas. A well planned liposuction procedure can help you kick-off that weight loss process and help better define your body form.
Liposculpturing is the surgical procedure that is performed to remove excess subcutaneous fat to sharpen the definition of various anatomical body areas, reducing the volume and giving better appearance. With larger volume liposuction, greater areas of fatty deposits can be removed allowing better form and achieving some weight loss.
Dr Kwei has been trained through the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, and utilise the tumescent and superwet techniques of liposuction.
In the case of larger volume liposuction, the areas where the fatty deposits have been removed, skin collapses over these areas, achieving the better shape and form. However, these newly created ‘spaces’ will need subsequent weeks to collapse and stabilise completely, and in the first few days post liposuction body fluid volume can collect in these spaces and cause significant dehydration. This may be so significant as to compromise heart function and organ perfusion. It is essential for the surgeon to understand the various issues that is important to the patients’ physiology, and adopt proper monitoring, fluid and glucose replacement when necessary to minimise any adverse outcomes to the blood volume change and the body after liposuction.
All procedures done by Dr Kwei are done at fully accredited Hospitals and Day Surgery, with comprehensive cardiac and physiology monitoring and specialised wards when required post procedure.
