About Body Contouring

Liposuction, also called "lipoplasty" removes fat deposits from specific areas of the body. Localised fat deposits may sometimes be an inherited trait and typically do not respond to dieting or exercise. Liposuction is usually the only way to eliminate them.

Body contouring through liposuction can be performed on any part of the body – hips, tummy, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, buttocks, abdomen, calves and ankles, chin, neck and upper arms. Several areas can be reduced at the same time. The procedure works best for people of normal weight with good skin tone and elasticity. With older, less elastic skin, a skin-tightening procedure may also be necessary for optimum results.

If you are considering body contouring, we recommend you book a consultation with Mr Mutimer so you can obtain relevant information about this procedure and how it may benefit you.

Your Consultation

Initial consultation: Meet Mr Mutimer for a 30 min consultation where you will discuss your body contouring procedure in detail, the technique to be used and expected recovery time. Photos will be taken. Following this you will meet with our Patient Advisor who will take you through costs and discuss potential dates for your procedure.

Pre-operative appointment: 2 weeks prior to your body contouring procedure you will meet Dr Mutimer again for a final consultation. You will also meet with the Patient Advisor and Practice Nurse to finalise all administration, and discuss pre and post-operative care instructions. Measurements will be taken for your post-surgical garment/s. Payment for your procedure is also finalised.
