Liposuction – Redefine your body shape with Absolute Cosmetic Medicine

Liposuction – Redefine your body shape

Liposuction, also known as lipectomy or lipoplasty, is a procedure that improves the body’s contours and proportion by removing excess fat deposits to slim and reshape specific areas of the body. These fat deposits appear to have a biochemistry that is different to fat elsewhere in the body, often referred to as areas of fat storage or reserve fat. Liposuction can help remove these trouble spots and improve the overall shape and appearance.
In Australia more than 300,000 cosmetic medical procedures were performed in the last year. According to Whatclinic.com Liposuction is the second most popular plastic surgery procedure in Australia after Breast implants.
As the cosmetic medical surgery industry is very competitive with doctors competing to establish themselves as the leading provider –  Body Plus based in Perth, WA has seen a lot of surgery results either performed overseas or in Australia. The liposuction operation should only be done by an experienced surgeon. One of those is Doctor Murray, based in Perth. Liposuction is one of their specialities. Doctor Murray and the Team of Absolute Cosmetic Medicine have performed more than 5000 liposuction procedures to date. Absolute Cosmetic Medicine is the first clinic in Perth to have the Lipo 2.0

Any area can be treated, the common areas targeted include thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms, neck and under the chin. The surgery can take place under either a local or general anaesthetic.

Should I wear graduated compression travel socks or stockings when travelling?

Don't fly without Body Plus Travel Socks

The simple answer is YES !

Health experts agree that everyone – not just those with a higher risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis, or have had a stroke – benefits from properly fitted, properly worn graduated compression stockings when flying.

The keyword here is GRADUATED compression. Socks or stockings that are the same compression at the ankle as they are at the top, only compress the entire vascular system of the limb. However graduated hosiery is more compressive at the ankle than it is at the top. This assists in pushing the blood back up the leg toward the heart.

When travelling, it is recommended to wear Class I or 15-20mm Hg compression. This is relatively mild compression that will help prevent blood clots, minimize swelling and generally have you arriving at your destination in better shape.

TED stockings (the white ones worn in hospital) are not designed to be worn when travelling. These stockings are designed to be worn only when lying in one position for an extended period.

Body Plus carries a wide range of graduated compression Travel Socks for men and women suitable to wear every day and when travelling. Jobst is the leading brands of compression hosiery and there are many colours and styles to choose from.

Our staff will accurately measure your legs and fit the recommended style. We also ensure that you are comfortable with putting the socks on and how to wear them correctly. We will take as much time as necessary to pass on some tips to help when putting on your socks and explain the importance of adjusting the sock once on to maximise effectiveness.
