Lipectomy is the excision of excess fatty deposits. Dr. Newton performs lipectomy to the abdomen and other areas of the body, such as the arms and the lateral chest to provide reduction of bulk and improved contours.
It is generally a simple excisions procedure and can be combined with liposuction. Larger areas are generally done under general anaesthetic.
Depending on the size of the operation and whether liposuction is involved, garments may have to be worn and care taken fro a period after the operation.
Results are good. Lipectomy tailors the specific area to allow the contour and size of that area to fit the figure nicely.
Every patient is individually assessed and Dr. Newton’s fee will reflect the type and complexity of the procedure required.
At your consultation with Dr. Newton you will discuss the costs with our office manager. The costs will be explained and you will receive a detailed written costing. If a rebate is applicable it will be clearly defined in your costing.
Are few. Scarring is probably the main concern.
