Methods of LipOsuction used by Dr Harper

  1. Conventional mechanical liposuction with tumescence using a suction force with a canula. Medial thighs, upper arms – areas of “soft” fat.
  2. Ultrasonic Liposuction with tumescence: sound waves disrupt the fat cells, then fat removed by suction force for areas of “tough” fat. Backs, lumbar rolls, all re-do areas, loins.

FAT IN THE BODY

Fat is either white fat or brown fat. White fat is from overeating either external (under the skin) or internal within the abdomen and chest cavities. Brown fat is genetic/inherited, born with it and increases with age. Frequently there is a combination of both. Brown fat is removed by liposuction, white fat is lost through dieting or gastric banding.

Patient 1 – 100kg white and brown fat

Patent 1 – ideal weight, ideal shape, no fat collections

LIPOSUCTION FROM TOP DOWN

Face – Fat Collects in the jowls and naso-Iabial folds in ageing and is removed in face-lifting procedure. Inherited fat cheeks (buccal fat pads), advice is not to remove to produce hollowing. In ageing, fat is mainly lost in face and is replaced by the procedure of lipostructure.

Neck – Fat in the neck may be localised just under chin or around the whole neck.

Generalised Collection – Small incisions at base of ear and under chin performed under GA. In the young all loose skin will take up, while in older patients the new laser liposuction will produce excellent skin retraction, or excess skin removed with a face lift procedure.

SHOULDERS AND UPPER ARMS

Everyone wants thin, sculptured muscular arms: the problem is either a) fatty arms/shoulders with firm elastic skin, normal contour or b) fatty arms with loose skin hanging down – ie bat wings – abnormal contour.

Buffalo Hump – A round prominent collection of fat over the back of the lower neck. Very distressing and unsightly, unable to be concealed.
