Liposuction lymphatic drainage massage
Surgical liposuction is a form of surgery sucking out the excess fat from the subcutaneous layer below the skin. A tube (cannula), attached to a suction machine, is inserted under the skin and fat is drawn off. In order to do this, the long cannula is inserted through the skin at certain port holes made through incisions. Channels are then made by the surgeon to move the cannula around under the skin.
Post surgical problems can emerge with the channels hardening under the skin, causing fibrosis and tissue adhesions. The fat can also turn into globules and give unsightly pitted effects with uneven distribution of skin texture. Some surgeons are also quite forceful in the amount of body sculpturing that takes place, sometimes damaging nerves under the skin and causing ongoing pain in the early days after the surgery.
In applying post liposuction surgery massage we use a G5 medical massage machine that vibrates the remaining adipose tissue under the skin. This evens out the pitting, breaks down the fibrosis and gives some relief to any residual pain. We also manually break up the fibres and drain the excess lymph back into the bloodstream.
Sometimes the entry points on the skin in surgical liposuction leave a scar and we offer microdermabrasion to reduce that scarring. We also offer non-surgical liposuction as one of our services for people who cannot or do not wish to undergo surgery or to improve the final finish of surgical liposuction.
Even if you are medically unable to exercise, this treatment can help you lose weight and look good. After a certain age it does not matter how much exercise you might do, you never seem to be able to lose that excess fat from certain parts of the body.
Liposuction (non surgical – cavitation)
You can now get rid of that unwanted fat from all over your body and face with non-surgical liposuction and lipoplasty, without having to have surgery. That means:
We can reduce your waistline, buttocks, thighs, legs, arms, back, double chin, jowls and fat that accumulates around the eyes. Not only do you lose fat and size, you also lose weight.
Subcutaneous fat under the skin is stored energy in the form of triglycerides (three fat molecules joined together). We use radio frequency waves to penetrate the epidermis (top of the skin) into the dermis (below the skin). This causes the water molecules to move at very high speed to produce heat at 45 to 65 degrees C. The fat cells burst. The fat goes back into the lymphatics and blood system to be excreted by the liver or used as energy. Fat disappears and we are able to mould the areas where treatment takes place to shape you just as you would like.
What also happens is the collagen and elastic (skin proteins) are stimulated and the skin tightens, no matter where we treat on the body. So not only do you lose volume, fat and weight, you also reduce your skin size and eliminate wrinkles to become more in line with your new shape.
Our clinic also provides weight loss programs through hypnotherapy, nutrition, naturopathy, exercise advice, and herbal prescriptions all within the same treatment programs. We have been in the weight loss and body shaping business for over 40 years.
We specialise in anti-aging naturopathic medicine and offer a range of skin rejuvenation services including non-surgical face lifts. We are a one-stop shop for looking and feeling healthier and younger – the natural way.
