Contour your body: KM Surgical
Liposuction procedures have come a long way in the last decade, making them a safe and effective option for achieving good facial and body contours.
Liposuction with the tumescent technique was developed by surgical dermatologists to be a very safe and effective liposuction procedure, with only local anaesthetic.
Dermatologist Dr Ken Macdonald, of KM Surgical, says tumescent liposuction is local anaesthetic surgery that has a quick recovery, and a high safety profile, compared to general anaesthetic liposuction.
“This procedure can create attractive body contours in a safe and relatively painless way with quick recovery. If you have disproportionate bulges you hate, and if you have done your best with diet and exercise, but just cannot get the improvement you want, then tumescent liposuction can be the best solution,” he says.
A leading Christchurch dermatology facility, KM Surgical offers cosmetic medicine and surgery, including liposuction, laser treatments of all sorts, and skin cancer treatments with Mohs surgery. “We can sculpt body areas, with precision, targeting stubborn fat pockets,” Dr Macdonald says, adding that it is important to note that liposuction is not a treatment for obesity, or a substitute for weight loss.
KM Surgical’s Day Stay Facility, Avenue Health, at 202 Bealey Ave, Christchurch, provides the ideal setting for this procedure. Patients benefit from a state-of-the-art environment, with a focus on comfort and well-being, in a day stay surgery environment. “This approach minimises disruption to patients’ daily lives, allowing them to return home on the same day as the procedure, and to recover quickly,” Dr Macdonald says.
