Liposuction Procedures Celebrate Twenty Years Of Changing Times And Body Image


Liposuction has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world and Australia is no different. Indeed the tumescent liposuction method developed by American Dermatologist Dr. Jeffery Klein has been practiced in Australia for twenty years this year.

Tumescent liposuction is the method where the surgeon fills the fat with a dilute local aesthetic fluid. Often five to six liters of fluid is first infiltrated into the fat. Resulting in softer fat that is numbed and stretched out which allows the smooth removal of fat.

Dr. Daniel Lanzer is an Australian dermatologist who convened the first hands on conference about this method in Australia. When asked about it recently, Dr Lanzwer stated “I recall the amazement of the attending surgeons when the patient was talking awake whilst fat was flowing from her hips.” Dr Lanzer and his patients have featured several times on national television and these appearances can be seen on Dr Lanzer’s website

Dr Lanzer also commented “Liposuction has undergone a gradual development. Initially it was used for small unwanted areas. As we began to further understand the safety and applications we used it for large areas and as a help for patients who were overweight. In the year two thousand we started using the method for heavy breasts in women and men. The most recent advance was the Hi Def Liposuction. With this method the surgeon can sculpt the fat so that a man develops the six-pack muscular look and the female the athletic abdominal groove.”

Dr. Lanzer has performed over ten thousand procedures and says the records show the results are dramatic and safe. However all procedures have risks, and there are specific ones to liposuction. Indeed in many states in Australia surgeons must operate in a registered day centre if they perform liposuction regularly. Hospitals and day surgery centers must first become registered and then are encouraged to become accredited. Only accredited centers can claim item numbers. There are a number of bodies that accredit hospitals in safety and quality. A popular standard in Australia is the ISO 9001 which is a worldwide standard that checks every detail of a surgeons practice and hospitals are under strict guidance and control.

Finally, Dr Lanzer also recommends anyone considering cosmetic surgery should use the internet to do their research first.He says, “One of the most amazing changes has been the introduction of the internet. Most patients now come to the surgeon already well informed. Visit a website like and within a few minutes a layman can see photos and videos of procedures and know what they want"
