Power assisted liposuction, also referred to as liposculpture, is designed to remove unwanted fat from specific areas of the body. Liposuction is not a replacement for diet or exercise, but rather a way to change what heredity may have dealt you in regard to your proportion. Dr. Antoniak combines two of the most innovative and recovery friendly methods of liposuction for his patients so that down-time post-surgery is usually  limited to only a few days.

The tumescent technique is performed by injecting the targeted areas of fat with a mix of different medications in a saline fluid just prior to surgery to help freeze the area, shrink blood vessels (for less bruising post-operatively) and to help the removal of the fat. Dr. Antoniak then employs the micro-aire power assisted lipoplasty equipment to gently remove the fat. Because of the power, the cannula size is much smaller than conventional methods which means the incisions are tiny and can be placed in inconspicuous places.

Liposuction is a safe, successful surgery performed in Dr. Antoniak’s private accredited Surgicentre. Under twilight sedation provided by an Anaesthetist, the procedure takes between 1 to 2 hours depending on the size of the area being treated. Recovery is supervised by a Registered Nurse on a one-on-one basis. Privacy and attention to your comfort are guaranteed!
