Avenue Plastic Surgery is here to help you make the informed choice

What you need to know

Fat deposits in certain areas simply cannot be lost through diet and exercise no matter how hard we try. An otherwise fit person can have unwanted fat in specific spots on the knees, thighs, buttocks, hips, upper arms, abdomen or under the chin. That’s where our liposuction services have helped thousands of patients.

Liposuction is the permanent removal of unwanted fat cells to reveal a slimmer, more contoured body. At Avenue Plastic Surgery Melbourne, our approach is not just about fat loss but rebuilding your self-esteem and confidence.

Thanks to the fully equipped, adjacent Private Hospital your liposuction can be performed as a Day Case. We’re able to provide the highest standard of care and safety before, during and after your procedure by having everything under one roof. The procedure takes less than an hour and our patients can return home by the afternoon with overnight stays also available. The Day Surgery system provides extensive support during your recovery period, and you will be seen on the morning after your surgery with regular sessions during the recovery period. Within 3 days, approximately 90% of our liposuction patients return to normal activity.

Our Innovative Approach to Liposuction

Over the past decade, we have developed several new liposuction techniques that allow for more precise results, less bruising and rapid recovery. Having performed hundreds of liposuction procedures, Dr Kalus and Dr Taras are able to select the most appropriate technique for your body to provide you with the best contour improvement and the least swelling and bruising.

Is Liposuction right for you?

The purpose of liposuction is to re-contour the body by removing excess fat from specific areas. It is not designed to remove very large amounts of fat. In general, we can safely remove 1-3 litres of fat during surgery. The ideal candidate for liposuction is therefore at a close-to-normal body weight. Speak with one of our surgeons, Dr Allan Kalus or Dr Angie Taras, about your options to determine whether liposuction is appropriate for you.


Have you considered other body procedures?

At our Melbourne clinic, liposuction can be combined with abdominoplasty or breast lift to provide a complete body makeover. Thanks to our pioneering surgical innovations, the fat harvested during your liposuction procedure can now be used for breast augmentation with fat transfer. We also offer non-surgical body contouring procedures that require no anaesthetic or downtime.

Have you heard about Micro Lipo?

Micro lipo refers to the removal of smaller areas of excess fat (for example from the hips or tummy) under local anaesthetic. Micro lipo is designed to treat areas about the size of your hand and is, we believe, a quicker, safer and more effective alternative to non-surgical methods of fat removal such as ‘UltraShape’ and ‘CoolSculpt.’
