Here in New Zealand we love the sun and the bright, joyful vibrancy that summer brings. However with the warm, hazy enjoyment of summer vacations comes a darker side and that side is often branded across our faces in the form of pigmentation. Pigmentation problems are common in New Zealand, often caused by our love of the sun and New Zealand’s overall high UV rates. Sun exposure can cause a number of cosmetic concerns, namely fine lines and wrinkles as well as pigmentation. However, with pigmentation other factors can come into play to form a range of concerns from sun spots, melasma, age spots, seborrhoiec keratosis and pigmented birth marks.

Appearance is one facet of life where we can exert some control – our style of hair, makeup and clothing, size and shape of our bodies. Diet and exercise can help us to shed kilos and look better in our clothing; however it’s not always that easy and we can and do experience troublesome, problem areas. Troubled by your tummy’s appearance? The abdomen or tummy area is a problem spot for many women, particularly after childbirth. No matter how restrictive the diet or how many crunches one does, the fat deposits do not seem to budge. Fortunately, the abdomen is an area of the body that responds extremely well to liposuction.

Liposuction requires a trained aesthetic eye; this along with excellent technique and constant review during the procedure will deliver the best final results.

No matter what the area of concern, we will be able to apply our many years of experience and knowledge to inform you of the realistic transformational affects and deliver it for you. 

Start the conversation… because like all surgical procedures there are risks associated with liposuction.

If you are curious or keen to find out whether you are a suitable candidate for Liposuction, a full assessment can be made at your initial consultation and recommendations given including costs.

What areas can be treated?

Outer Thighs

“Saddle bags” as they are often known, are accumulations of fat over the outer thigh. Removing this fat gets rid of the bulge and delivers a shapelier affect. 

Inner Thighs

Often there is fullness to the inner thighs which can cause discomfort as they rub together when walking or running. Liposuction can substantially reduce this bulkiness and give a natural curve to the inner thigh. 


A small pad of fatty tissue is often present on the inside of the knee. Liposuction can remove this bulge, so that the knee is defined by the bone, rather than the fatty pad above it. 

Whole Leg

Sometimes there is a general increase in the fatty tissue of the leg and treatment above and below the knee is necessary to reduce the volume of the fatty material and allow it to be reduced in size. 


The abdomen is a problem area for many women, particularly after childbirth. Liposuction is helpful in these situations, and skin laxity is rarely a problem after the procedure.  


Full hips can have an unpleasant effect on the overall shape of the body. Either alone, or in combination with the abdomen, it is possible to refine the outline to give a more youthful feminine appearance.


In both men and women the neck and under the chin can be successfully sculptured to give a more youthful appearance. 

Men’s Love Handles

In general men’s unwanted fatty deposits are most commonly over the abdomen and the flanks or ‘love handles’. Liposuction can help men achieve a leaner and more masculine shape.

Women’s Neck

The neck and under the chin can be successfully sculptured to give a more youthful appearance.

Varicose veins pain

Veins are the blood vessels that take the blood from your feet and legs back to the heart, ready for another cycle around the body. This means the blood in your leg veins should flow upwards. When your veins don’t work properly, they let blood flow backwards down the leg. This can cause you to have heavy, achy, tired or swollen legs, which feel worse when standing still. You get relief when you elevate your legs, as the bloods flows up the leg, back to the heart, under the influence of gravity.
