KM Surgical Treatments & Procedures

At KM Surgical we specialise in minimally invasive and effective cosmetic surgery procedures that can be carried out under local anaesthetic with the option of light oral sedation.  Our focus, in performing your surgery, is also on safety and quick recovery.  

As well as ‘best practice’ techniques at KM Surgical we ensure accurate diagnosis and assessment essential to creating good outcomes.  We have a full range of laser and light based devices as well as in depth experience in the cosmetic surgical procedures and injectable techniques we offer.

We also take an holistic approach, and in the case of facial interventions we understand that facial expression must be preserved and that any facial change must be directed to enhance a healthy and more youthful appearance but not to alter a person’s inherent characteristics and persona.

Cosmetic procedures should never interrupt the delivery of emotion through facial expression and maintained facial feedback is essential.  A natural outcome is what we strive to achieve.  Procedures can help a person to ‘look less severe’ to ‘look less tired or sad’ and this is desirable but they must still look themselves albeit with a more youthful and healthy profile which is the ‘feel good’ factor.

Available procedures & treatments from KM Surgical:

Liposuction (Liposculpture) Body & Facial Contouring

The tumescent liposuction technique has been specially developed by cosmetic dermatologists. It is performed entirely under local anaesthetic and is recognised as the safest form of liposuction. The objective is to improve body contours by removing unwanted fat in a very controlled manner.
