When dieting no longer works, and mind and body suffer from increasing fat, then an operative procedure is possibly the suitable option. One of the most frequent treatments of cosmetic surgery is liposuction. A detailed liposuction abolishes unsightly fat and exact body regions can be corrected and remodelled. Experienced surgeons and of course, our clinic, prefer to use local anaesthetic. The once-quantitative fat cells will never form again. Liposuction is suitable for areas like the stomach, hips, thighs, calves, ankles, knees and chin, but not however, for weight reduction. A simultaneous firming of the stomach during the fat removal treatment is recommended.
Before the operation:
As in every operation, a consultation and blood test are extremely important.For 14 days before and 7 after, please avoid any intake of medicine containing aspirin.
On the day of the operation you should wear comfortable clothing. Because the application of the anaesthetic mixes with some blood in the next hours and can seep from the cut, we recommend dark and simple sports clothes.
We need to see doctors’ notes, an x-ray and a current haemogram (the haemogram can be performed in our clinic)
Under local anaesthetic, a fine cannula (tube) will be inserted into the fatty tissue. The incisions are only millimetres large and after a few weeks are scarcely noticeable.This method ensures only a small danger of injury to the nerves or blood cells.A clear reduction of fatty tissue can be seen after liposuction
The operation can be undertaken under local or general anaesthetic, where we recommend anaesthetising larger skin areas.A consultation regarding this can take place with our anaesthetist.
Post-operative bleeding can sometimes occur. This is not to be confused with secretion of the anaesthetic fluid.In the operated areas swelling, bruising and temporary numbness can occur after a few days. After 2 or 3 weeks this will usually subside.
Stay in the clinic:
Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis. After just 4 or 5 hours you can go home accompanied. However, we recommend staying for 1 or 2 nights in our clinic. We provide round-the-clock care, and from the first day, you will be helped by a nurse to walk, eat at the table and use the bathroom.
After the operation:
Conclusive results will first be seen after a few months. For six weeks you will wear a special corset or bodice which we will choose for you.In the first few days your mobility will be slightly limited. Please avoid heavy work, saunas and solaria for 8 weeks.After just 14 weeks you will be able to fully undertake everyday sporting activities again.
