What once was a six-pack: Get back your momentum!
If making a tie knot, mowing or taking care of your car would be considered sports, you probably would not have any problems. But where is the time to finally do something for yourself and your body? Many of our patients come to us to get rid of annoying fat deposits. One thing to keep in mind: liposuction is supposed to improve your body contour, it is not intended to make you lose weight.
Whether thighs, knees, calves, buttocks, abdomen, hips, chest, arm, flank or chin: A liposuction can be performed anywhere. There are no limits. We pierce fine cannulas through the skin to suck the fatty tissue off evenly. This is done either under general anaesthesia, local anaesthesia or with a so-called tumescence anaesthesia. Into the fatty tissue a large amount of fluid is injected along with local narcotics. This loosens up the tissue, anaesthetises it and can then be vacuumed off more easily.
We work with both the WAL (waterjet assisted liposuction) and the VAL (vibration assisted liposuction) system. Tumescence anaesthesia treats the tissue even more gently. After liposuction you should wear a compression garment for at least six weeks. This will help in shrinking the skin and thus optimize the result. Normal physical activity is allowed. Only sports should be avoided. Since a significant amount of fluid is required in tumescence anaesthesia, there may be a slight outflow through the puncture channels after surgery – along with slight swellings and numbness. This can be a bit uncomfortable, similar to sore muscles.
