Liposuction is a common cosmetic procedure that removes unwanted persistent compartments of fat around the body. Often referred to as ‘lipo’, it is not an answer for people just wanting to reduce their weight, but instead, a practice that eradicates fat deposits in areas that can be particularly difficult to lose naturally.
A high amount of exercise and healthy eating may not be enough to eliminate all fat stored in the body. Therefore, this provides an adequate solution. Shifting this weight can hone and refine physical appearance in crucial body areas such as hips, thighs, buttocks, stomach, and upper arms, thus improving self-confidence.
Liposuction procedure is the extraction by the suction of fatty tissue under the skin through small holes. These holes do not usually leave a visible scar. Therefore, after treatment, it is unnoticeable that you have had liposuction.
The duration of the procedure is determined according to the size of the surgical site where the fat tissue between the skin and the muscle is pulled through. The bigger the area, the more the time that is required for the operation.
Liposuction is a surgery that requires a lot of care and experience. The decision sucking from the surface and deep in the body, and how much liposuction from the patient that needs to be done are decisions that are to be made with caution. Liposuction may also use lasers and ultrasonic energies. However, these are auxiliary devices which cannot be named as a technique.
Liposuction surgery can be performed in the form of high def liposuction in suitable people. In this procedure, normal liposuction in the body as well as muscle anatomy is intended to become clear.
You have a dedicated team of patient advisors, nurses, and your surgeon to support you throughout the entire journey, and after it. However, Liposuction is a surgery that demands you to take several steps to help ensure that your treatment goes as smoothly as possible. Avoiding some points can help you recover faster, and also minimize the risk of complications.
Share all the details regarding medicines you have been prescribed before, with your surgeon.
Smoking is prohibited, including electronic cigarettes, and this due to there being potential risks post-surgery, and slower recovery times. You must also refrain from all other tobacco products.
You should attempt to have a stabilized body weight prior to your surgery. In the period of three weeks before surgery, you should not lose more than 2 kilograms.
Please refrain from consuming herbal products such as teas and supplements.
You must not take medication such as coraspin, aspirin, ecopirin, coumadin, clexan, or any other type of blood thinning medicines.
Painkillers are only allowed to be taken if they contain paracetamol. If you must take them – and they don’t contain paracetamol – inform your surgeon and they will advise.
Check your weight status with your surgeon and inform him of any changes.
Eating and drinking eight hours prior to your surgery is not permitted. This also includes drinking water and chewing gum.
We advise to take a shower twice in quick succession before your operation. Once, the night before, and if possible, again on the morning of surgery.
We kindly ask you not to wear jewelry, put on makeup and remove contact lenses on the day of your operation.

Your Liposuction will be carried out with the utmost care by your surgeon and you can be sure that the same standard of care will continue during the regular post operative checks to ensure a smooth recovery.
The procedure may be conducted under local or general anaesthesia, depending on the size of the field of use. Post-liposuction discomfort is generally mild. This is because your surgeon dilates the fatty tissue with the solution and usually adds local anaesthetics to the solution to extract the fat.
You'll need to wear a garment or bandage on the liposuction region for about 20 days. These special garments are typically not seen through the clothing, because they're very thin. You can get back to your social life between 1 day to 1 week depending on the size of your application area.
