Liposuction is amongst the most frequently performed procedures and therefore enjoys huge attention in the press. All kinds of new technologies are being touted to sell expensive devices.
One should never forget that this is a real operation with its own risk profile, and that it should therefore be performed under the safest possible conditios with tried and tested methods.
Whats new in our approach?
If you wish to be part of our ´shapeup´ program you will be seen by a dietician, a personal trainer and the plastic surgeon to find a comprehensive way to address your desire to change your body image. We want you to have a lasting result!
You might find that dietary measures and sports under proper guidance will suffice for you.
If there is a need for surgery the Plastic surgeon will see you for an individual consultation.
Properatively the target areas will be marked standing. The operation can be performed under local anaesthesia with sedation or under General anaesthesia. An anaesthetic solution is being instilled through small stabs, which prevents pain and blood loss. The fat will be removed through these small openings with fine cannulae. At times one will reinject fat in places, where you have irregularities, the socalled bodysculpting.
The wound closure will be with waterproof dressings, which allow you to shower. There are no stitches. Normally you will be expected to wear a compression garment for about 3 weeks. There are no other limitations but avoidance of intense sport in the postoperative period.
