Surgically removes localised excess fat that can persist despite a good diet and exercise regime.

About the treatment

Liposuction is designed to resculpt the figure and not a weight-loss solution. 

Liposuction involves sucking out the excess fatty tissue from underneath the skin and is a procedure that can be performed on both men and women. Depending on the case, the procedure can be carried out under local, spinal or general anaesthetic. The area being treated is injected with a liquid that makes the suction easier and so that there is less haemorrhaging. Your surgeon makes small incisions just a few millimetres deep before inserting a “blunt” needle, i.e. one with a rounded tip, which limits tissue trauma. Once the layer of fat has been reached, a back-and-forward motion detaches the adipocytes which are then sucked out, leaving the nerves and blood vessels unharmed.

During a detailed check-up before the operation, your surgeon will assess how much excess fat there is, the condition of the skin, and any potential circulatory problems that the patient may have. The skin’s elasticity is an essential quality for the success of the procedure.

Following the operation, compression garments are usually worn to promote healing, resculpting of the areas that have been treated, and the reabsorption of oedema.

Avantages

  • Double chins
  • The outer thigh
  • Hips
  • The abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Calves and ankles
  • Arms
  • Jowls

Benefits

Liposuction resculpts the figure, making it slimmer and more harmonious. The first benefits are visible from about 2 to 3 weeks after the operation, however, 3 months are necessary to see the full effects of the procedure. The results are long-lasting and are optimised by healthy eating. Some lymph draining sessions, using Titan and Cellu M6, are recommended to improve the tone and appearance of the skin.

Good to know

Following the procedure, the recovery time is proportional to the amount of fat that has been removed. Bruising appears and lasts for about three weeks. The operation leaves some scarring but these are short-lived and are generally fine and not highly visible.

Just as for any surgical procedure, some complications are possible, such as thrombosis, pulmonary embolisms, infection, necrosis, skin irregularities, recurrence and asymmetry. For each patient, both the risks and benefits of the procedure have to be considered. Detailed and personalised information will be given to you by your surgeon during your consultation.
