Liposuction (hydro-liposuction, lipo-sculpturing) is a term for the surgical procedure which brings body into a better shape by suction of the fat from certain parts of it. Typical accumulations which have negative impact on female body are the abdominal wall, thighs, hips, area of riding trousers, internal part of the knee, upper arm and chin. Liposuction is sometimes performed due to thickening of the ankles and around that zone.
Accumulation of fat tissue disturb the harmonious structure of the male body, particulary in the area of waist, lower abdomen and chest (ginecomasty).
Liposuction is not a slimming method, therefore it is not recommended for significantly overweight persons.
Procedure is performed in a manner to first introduce liquid to facilitate the removal of fat tissue and diminish the bleeding, after which hollow tubes are used to remove excess fat in symmetric layers on both sides. After the completion of the procedure, the skin is adapted to the newly created form. To faciliate this procedure, patient wears a bodice for a few weeks.
Nowdays the so called oscillating hollow tubes are being used, which enable the insertion of much thinner tubes so the recovery is much faster and the bruising is less expressed.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
"There are two types of cellulite. One is primary, characterized by the skin looking like the orange peel. This is the result of a special configuration of fat boxes in the subcutaneous tissue, whose main cause is the female hormone estrogen. Men do not have cellulite because their level of estrogen is significantly lower than the female one.
The other type of cellulite is the so called secondary cellulite where the skin falls in creases and waves due to the loss of elasticity. The so called superficial liposuction may somewhat improve this condition, but it does not correct it completely. This condition cannot be corrected for the time being."
With smaller liposuctions (slimmer persons) or with liposuctions of the smaller number of regions, the recovery is usually shorter and lasts for about one week. With more extensive liposuctions the recovery is somewhat longer. The procedure is moderately painful and the pain may be controlled by usual analgesics. Bruising is present in the area of the intervention. It is resorbed within a couple of weeks. There is also an internal feeling of numbness which goes away after some time. It is recommended that the patients are active after some ten days because physical activity (riding a bike, stepper, gym) facilitate the resorption of haematoma. Lymph drainage is also recommended.
