Every woman wants to have a beautiful and healthy body. But often changes of body depend on the age, genetics, pregnancy and lifestyle, making beautiful body almost unachievable dream. With the help of our surgeons you can make those changes in figure that fit your emotional and physical needs.
Some fat deposits can be resistant to any diet or sport. In that case liposuction can be helpful.
Liposuction is a local removal of fat deposits in the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and neck.
Liposuction is recommended first of all for people whose excessive body fat is caused by genetic predisposition. Or if it is impossible to get rid of fat deposits with the help of special diet or regular sport.
In contrast to abdominoplasty which is used if there is an overabundance of weak skin and/or fat tissue in the abdominal area, liposuction does not rebuild areas of the body but only removes excessive fat deposits.
Professionally made liposuction will increase your self-esteem.
Indications for liposuction
Liposuction can be the procedure of choice if you have excessive fat deposits in areas such as:
- breast (for men);
- inner and outer thighs;
- knees and ankles;
- hands and armpits;
- cheeks, chin, neck.
How liposuction is performed
Liposuction is performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure fat is sucked off by a special thin tube called “cannula”. Liposuction is often performed in combination with lipofilling.
Lipofilling (or fat transplantation) is used for the formation of facial contours by own fat. Procedure includes fat removal from the donor area (buttocks, thighs, abdomen or back). Then this fat is inserted to the targeted location.
Tummy tuck surgery
Tummy tuck surgery when professionally done creates a perfect, flat and elastic belly. However it is necessary to remember that abdominoplasty is not a means of weight loss. The effect of tummy tuck can be significantly reduced because of fluctuations of your weight.
For this reason people who plan substantial weight loss as well as women who plan a pregnancy are not the best candidates for abdominoplasty. It is better to put off the procedure for later period.
Often abdominoplasty is combined with liposuction. You can discuss the reasonability of such combination with our surgeon.
During 5-7 days after surgery you may need to take pain killers. There will be swelling within 3 weeks. Swelling fully goes out after 2-4 months.
If necessary patients wear a drainage during some period after the intervention. Within 6 weeks after its removal it is recommended to use special bandage.
