What is Liposuction?

Liposuction in women or men, usually hormonal or genetic and sports, gymnastics or diets that can not be reduced by fat deposits can be removed. The extracted fat cells usually do not regenerate, so that a permanent contouring can be achieved with proper nutrition and exercise. Liposuction should not be seen as a diet weight loss treatment, but as a way to correct the figure.

Basic requirements for liposuction:

 

You are over 18 years old, have a physical and mental condition and have realistic ideas: You are not pregnant or breastfeeding, you are not exposed to excessive weight fluctuations.

 

Preparation measures:

 

Nicotine consumption should be reduced approximately 4 weeks before the operation. In addition, alcohol consumption should be avoided, your monthly menstrual period should not fall to the day of surgery. You should not take anticoagulant drugs (aspirin, acetylsalicylic drugs) 2 weeks before the operation, the pill should be discontinued at least 3 weeks before surgery.

 

Surgical preparations and examinations:

 

The operation requires a small blood count and an ECG. You can produce both of these by your GP and bring the findings (no more than 2 weeks). A blood count and an ECG over 40 years old.

 

Operation time:

 

As a rule, surgery takes 1-3 hours. The time depends on the volume of extraction and the number of sites to be extracted. Liposuction is usually hospitalized in the clinic for 1-2 days.

 

Liposuction can be performed in the following areas: upper abdomen, lower abdomen, buttocks, waist, right and left hips, upper / lower legs, knees, male chest, upper arms, back, double chin.

 

The course of the operation and the procedure:

 

Before the surgery, you will be informed in a detailed consultation about the surgical procedure, possible complications, risks and alternatives. Also write down any questions you want to ask about the surgery. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia, but smaller liposections with local anesthetics (eg less than 1000 ml) are possible. Before anesthesia, you will be informed about the anesthesia risks, complications or alternatives of the anesthesiologist. An anesthesiologist is available during the operation. Any anesthetic creates a strain on the body. Any type of anesthesia may include risks or complications depending on general health as well as pre-existing conditions.

 

The process is carried out by inflation.

 

For this purpose, the oil pads in the form of contour lines are marked in the standing position before the operation. A mixture of physiological saline, vasoconstrictor and local anesthetic is injected into the marked points. Because this technique simplifies the absorption process, the fat tissue layer is significantly increased, and therefore, among other things, blood loss can be significantly reduced.

 

Then, small incisions are made at inconspicuous places where a long blind cannula is inserted. Thus, oil deposits can be absorbed by gentle forward and backward movements of the cannula connected to a vacuum pump by a cannula. Fat cells are caught during surgery. This allows the same amount to be drawn from both sides.

 

After suction, the skin incisions are sutured again with a small suture (self-resolving yarns). With this method, the risk of injury to nerves or larger vessels is minimal.

 

Emotion and possible complications:

 

Within the first 24 hours after the procedure, most of the wounds can be secreted more frequently (especially the remnants of the injected saline solution). Swelling can last for 3-6 months or longer (for example, neck area). The tendency to swell is most pronounced in the joint area.

 

Since tissue reactions can never be accurately predicted, small skin irregularities should be expected after surgery. As a rule, these manifest themselves within a few months.

 

As with any surgery, bleeding cannot be ruled out. Therefore, taking acetyl two weeks before surgery
