Re-shaping the body by removing fat deposits from various body parts, such as hips, thighs, back, upper and lower abdomen, “saddle-bags”, internal part of the thighs and knees, lower legs, ankles and inner part of the upper arms. The removed fat tissue may be filtrated as needed and put back into those body parts where there is a need for it (bumps, dimples, natural wrinkles, lip, cheekbone, bottom enhancing, etc.)
Through a minor skin prick, with special instruments (cannulas) inserted under the skin, aspiration of the fat tissue is performed. The cannulas should have various sizes and shapes (2-6 mm in diameter) in order to extract the fat evenly from all the layers. The aspiration process can be previously facilitated with inserting (infiltration) of the physiological solution with adrenaline for prevention of bleeding, as well as possible ultrasound breaking of the fat tissue.
Duration of procedure and anaesthesia
Depending on the affected regions, the liposuction can last 1–5 hours and is usually carried out in the peridural anaesthesia along with analgo-sedation.
Return to normal activities after 5-7 days. Right after the intervention the patient puts on the corset that should be worn for at least three weeks for shrinkage of the excess skin.
Transitory appearance of bruises, suffusions (haematomas), as well as swellings that gradually withdraw within up to two weeks; transitory skin sensibility disorders, as well as possible smaller bumps, due to which an early post-operative massage and lymph drainage are recommended.
