Liposuction is used to get rid of excess fat deposits. The procedure is very effective as liposuction removes fat deposits permanently. Small areas can be treated under local anesthetic and larger areas usually require general anesthetic. During the procedure small amounts of fluid is injected to the fat layer. This makes the suctioning of the fat easier and pain free. We use a modern Water-Jet system in our clinic that enables a quick recovery time and the system doesn’t damage the fat cells. The saved fat cells can be used during the same procedure and can be transferred to a desired area (e.g. face, cheeks, breast, buttocks).
You can go home the same day if your procedure is done under local anesthetic. Liposuction done under general anesthesia may require one night stay in hospital.
Aftercare is important after liposuction. A compression and support garment has to be worn over treated areas for 3-6 weeks. Bruising and swelling are common after the procedure, this will ease in 3-4 weeks. The true end result will only be seen after couple of months post procedure. When needed, the Vela-Shape body reshaping system is used to firm the skin after liposuction.
