Liposuction at Aestheticon®
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction (lipoplasty) is a procedure that can help contour your body by removing unwanted fat and inches from certain parts of the body, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, arms and chin. Liposuction is not a replacement for diet or exercise, but it helps selected patients get rid of stubborn areas that do not respond to other weight loss methods. With weight loss, the fat cells in your body only shrink – they do not disappear. Liposuction surgery actually removes the fat cells from your body.
At Aestheticon we utilize a combination of tumescent liposuction and if necessary external ultrasound or radiofrequency. When used together, these methods provide the patient with a smoother contour and a quick recovery, with minimal pain or bruising. There will be a noticeable difference in your body contour almost immediately after liposuction surgery and a small amount of swelling that will continue to subside for a few weeks after. Your new contour will remain permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you gain weight after your liposuction surgery, the weight will distribute itself evenly throughout your body and will not settle in the same problem areas.

The procedure itself will be performed at one of our partner hospitals either in general anesthesia or local anesthesia. Smaller and selected cases can be operated on in our clinic procedure room at Aestheticon.
The surgery may take between 30 minutes to 4 hours, depending on the areas and the amount of fat being removed. For the safety and wellbeing of our patients we will discuss a maximum amount of fat removal, typically not more than 6 to 8 liters in one session.
Recovery time is usually quick with majority of patients being back to their daily routine within 2 to 5 days.
Reduction of swelling and skin shrinkage will go on for up to 3 months after the surgery. A compression garment should be worn for at least 4 weeks.
