What is liposuction?
When liposuction may be carried out?
Are there any necessary preparations before the surgery required?
No special arrangements for this surgery are necessary; the patient gets a blood test, which is prescribed by the plastic surgeon during the consultation. However, if any dietary products have been used, the patient should stop the consumption on those.
What type of anaesthesia is used at the surgery?
Depending on surgery extent and localisation, there may be local, intravenous, general, or spinal anaesthesia applied.
How does the surgery go?
Minor incisions are made in preliminary marked spots during the operation. Those spots are then injected by a special liquid mixture. Afterwards, the excess of subcutaneous fat is removed in feathery strokes via the same incisions by using special cannula and a pump.
How long does the surgery take?
The duration of the surgery depends on the extent of the surgery and the amount of body fat to be sucked out. To put it in numbers, liposuction may last from one to several hours.
What is the risk of liposuction surgery?
Liposuction alone is a low-risk surgery, it is important, however, to reasonably assess the amount of subcutaneous fat to be sucked out, also, not to carry out several big surgeries at one time.
Will I get insurance against complications or other problems?
For liposuction and other plastic surgeries at our partner clinic, you are insured for up to € 35,000 against injury (impairment of health) as a result of direct legitimate actions taken in providing medical services (malpractice insurance).
Can fat be removed from any area of the body?
No, there are limitations. Most common areas of liposuction are the abdomen, waist, inner- and outer thighs, inner surfaces of knees, upper arms, shoulders, pubis and chin.
Are there possible complications?
Liposuction surgery complications are very rare but nevertheless possible, namely: infection, bleeding, skin lesions, nerve injuries (usually get back to normal in several months). If there is too much fat sucked out, some body contour irregularities may occur.
Can the removed fat regenerate again?
The removed fat cells will not regenerate. The human body, however, is apt to accumulate fat, hence, it will generate in other areas.

Is the post-operative period painful?
If the operation is bigger in volume, the postoperative period may get quite painful, hence analgesic consumption is prescribed.
When do patients return to normal daily activity (work) after surgery?
It usually requires one week for patients to return to work.
When is the final outcome of the surgery visible?
The final results are visible in two months after the surgery when the swellings fade away.
Is a girdle necessary?
Yes, of course, special compression clothing must be worn after the surgery for four weeks to improve skin shrinkage.
Are there any scars visible after liposuction surgery?
Micro scars (from 3 to 4 mm in size) remain after liposuction; however, over time, they become hardly noticeable.
Can liposuction be applied for obesity treatment?
How does abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) differ from abdomen liposuction?
During abdominoplasty, the excess abdomen tissues are removed, whilst when abdomen liposuction is performed, only fat cells are sucked out. For that reason, sometimes liposuction alone does not provide the desired aesthetic result.
What amount of the body fat may be sucked out during surgery?
Maximum amount of fat to be suctioned is capped to six litres.
What is the difference between classic liposuction and laser-assisted liposuction?
By performing classic liposuction, results are visible in two months, while with laser-assisted surgery – only in half a year. Not to mention, that bigger amount of fat may be removed surgically than in laser-assisted liposuction. However, the latter leaves no postoperative micro scars.
