Liposuction

To improve your body contour by the means of new and outstanding techniques. These different surgical procedures reshape the body by removing exercise-resistant fat deposits responsible for unsightly profiles.

These surgeries are most often carried out under local anaesthesia with or without a mild sedation and do not require a hospitalisation.

After a consultation with the surgeon followed by a complete evaluation establishing the areas to be treated, the skin tone, and the consistency of fat, the surgery can take place.

For a period of 3 to 4 weeks, a post-surgical compression garment must be worn and the final results will be visible after two to three months.

On surgery day, marks are drawn on the areas to be treated. A local anaesthesia is given. Incisions of a few millimetres are then made to insert a cannula. This cannula or tiny tube will deliver a solution that will anaesthetise more efficiently the treated area, “plump” up the fat tissues which makes the removal easier. This solution largely contributes in minimising the bleedings and therefore minimises the post surgery bruising. Small cannulas will then be used to perform the liposuction. They allow obtaining smoother results.

The treatment is not painful since done under local anaesthesia. After the surgery, a pain or soreness of the treated zone is usually felt.

The small incisions will slowly disappear with time, to the point where they’ll be hardly visible. The risk of complications is quite minimal. The convalescence period is of a few days only.

The body produces fat cells at puberty. Passed this stage, the body does not produce any anymore. The fat removed by liposculpture will therefore never be replaced again. You will then be able enjoy your new shape, the shape of your dreams, and forget all about your old profile.

Areas treated by liposuccion

  • The riding breeches: The oedema takes a rather long time to disappear especially if a liposuction of the hips took place at the same time.
  • Hips: Gives very good results at any age because of the elasticity of the skin. The surgery is fast and almost painless since this area is not as innervated as others. Moreover, since the hips are fairly high, the oedema disappears quite easily.
  • Inner thighs: Inner thighs skin is thin, fragile, prone to stretch marks, and this area can be the first to show a loss of skin elasticity with either age. If the skin is in good shape and the hip fairly rounded with a moderate fat overload, a liposuction is enough. On the other hand if the skin is not in good shape and makes waves-like stretch marks all along upper thigh, the liposuction is not enough. A thigh lift will also be necessary to remove the excess of skin.
  • Knees: The inner knee bump gives to leg a heavy and unsightly appearance. A liposuction is well indicated since the skin in this area is resistant has a certain tightness degree.
  • Calves and ankles: it is necessary to consider the calves and the ankles together to keep a harmonious line since a thick ankle upon a very fine calf would gibe an awkward look. On the calves, the fat layer is seldom significant and the tiniest imperfection is visible. The Ankle is a fussy area zone because the skin is thick and the fat not clearly delimited. Straight cylindrical legs are always hereditary and a liposuction is not indicated in those cases.
  • The belly: one makes from 1 to 3 incisions on the pubis surface, the navel or both. Fat, from 1 to 2 cm of is left to the deep dermis to obtain an even layer. For older patients, less fat will be removed due to the skin restrained retraction ability.
  • The chin: Fat removal is the best technique for small areas like the chin and can be easily adapted to each individual morphological feature.

Care associated with a liposuction

After a liposuction, one would suggest massages to reduce the oedema. They should be very gentle at first, then more energetic.
