Liposuction – aspiration of fat

Aspiration of fat – liposuction, is a surgical procedure, during which are reduced subcutaneous fat deposits by an aspiration of a certain quantity of fat where it is excessively accumulated.

The procedure is performed in local or in general anaesthesia in an operation theatre. It is possible to remove fatty deposits on the abdomen, buttocks or double chin within one to two hours. During a tumescent method, it is possible to efficiently and more gently perform removal of fat cells. It can be used also in cases when mechanical liposuction was not sufficiently effective. The procedure targets fatty tissue, there is a smaller loss of blood, the risk to develop irregularities is decreased and recovery is faster. Liposuction is performed for the following body parts:

Operation procedure

Withdraw medication such as Acylpyrin, Aspro, Aspyrin, Mironal for one week before surgery as these drugs contain acetylsalicylic acid, which causes bleeding.

Tissue is initially filled with a special solution using a fine needle, which causes constriction of vessels and bleeding after surgery is than lower; fat cells are more fragile and they can be aspirated more easily. Then, using a liposuction cannula and liposuction device creating suction is performed the actual aspiration. The procedure is not suitable for reduction of weight, but to shape certain body parts. It is limited by skin elasticity. It leaves only minimal 3 mm long scars. It is usually performed in general anaesthesia, only smaller body part may be aspirated in an outpatient setting in local anaesthesia.

Post-surgery

Recovery after liposuction lasts usually 1 week; swellings remain for up to 2 months, so the effect of the surgery is not visible immediately. There are bruises for several weeks. Elastic clothing is required for 6-8 weeks. It is also necessary to perform pressure massage on the aspirated sites until complete softening, which could last for approximately 2 months.
