Liposuction in Düsseldorf

Thanks to modern liposuction methods, fat cells can be permanently removed from problem areas. Since genetics and hormones play a huge role in the distribution of fat in our body, certain fatty deposits cannot be removed or are difficult to remove with diet and exercise. In this case, liposuction is a suitable way of permanently improving the proportions of the body. This is the only way to effectively reduce the natural number of fat cells.

On which areas of the body can liposuction be performed?

  Fatty tissue can be removed from almost all areas of the body. The most common areas are the abdomen, hips and the legs. Other typical areas are the chin and the upper arms.

How does liposuction work?

  First, the fatty tissue is bloated with a special solution. After a certain reaction time, the fatty cells can be removed from the connective tissue through tiny incisions using fine cannulas. One of the latest techniques we use is power-assisted lipoplasty (PAL technology from MicroAire). This technique ensures that the fatty tissue is removed evenly and safely while protecting the surrounding structures, such as the nerves, connective tissue, blood and lymphatic vessels.

What is involved in the liposuction procedure?

  Depending on the number and the size of the areas, the procedure takes 1 to 2 hours. Smaller amounts of fat can be easily removed as an outpatient procedure using local anaesthetic; however, for larger amounts, it is recommended to use general anaesthesia and to spend a night in the clinic. The surgeon can also be reached via an emergency mobile number after the surgery if any complications arise. Showers can be resumed on the 2nd day after the surgery. Strenuous exercises should be avoided for 4 to 6 weeks. After the liposuction, patients are required to wear a special compression garment for a total of 6 weeks. The first check-up visit is after 1 week, and the final follow-up is after 12 weeks.

What result can be expected?

  The biggest advantage of liposuction is undoubtedly the ability to remove stubborn fat cells that cannot be eliminated by exercise. The result is permanent, fat cells that have been removed cannot grow back. However, this does not mean that patients will not gain weight again in the treated areas as the remaining fat cells can still store fat. A balanced diet and regular exercise are recommended in order to maintain the result.

What are the risks?

  There is always a certain risk with surgery, however this is greatly reduced if the treatment is performed by an experienced surgeon. The most common side effects are bruising or slight swelling. They are usually not a major problem because they disappear by themselves. A personal consultation is required before undergoing liposuction.
