Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove localized excess fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, waist, back, hips, thighs, knees, arms, or neck that does not disappear despite diet or exercise.

The incisions are short and discreet, being usually hidden in a natural fold. The fat is suctioned out with cannulas, and the amount of fat suctioned out is adjusted to the texture of the underlying skin. The surgeon extracts as much as fat that the body allows.

Liposuction is not accepted as a method of weight loss. Liposuction does not improve cellulite, dimples or other skin surface irregularities. Likewise, liposuction does not remove stretch marks.

To be a candidate for liposuction:
Be in good health and have no medical conditions that could complicates the surgery.
Unable to eliminate stubborn fat deposits.
BMI of less than 30
Emotionally stable and realistic expectations of the liposuction outcome

Traditional liposuction is the most invasive form of liposuction.
In traditional liposuction, fat cells are loosened by movement the back and forth motion of a cannula and then suctioned out.

VASER Liposuction uses ultrasound energy for a minimally invasive aesthetic body contouring procedure that produces dramatic results with less pain and downtime than traditional liposuction. VASER Lipo is tumescent lipo with an additional step to liquefy the fat cells before they are suctioned out.

In VASER liposuction, cannulas are inserted through small incisions into the deep layer of fat. The key difference in VASER liposuction is the way the fat cells are detached.

Instead of using motion, VASER (which stands for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance) uses probes that resonate at a high ultrasound frequency. This process "shakes off" fat cells while leaving surrounding tissue undamaged.


Provides the surgeon with advanced technology compared to traditional liposuction:

  • Minimally invasive
  • Powerful enough to eliminate large areas of fat and gentle enough to treat more sensitive areas.
  • Surrounding tissue is less damaged (no cannula movement required to break up fat cells)
  • Outpatient - you can go home immediately afterwards
  • Very precise and can target very specific areas
  • Can be used to create a natural contouring effect
  • Reduced surgeon fatigue
  • Improved skin retraction
  • Less pain, swelling and downtime
  • Less post-operative discomfort
  • Can treat multiple areas in a single procedure
  • Results are visible in as little as 1 week with precise sculpting

Before The Procedure

Before the operation the necessary medical examinations will be made.

Day D- 30

Smoking cessation is strongly recommended as it delays wound healing and may prolong overall postoperative recovery time. Oral contraceptive discontinuation may be required if appropriate risk factors are present.

Day D - 10

Aspirin, herbal teas, vitamins and blood thinners must no longer be taken.

Day D – 2

Please do not drink alcohol 48 hours prior to surgery. Please remove your nail polish as oxygen levels can be measured on your nails.

-8 hours

Do not eat or drink anything for 8 hours prior to surgery.

Treatment Details

Surgical Scar None
Duration The length of the procedure depends on how much liposuction is performed.
It is usually under three hours for one area.
It is possible for liposuction to take up to several hours, but each surgery is different and depends on the individual patient and surgeon
Type Of Anesthesia General anesthesia
Risk Adverse reaction to anesthesia.
Fluid accumulation beneath the skin (seroma).
Infection: you may be given antibiotics during and after surgery to prevent infection.
Smoking increases this risk
Side Effect Bruising
Persistent pain
Changes in skin sensation
Allergic reaction
Recovery Time Return to work depends on the nature of the occupational activity, but it may take up to 1 week.
4 to 6 weeks before you can get back to physical activities, such as exercise.
Long-term recovery typically takes 3 months.
Recovery time varies, depending on factors such as: The amount of liposuction and the age of the recipient. Individuals should discuss their recovery period with their surgeon, who can provide an estimate based on the individual's situation.


After the procedure, the patient may experience numbness in the treated areas, the skin may have an undulating appearance, and some bruising and swelling can also be expected.

The postoperative course is moderately painful and edema (swelling) or bruising (contusion) may occur. A feeling of "sleepy skin" may occur for a few weeks or months.

The compression garment should be worn day and night for at least 6 weeks.

The result

A period of 6 months is necessary to assess the result, although a significant change can be seen after 6 weeks.

In addition to the initial consultation, you will receive a full information sheet about the procedure, which you should read carefully in order to make an informed decision.

After liposuction the patient might need some lymphatic drainage massage for better results.
