The Most Frequently Asked Questions About Liposuction

If the skin elasticity is normal, the excess skin recedes within a few weeks and adapts to the new body shape. This regression is very well supported by wearing the compression garment.
The most common areas for liposuction are the abdomen, saddlebags on the outer thighs, the back, the arms, the inner thighs, the knees, the lateral abdominal region, the area from the lower leg to the ankle, the neck and the lower jaw, and in men, if necessary, the chest (gynecomastia).
The small stitches in the skin, so-called stitch incisions, which are necessary during liposuction, usually heal without scars and are hardly or not at all visible later.
Take it easy on yourself for a few days. During the first 2 days, a little fluid that is introduced into the body during liposuction may leak from the wounds. This is quite normal and no cause for concern. You may shower from the 1st postoperative day. For the further course, it is important to wear the provided compression garment permanently for about 2-6 weeks, depending on the extent of liposuction.
Liposuction is performed on patients who suffer from annoying fat deposits. It is therefore best suited for treating problem areas and reshaping areas of the body. Liposuction, on the other hand, is not suitable for weight loss. Patients should be in good general health and not have any serious chronic diseases.
As a rule, the procedure is performed under general anesthesia. If only individual areas are affected, Vaser liposuction (liposuction) can also be performed with the help of local anesthesia, if necessary. Liposuction lasts between 1 and 2 hours. If the treatment involves particularly large areas of the body, the procedure may sometimes take longer.
After the surgery, some soreness, comparable to that of a severe bruise or hematoma, is noticeable. However, this pain can be treated with common, freely available painkillers.
The subcutaneous tissue reacts to liposuction with swelling. This swelling is reduced in the following weeks. However, this stimulates the connective tissue, which steadily tightens and firms within a few weeks due to the liposuction performed.
This varies from case to case. By all means, tumescent fluid can leak through the incisions made for liposuction in the first 2-3 days. Therefore, you will receive absorbent compresses under the dressing for the first time to absorb this fluid. Usually, after the 2nd postoperative day, no more fluid leaks from the treated areas.
