Because of the many advantages we only carry out liposuction using local anaesthesia (tumescent local anaesthesia). Infiltrating a large volume of very dilute anaesthetic in the subcutaneous tissue allows the fat to become more fluid for the liposuction procedure. This significantly reduces tissue irritation and the tendency to bleed both during and after the operation. It is, of course, possible to administer sedatives.
Liposuction is carried out using the especially minimally invasive vibration-assisted liposuction technique. Only 4 mm long incisions in the skin are necessary for the thin suction cannulae. Stitches are not required, only skin adhesive.
Directly after the operation you will be able to leave the operating room independently. During the next 4 weeks a compression garment should be worn.
