This procedure is not a slimming method, but a way to remove excessive fat located in isolated areas that cannot be lost with a diet and intensive exercise. It is also called liposplasty. As well as the thighs and buttock, the hips, the internal part of the knees and abdomen, liposuction can also successfully address other problems such as gooseneck.
Depending on the cases, it is performed under local anaesthetic, neuroleptic analgesia, or general anaesthetic. The duration of the procedure varies between fifteen minutes and two hours. Fatty tissue is removed through a cannula which may sometimes be ultrasound assisted to preserve subcuticular vessels. The cannula is introduced through a small incision, which will not be noticeable afterwards. Fat is progressively harvested but a one centimetre fat layer is kept under the skin so as to avoid any possible irregularities. Superficial cellulite is hardly altered.
Duration Of The Stay In Hospital
The patient will stay in hospital for two days if the procedure is performed under general anaesthetic. In some cases, he or she may stay only for a day.
