Do you want to slim down and harmonize your silhouette through cosmetic surgery? To permanently eliminate certain fats from your body, gentle liposuction is the most suitable cosmetic procedure. A cosmetic surgeon can sculpt specific areas of your body with great precision, according to your expectations and your needs.
Hailed by both women and men, gentle liposuction technique offers impressive results!
Liposuction (or lipo-aspiration) is the classic technique for silhouette and body-contouring. It allows the permanent removal of localized and diffuse fat. By suctioning the fat regularly and evenly, liposuction reshapes your body with a natural and harmonious result.
At the Clinique de la Croix d’Or, your cosmetic surgeon uses a liposuction technique that consists of introducing round-tipped cannula into micro-incisions, to mobilize and aspirate the adipocytes.
The goal is as natural a result as possible.
This treatment is intended for small and moderate fatty areas. The operation may be performed on patients with a BMI in the normal or overweight range. In cases of excessive obesity, the operation can be compromised. The cosmetic surgeon decides on the feasibility of the procedure during the first appointment.
The main areas to be treated:
- thighs: inside and outside (saddlebags)
- hips, or love handles
- inside the knees
- the face (double chin, jowls, the oval of the face)
- the pectoral area in men
The procedure takes place under local or general anesthesia, depending on the scale of the intervention. Liposuction is most often performed on an out-patient basis, but may require overnight hospitalization in the event of major treatment. The procedure can take from thirty minutes to three hours, depending on the amount of fat and the number of areas to be treated.
Side effects following liposuction
The frequency and intensity of side effects are generally proportional to the amount of fat removed.
The patient may experience discomfort a few days after the operation. Pain is rare, occurring only in sensitive areas such as the hips.
Swelling and bruising are not uncommon. Moderate compression is applied to the treated areas (in the form of a sheath or panty) to provide comfort. We recommend compression for at least 15 days.
On the third day, lymphatic drainage physiotherapy enhances the results and limits post-operative bruising.
It is possible to exercise three weeks after the treatment.
We systematically re-examine patients within two weeks to verify the results and perform any necessary retouching.
The final desired effect appears after three weeks and will be fully effective for at least 4-6 months.
The obtained result is lasting, because fat cells are permanently removed. If there is weight gain, the remaining fat cells may increase in size, but no new fat cells can be produced.
