How is the procedure carried out?
The patient is treated under general anesthesia (or analgosedation in combination with tumescence). The procedure lasts around one hour. However, the length of the procedure depends on the extent of the procedure being carried out. The problem areas have small 3-4 mm incisions made which are specific for the area being treated. A suction canella is inserted into these incisions and a special device then sucks out the fat. One procedure can result in the maximum removal of 2000 to 3000 ml of fat so that the method remains safe and the patient's health is not endangered. If more fat needs to be sucked out that the maximum recommended amount, a subsequent procedure is planned with the necessary time break.
How long does recovery take?
Following the surgery, the patient is given elastic sleeves and is released on the following day into home care. The stitches are removed 10 days after the procedure took place and the client should rest for a period of one week. The elastic sleeves should be worn for a period of two months following the surgery. They can be removed following the doctor's assessment. Removal of the fat is permanent.
