Liposuction is a body modelling procedure that is especially recommended for patients whose adipose tissue is especially resistant to diet and exercise. Fat can be removed from the abdomen, back, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, neck, chin, cheeks and shoulders. This is a true body shaping procedure, and not a method for overall weight loss. It is important to plan a healthy diet and exercise so that the effects of the procedure are maintained.
In case of liposuction, there are many techniques. During the consultation, we will discuss options and help you understand the terminology. Also, we’ll discuss the pros and cons of each option to help you make an informed decision. At Mandala Beauty Clinic we have been using VASER Lipo method for many years.
Liposuction is usually combined with other treatments such as abdominoplasty or breast surgery. Sometimes patients experience minor increases in body fat that do not want to go away, regardless of the intensity of exercise and diet. Usually, performing an additional minor liposuction during another procedure is not a problem especially if the patient is under anaesthesia. Complex liposuction procedures are performed separately to minimize the risk during surgery. Safety is our priority.
RECOVERY AFTER LIPOSUCTION:
Swelling may persist for four to six weeks after surgery, and total recovery lasts approx. three months. We recommend lymphatic massage after liposuction. Lymphatic massage stimulates the lymphatic circulation to rapidly remove fluid, proteins and toxins from cells and direct them back to the bloodstream. The end result is a reduction of bruises and oedema, and faster recovery after liposuction. An absence of sensation in the area treated with liposuction is natural. It is temporary, however, return to a normal state may take a year. In this case, we urge patients to exercise right after surgery. At Mandala, we use the minimally invasive VASER Lipo method so the incisions are minute (needed only to insert a cannula) and heal quickly. Bruises are a natural and temporary symptom.
We advise patients to wear a flexible bandage (a type of a corset worn under their garment) for 6 weeks. This minimizes swelling and prevents deformation of the modelled area.
We often get the question: is it possible that after liposuction you see a visible weight gain in the untreated areas? The answer to this question is usually negative. However, some patients experience less weight gain in liposuction areas. Therefore, if they gain weight at all it is visible in other areas of the body first. We always emphasize that in order to avoid this situation, after liposuction try to maintain your weight.
