Liposuction, also called lipo, is the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery in Germany. Patients sometimes suffer severely from their body shape beforehand and cannot reduce the troublesome pockets of fat through sport and diet. Liposuction is often the only way to achieve an aesthetic body silhouette. Many women have liposuction carried out on their abdomen and hips, also known as saddlebags. However, the number of male patients who want to be slimmer, preferably on the breast, but also on the stomach and in the waist area, is also increasing. Through liposuction, fat is sucked out from the desired parts of the body, so that they become slimmer and the whole body gets more beautiful proportions.

Liposuction not only creates a more attractive body shape, but also reduces cellulite, as the unsightly dents are also reduced by liposuction. The fatty tissue, especially the fat cells, are sucked out through fine cannulas inserted through the skin. The fat is dissolved by means of a tumescent solution, vibrations or ultrasound. The most commonly used method is the tumescence technique. In this type of liposuction, a mixture of physiological saline solution, local anaesthetics, a vasoconstrictive agent and bicarbonate is injected into the relevant parts of the body. During a 30-minute application period, these substances cause the fat to swell, where dissolves from the rest of the tissue and can be more easily sucked out. The regions to be treated were marked on the patient’s body before the liposuction. The inconspicuous incisions are now made in these regions, it is through these incisions a cannula is inserted to suck out the fatty tissue. The operation in Berlin lasts between one and several hours and is performed under local anaesthesia. This can also be done with twilight sleep if desired, as well as under general anaesthesia for larger liposuctions. After the liposuction, the patient must wear a compression girdle for several weeks, which supports the shaping of the body and counteracts the swelling. The patient can and may move normally immediately after the operation, but sports should be avoided for the first weeks. The final result of the liposuction can be seen after three to six months.

Many patients find the fat pockets on their face, especially on the cheeks and chin. This can often be a blemish to an otherwise rather slim figure. Since the pockets are usually hereditary, they cannot be reduced by sport and nutrition. The only option is to perform liposuction on the affected areas. Facial liposuction is a demanding procedure, as the layer of fat is usually very thin. It is also important to take into account the anatomical features of the face. Only the superficial fat on the cheeks can be suctioned off in liposuction of the cheeks. A different procedure must be discussed for deeper lying fat. Liposuction on the chin, or the so-called double chin, is also possible. During facial liposuction, slight swelling and bruising may occur, and it is important that a compression bandage is worn for at least one to three weeks after the procedure. In addition, the facial muscles should be spared by avoiding extreme facial expressions and eating easily chewable food. In the first few days painkillers are administered and the swelling is taken care of. If stitches were also sewn during liposuction on the face, the stitches can be removed after one week. However, sport should be avoided for another one to two months….
The abdomen and hips are among the body regions that are most frequently affected by unsightly fat pockets. Liposuction of the abdomen and hips can help to permanently get rid of the fat in these areas. Diet or exercise only reduce the fat stored in the cells, but the fat cells never disappear completely. It is only possible to reduce the fat cells liposuction of the abdomen and hips. Before the procedure, the affected regions are marked. A tumescent solution is injected into the zones marked on the abdomen and hips. This special solution contains a local anaesthetic and dissolves the fat cells from the connective tissue in the abdomen and hips. A small incision of no more than one centimetre, at an inconspicuous point on the skin, makes it possible to insert the cannula with which the unwanted pockets are sucked out.

Despite a slim figure are your body parts disproportionate? This may be the case, for example, if the arms, especially the upper arms, are too strong compared to the rest of the body. It is mostly hereditary and diet and exercise show little success. This problem can be remedied by liposuction on the arms, especially the upper arms. The excess fat between skin and muscles is sucked out at the arms. The affected body regions are marked before the procedure. The tumescence solution is then injected into the problem areas on the arms. This special solution contains a local anaesthetic. The tumescence solution detaches the fat cells from the connective tissue in the arm, which causes the fat to be sucked out by means of a one to three millimeter thin cannula. The stitches necessary for the cannula are placed at hidden points on the arms so that no traces of the intervention are visible later. After liposuction, these stitches on the arms or upper arms are usually not sutured, but only glued with a plaster. The first positive results of the operation is visible immediately after the procedure, but a healing phase of a few weeks is necessary before the final result is achieved….

These accumulations of fat cannot be remedied by sports and diet. Liposuction on these areas of the body permanently removes the fat tissue and creates a slim silhouette. Before the procedure, the regions of the buttocks and legs where the excess fatty tissue is to be sucked out are marked. A tumescent solution is injected in these areas.

A small incision of no more than one centimetre, at an inconspicuous point on the skin, makes it possible to insert the cannula with which the unwanted pockets are sucked out. For liposuction on the buttocks and riding pants, the incision for the cannula is made in the area of the gluteal fold or the outside of the thigh. Small stitches are usually only stuck together with a plaster after liposuction. After the procedure, the patient must wear special compression garments that reduce swelling and support healing.

The costs for a liposuction cannot be determined in detail in advance. Each patient and each procedure must be considered individually. Aspects such as the personal initial situation, the desired result, the procedure and the extent of the liposuction are decisive for the calculation of the costs. A first personal meeting in our Sinis Clinic Berlin is therefore very important. When considering your operation, we would strongly recommend that you do not put the costs above your health. It is your body that is at stake, which is why you should pay attention to a high quality and professional treatment, even if it may be a little more expensive than supposed bargain offers.
