Liposuction, liposculpture or liposuction refines some areas of the body, such as the stomach, flanks, thighs, upper arms, legs, neck and chin. The term liposculpture is preferred, because thanks to precise and efficient techniques, a new body shape can be achieved by sculpting the silhouette.
Unwanted excess fat that does not respond to diet and exercise can be removed by liposuction in many areas of the body.
It is important that you have clear and realistic expectations regarding the desired result.
A healthy lifestyle, a healthy diet, and quitting smoking at least one month before the procedure will contribute to a smooth procedure and recovery.
Depending on the location and size of the fat to be removed and your personal needs, local or general anesthesia may be required. Through punctured incisions, cannulas will be used to suck out the fat in the desired areas.
Although activities can be restored very quickly after surgery, it is recommended you wear a special elastic garment for up to 6 weeks after surgery to help the skin retract and adapt to the new body contour.
Results are long-lasting and the operation leaves no visible scars. The reshaping of the figure, the drainage of excess fluid and the retraction of the skin can take up to several months to be visible and stable.
The elasticity of the skin will not improve after liposuction. There is no way to guarantee the procedure will completely meet your goals if excess skin is present. In some cases, several procedures may be indicated and the combination with several techniques (see Renuvion®) may increase your chances of obtaining a more satisfactory result.
The combination of the Renuvion® technique (laser with plasma technology) with liposuction can obtain a contraction/shrinkage of 30-40% of the skin after liposuction.
At Global Plastic Surgery, we were the first to adapt this technique, which improves the skin's quality and elasticity in a sustainable way, thus obtaining more satisfactory results.
Many heavy operations such as abdominoplasty or arm or thigh lifts are now obsolete thanks to the Renuvion® plasma technique, which achieves the same results with almost no scarring.
The application of the Renuvion® plasma laser at Global Plastic Surgery achieves the same results that were previously obtainable only with long scars, thanks to the skin retraction induced by this technology.
During your appointment, the doctor will explain all the possible risks and complications associated with this procedure, even though they are rare. It is only after talking with the doctor that you will have all the elements to make your decision.
What is the price of this type of surgery?
The price of the operation depends mainly on the areas to be treated, the time of the operation, the technique used and the choice of anesthesia. The price for a liposuction operation starts at 4000 CHF.
