True beauty lies in the beholder’s eyes
Liposuction is a procedure which removes part of the subcutaneous adipose tissue, using blunt cannulae of varying diameters, depending on the quantity and depth of the tissue to be removed. It is not a weightloss treatment but a surgical procedure that remodels the body profile, and can or must be carried out after any necessary weightloss has aready been achieved. It can be carried out on many body areas – abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, ankles, under the chin etc. Under local anaesthetic, or local anaesthetic with medical sedation, or general anaesthetic, a liquid composed of saline solution, local anaesthetic and adrenaline is injected into the area to be treated. This facilitates suction of the adipose tissue and reduces bleeding. Incisions, a few millimetres long, are made in hidden areas or body folds; cannulae of varying diameters, connected to a suction pump, are inserted into the subcutaneous fat. The cannulae are moved back and forth at different depths in order to remove the excess fat uniformly and evenly. Liposuction may be combined with radiofrequency treatments to increase elasticity and improve the tone of the skin at the same time.
