A Guide to Plastic Operations
The fat pads on your back can be partially dealt with thanks to exercising properly and a good diet. But what to do if it doesn’t work? There is one way that will ensure good results –liposuction. Both men and women fight with accumulated fat on their backs. Women can see how it causes the pressure sores from their bra and unattractive bulges under a t-shirt. Liposuction can model the back as efficiently as any other body part. Time to win the battle!

WHAT TO START WITH BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
A tailored procedure
When you decide on liposuction, you are heading towards modelling your figure. A pre-surgery consultation with a surgeon precedes every procedure at the Aesthevita clinic. Tell him/her what you wish to change about your body and he/she will assess your needs as a professional expert. The aim of the consultation is that you leave with a suggestion for a perfect solution to your problem. It may happen that the surgeon recommends that you suck the fat out of more body parts to achieve a better final result.
When there is too much, liposuction will help
Do you feel helpless when trying to get rid of the excess fat on your back? We were given the predispositions as to where subcutaneous fat is stored by nature. As well as the extent to which we can influence it by our lifestyle and when anything we would do comes out as inefficient. The metabolism is getting slower with age and the fat cells grow. But the liposuction will deal with them once and for all.
Right before the surgery
Before you step in to the operation room, you undergo a pre-surgery examination with blood sampling and the ECG. The clients aged over 50 undergo an x-ray of the lungs as well, for smokers the age limit is lowered to 40+.
WHAT IS HAPPENING UNDER THE HANDS OF A SURGEON
Do not be afraid of scars
The time is up, the procedure begins. The surgeon applies a special solution into the subcutaneous tissue at the very moment when the anaesthesia starts to work. Your subcutaneous fat will be dissolved better thanks to it and will be sucked out. The surgeon removes the fat using a cannula connected to the device generating suction. The diameter of cannula is only a few millimetres and the scars remaining after the procedure will be of the same diameter. Stitching the wounds with absorbable sutures and application of a sterile bandage come at the end of the surgery.
Which type of anaesthesia will you choose?
The liposuction is performed under both local and general anaesthesia. The second option is more comfortable for the patients, there is no pain at all. Did you choose local anaesthesia anyway? Then take into account that you will have to cope with the pressure of the cannula through which the surgeon sucks the fat out.
How much fat does the surgeon suck out?
During the liposuction, the fat leaves the body together with blood. The surgeon is therefore allowed to remove only a certain maximum amount of fat. It is possible to suck out 4-5 % of the client’s weight at maximum. Nevertheless, it is still true that the surgeon can suck out no more than 5 litres of fat during one surgery regardless the weight of the patient.
THE WAYS IN WHICH I CAN SUPPORT RECOVERY
Allow yourself to relax
In the days right after the surgery, your body will automatically signal to you that it needs to rest. Do not do anything demanding for approximately a week. Simply relax. The bruises and swelling will disappear within three weeks. Approximately six weeks is enough to recover and start doing sports again and handle your usual physical activities. Massage the treated area during your recovery. It significantly promotes the proper healing of the scarred subcutaneous tissue.
Six weeks in the compression garment
Do not take off the compression garment in which you leave the clinic for the next 6 weeks (except for a shower), it prevents creating more bruises and facilitates healing.
Tip: We recommend wearing and changing at least two compression garments in order for the wounds to be constantly in a clean environment. You can wash the clothes on a daily basis shortly after the surgery.
Swelling gradually disappears
All good things come to those who wait. Repeat this to yourself when you are standing in front of the mirror and waiting for the final shape of your figure to be revealed. The treated body parts may be finding their final shape even for several months. The curves you’re excited about seeing will come soon. Although they will not be visible right after the last bruise disappears.
HOW IT WILL CHANGE MY LIFE
Think about your bad habits
We are born with certain number of fat cells. They behave according to our genetic predisposition and the care we provide to our body. Liposuction can get rid of the fat cells but it is not omnipotent. Promise yourself before the procedure to finish with your old dietary sins and to keep the modelled figure.
A sedentary occupation and little time and energy for sports do not only contribute to the growth of fat cells but they are not good for our whole organism. The fat is not stored in the treated body parts after the liposuction. It is gone from there forever. However, the body cannot be fooled so easily. It will find other areas to store fat; therefore, a change in lifestyle is recommended for the long-term effect of the liposuction.
The price of the procedure is final, everything necessary is already calculated. It specifically includes the following:
- A consultation with the plastic surgeon
- Compressive postoperative halter garment
- The procedure itself
- A stay at the clinic after the surgery
- A package with postoperative care
