WHAT TO START WITH BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
A tailored procedure
By choosing liposuction, you're getting closer to improving your figure. Each procedure is preceded by a preoperative consultation with a plastic surgeon at the Aesthevita clinic. Tell the doctor what you would like to change, and he will take a look at your wishes with the eye of an experienced professional. The goal of the consultation is for you to leave with a proposal for the ideal solution to your problem. Sometimes the surgeon may recommend the removal of fat from two or three areas at once for a better result.
An effective weapon against fat cells
You're not the only one who feels helpless in the effort to get rid of excess fat on the back. Tested methods do not always work - every body is unique and reacts differently. Our genes determine where our subcutaneous fat is stored, as well as how and to what extent we can eliminate it with our lifestyle and when we need to seek help elsewhere. In older age, the metabolism becomes less and less collaborative and the fat cells grow. However, liposuction will quickly and easily get rid of them once and for all.
Right before the surgery
Before you enter the operating room, you will undergo a preoperative blood and ECG test. Patients over the age of 60 will also undergo a lung X-ray; for smokers the age limit is 50+.
WHAT IS HAPPENING UNDER THE HANDS OF A SURGEON
Do not be afraid of scars
During the VASER Lipo ultrasonic liposuction, the fat is extracted with very thin cannulas that leave no noticeable bruising. The ultrasonic probe mechanically breaks up the fat cells, which crack under the influence of the waves, making it easier to remove them with the cannula. The VASER Lipo device minimizes postoperative hematoma and bruising. The quality of VASER Lipo is attested to by its approval by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). After the procedure, the wounds are closed with absorbable sutures and sterile bandages are applied.
Which type of anaesthesia will you choose?
The liposuction is performed under both local and general anesthesia. The second option is more comfortable for the patients - it doesn't hurt a bit, which is especially appreciated by men. Did you choose local anesthesia? Then you must expect to have to bear the pressure of the cannula used by the surgeon to extract the fat, and it may hurt a bit here and there.
How much fat does the surgeon suck out?
Blood leaves the body along with the fat. The surgeon can therefore only remove a specific maximum amount. During one liposuction, a maximum of 4-5% of a patient's body weight can be extracted. Another rule is that regardless of the patient's weight, the surgeon will never extract more than 5 liters of fat in one procedure.
THE WAYS IN WHICH I CAN SUPPORT RECOVERY
Allow yourself to relax
Tumescent liposuction combined with an ultrasound is less demanding for patients, and the recovery process is faster than after conventional liposuction. Nevertheless, it is necessary to rest shortly after the procedure, and minor bruising may occur. After a week of resting, you can slowly return to your normal activities. You will be able to handle sports and exercise about 4-6weeks after the procedure.
Six weeks in the compression garment
The compression underwear in which you leave the clinic should only be removed to take a shower in the six weeks following the surgery. It prevents further bruising and facilitates healing.
Swelling disappears gradually
Be patient when you look in the mirror. It takes a while for the treated areas to take their final form. It may take a couple additional weeks after your recovery for the swelling to go down. You may not have the figure you wanted immediately after the last bruise disappears.
HOW IT WILL CHANGE MY LIFE
Think about your bad habits
We are born with a certain amount of fat cells. Our fat cells behave according to our genetic predispositions, as well as according to how we take care of our bodies. Although liposuction can rid the body of a part of the fat cells, it is not omnipotent. Promise yourself before the procedure that you will end the bad habits in your lifestyle and work to maintain your newly shaped figure.
A sedentary job and minimum time and energy for exercise contributes to the "swelling" of fat cells and is detrimental to our whole body. After the liposuction, your body will no longer store fat on the treated areas. It will never come back. However, it's not that easy to trick your body. It will find other places to store the fat, so it is advisable to support the long-term effect of the liposuction by changing your lifestyle.
