Liposuction

Get your liposuction abroad - a popular way to deal with undesirable fat in almost all areas of the body.

When is liposuction a suitable solution?

  • You want to deal with problematic areas of the figure, that are difficult to exercise.
  • You want to look slimmer, when all diet attempts have failed.

What is a liposuction?

Some people suffer from excess fat reserves in certain parts of the body, such as sides, thighs, abdomen or buttocks. These undesired fat areas can be removed using any of the liposuction techniques.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure in the area of aesthetic plastic surgery, during which a surgeon aspirates the fat tissue, accumulated in certain typical localities, which differ in women and men. The fat usually accumulates in the area of hips, thighs, knees and sides. In men, the fat usually accumulates in the double chin, sides and abdomen.Even slim women and men may have larger quantities of fat in certain body areas, from which it cannot be removed by exercise or diet. In such cases, liposuction is fully justifiable.

Liposuction is a procedure during which localized fat reserves are removed in order to sculpture one or more parts of the body. It improves the body contours and shape by disintegration and removal of subcutaneous fat through a metal cannula, which is connected by a tube to the suction device generating vacuum pressure to aspirate the fat from the desired areas.

The suction cannula is inserted into the body via short, maximally several centimetre long incisions, which are usually placed into natural skin folds by the surgeon, so that they are minimally visible after the healing. This method of liposuction can be used primarily for modelling of the abdomen, sides, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper parts of the arms, chin, face and neck. 

Prior to the procedure, it is crucial to ensure bleeding prevention – any drugs known to increase the bleeding rate and reduce blood coagulation must be discontinued prior to the procedure. A special caution should be taken in patients with a disease of the lower extremities (lymphatic and venous system, such as varicose veins, and/or swelling).

Liposuction is usually performed under general or epidural anaesthesia. Smaller areas, such as the double chin or knees, can be operated on under local anaesthesia or in combination with conscious sedation.

At the beginning of the procedure, the area to be operated should be filled with a special solution. Normal saline with adrenaline is used during operations under general anaesthesia. For other types of anaesthesia, a tumescent solution should be used that contains a saline, anaesthetic, adrenaline, which causes blood vessel narrowing, and bicarbonate, which reduces pain during the application of the solution into the area to be operated.

Laser liposuction is used either alone or (as performed at Asklepion) as a combination of traditional tumescent liposuction and laser skin tightening. First, the surgeon will fill the tissue with a special solution, which is aspirated together with fat cells using a cannula, and thereafter laser treatment is applied. A laser fibre is inserted in the subcutaneous tissue and the tissue is heavily heated from underneath – due to this procedure, collagen and fibrous structures in the skin tighten and the skin smoothes out and adheres again to the tissue.

Laser liposuction has several advantages compared to the traditional approach - no need to wear a long-term bandage, which is used in normally used to shape the skin properly. The laser will coagulate all damaged blood vessels in the subcutaneous area, which prevents the large bruises typically seen after traditional liposuction. Laser produces better contours in the treated areas than aspiration of fat alone, and moreover the laser minimizes the risk of uneven skin. The healing in also less painfull.

BodyTite (radiofrequency) liposuction is usually used in combination with traditional liposuction. This is a brilliant treatment for smoothing out the body contours, removing fat and also tightening the skin, because the risk of loose skin is the biggest disadvantage after liposuction, when the skin does not have enough elasticity. The treatment with RF system BodyTite minimizes this risk, fastens the healing, makes the liposuction more effective and renews the collagen – returns the tightness and elasticity. In most cases it has replaced the laser liposuction. 

How can I get a liposuction abroad?

Contact our clinic for a consultation concerning your medical records and expectations of the procedure´s outcome. Mrs. Jana Hrnčířová, our Manager for International Clients, will be happy to provide you with all the information you´re interested in and help you to arrange your stay at Prague and the clinic.

In case that the liposuction is carried out under general anaesthesia, you have to attend a preoperative examination. That is possible at our clinic, but also at your local physician. You can then present the results before the operation itself; they should not be older than 3 weeks.

After the procedure

The need for further hospitalization depends on the type of anaesthesia. In all cases, it is very important to wear an elastic compression garment after the liposuction, day and night, at least for 4 to 6 weeks. This can influence the final effect considerably.

We offer you competent doctors and friendly and professional staff with language skills. We guide you through the surgery itself and the post-operative care.
