Liposuction

Fat removal with liposuction

At Essential Aesthetics, we specialise in liposuction, fat aspiration, and dermolipectomy, fat cutting. In addition to liposuction, there is now LipoSculpting, an even more sophisticated liposuction technique. If you are considering liposuction, read on!

Sometimes, try as we do (when we manage to find energy and time), physical training does not bring the result we had hoped for. Liposuction can then be an option. Please note however that liposuction is not a means of losing weight, but it can help you get rid of local excess fat, such as abdominal fat.

Many women suffer from a stacking of fat around the hips, thighs, abdomen and upper arms. This is particularly true after pregnancy due to the influence of hormones, or also in menopause. For men, the stacking is mostly around the abdomen, stomach and neck area. But also on the knees, in the face, around the ankles, back and buttocks, and this accumulation of fat can be difficult to train away. Liposuction can then be the ideal solution. Sometimes fat also has to be cut away to achieve the best result (dermolipectomy), as is often done when treating cellulite.


What happens with liposuction

When considering liposuction, the doctor will first discuss the different possibilities with you. No two bodies are the same and not all our wishes are actually achievable. Once our specialist has explained the options and you choose a treatment, we will schedule an appointment as soon as possible. 

Immediately before the procedure, the doctor marks the places on your body where fat will be removed. The procedure almost always takes place under general anesthesia. The excess fat is removed via thin incisions with a narrow cannula (tube). The incisions are then sutured or connected. 

The final result is visible after three to four months and you can influence this result by following the aftercare properly. 

How long the operation takes depends on the amount of fat removed. When several treatments are carried out at the same time, it might take longer. The cost of the operation is related to the length of the operation. The surgeon can often indicate how long the operation will take, in advance. 

Are you looking for a more refined result? You will achieve this with Liposculpture. Essential Aesthetics is one of the few clinics in the Netherlands that offers this special technique, which lifts liposuction to a higher level. We have a plastic surgeon in our team, specialized in Liposculpting, who trained in South America. He has a fantastic eye for detail and uses this method to create even more beautiful shapes and contours.

Liposuction result

The end result depends on a number of factors, in which you yourself play an important role.

Liposuction, as mentioned before, is not a means to lose a lot of weight. The amount of fat that can be removed is limited, hence it is not a treatment for obesity. The surgeon will decide together with you how much fat can be removed, knowing that for your own safety, it never exceeds 2.25 kilos.

The result of abdominal liposuction is fully visible after 6 to 9 months. Your body contours will then be permanent, provided you maintain your weight. Sometimes the body contours are not completely symmetrical. Don't worry, no body is completely symmetrical and in most cases subtle asymmetry is not noticeable at all. If there are excessive inequalities, a second operation may be necessary to achieve the desired result.

The better you take care of your body, the longer the result will last. Your health, future pregnancies and weight fluctuations will of course also have an effect on the duration of the result.

Recovery after liposuction

How quickly you recover depends on the treated area. In some cases, when suturing the wound, a drain is inserted to remove the wound fluid and blood. This drain can remain in place for several days, depending on the treated area. The length of your hospital stay depends on the duration of the procedure and whether you have been treated under general or local anesthesia. Our care team will give you an estimate in advance and of course, the surgeon will explain the recovery period to you.

After the operation you will most probably suffer from bruising, swelling and a general feeling of pain for a number of weeks. If you have had a minor operation, paracetamol is usually enough to cope. If this isn't enough, the surgeon can prescribe you heavier pain medication. 

You will also temporarily have to wear an elastic corset. This reduces and prevents swelling, keeps the skin in place and gives the treated area the rest it needs to recover successfully. You can make an appointment immediately after the operation to have the stitches removed. Depending on the operation, we recommend that you avoid bending or lifting much for the first 6 to 12 weeks. You can start work again after about a week, depending on the type of work you do. Always consult with your doctor first. 

Safety through precautionary measures

Once you have decided on liposuction, we will provide you with a patient information document. Please read it carefully. The doctor will provide you, in addition to the general advice, with instructions that are specific to you based on your health and living conditions. The general advice is summarized below.

Before the surgery:

  • Stop smoking four weeks before surgery and do not start again for at least 2 weeks afterwards. Smoking slows wound healing and increases the risk of infection.
  • Start taking Arnica drops two weeks before the operation and continue till two weeks after the operation. This reduces bruising and swelling.
  • Should you be taking Marcoumar, Sintrom/Sintrommitis, Asprocardio or similar medication, discuss with your surgeon whether you can temporarily stop using them. This also applies to Aspirin and painkillers with aspirin such as Advil, Diclofenac, etc. During the period around the operation, you can use painkillers such as Paracetamol and Panadol.
  • Do not take blood thinning medication before surgery.
  • Do not forget to arrange your transport home. You can not drive yourself after the operation and it is forbidden.
  • Ensure you are not alone for the first few nights after the operation and that someone is available to help you in your home for the first few days. 
  • Don't forget to give us your measurements and details for the compression garment. We recommend that you buy two pieces of clothing, this is for your own comfort and hygiene. 

The day of the operation:

  • Remove all jewelry, watches and piercings. The clinic is not liable for loss and / or theft.
  • Do not eat or drink anything for the 8 hours before the operation.
  • Let your "driver" know at what time you can be picked up. The doctor will give you an estimate. You will remain in general at the hospital for a few hours after the operation and in some cases it is advisable to stay the night. 

After the surgery:

    • After the procedure you will be given a piece of clothing that will ensure that the correct pressure is applied to your body so that swelling is reduced and your body remains in the correct shape. Wear your compression garment for as long as the doctor advises. This is on average six weeks. 
    • Liposuction is in most cases is a day treatment. Your helper can take you home a few hours after the operation. 
    • Keep in mind that you will not be able to work in the first week after the operation. If you have physically strenuous work, it may be longer before you can resume work. Always consult your doctor first. 
    • Keep moving! Movement helps to reduce swelling and stimulates blood circulation. 
    • Sports however are not recommended for the first 6 weeks after surgery.

Risks and complications

There are risks associated with every operation. Although scarce, it is important to consider the following complications:

  • Poor wound healing.
  • (Temporary) Swelling or hardening of the skin.
  • Asymmetry of the abdomen.
  • (Temporary) numbness of the skin.

Liposuction abdomen

One of the most popular liposuction procedures is abdominal liposuction.
When you undergo abdominal liposuction, the surgeon first marks the area on your abdomen that needs to be corrected.

During the operation, incisions are made in inconspicuous places on your abdomen where a fluid is injected which causes the fat to loosen from the skin. The doctor then sucks the fat away, using a small hollow needle. Once the surgeon is satisfied with the result, he sutures the small incisions. The procedure takes an average of 1 to 2.5 hours.

Dermolipectomy [add link] can also be applied to make your stomach even more beautiful. You can get an even more refined result with Liposculpture. Essential Aesthetics is one of the few clinics in the Netherlands that offers this special technique.

You can find more information on the safety of this procedure and the possible risks and complications, in the section: Risks and complications.

Dermolipectomy abdomen

In a dermolipectomy, fat is removed in a different way than in liposuction. In a dermolipectomy, the fat is not sucked away but subcutaneous fat tissue is cut away. The incisions made here are larger than in a liposuction treatment, which leaves larger scars. The surgeon always tries of course to make the incisions in inconspicuous places and sutures the wounds with soluble sutures. This procedure is often combined with liposuction.

Both Dermolipectomy and abdominal liposuction take place under general anesthesia. The length of the operation depends on the amount of fat removed. When several treatments are performed at the same time, it may take longer. The cost of the operation is determined by the length of the operation. The surgeon can often indicate in advance how long the operation will be.

Liposuction buttocks

This procedure is similar to abdominal liposuction. The same general information applies as abdominal liposuction. The procedure takes round 1 to 2.5 hours and takes place under general anesthesia.
