The most common cause for Liposuction abroad in Prague are increased amounts of fat deposits, which present a discomforting deviation. The fat lay-out is different in men and in women, and it is one of the secondary sex indicia. Among the localities with more prominent fat deposits, there are:
- the buttocks
- the outer and the inner thighs
- the inner side of the knee
- the abdomen
- the double chin
By Liposuction (i.e. the suction of the fat), we are able to remove the excessive fat from these areas. We are using tumescent liposuction, where we apply a special solution into the subcutis which releases the fat cells and the fat is then drained off by means of a cannula connected to a compression vacuum pump.
We can drain off as much as several litres of fat during one Liposuction operation in Prague. Liposuction surgery is not a method for resolving excessive overweight; we only remove fat from the areas of body which cannot be influenced by a reduction diet or physical exercise. Therefore a reduction in weight is advantageous prior to the Liposuction cosmetic surgery.
Fat in smaller localities can be sucked by Small Liposuction cosmetic surgery under local anaesthesia, as an outpatient operation; larger localities are treated under general anaesthesia, requiring 1-2 days of hospitalisation at the plastic surgery clinic in Prague.
- Duration of liposuction: Depends on number of areas and amount of sucked fat from 20 min up to 2 hours.
- Areas for liposuction - large volume (General Anaesthesia): Typical areas covered by Liposuction - large volume under General Anaesthesia are Abdomen + Hips, Inner and Outer Thighs.
- Results of liposuction: Permanent effect, however, it can be damaged by weight gain.
- Hospital stay for liposuction: 2 nights hospitalisation at the cosmetic clinic for large liposuction in Prague.
- Anaesthesia for Liposuction: General anaesthesia for medium and large liposuction in Prague.
Recovery after Liposuction abroad in Prague, Czech Republic:
After the Liposuction cosmetic surgery in Prague, the patient wears compression clothes on the body parts subjected to the liposuction surgery. The compression clothes are worn constantly for 4 weeks.
On the 3rd day after the Liposuction cosmetic surgery, the patient may take off the clothes, remove the patches from the cuts where the cannula was inserted and it is possible to take a shower. The cuts sealed by a stitch are then again covered by a patch and the compression clothes are put on again.
From the 3rd day after the Liposuction surgery, the patient can take showers every day, the clothes can be washed and, while drying, it is recommended that the patient lies down, with no walking (however, the patient should not be without the compression clothes for more than 2 hours).
The plastic surgeon removes the stitches from the cuts where the cannula was inserted 14 days after the Liposuction cosmetic surgery. The Liposuction patients can remove the stitches themselves in the event that they cannot come for the re-bandaging.
Office work is possible as early as 3-4 days after the Liposuction cosmetic surgery, though while wearing the compression clothes.
Physical exercise may begin 3 weeks after the cosmetic surgery.
With small liposuctions, carried out under local anaesthesia, office work is possible as early as two days after the cosmetic operation.
