What liposuction/liposculpture is
A significant problem men and women have to face with their bodies is fat accumulation in specific areas (localised lipodystrophy), such as women’s love handles and men’s bellies.
This fat may be due to genetic factors (genetic fat) or it may be the result of bad nutrition and lack of regular physical exercise (metabolic fat).
Non-invasive treatments may offer improvement to a certain extent, but are unable to provide spectacular results.
Only the liposuction offers a permanent solution to the cosmetic improvement of the body. Through this procedure, excess fat is removed from specific areas.
Liposuction is not weight-loss surgery, but a procedure that sculpts the body. It is performed supplementary on patients with fat accumulation which persists, even with physical exercise and proper nutrition.
Liposuction is indicated for removing excess fat from most body parts: hips, tummy, lateral lumbar region (love handles), thighs, arms, calves and neck. It is also the most common method for treating gynecomastia.
It is a surgical procedure which should be performed by a qualified doctor for safety and a perfect cosmetic result.
With the liposculpture method, the fat that is removed may be placed in areas needed, such as the buttocks, breasts, hands, face or tissue deficits, creating a symmetrical body.
Liposculpture, also known as fat transfer or lipoplasty:
- Restores fully volume loss.
- Tones the body where needed.
- Improves the skin through the action of stem cells.
The extent of liposuction and the liposuction and liposculpture technique that will be used by Dr Georgopoulos depend greatly on your needs and desires.
How liposuction/liposculpture is performed
Liposuction is performed under general or local anaesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure, after a preoperative check-up is completed.
Initially, through 2 mm incisions, a fat-dissolving solution is injected into the area being treated (liquid liposuction / tumescent liposuction).
Dr Georgopoulos, an innovator in liposuction, offers his patients the latest techniques available worldwide. To this end, he uses ultrasound-assisted liposuction (Vaser Lipo), which eradicates fat cells through the high-frequency ultrasonic waves and liquefies fat, making it easier to remove from the body.
Specifically, this device emits special sound waves which emulsify the fat lobules, while respecting the skin and vessels. This offers multiple benefits:
- Reduced recovery time, almost half compared to conventional liposuction, and minimum bruising. The reason for this is because the connective tissue is not damaged in any way, resulting in faster recovery.
- The collagen produced, based on studies, is type 3, the best type that the body produces. This means that after surgery, the texture and look of the area are improved, preventing sagging skin.
- The harvested fat is of the highest quality, and excellent results may be achieved in the case of fat transfer to other areas of the body.
This method also provides the option of high definition liposuction (4D liposuction), which brings out the anatomy and architecture of the human body muscles (abdominal – six pack, thoracic, deltoid, dorsal, etc.).
This technique is becoming all the more popular worldwide over the last few years. The main objective is:
- Reduce localised fat.
- Restructure any part of the body.
Meanwhile, liposculpture may be performed during liposuction, which is fat transfer to shape other parts of the body, such as breasts, buttocks, face, etc.
What happens after the procedure
Most likely, you will get back to home on the same day, a few hours after the procedure, but this will depend on the extent of the process.
However, hospitalisation and an overnight may be required. Meanwhile, special pharmaceutical treatment is prescribed.
On average you may return to your daily activities right away.
You need to wear a compression garment to accelerate the healing process and minimise the oedema.
About 70% of the results are visible within the first month, while the remaining 30% within the next three.
Dr Georgopoulos and the fully trained personnel of Geoplasty Plastic Surgery will provide detailed information for the best possible results and gradual return to normal activities.
What the possible complications of liposuction/liposculpture are
Some of the possible complications are haematoma, infection, embolism, aesthetic disfigurement and asymmetries.
There is no particular pain, while the incision scars are almost invisible.
In any event, we will closely follow your postoperative progress and will expend all efforts for your speedy recovery.
What other procedures liposculpture may be combined with
Liposculpture may be combined with:
- Autologous mesotherapy with PRP to increase fat cell/stem cell viability and to improve the result.
- Breast augmentation with fat.
It also provides excellent results in the regeneration of damaged tissue caused by burns, especially following radiotherapy, because of the regenerative ability of the stem cells contained in fat (regenerative medicine).
