Before the operation, patients should observe certain rules. Three weeks before the intervention, it is not suitable to use medications influencing blood clotting. From midnight before, it is recommended not to eat, drink and smoke The operation must be postponed if an inflammatory skin disease, acne, eczema, skin fungus or an overall unfavourable condition occurs.
The procedure itself is not too complicated. The area from which fat is to be removed is injected with a solution that expands in space. The cells are broken down by ultrasound waves. Ultrasonic liposuction is gentle to human body, as ultrasound only disrupts fat cells – other subcutaneous structures remain undamaged.
This is one of the reasons why ultrasonic liposuction is so popular. People usually have fat suctioned from problematic areas. These most frequently include chin and double chin, arms, armpits (when treating excessive sweating), torso, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, knees, calves, ankles. The treatment achieves good results also with a slightly slackened skin. The duration of the procedure depends on the size of the treated locality and volume of the suctioned fat. Liposuction is usually performed under general anaesthesia.
