The principle of this kind of treatment consists in removal of subcutaneous fat by connecting the vibration cannula with a standard diameter of 3 to 5 millimetres to a vacuum generating device.
Subcutaneous fat is suctioned from tiny incisions by repeated entries of the cannula into the tissues creating miniscule tunnels where fat is removed. During this treatment by experienced Esthé surgeons, a dense net of these tunnels is built, which results in achieving a large and even reduction of subcutaneous fat layer.
A significant advantage of this treatment, similarly to other surgical methods of liposuction, is a permanent effect of the procedure. In an adult, the number of fat cells is stable, cells do not multiply, only their size can change. That is why a reduction of their number using power-assisted liposuction brings a permanent effect to the particular part of the body.
No special preparation is required before this type of treatment. Merely some basic general rules should be observed, such as cessation of use of medications influencing blood clotting three weeks before the intervention. From midnight before the surgery, the patient should not eat, drink and smoke.
However, the intervention requires a good health condition. When an inflammatory skin disease, acne proliferation, eczema, skin fungus or an overall unfavourable condition occurs, postponing the treatment is no problem.
Power-assisted liposuction can be performed under both general and local anaesthesia. Abdominal wall liposuction usually takes 1.5 hours, liposuction of hips or outer thighs approximately 1 hour.
