The areas to be treated are drawn on the skin and photo-documented immediately before the procedure. According to the markings, small puncture incisions (cuts) are made and the subcutaneous (subcutaneous) fatty tissue is infiltrated with a water jet through an infiltration cannula with a special solution and loosened up.
The solution also causes the smaller vessels to contract, reducing blood loss as much as possible. Due to the balanced salt composition, your body is not deprived of any liquid by the solution. For the most part, the applied solution is gently suctioned off after the appropriate exposure time, together with the loosened fat cells, and thus puts as little strain on your circulation as possible. The suction takes place with liposuction cannulas of different calibers. The selection is made individually according to the findings. We pay meticulous attention to protecting the neighboring anatomical structures, especially the blood and lymphatic vessels.
It is important to have an axially correct (parallel to the blood and lymphatic system), lymph-sparing liposuction in order to prevent or prevent the development of secondary lymphedema. A residual layer of subcutaneous fat corresponding to the anatomical contours of the body is left to maintain a necessary lubricating layer between the skin and muscles.
After the operation, the small wounds are closed with sterile adhesive plasters. Additional protective plasters are attached over this. The compression garment is put on in the operating room so that the initial swelling is limited.
