Care Geneva Liposuction – Lipo Sculpture in Geneva

Liposuction makes it possible to drastically and permanently eliminate excess localised fat that generally does not go away despite a healthy diet and physical exercise.

Provided that these fat cells are unable to regenerate, there will not be a recurrence of this excess fat.

In most cases, liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis under local anaesthesia, but depending on the situation and the importance of the areas being treated, it may be performed under general anaesthesia with hospitalisation.

Liposuction may be used in many areas of the body: “saddlebags”, hips, abdomen, thighs, knees, calves, ankles, arms, face and neck (double chin, egg-shaped face). In liposuction, blunt cannulae, perforated at the end and connected to a closed circuit that will create negative pressure, are placed beneath the skin through 4 mm incisions. It is thereby possible to evenly suction excessive fat cells in a non-traumatic manner. Following the operation, bruising and swelling may appear around the treated areas. Pain is variable and in most cases it can be controlled by traditional analgesics. Patients are advised to wear an elastic support girdle for 2 to 4 weeks. The patient may resume normal activity 4 to 7 days after the surgery, depending on the amount of liposuction and their type of professional activity. Sports may be played 3 weeks after the surgery.

Cellulite:

Cellulite is the irregular and unsightly appearance of skin caused by a thinning dermis (deep layer of skin) that appears with age and increased fat deposits. Fibrous spans between fat lobules connect to the skin and, with an increase in fat deposits; these spans become stretched, causing the irregular aspect of dimples and bumps on the skin. The thinning of the dermis aggravates this effect. These fibrous bands are especially present in the buttocks and thighs. Treatment of cellulite is difficult. Liposuction reduces the fat deposits, but it does not improve the thinning dermis. Lymph drainage and, in serious cases with excess skin, a buttock and thigh lift can improve this problem. These treatments must be combined with a healthy diet and regular physical exercise. Other treatments like vacuomobilization and mesotherapy are available and must still demonstrate their long-term effectiveness.
