Liposuction abdomen, waist, back
Info liposuction abdomen, waist, back
Liposuction is the internationally most common cosmetic surgery on both men and women.
The reasons for liposuction varies, but the most common is the desire to get rid of local fat accumulation that makes you feel that a part of the body is disproportionate compared to the rest of the body. Common sites of localized fat accumulation is the abdomen, thighs, hips or the inside of your knees. These localized fat accumulations depends primarily on heredity but also diet and exercise play a role.
A liposuction improves the body shape and in principle it is possible to treat almost all the superficial parts of the body that have excess fat, from the face down to the calves. The result of a liposuction is permanent, provided that after the surgery the patient takes care of diet and exercise.
When performing a liposuction large amounts of saline solution mixed with local anesthetic is first injected into the fatty tissue, after which the liquid and fat tissue is sucked out using needles. The fluid is injected to make it possible to better shape the treated areas without getting irregularities, and to reduce bleeding and swelling after the procedure. At Victoriakliniken, we always use thin needles which requires a little more work and time during the procedure itself, but makes for the best and most uniform end result.
The operation is performed under general anesthesia, which means you are asleep and pain-free during the entire procedure. If only a small part of the body fat is removed, you can go home later the same day. After a major liposuction however, you will stay one or two nights at the clinic.
After surgery, you can expect some swelling and soreness. This is at its worst the second to third day and then declines gradually. To speed healing and reduce swelling we recommend so-called Endermologie, lymphatic drainage therapy, two treatments before and four treatments after surgery.
After a liposuction of abdomen, waist, back, you get to wear a girdle day and night for three weeks and then at night for another three weeks. For minor liposuctions bike pants or tight stockings may be enough.
You also get painkillers to take home and after about ten days we’ll see you on a return visit for inspection and removal of stitches. The scars are short, often only a few millimeters, and barely visible.
Not a weight-loss method!
We would like to emphasize that liposuction is not an alternative to loose weight in other ways!
Liposuction works great for sculpting the body in areas that are perceived as asymmetrical or unbalanced. A person with a normal weight, good diet and regular exercise, may still have fat deposits around the hips that are not influenced by a healthy lifestyle. While the rest of the body is shaped by exercise and diet, these areas can instead become increasingly visible in contrast to the rest of the body.
That’s when liposuction can be an alternative, to reduce these deposits to create a more symmetrical whole.

Dokuments about liposuction
Here you can read and download more detailed information about liposuction, in pdf-format (in Swedish).
We recommend our patients to do endermology before an abdominoplasty or liposuction, to enhance blood circulation in the fatty areas, and to speed-up recovery. After surgery this treatment can help drain fluid, and lessen swelling and pain.
