Liposuction, body sculpting or suction-assisted lipectomy has become one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed today. Liposuction is a permanent removal of fat using a suction technique. It is a contouring procedure that is used to reshape specific areas of the body.

Nearly every part of the body has been successfully treated with liposuction. For women, the most common areas treated are thighs (saddle-bags), hips, stomach and neck (often instead of a facelift, particularly in younger patients). For men, the most problematic areas are waist ("love handles"), stomach, chest (including male breasts or "gynecomastia") and neck. Liposuction is frequently combined with other operations, such as facelifts, breast reductions, tummy tucks, and a variety of reconstructive procedures in order to maximize their effect.

Liposuction removes fat cells permanently and they don't reoccur. Using one or more small, hidden incisions, a cannula (a hollow tube) is inserted under the skin. Patients who also have depressions in their bodies can benefit from liposculpture. Fat can be injected in the face to smoothen folds and wrinkles and in the body to improve the contours of areas such as buttocks, thighs and legs. The compressive garment is worn continuously for 3 weeks after the surgery to limit swelling and ensure proper skin contraction.

The Tumescent Liposuction technique requires only a local anesthetic and adrenaline, NO GENERAL ANESTHESIA is required. The tumescent technique greatly reduces tissue trauma and bleeding from liposuction in addition to eliminating the risks associated with general anesthesia.

LENGTH OF PROCEDURE: 1-2 hours. The patients are wrapped into compressive garments after the surgery. 
ANESTHESIA: Local, with sedation. Tumescent anesthesia makes the procedure safer.
SCARS: Small puncture cosmetic scars.
RECOVERY: Back to work 1-2 days. Showering is allowed 24 hours after the procedure.
RESULTS: Very dramatic changes: the recontouring is permanent.

Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in Croatia today.
