With the help of liposuction, we can effectively correct your body shape and specifically treat your problem.
We also talk about body styling or body contouring.
The areas of application for liposuction in women are: Abdomen, thighs (riding breeches), buttocks and hips. For men, it is increasingly the chin and chest.

How liposuction works
Liposuction is performed with extremely thin cannulas that are pushed under the skin through tiny incisions (about 4 mm in size).
These small incisions are dressed with staple plasters after the procedure so that any remaining anaesthetic solution can escape, but the wound edges can heal together quickly. The small scars are hardly visible after a few months.
Alternative to liposuction:
Liposuction is usually performed on specific areas of the body where fat deposits are particularly stubborn and cannot be reduced by diet and exercise.
The most commonly treated areas of the body are:
- Thigh (inner and outer)
- Double chin
- Lower legs
It should be noted, however, that liposuction should not be used as a weight loss method and that it is an invasive and high-risk operation that should only be performed by qualified doctors. It is important to have realistic expectations and to consult thoroughly with the doctor before the operation.
Frequently asked questions about liposuction
No, of particular importance is that the treatment with us is performed under local anaesthesia. Therefore, a general anaesthetic with all its advantages and disadvantages is not necessary.
Because of the local anaesthetic, we do not normally need to administer any anaesthetic or painkillers. For patients who are very anxious or still feel residual pain, an anaesthetist is always available.
In addition to the cosmetic risk, liposuction involves the usual risks of any operation, such as thrombosis, embolism, infections, bleeding, vascular and nerve damage as well as a possible allergy to the anaesthetic. Thanks to the much gentler suction technique, all of these risks rarely occur, but they cannot be completely ruled out.
Immediately after the procedure, bruising may occur, which, like all bruises, will completely disappear within a few weeks. The healing process in the liposuctioned area with skin regression takes 4 to 6 months, by which time at the latest the liposuctioned area can only be recognised by the "slimming effect" achieved.
Common treatment areas for liposuction are the abdomen, buttocks, hips or thighs (e.g. riding breeches). The chin (often colloquially referred to as a double chin) or the chest (in men) can also be treated in this way.
If you can manage it, one to two days of physical rest will do you good, especially as more frequent dressing changes are required in the first two days due to the anaesthetic fluid still escaping. You should only start doing sports again after a one-week rest period. You should avoid the sauna for four weeks, as the heat can promote swelling.
The skin by nature has a high ability to regress. After liposuction, it usually recedes by itself due to the scar in the subcutaneous tissue caused by the wound healing.
No, the aim of liposuction is not weight reduction, but harmonisation and proportioning of the body contour. The fat deposits that remain after a general weight reduction through dieting are specifically removed.
Whereas diets aim at general weight reduction, liposuction, on the other hand, does not lead to weight loss, but removes precisely those disturbing fat deposits that stubbornly resist diets and exercise.
No, fat cells basically do not grow back or form anew.
Deep massage using a vacuum device and special skin care products can achieve rapid tightening and smoothing of the skin after liposuction and optimise the result.
Serious statements about the costs of liposuction can only be made after a personal consultation and examination of the area to be treated.
