Liposuction for a flat abdomen
For many people the abdomen is problem area number one. Despite daily sit-ups and diets the abdominal fat is often resistant – in men and women alike. If no effort will help to fulfil the dream of a flatter abdomen, liposuction may be the appropriate solution to get rid of the unloved “spare tyres”.
Liposuction on other parts of the body
Women in particular often struggle with fat deposits on the hips, buttocks and thighs. Some women suffer from fat on the inside of the knees. Especially for women with an otherwise slim body this can be burdensome.
Liposuction can help to shape a balanced silhouette and to tighten hips, buttocks, thighs and knees. If you are considering liposuction for the back, calves, ankles, upper arms or neck, our specialists in surgery will be pleased to counsel you.
Reasons for liposuction
Fat deposits, which lead many of our patients to our clinic, are rarely caused by overeating. In many cases genetic disposition, pregnancy, or weakness of the connective tissue are the reasons for the uneven distribution of fat in the body. Sometimes even a lipoedema is responsible: an inherent disorder of fat distribution, which usually affects arms or legs, appearing as symmetrical fat deposits, swelling of the arms or legs during the day, pressure sensitivity and bruises even after slight collisions.
Liposuction by Plastic Surgeons
Liposuction is one of the most sought-after cosmetic surgeries. However, even plastic surgery has its limitations: Liposuction is useful if you are a slim type and just have one or two persistent problem areas.
If you are seriously overweight, liposuction is not the right method to reduce body girth. For men, who usually desire liposuction of the abdomen, it has to be diagnosed whether the abdominal fat is located above or below the muscle. Liposuction will not work for volume reduction if the fat is located beneath the abdominal muscles.
Our specialists in surgery and plastic surgery will ascertain whether liposuction is the appropriate method to treat your fat deposits.
