||On the day before the operation, a personal consultation,
explanation of the medical and a check-up take place.
In addition, a blood sample is taken to determine the blood count
(a hemogram). If the patient is over 40, a more in-depth hemogram
is required, as well as a cardiogram (ECG). If necessary these
laboratory tests can be carried out at our clinic in Prague.
|| For a volume of fat of up to 1000 ml, the operation
is possible under local anesthetic. For volumes over 1000 ml,
liposuction is conducted in all clinics under general anesthetic.
An anesthetist is present in all clinics when general anesthetic

In consultation with the patient, the desired
zones for fat removal are marked before the operation.
A saline solution in accordance with the patient's bodily fluids,
containing local anesthetic as well as a vasoconstrictive substance,
is injected into the desired zones below the skin. This solution
distributes evenly in the tissue within a half hour. The skin
visibly swells and appears bloated. The fat cells dissolve. Through
the use of tumescent anesthetic, the extent of bleeding and swelling
after the operation is enormously reduced.
Near to the zones marked for treatment, a small opening
via a cut of approx. 5 mm is made in the skin. A strong,
blunt 3mm cannula is introduced into this opening into the
subcutaneous tissue below the skin. This cannula is connected
via a tube to a vacuum pump and a plunger, removing the fat
through negative pressure. The cannula is carefully moved
back and forward beneath the skin. All places, which require
treatment, are therefore reached. This does not affect nerve
fibers and blood vessels. The tiny incisions are either stitched
or closed with specialist plasters after the operation.
|| Problem areas are targeted and successfully
handled. The results are visible after about 4 weeks, the final
result after 4 months at the earliest.

with a compression corsage. This should be worn for at least
6 weeks, day and night, to combat swelling and pain and to align
the skin with the altered contours of the body (also known as
the modeling of the skin). Bruises and bleeding recede after
2-3 weeks. Direct sunlight (sunshine, tanning salon) should be
avoided for approx. 3-4 months, as long-term skin markings could

the operation at the earliest. (Be careful to stop frequently,
take breaks, and move around because of the risk of thrombosis).

removed. As the cells do not grow again, the treatment leads
to sustained success.
