is a wonderful method
of shaping the body.

What you would otherwise have to struggle for with long and tedious dieting can be achieved in a few minutes or hours through liposuction in Munich: get rid of the unsightly problem areas and there will be nothing more for you to hide.

Liposuction is a wonderful method for shaping the body. By making a small incision, we can shape large areas of the body without leaving long or visible scars.

A liposuction procedure at our practice in Munich can shape almost all areas of the body: Face, throat, double chin, upper arms, back, breasts and abdomen, and naturally the legs (especially saddlebags) and buttocks.

Regardless of the region, the contours of the body are visibly slimmer and more harmonious immediately after liposuction. The classic example is with adiposity of the hips and thighs, or “saddlebags”. These are isolated fat pads on the outside of the thighs (they look like riding breeches), especially in women. Exercise and diet don’t help. Liposuction is the only successful treatment, leaving your thighs looking slim afterwards.

On the face, liposuction can be used on cheeks and a double chin, giving the face a more distinctive shape. Liposuction is also suitable for reducing and shaping the stomach, hips, buttocks, chest, arms and back.

Smaller liposuction procedures are performed under local anesthesia. However, liposuction is usually performed under brief general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. More extensive liposuction procedures require an inpatient stay. Avoid blood-thinning medication (e.g. Aspirin) for at least 14 days before the procedure. Please obtain the appropriate compression garments and bring them with you to the procedure.

The area to be shaped is first marked with a pencil. The fatty tissue is then infiltrated with a solution that prepares the fat cells for liposuction and numbs the skin region. After the solution has spread evenly throughout the fatty tissue, liposuction is performed through a small skin incision with a special cannula.

Suctioning fat is not suitable for weight loss. However, a successful liposuction procedure generally serves as additional motivation to lose weight.

A syringe is used to suction small amounts of fat. Larger amounts of fat are removed with the suction pump.

After the procedure, a special compression garment must be worn for a few days to weeks; it will allow the skin and tissue to heal and help ensure a uniform result. Compression of the tissue is part of the treatment and should not be neglected.

In addition:

  • Wear the compression garment for at least six weeks and ensure that it provides uniform, wrinkle-free compression.
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Get up as soon as possible and move without exerting yourself.
  • Avoid direct sunlight and the solarium for at least two months.
  • You should avoid strenuous activities and saunas for eight weeks after the operation.

In Germany, it is not permitted to publicly display before and after pictures of cosmetic surgery. Of course, you can view sample photos at our office during your consultation.
