PAL liposuction

Information on Liposuction operation

Fat tissue accumulating at different body parts can cause outline discrepancies, which then lead to aesthetic and psychological complaints. Whereas usually only a small amount of fat is concerned, at different body parts, (area of the stomach, under the navel, waist, outer parts of thighs, etc.) it is almost impossible to get rid of them even with exercise or diet. In these cases the patient is advised for liposuction, the aim of which is to change the proportions with the reduction of the amount of fat tissue under the skin. As the point of the intervention is to change the outline and proportions of the body by the reduction of the amount of fat cells, one can expect long lasting results.

The operation


During the operation the locally accumulated fat tissues are removed with a vacuum which is adjusted to the surrounding bulk of fat tissues. The operation is performed with local, or in the case of the removal of a considerable amount of fat, general anaesthetic. The intervention is done through small incisions, (max. one centimeter) depending on the bulk of fat to be removed. A new method of liposuction is the PAL (Power Assisted Liposuction), a vibrational liposuction that makes the procedure faster and more gentle owing to the new special devices used. This method involves a lower risk of arterial injury as well as less post operational problems.

Aftercare


Depending on the areas of surgical intervention, swelling, excess liquid or bleeding can occur. To avoid these and to allow for a proper healing of the skin, chilling and the wearing of a special compressional bands/belts, tried on by the patient prior to the operation, is necessary. Following the monitoring period the patient is released home accompanied by an attender. Observation of instructions and homecare is the patient’s responsibility. Following the operation the patient will need regular check-ups/consultations.

Possible complications


They can be grouped into two categories: medical and aesthetic complications.

Medical complications
Bleeding, inflammation, whey accumulation, injury of skin nerves, death of skin, fat embolism, anaesthetic complications. However, they are growing rare due to the improvement of medical science and can be dealt with.

Aesthetic complications


Uneven outline, discolouring of skin, crust disorders, asymmetry. These can be corrected with another intervention.

Recovery


As we mentioned before, the surgical intervention involves an extensive area so operational healing is not negligible either. The intervention inflicts a pressure on the organism so the patient becomes weaker and more drowsy than normal. There is no need to stay in bed but plenty of rest is advised for a few days. Following the operation the area concerned might develop some swelling, local pain, sensitivity to pressure or haemorrahage under the skin. The pain lasts a couple of days and can be kept at bay with the help of common painkillers (Algopyrin, Donalgin, Cataflam). The swelling or bloodshot areas need a couple of weeks to disappear but these conditions are painless and involve only blue-yellow-green discolouration of the skin. The final desired shape is gained only six to eight weeks following the liposuction. To retain the shape developed during the operation wearing of the compresional belts/bands is a must.


The result of liposuction is long lasting provided the body weight remains steady. Weight loss or weight gain naturally affect the operated areas but the proportions developed remain intact.
