Most of the population is struggling with excess fat during their lives. Especially for women, fat often stores in the body parts like abdomen, hips, and thighs, but even for men, these problems are not an exception. Nor is it the rule that fat must be in these places. For example, some people are bothered by fat gathering the chest or arm areas. Occasionally it holds there so firmly that healthy eating and enough movement are not enough to get rid of it. It is for this case particularly that the classic tumescent liposuction is popular.
Of course, it is best if it is possible to get rid of excess fat on your own, but often it is not possible. And liposuction can help in these situations. Pay a visit to our clinic for a free consultation and our specialist will advise you on which liposuction method to choose for the optimal results.
For years this has been a proven procedure during which fat is sucked out with a thin cannula. Today this traditional method of liposuction is completely safe, does not cause any significant scars and can be used practically for any area. Of course, it is suitable not only for women but also for men. In some cases, it is also used for fat removal from male breasts.
Because the procedure is performed in local anesthesia, recovery is very rapid and patients manage it well.
Tumescent liposuction is suitable for almost any area, whether it is typically problematic, like belly, hips, outer and inner thighs or arms, jowls The procedure is performed for persons in good physical and psychological condition.

Tumescent liposuction is definitely not a way to get rid of obesity. Obese people cannot have liposuction done, first, they have to lose weight. Sometimes, the vision of the procedure becomes such a motivation that people actually lose even ten or more kilos in order to have it done. That is how it should work. Liposuction is the way to remove fat from the areas which most trouble you, not a chance to change your whole figure.

Each patient must undergo a preoperative examination to avoid unnecessary complications. We need information about blood clotting, allergic symptoms, used drugs and similar. We will not operate on a patient with the flu to make the most for his or her safety. Skin diseases such as acne, eczema and skin mold are also the reason for a delay.
