Abdominal Liposuction

Deposits of fatty tissue in the abdomen area is a feature of the female body. In the case of overweight, this site undergoes the greatest changes due to which as called fat apron is formed. Long training and keeping to debilitating diets are not always helpful in the correction of this defect. Abdominal liposuction is the best option for obtaining the ideal body contours. The newest techniques used by the plastic surgeons at GRACE allow achieving the most effective result while minimising the injury of the procedure for a patient.

What is abdominal liposuction?
Liposuction is a highly effective method for correcting of the contours of the abdomen; it includes removing excessive fat deposits through a small puncture of the skin with the help of special equipment.

Duration of operation: 30-90 minutes

Rehabilitation: 2-3 weeks

Our approach to abdominal liposuction:

  • Selection of the type of abdominal liposuction taking into account the physiological characteristics of a patient.
  • Increased attention to the safety of our patients.
  • Reduction of rehabilitation period 2-3 times in comparison with other clinics.

Advantages of liposuction

  • Stable result Liposuction allows you to preserve your new-made abdomen shape for many years unlike the results after classic weight loss strategies. It has been scientifically proven that the number of fat cells remains unchanged during the human life, they tend only to increase or decrease in size. During liposuction, fat cells are removed, that is, the volume of fat deposits is decreased. Other methods involve reducing not the number of cells but the fatty tissue itself.
  • Fast result It takes only one procedure to remove six litres of fat.
  • No scarring after the operation The only evidence that liposuction has been carried out is a small scar which is hardly visible on the skin.

Indications for liposuction:

  • Local fat deposits as well as a good elasticity of the skin which allows the skin to easily contract after the operation.
  • The recommended amount of the fat removed does not exceed 2.5-3 kg per one operation.

Types of Abdominal Liposuction
Vacuum liposuction involves the introduction of special tools by the surgeon through small incisions. As a result, the subcutaneous fat is diluted followed by its removal using a vacuum.

Ultrasonic liposuction is aimed at the fat destruction by ultrasound. The method is suitable when it is necessary to remove a large amount of fat on the stomach and is characterized by a long period of healing.

Soft-lipomodelling or sparing lipomodelling is aimed at the destruction of the abdominal fat by high-frequency currents and is carried out through tiny punctures. After this type of liposuction, you can return to an active lifestyle in 2-3 days.

Important facts about liposuction

  • It will take several decades for the fat deposition to restore in the area of liposuction.
  • Liposuction does not lead to the normalisation of fat metabolism, so after it you should keep to a diet and do exercises so that fat does not accumulate in other areas.
  • Your body weight will increase if fat accumulates in the surrounding areas. Such a consequence arises in the presence of endocrine diseases, hormonal therapy, in pregnant and parous women.

Potential complications
Complications after liposuction include bleeding, wound suppuration, inflammation, fat embolism, and asymmetry. Dimples and uneven areas may occur due to incomplete contraction of the skin or irregular cicatrization in the fatty tissue, etc.

However, the ten-year experience of the GRACE Centre doctors who use the high-quality technologies and medications and pay increased attention to safety minimise the likelihood of the above-mentioned risks at GRACE.
