Liposuction, also known as lipoaspiration or liposculpture, is a surgical procedure that targets the elimination of localized deposits of excess fat. It may be carried out on the hips, the buttocks, the inner and outer thighs, the inner knee, ankles, abdomen, arms, and under the chin. Liposuction can be carried out on different areas of the body during a single intervention and can be combined with other silhouette procedures.
Giorgio Bronz Clinic is the only one centre in Ticino offering patients Body Jet, a water-jet device used for liposuction and for separating fat ready for immediate reinjection into the body. For more information about this innovative water-assisted liposuction technique see www.mybodyjet.com.
Following the liposuction procedure, the use of an elasticized and modelling girdle is required for between three and six weeks. Sutures are removed between 5 and 7 days later. Swelling tends to disappear in about two weeks, while bruises will take three weeks to disappear. The final result is already visible after six weeks.
Anaesthesia and hospitalization
Depending on the extent of the intervention, liposuction is done under local-regional or general anaesthesia, almost always in a day hospital setting. The length of the procedure is between one and two hours, depending on the zones to be treated. Hospitalization may be required if the liposuction is combined with other silhouette interventions.
