Liposuction in Frankfurt

With liposuction, we can permanently remove fat deposits and shape your new dream figure

Stubborn fat deposits are not only annoying and unsightly, they often cannot be eliminated despite exercise and dieting. In women, the annoying fat deposits usually lead to the well-known "saddlebags" on the thighs and buttocks, but also to fat deposits on the hips or other parts of the body. In men, the problem areas are mostly on the hips, flanks and stomach.

One Liposuction makes it possible to eliminate these fat deposits for good. As liposuction significantly reduces the number of fat cells, the body contour is permanently harmonised. Existing cellulite, the unpleasant "orange peel skin", is also significantly smoothed by liposuction and often disappears.

At our clinic, we only use the tissue-sparing methods of vibration-assisted liposuction (power-assisted liposuction PAL) and water-jet-assisted liposuction (water-jet-assisted liposuction WAL). Find out more from our experienced specialist in plastic and aesthetic surgery Dr Norbert Kania.

What are the reasons for liposuction?

Despite regular exercise and diet, unwanted fat deposits can develop in various parts of the body. Even the most targeted training cannot eliminate them. This is where liposuction can help. 

For many patients following reasons available:

  • Irregular distribution of body fat
  • Influencing self-perception and self-esteem
  • Fat deposits that do not disappear after pregnancy
  • An existing fat distribution disorder (see also Lipoedema)

Frequent areaswhich are treated:

  • Belly
  • Hips
  • Chin / double chin
  • Thigh
  • Upper arms
  • Po
  • Calves
  • Back

The Liposuction is used for body shaping - not weight reduction

How liposuction surgery works

How does liposuction surgery work?

Firstly, a special solution (tumescent solution) is injected into the fat pads during the treatment. The solution contains a lot of liquid (saline solution), local anaesthetic and a little adrenaline to contract the blood vessels and minimise bleeding.
The fat is then suctioned out through small incisions in as inconspicuous a location as possible, e.g. in the belly button or in natural folds, using thin cannulas that are set into rapid oscillation (5,000/minute) by a vibrating handpiece. The rounded tip of the cannula vibrates past connective tissue fibres, blood vessels and nerves into the soft fatty tissue. The vibration means that hardly any force is required and the tissue is spared.

In water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL), the tumescent solution is injected into the tissue under pressure in a wafer-thin jet of liquid from inside the suction cannula. The fat cells detach from the connective tissue fibres and are suctioned out immediately. 

This gentle procedure is particularly suitable for the removal of fatty tissue that is to be reused elsewhere (autologous fat transplantation) or for the liposuction of smaller fat pads, for example on the knees and ankles.

What is the procedure if I want to have liposuction?

Before the treatment itself is carried out, a consultation and examination is necessary. Our experienced specialist Dr Kania will determine your initial situation. By comparing this with your desired changes, the exact course of treatment and your personalised treatment plan for your surgical procedure can be drawn up.

During the consultation appointment, we will discuss all your questions, possible risks, possible alternatives and your expected healing process with you, so that you can decide for yourself after this appointment whether you want to have the operation performed.

What to look out for after liposuction?

After minor procedures, you will be virtually unaffected. Larger liposuction procedures can lead to discomfort comparable to severe muscle soreness. This condition can be tolerated well with mild painkillers. In most cases, however, no painkillers are required. Consistent compression treatment is essential for the healing process and shrinkage of the skin. Even if the external incisions are minimal, the internal wound area is sometimes large - especially in the case of larger liposuctions.

You will be fit for socialising again as soon as you are discharged from the clinic. Nevertheless, you should first three weeks take it easy after the operation. 

After three weeks, light sporting activities are permitted. However, the suctioned body areas must not be strained too much. Six weeks After the operation you will be able to return to full sporting activity.

Compression underwear

Wearing compression garments is the only way to achieve the desired result. You should expect to have to wear a compression garment for six weeks after the operation.

Questions & answers about liposuction in Frankfurt

What needs to be considered before the operation?

Weight loss

Before undergoing liposuction, you should reach a weight that you can realistically maintain. The closer you are to your realistic normal weight before the procedure, the more satisfied you will be with the result.

What scars can be expected?

All resulting scars are barely longer than five to six millimetres and are placed in inconspicuous areas.

What complications and risks can occur during liposuction?

Liposuction creates a large internal wound area, which is why there is almost always swelling and sometimes minor bruising. More serious complications such as wound healing disorders or circulatory disorders of the skin are extremely rare. The sensitivity of the skin to touch can decrease, especially with larger liposuction procedures. This usually disappears after a few months.

In rare cases, irregularities or wrinkles may occur after the operation if the skin does not shrink completely.

How useful is liposuction?

Liposuction of the abdomen, buttocks and legs is useful if unwanted fat deposits cannot be corrected by dieting or targeted exercise. Liposuction is used for body shaping. The procedure is one of the best-known surgical treatments in the field of aesthetic plastic surgery.

The most frequently treated areas are

  • Tummy / hips / waist
  • Double chin removal
  • Thighs / removal of saddlebags
  • Removal of a female breast appendage in men or gynaecomastia
  • Liposuction for lipoedema

What is high definition liposuction?

High definition liposuction is a method that is not just about removing large fat deposits - rather, the focus is on delicate body shaping. It is also suitable for slimmer patients with localised problems (More information on High Definition Liposuction).

How much does liposuction cost?

The costs incurred are always based on the work involved. They result from the combination of different factors (e.g. necessary duration of the operation, required girdle, size and extent of the treated area, etc.). Therefore, exact information on the costs can only be given after an examination.

Financing is available on request. You can find more information on this at Financing

Which anaesthetic is used and is an inpatient stay necessary?

As a rule, treatment is carried out Outpatient and there will be a local anaesthesia applied. For very extensive liposuction, a general anaesthetic and an overnight stay in our clinic may be advisable in individual cases.
