Liposuction in Berlin

Liposuction, also called lipolysis, is the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery in Germany. Patients sometimes suffer severely from their body shape beforehand and cannot reduce the troublesome pockets of fat through sport and diet. Liposuction is often the only way to achieve an aesthetic body silhouette. Many women have liposuction carried out on their abdomen and hips, also known as saddlebags. However, the number of male patients who want to be slimmer, preferably on the breast, but also on the stomach and in the waist area, is also increasing. Through liposuction, fat is sucked out from the desired parts of the body, so that they become slimmer and the whole body gets more beautiful proportions.

General Information About Liposuction in Berlin

Liposuction not only creates a more attractive body shape, but also reduces cellulite, as the unsightly dents are also reduced by liposuction. The fatty tissue, especially the fat cells, are sucked out through fine cannulas inserted through the skin. The fat is dissolved by means of a tumescent solution, vibrations or ultrasound. The most commonly used method is the tumescence technique. In this type of liposuction, a mixture of physiological saline solution, local anaesthetics, a vasoconstrictive agent and bicarbonate is injected into the relevant parts of the body. During a 30-minute application period, these substances cause the fat to swell, where dissolves from the rest of the tissue and can be more easily sucked out.

The regions to be treated were marked on the patient’s body before the liposuction. The inconspicuous incisions are now made in these regions, it is through these incisions a cannula is inserted to suck out the fatty tissue. The operation in Berlin lasts between one and several hours and is performed under local anaesthesia. This can also be done with twilight sleep if desired, as well as under general anaesthesia for larger liposuctions. After the liposuction, the patient must wear a compression girdle for several weeks, which supports the shaping of the body and counteracts the swelling.

The patient can and may move normally immediately after the operation, but sports should be avoided for the first weeks. The final result of the liposuction can be seen after three to six months.

Liposuction on the Face

Liposuction on the Face

Many patients find the fat pockets on their face, especially on the cheeks and chin. This can often be a blemish to an otherwise rather slim figure. Since the pockets are usually hereditary, they cannot be reduced by sport and nutrition. The only option is to perform liposuction on the affected areas. Facial liposuction is a demanding procedure, as the layer of fat is usually very thin. It is also important to take into account the anatomical features of the face. Only the superficial fat on the cheeks can be suctioned off in liposuction of the cheeks. A different procedure must be discussed for deeper lying fat. Liposuction on the chin, or the so-called double chin, is also possible. During facial liposuction, slight swelling and bruising may occur, and it is important that a compression bandage is worn for at least one to three weeks after the procedure. In addition, the facial muscles should be spared by avoiding extreme facial expressions and eating easily chewable food. In the first few days painkillers are administered and the swelling is taken care of. If stitches were also sewn during liposuction on the face, the stitches can be removed after one week. However, sport should be avoided for another one to two months.

What do I have to pay attention to during liposuction?

In addition to general potential side effects of surgical treatment such as bleeding, wound infections and healing disorders as well as excessive scarring, there are also specific risks associated with liposuction. A risk can be irregularities or unsightly dents, which in some cases occur during lipsuction because the skin reacts differently than usual.

A further risk is the possible injury caused by the movement of the cannula under the skin. Feelings of numbness or sensory disturbances are possible side effects. Allergic reactions to the narcotics can also occur. Liposuction can be dangerous, especially for overweight patients, as the risk of thrombosis is increased. During a patient consultation at the Sinis Clinic Berlin, we will inform you about possible dangerous complications during liposuction.

Whether you feel pain during a liposuction in Berlin or whether you notice the treatment depends on whether the liposuction is performed under general or local anaesthesia. Under a general anaesthetic you will not feel anything during the operation, so you will not feel any pain. This form of anaesthesia is especially recommended for larger liposuctions. During liposuction under local anesthesia, you will feel only a prick at the beginning of the operation as with ordinary injections.

Depending on the patient’s pain threshold, this sting can also be perceived as a minor pain. However, by freezing the skin in advance, the injection of the anaesthetic is more pleasant. Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, the area of the body will be anaesthetised so well that no pain is felt. A few hours after the liposuction, you may experience slight pain that reminds you of a sore muscle. However, this pain is reduced by the administration of painkillers.

Liposuction is an operation that definitely carries certain risks. Bruising, bleeding and allergic reactions are the most common complications that liposuction can lead to. In addition, wound healing problems, blood clots, long-lasting numbness or sensitivity to touch can occur. Less commonly, fat emboli and tissue fluid or blood loss may occur.

Normal and very typical side effects of liposuction include swelling and bruises on the treated body parts. During liposuction, tissue (especially blood and lymph vessels) is inevitably injured, no matter how gently and gently the treatment was performed. This results in haematomas and fluid accumulations, which manifest themselves as bruises and painful swellings. These are similar to impact or pressure injuries. How long the swelling lasts after liposuction varies depending on the patient and the procedure. Usually the swellings have already subsided after 10 days, but at the latest they have disappeared after three to six weeks.

The liposuction is performed using cannulas which suck the fat cells from the desired areas of the body. Small incisions are necessary so that these cannulas can be inserted through the skin into the fatty tissue during the operation. However, these incisions are made in places that are as hidden as possible, so there are usually no conspicuous scars left behind. After suction, the puncture sites are usually not sutured, but only treated with a patch. If suturing is necessary for slightly larger stitches, scar treatment should only begin after the stitches have been removed.

It is important that after the liposuction, a bodice or compression garment is worn on the affected body parts. This relieves stress on the tissue and reduces the appearance of the scar. We recommend a scar ointment, which is carefully massaged into the scar several times a day. During the first months the scar should be covered by fabric and not be exposed to direct sunlight. Gradually the scar will fade and become finer until it is hardly or no longer visible.

Liposuction is a purely aesthetic procedure and being overweight cannot be treated or cured by this. During liposuction, the fat tissue is sucked out at the desired body sites, but the disadvantage is that the remaining fat cells in the body continue to store fat. The patient can also gain weight again after liposuction if he or she has the wrong lifestyle. In the long term, sport and a healthy diet are of great importance for an aesthetic body shape. Even though liposuction is a standard operation in plastic surgery in Berlin, complications and side effects can still occur. This can lead to bleeding, secondary bleeding, infections and severe scarring. The latter can be an aesthetic or even functional disadvantage and cause pain. Swelling, hardening and also skin irregularities can last for a quarter of a year after liposuction.

A further risk is the sensation of numbness in the affected areas of the body, but this is completely normal in the first few weeks and usually disappears. Allergic reactions to substances used may also occur. Another side effect can be a disturbance in wound healing, especially if the patient is taking anticoagulant drugs such as aspirin. The drugs should be discontinued a few weeks before the liposuction to avoid this.

Costs of Liposuction in Sinis Clinic Berlin

The costs for a liposuction cannot be determined in detail in advance. Each patient and each procedure must be considered individually. Aspects such as the personal initial situation, the desired result, the procedure and the extent of the liposuction are decisive for the calculation of the costs. A first personal meeting in our Sinis Clinic Berlin is therefore very important. When considering your operation, we would strongly recommend that you do not put the costs above your health.

It is your body that is at stake, which is why you should pay attention to a high quality and professional treatment, even if it may be a little more expensive than supposed bargain offers. Get more information about the prices for liposuction here.

Health insurance companies do not cover treatment costs for purely aesthetic procedures. Also, morbid obesity is not a health insurance benefit, as liposuction is not recognized as a therapy. However, since December 2019, the costs of liposuction have been reimbursed in one specific case – for stage III lipedema. However, this requires an appropriate diagnosis and six months of therapy without relief of symptoms. The scheme is provisionally limited until the end of 2024.

Prices for liposuction vary between about 1500 and 6000 euros. The exact cost varies depending on the amount of fat to be removed, the extent of the surgery and the area of the body to be treated. In addition, consultation as well as post-treatment costs are added. The total price of liposuction may also increase due to postoperative complications – for example, due to extended follow-up treatments or hospital stays.

Since the high costs of liposuction are not reimbursed by health insurance companies, you can consider the possibility of paying in installments. For this purpose, numerous credit institutions offer various financing models and installment payment systems that are specifically tailored to liposuction. The attractive monthly installments give you the possibility to realize your plans without having to forfeit a qualitative treatment. We will provide you with detailed advice and, if you wish, we will draw up a financing model tailored to your individual needs – naturally without obligation and discreetly, which you can then agree with a financial institution. As soon as you receive positive feedback from the bank, you can put your liposuction into action.
