About lipomodelling procedure:
For successful lipomodelling a surgeon requires a lot of a patient’s fat tissue. A surgeon can obtain this tissue by cell membrane rupture using electric current, separation of lipocytes using special solutions, and exposing live cells to ultrasound. It is important for all methods mentioned above to preserve the functioning capability of the fat cells.
In the course of the procedure the excess fat is removed with a syringe. Then, these cells are disinfected and relocated to the areas as appropriate. It is desirable to perform such surgery during a cold season as getting through the recovery period is a bit harder in summer. This procedure is completely safe, low-trauma and leaves no scars.
Preparation to lipomodelling procedure:
As any other surgery lipomodelling requires certain preparation from a patient. The standard preoperative examination is performed including undergoing a number of tests: biochemical blood and urine tests, blood test for viruses (hepatitis, AIDS, syphilis, etc.); the blood clotting ability and Rh factor are determined.
The cardiovascular system is examines by means of electrocardiography, respiratory organs, liver and kidneys are inspected using X-ray imaging. Consultations are held with an anesthesiologist and surgeon to discuss the process of the procedure, anesthesia methods and approve an individual treatment plan. 2 to 3 weeks before the correction procedure a patient should stop smoking and consuming alcohol.
It is also required to start a low-carb diet. 2 weeks prior to surgery it is necessary to cease taking medicines affecting the blood clotting ability. A few days before the procedure a patient should reduce any muscular load in abdominal area and avoid intense sports activities.
Surgery/procedure duration: 2 hours
Anesthesia: general anesthesia
Right after the procedure a special adhesive bandage is applied to the wounds. A patient should stay at the clinic under a doctor’s supervision for a day. Then a patient is discharged from the clinic. From the first day after plastic surgery a patient must wear special compression garments. On the 3rd day after the procedure swelling and pain increases. A doctor prescribes analgesics but as soon as pain intensity subsides the dosage of painkillers is reduced.
During the recovery period a patient can experience fatigue, chills and small bruising. The stitches are removed in 1.5 week. Within this period a patient can also experience a mild depression or mental instability due to body contour imperfection after the procedure. It is explained to the patients that the final result can be seen after at least a half a year.
A doctor can prescribe physiotherapy to speed up the healing process. The wellness period begins in 2 months. Small swelling still can occur. It is useful to swim during this period as swimming facilitates skin lifting. The desired result of plastic surgery becomes visible in 4 to 5 months.
