The female figure in particular is characterized by roundness on the buttocks, hips and thighs. “Saddle bags” in particular are often due to congenital factors; physical activities and diets are of no help in these cases.

Too Much of a Good Thing

Some women feel themselves as being too much favored by nature and suffer from pronounced fat accumulation on these areas. We repeatedly get to hear from patients affected in this way, how much it bothers them that they have a narrow waist, but need clothes 1 to 2 sizes larger because of their body size from the hips downwards. Each time, shopping becomes a frustrating experience.

Harmonious Body Contouring

If you decide to have liposuction done after a detailed consultation, go ahead and schedule an appointment with us at a date of your choice.

Optionally, thin microcannulas are used with a diameter of 1.0 to 2.5 millimeters or regular cannulas with a diameter of 3.0 millimeters upwards.

The Period after Liposuction

After surgery, you must wear a bandage for one day, and afterwards compression garments for 1 week, if liposuction was carried out with microcannulas. If regular cannulas were used, you must wear compression garments for 4 to 6 weeks.

You should be able to go back to work on the day after liposuction was performed on the buttocks, hips and thighs. Wear comfortable loose clothing over the compression garments so that no one notices your little secret.

If liposuction is carried out with microcannulas, and the healing process is optimal, you will be able do sports after 1 to 2 weeks. Based on experience, the healing process takes several weeks longer when liposuction is done with regular cannulas.
