Liposuction Permanently Eliminates Fatty Tissue

Just a few years ago, liposuction was still an exclusive cosmetic procedure. In the meantime, it has become a low-risk procedure for permanent removal of undesired disfigurating fat for optimized body sculptured contour – also thanks to its consistent refinement at Rosenpark Clinic. Dr. Sonja Sattler and Dr. Gerhard Sattler founded the Clinic more than 15 years ago as a center for liposuction. Today, our experience is based on more than 20,000 successful liposuctions.

Which liposuction method is used at Rosenpark Clinic?

At Rosenpark Clinic, liposuction is done under tumescent local anesthesia. This method was refined by Dr. Gerhard Sattler and is one of the lowest-risk liposuction methods.

How does the procedure go?

First the tissue is prepared with special tumescent local anesthesia. Then a vibration cannula is inserted into the skin through several small incisions. The doctor then loosens the excess fat cells between the skin tissue and the muscle fascia and aspirates them.

What sort of anesthesia is necessary for liposuction?

The respective areas are locally numbed with tumescent local anesthesia. To this end, a highly diluted anesthesia solution is injected into the tissue in large quantities.
The advantages of the tumescent local anesthesia for liposuction:
The patient is awake and

    • can actively position him/herself
    • can tense individual  muscles
    • can stand up for a symmetry check
    • thanks to the basic tension of his/her muscles, the body contour can be seen

    For more information about your options for a comfortable, pain-free treatment see the anesthesia section.

    When will I be able to resume my regular activities?

    As a rule, patients can generally resume their regular daily activities in three to four days. The exterior healing is usually complete after four weeks – without physical limitations during this time, except for a compression garment you shall wear during that time. Maximum reduction results as well as the tightening of the skin are expected four months after the liposuction.

    What else you can do

    • After treatment, our cosmetic department will be glad to recommend a special skin care program in order to make the healing process as easy as possible.
    • We also recommend lymph drainage in order to enhance the effect and increase absorption of undesirable swelling in the first weeks after the treatment. We offer this procedure at our Rosenpark Studio.
    • You should also drink a lot of water in order to enhance metabolization during the woundhealing process.
    • The state-of-the-art in body contouring is a combination of liposuction and laser lipolysis if cellulite or loose skin due to diets are the problem.
    • For cellulite patients we recommend additional treatments with the gentle SmoothShapes® and LPG® methods.
