Fat removal – Liposuction on the legs
Unpleasant fat deposits on the legs are usually a typically female problem. Liposuction on the legs – depending on the problem zone – may take place at several points. If patients suffer as a result of their so-called saddlebags, the team of specialists applies liposuction to remove the fat along the side of the hip to the upper third of the thigh. If the problem is that the thighs have too much fat tissue, we remove the excess fat on the inner and outer sides of the thighs.
Liposuction on the legs – How it is done
Liposuction in the leg area removes the excess fat that stubbornly withstands sport and diets. This fat is situated between the skin and the musculature. We mark the relevant areas before the operation while the patient is standing, so that liposuction is performed in the right places.
The Bodyjet® system
The Bodyjet® system revolutionised liposuction due to the particularly gentle method, which can be easily performed as outpatient treatment! Fat removal or liposuction is still the most popular cosmetic operation worldwide. Every surgeon wishes to achieve a particularly successful result. And this in as reliably predictable and as gentle a manner as possible. For years, liposuction has been performed using the so-called tumescent technique (tumescendere inflate swell), the swelling of the tissue using large quantities of water and local anaesthetic. This, however, involves several major disadvantages: The areas to be enhanced can no longer be reliably assessed due to the large quantity of water applied. Serious side effects may occur, such as thromboses, embolisms or cardiac arrhythmia.
These side effects are now immediately a thing of the past. With the significant support of Dr. Tork, a new method of liposuction has been developed, which reliably rules out these problems. Water-jet assisted liposuction, called WAL for short.
During the course of medical history, water-jet technology has always been applied when top priority was placed on the tissue-conserving preparation of the target structure with the lowest possible irritation of the surrounding vessels, nerves and connective tissue cell structures. WAL benefits from this.
