Liposuction at the Noahklinik Kassel

Sport and a healthy diet are supposed to make fat deposits disappear or prevent them from appearing in the first place. But the body does not always break down fat as reliably as desired. The result is small fat pads - for example on the stomach - which are a thorn in the side of those affected. In addition to these aesthetically motivated complaints, there is a disease that is called Lipedema is called. This is a fat distribution disorder that is particularly noticeable on the legs, buttocks and in the area of the arms. Diets and exercise usually do not help here. A reliable method to get rid of excess fat is liposuction. In the course of plastic surgery at the Noahklinik Kassel, a specialist removes fat cells from the body.

Testimonials from patients

When is liposuction useful?

We perform liposuction at the Noahklinik in Kassel when patients are bothered by stubborn fat deposits or suffer from pressure pains and swelling as a result of lipedema. This is because, especially in the case of lipedema, conservative therapies rarely provide long-lasting relief from the pain.

The following areas of the body are suitable for liposuction that is as gentle as possible:

  • Neck
  • Hanging cheeks
  • Double chin
  • Upper arms, forearms
  • Thighs, especially saddlebags
  • Abdomen, hips, waist
  • in the course of a breast reduction
  • Lipedema

However, patients should note that liposuction is not suitable for losing excess weight. The aim is merely to bring out the silhouette of the body by suctioning out small pockets of fat.

How does liposuction work? How much fat can be suctioned?

Liposuction methods

Tumescent solution against fatty tissue: The tumescent technique

During this procedure, a special solution is introduced into the area to be treated. The fatty tissue accumulates with the liquid and can then be sucked out via a cannula using slight negative pressure. Surrounding structures such as veins and nerves are not usually damaged by this method.

Vibration assisted liposuction

With the vibration technique, the fat is virtually "shaken out". For smaller suction volumes, a local anaesthetic is sufficient for the duration of the operation. For volumes over 1000 ml, however, a general anaesthetic is advantageous. The fine cannula used oscillates up to 80 times per second and thus ensures that the fat cells burst and can then be suctioned out.

Water jet technique - liposuction using water

This surgical procedure to remove fatty tissue works with a jet of water that is brought under the skin via a cannula. This treatment is also usually performed under local anaesthetic. The water now "washes" out the fat cells - usually without damaging surrounding tissue. We use this technique exclusively for lipedema. Furthermore, this method is an excellent way to remove fat for the Lipofilling can be won.

Liposuction and tightening with radio frequency

A fourth option is the so-called BodyTite™ method. Here, tumescent solution is also introduced into the corresponding area. The radiofrequency waves now heat the tissue both from the outside via a handpiece and from the inside. This causes the existing collagen fibres in the dermis to contract - the skin is tightened. At the same time, the emulsion of fat cells and tumescent solution is suctioned out via the handpiece. 

The advantage of this method is that liposuction and the subsequent Skin tightening can be performed in a joint treatment. In addition, radiofrequency therapy can also be used independently of liposuction to treat cellulite and wrinkles.
