Liposuction For Lymphoedema & Lipoedema

Liposuction for advanced lymphoedema and lipoedema offers an effective solution to significantly reduce volume in the lower or upper extremities for carefully selected patients. Unlike cosmetic liposuction, this technique utilizes ICG imaging for targeted guidance, preserving existing lymphatics—a unique approach by Mr. Kosutic that enhances safety and reliability for patients. Excess fat and fluid are removed through tiny incisions on the limbs, mostly concealed. The procedure is largely bloodless, minimizing bruising, swelling, and pain. Suitable for advanced lymphoedema and lipoedema cases, it can be performed under general anesthesia as a day-case procedure or with an overnight stay.

Please use the below list of frequently asked questions and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any other questions or would like to discuss this procedure.

The length of your hospital stay after liposuction can vary depending on several factors, including the extent of the procedure, your overall health, and your surgeon’s recommendations. In many cases, liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you can typically go home the same day after a short observation period. However, for more extensive liposuction or if there are any complications, your surgeon may recommend an overnight stay in the hospital for monitoring and post-operative care. It’s essential to follow your surgeon’s instructions regarding post-operative care and follow-up appointments for the best recovery outcomes.

The size of the scar from liposuction for lymphoedema and lipoedema can vary depending on factors such as the technique used, the amount of fat removed, and individual healing characteristics. Typically, the scars are relatively small, as the procedure involves making tiny incisions through which a cannula is inserted to remove excess fat and fluid. These incisions are usually a few millimeters in size and are strategically placed to minimize visibility. Over time, the scars tend to fade and become less noticeable. It’s essential to discuss any concerns about scarring with your surgeon before undergoing the procedure.

The goal of liposuction is to reshape and contour specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits. This surgical procedure targets stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise, aiming to create a more balanced and proportionate appearance.

Suitability for liposuction depends on several factors, including:

1. Adequate skin elasticity: Liposuction is most effective when the skin can shrink and conform to the body’s new contours after fat removal. Good skin elasticity helps prevent sagging or loose skin post-surgery.

2. Overall health: Candidates should be in good general health and free from underlying medical conditions that could increase the risk of complications during or after the procedure.

3. Stable weight: Liposuction is not a weight-loss solution but rather a body contouring procedure. Candidates should be at or near their ideal weight and have realistic expectations about the results.

4. Specific fat deposits: Liposuction is suitable for individuals with localized fat deposits in areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, or chin that are resistant to diet and exercise.

5. Psychological readiness: Candidates should have a positive outlook and realistic expectations about the outcomes of liposuction. It’s essential to understand that liposuction can enhance body contours but may not achieve perfection or address underlying issues like cellulite.

Yes, wearing compression garments after liposuction is typically recommended by surgeons to support the healing process and optimize results. These garments are designed to provide gentle pressure to the treated areas, reducing swelling, promoting proper skin retraction, and helping to contour the body.

The duration and type of compression garment may vary depending on the extent of the liposuction procedure and individual healing characteristics. In general, patients are advised to wear compression garments continuously for the first few weeks following surgery, gradually transitioning to wearing them during the day for a few additional weeks as needed.

Wearing compression garments as directed by your surgeon can help minimize discomfort, improve circulation, and enhance the overall outcome of your liposuction procedure. It’s essential to follow your surgeon’s recommendations regarding garment use and post-operative care for the best results.
