Fat deposits in the hips (also, referred to as «love handles») may be extremely aesthetically unpleasant. If neither exercise nor dieting helps to get rid of these fat deposits, liposuction may help you achieve a new, harmonious body shape.
With a liposuction, the aesthetically unpleasant fat deposits of a body-conscious, athletic patient of normal weight may be reduced drastically.
For the liposuction to yield the desired effect, the skin should not be too damaged: which means it must neither be too old nor present too many stretch marks. Only if the skin is elastic enough to shrink back, will a convincing result be achieved.
For a liposuction procedure, Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch injects at first a saline solution with lidocaine and adrenalin (tumescent technique) in the hip region. After a short exposure time, the subcutaneous fat in excess is aspirated by a special device. The device first achieves a negative pressure, then aspirates the fat through cannulae.
The treated areas will work together beautifully to achieve a harmonious figure.
Depending on the treated area, between 1 and 2 hours
Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch performs the hips liposuction surgery as an ambulatory procedure at the Clinic Beethovestrasse in Zurich. Depending on the extent of the operation and your personal preferences, the procedure may also take place in the "Pyramide" clinic.
Depending on the complexity and extent of the treated area, between 2 and 5 days.
A liposuction may cause hematomas, light swelling, somatosensory disorder, tightness, aesthetically unpleasant scars, irregular body shape, or depressions (indentations). Potentially, these indentations may have to be corrected with a surgical procedure. In very rare cases, the procedure may also cause infections.
After the surgery, you must wear for 6 weeks a special compression girdle. During this time, sport, sauna, and intensive UV exposure are prohibited.
The costs may vary and will be agreed upon in advance. The price is inclusive of all services, such as the consultation, the surgery, the anesthesia, the medications, the hospitalization, the follow-up controls, and all potential corrective surgical procedures.
