Frequently asked questions

In our FAQ, all the answers to the questions you have about a possible surgery and aesthetic medicine operation.

Are there permanent scars or changes after the procedure?

Scars are minimal and wear off over time. They measure less than 1 cm and are located in easily hidden areas.

What are the possible risks and complications?

As with all procedures, there are risks and complications can occur (bleeding, infection, disunity, scarring hazards, etc.). These are infrequent and can be taken care of quickly by the surgeon during post-operative checks. An information sheet from the French Society of Plastic Surgery will be given to you before the procedure.

Is it painful?

Depending on the size of the area to be treated, the patient may experience mild to moderate pain in the first two days after surgery. However, the pain is generally bearable and can be easily controlled with the help of common pain relievers.

What results can we expect?

The best results are obtained when the fat is localized and the skin is not stretched and still has good elasticity. Liposuction thus reduces localized fat volumes and improves the body's silhouette. The result obtained is sustainable. The deep fat removed leads to a significant thinning of the treated areas. However, the weight must be stable to maintain the benefit of the intervention.

How long do you have to stay in the clinic?

Depending on the extent of the operation, the patient may leave during the day or stay in the clinic overnight.

How long does the surgery take?

The duration of the procedure depends largely on the size of the areas to be treated, as well as on the amount of fat to be removed. It can vary from 30 minutes to 3 or 4 hours.

What is the type of anesthesia?

Depending on the number of areas to be treated, there are different types of anesthesia: local, local with sedation, block anesthesia (epidural or spinal) or general anesthesia. The best option will be chosen depending on the patient and the areas to be treated.
