What is lipomatic (laughing and tickling) liposuction?
Liposuction is one of the most common body aesthetic operations in the world. Since the results are very impressive, it is an operation that is increasingly favored by both men and women. Despite healthy diet and regular exercise, certain body parts (pelvis, waist, abdomen, etc.) where you can not get rid of the fat, liposuction may be a good solution. A wide range of different application techniques are available: conventional lipo, laser lipo and ultrasound lipo are some of them. One of the newest technologies developed in this field is "Lipomatic".
What is a lipomatic?
Lipomatic is a state-of-the-art, FDA-approved device designed to increase the comfort of patients and doctors in liposuction. In the body, the cannula created by the three-dimensional vibration movement infrasonic (less than 20 Hz) waves are generated, which produce a natural anesthesia during and after surgery. With the vibration movement, it is possible to break down the fats and easily remove them, without damaging the surrounding tissue (vessels and nerves). Thus, the frequency of bruising and pain after surgery is extremely reduced. The advantages of the ultrasonic liposuction method over the classical and ultrasonic liposuction methods can be summarized as follows:
Faster and heal healing, faster return to everyday activities
Reduction of bruising, swelling and pain
The fact that the stem cells are not damaged in the fat increases the success in refilling the absorbed fat. (Lips, breasts, facials, etc.)
Shortening of the operation time
The movement of infrasound vibrations stimulates collagen synthesis in the subcutaneous tissue and makes the skin tighten. This effect is a big win for post-liposuction healing. Hanging of the skin after laser and ultrasound liposuction is not seen in Lipomat.
Cellulitis and excessive sweating (armpits) can be treated
The vibrating cannula tip automatically stops when it touches a tissue other than fatty tissue. This eliminates the risk of damage to the surrounding tissue and internal injuries
In areas such as e.g. Lower leg and ankle where you can not achieve results with classical methods, it delivers successful results. It is the ideal method for thinning the ankle.
Because of all these features, the lipomatic (infrasonic liposuction) method is more and more preferred. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia according to the size of the area used. Because the effects of sedation-induced vibration cannulas create additional anesthesia, the method is also referred to as liposuction, which makes you laugh. Under general anesthesia you spend the night in the hospital. The patient will be discharged the next day. For wide field applications, this period varies between 7 and 10 days. The patient should wear an elastic corset for 20 days. Although the thinning of the body is noticeable immediately after the operation, the thinning continues for days and takes its final shape after 2-3 months. Let me remind you of one point: liposuction is not used for weight loss. It is used to correct body contours by removing unwanted fat masses. Therefore, the patient can not be made to accept such an obligation in advance. As a rule, 2 to 5 liters of fat are removed. Depending on the patient's structure, up to 10-12 liters of fat can be extracted. The results are pleasing and satisfactory.
