What is Liposuction?

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, liposculpture or “lipo“, is a cosmetic surgery that reduces the volume of fat and reshapes specific areas of the body. The objective of this surgery is to obtain a finer and more harmonious silhouette. It helps to effectively remove fat in areas where even sports or diet have failed. It is for women and men.


Liposuction has recently grown thanks to new technologies that make the procedure more effective and less painful. It is also the most popular cosmetic surgery operation. Thus, every year thousands of patients use this procedure.

Finally, it should be noted that liposculpture is not intended for obese people and is not a method to lose weight. Patients wishing to lose weight should be advised to revise their lifestyle. Our surgeons also recommend that patients reach their ideal weight before using this surgery.

Different Techniques of Liposuction

There are several liposuction techniques. Some are newer and others older. However, each technique has its advantages and disadvantages.

Classic Liposuction

The classic liposuction is one of the most popular. The surgeon removes the fat manually using a cannula connected to a suction system.

Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent liposuction is similar to classic liposuction, except that the surgeon first infiltrates a fluid based on saline and lidocaine which facilitates the isolation and extraction of fat cells. This technique allows for faster recovery and reduces the risk of complications.

Assisted Liposuction

Assisted liposuction is similar to conventional liposculpture, except that a small motor at the cannula emits vibrations to facilitate detachment of fat cells.

Ultrasonic Liposuction

Ultrasonic liposuction uses a cannula that emit ultrasonic sound waves to help detach and remove the fat. This technique has the advantage of dealing with larger areas.

Vaser® Liposuction

Vaser® Liposuction also uses ultrasound to break and remove fat. Compared to the ultrasound technique, its technology reduces the risk of burns and discomfort by leaving the surrounding nerves and tissues intact during aspiration.

Preparation for Liposuction

Two weeks before liposuction, food supplements, vitamins and drugs containing aspirin are banned as they increase the risk of bleeding.

In addition, for smokers, it is asked to stop smoking two weeks before surgery, the cigarette increases the operating risks and lengthens the healing period.

During the consultation in our clinic in Budapest, Hungary, the doctor will carry out a medical check-up: blood tests, urine tests and electrocardiogram.

Finally, if the operation is done under general anesthesia, it will be necessary to present fasting to the clinic the day of the intervention.

Procedure of Liposuction

Length of Stay

A 7-day stay in Hungary in Budapest is necessary.


Liposuction can be done under local anesthesia or under general anesthesia. When there are few areas to treat the operation is done under local anesthesia. If the number of zones is important, the operation will be under general anesthesia.

Duration of the Procedure

The duration of the operation is 1 to 3 hours. It will depend on the number of regions to be treated.


In most cases, a fluid injection is done after anesthesia. Incisions are made in areas where the fat cells must be removed. These are short, between 3 and 4 mm.


The fat is removed using a cannula that fits through the incisions. This cannula is connected to a powered system that will absorb fat cells. The surgeon will be able to remove between 4 and 5 kg of fat per procedure.

Closing the Incisions

At the end of the liposculpture, the surgeon places sutures and bandages on the incisions. The incisions are small, the scars are generally discrete.


When the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, the patient can return to his hotel after the procedure.

If the operation is under general anesthesia, the patient stays overnight at the clinic and leaves the next day.

In both cases, the surgeon will carry out a check before your return to France. In general, this check takes place within 3 days after the operation.

Recovery after Liposuction

The recovery time varies from one individual to another and according to the number of treated areas.

A medication will be prescribed to manage the discomfort.

The stitches are removed 12 days after liposuction.

Bruising generally disappears within 2 weeks after lipoplasty and swelling will progressively decrease over time.

The skin tightened with time and will return to its normal appearance a few months after liposuction.

Finally, regarding sports activities, the surgeon will tell you when you can exercise again.

Results of Liposuction

Your new figure will be remarkable within 2 weeks and the final result visible about 1 and a half after the operation. Liposculpture gives impressive results and can lose up to two sizes of jeans. Many patients come back satisfied with this intervention. Finally, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, eating a balanced diet and practicing a sport regularly, will preserve the results over time.

Every cosmetic surgery carries risks. This is also the case for liposuction. These risks include:

  • infections
  • anesthesia
  • loss or accumulation of fluids
  • blood clots (phlebitis)
  • bleeding
  • infections
