High Definition 4D Liposuction – Lausanne

«High Definition Liposuction» or «4D Liposculpture» is considered a «Game Changer» in the body contouring arena as it allows your surgeon to precisely sculpt your body. The goal of this HD liposuction is to harmoniously bring out the muscles of the body,for example for the abdomen, chest and hips. High Definition Liposuction by PAL® applies to patients who regularly practice sports, have good skin quality and have a BMI not exceeding 27 kg / m2. Rare are plastic surgeons in Switzerland who offer it and above all know how to perform it. A great deal of experience in “classic” liposuction as well as “lipofilling” is necessary before performing this type of surgery. Your own fat tranfert can be used to combine treatments to augment the chest, the buttocks orcertain muscle groups.

General information

Many people go to the gym regularly and pay attention to a balanced diet, yet the areas of the body where you would like to see the muscles appear often do not seem to improve. It is precisely for these areas that High Definition Liposuction is the right treatment for shaping a perfect body. With this method, the areas of fat between the selected muscles are specifically suctioned out. The PAL ®method focuses its effect mainly on the respective fat cells and protects the surrounding structures,such as nerve paths, blood vessels and ligaments. The appearance of the "six packs" becomes possible. During the same session, the fat can be reused and re-injected into different areas such as the buttocks or the chest. The fat transfert is called "lipofilling". Lipofilling dispenses 100% with the use of foreign substances, which makes the obtained effect very natural.

At the Bellefontaine Clinic

Before the procedure

During the first consultation for High Definition Liposuction 4D, patients get to know us and can discuss their ideas, wishes and questions with us in peace and quiet. As we have a great deal of experience in the field of liposuction, we can answer all your questions comprehensively. We make sure that High Definition iposuction 4D is a treatment that will meet your expectations. High Definition Liposuction applies to patients who regularly practice sports, have good skin quality and have a BMI not exceeding 27 kg / m2. During this consultation we measure body weight, height, fat percentage and thickness of the subcutaneous fat layer. During the first consultation, the areas to be treated will be drawn in a standing position and checked in front of a mirror. Smoking should ideally be stopped 3 weeks before and 3 weeks after the liposuction operation. At the end of the session, we will create a treatment plan adapted to your needs and expectations.

During the procedure

On the day of the operation, we focus exclusively on you, no other patients with the same surgical treatment are scheduled. This gives us the necessary time to perform your liposuction with complete peace of mind. During the operation, we have a very pleasant atmosphere, the operating room is located in a soothing location with a view of the rooftops of Lausanne. For a harmonious and natural result, the problem areas are marked in a standing position and with contraction of the muscles to be treated. In the lying position, the surgical area is disinfected and covered sterile. A tumescent solution is then passed through very small incisions - only 3 to 4 mm - in the marked areas. It contains analgesics and medicines to relieve subsequent bruising. Aspiration is then carried out using High Definition suction micro-cannulas. In order to achieve an optimal result, several checks are carried out in the standing position. This process prevents irregularities. For example, the abdomen is completely different when lying down than when standing. Small bumps are often only visible in the standing position. The length of the operation depends on the amount of fat to be removed and the type of anaesthesia, from two to four hours. The operation can usually be performed on an outpatient basis. Between 1 and 4 litres of fat can be removed in a single session. For health reasons, it is not recommended to remove more than 5 liters of fat per session during your liposuction.

After the procedure

A specific "Epifoam" dressing is placed on the areas where High Definition 4 D liposuction has been performed. A first dressing is applied one week after the operation. A compression garment is then placed over the Epifoam dressing directly after the procedure. It supports the skin's adaptation processes and must be worn for three weeks day and night, and for a further three weeks only at night. After High Definition Liposuction 4D, prophylactic antibiotics must be taken for seven days. One week after liposuction, the treated area is often swollen and indurated. The swelling and indurations diminish after 2 to 3 weeks and definitively after 3 to 6 months. In order to avoid irregularities and hardening of the treated areas due to soft tissue healing, lymphatic massage or LPG endermologie treatment is strongly recommended one week after liposuction. A stable weight is an important measure for an optimal final result. Fat cells removed by liposuction cannot grow back. Only in case of strong weight gain - the remaining fat cells can become larger. The final result can only be evaluated a few weeks to 3 months after the operation. If you have any questions, you can always reach us personally by phone using our emergency number. Sports, sauna, full baths and sun/solarium should be avoided for the first 6 weeks. Small skin incisions should be protected with sunscreen (SPF 50) for the next few months.

Risks and side effects

After High Definition Liposuction 4D, the skin's sensitivity to touch may be slightly reduced. Bruising, redness and slight swelling regularly appear after the operation but will disappear in the time. Slight bumps and asymmetries are also possible. As we carry out regular checks during the operation, the risk of having a bump or asymmetry after the operation is low. Infections, haematomas and necrosis are very rare after High Definition Liposuction 4D.
