Liposuction
Liposuction or liposculpture is the suction of excess fat deposits. These fat deposits often arise in places such as the neck, abdomen, hips, buttocks, upper legs, knees and lower legs.

With liposuction we simply remove the accumulated fat in these places. The accumulation of the fat is caused by an increased number of fat cells in these places. An important condition for liposuction is that the skin is sufficiently elastic.

The liposuction specialists of Aesthetic Center Jan van Goyen:

  • remove unwanted fat deposits;
  • bring your body proportions back into balance;
  • schedule your first consultation within two weeks;
  • have performed more than 1,500 liposuctions.

The treatment

Step 1: mark the treatment area

Prior to the treatment, we take photos for your medical file, you are weighed and we determine your body measurements. During the first consultation, you and your treating doctor have determined the treatment zones, and these are now carefully marked. The plastic surgeon also marks the places where the incisions for the small suction needles will be.

Step 2: administer anesthetic

We numb these treatment areas with injections. As soon as this anesthetic is sufficiently effective, we make the cuts. We inject the tumescent anesthetic fluid with a fine needle. This fluid constricts the blood vessels, minimizing bleeding during the procedure. It also enhances the effects of the local anesthetic. As a result, you will hardly notice the operation.

Step 3: suck out the fat

After the exposure time of 20 minutes, the plastic surgeon aspirates the fat cells using a fine suction needle. The doctor feels the skin during suction. This way he can determine whether enough fat has been removed. The needles are connected to a vacuum pump that sucks out the grease. The treatment is painless, but you may feel pressure in the treatment area. The duration of the treatment depends on the number of treatment zones. In most cases, the procedure takes between 1 and 2.5 hours.

Recovery and aftercare

After the treatment, we cover the small incisions with plasters. In most cases, the incisions are so small that suturing is not necessary. If this is necessary for you, we will remove the stitches after a week during the check-up.

You can go home on the day of the procedure. Please note that you are not allowed to drive yourself, so take someone with you to accompany you. You will experience little to no after-pain for the first few hours. This is due to the numbing effect of the tumescent fluid that continues to work for a few hours. You can then use a mild pain reliever such as paracetamol to suppress pain.

Liposuction is only reimbursed by the basic or additional health insurance if you have a medical indication. e when you can no longer function properly due to the fat deposits. In addition, liposuction must be the best method to help you get rid of your complaints. Your attending surgeon can provide the health insurer with an explanation for this. Would you like to know whether your health insurer reimburses liposuction? Ask the insurer prior to the first consultation. That way you won't be faced with any surprises.

Frequently Asked Questions

When am I a candidate for liposuction?

In principle, liposuction is suitable for everyone, but it is important that your Body Mass Index (BMI) is not above 30. Liposuction is not a suitable way to lose weight quickly.

How long does the treatment take?

The duration of treatment depends on the amount of fat that we remove. In general, the treatment lasts one to two hours.

Will I have scars after liposuction?

To remove the fatty tissue, we make small incisions of about three millimeters. The scars will therefore not become larger than this size. During the healing process, the scars will fade and become almost invisible.

How long do I have to recover?

The total recovery after the procedure takes about six to nine months. We advise you to take sufficient rest for the first two weeks. You are allowed to perform light daily activities. After about four weeks you can exercise and exercise intensively again and pick up your physically heavier work again.

What areas are most treated in women?

In general, women opt for liposuction of the following treatment zones: the saddlebags (outside of the legs), flanks (love handles), inside of the legs and the removal of excess belly fat.

What areas are most commonly treated in men?

In general, men opt for liposuction of the following treatment zones: the flanks (love handles), the removal of abdominal fat and liposuction of the back.

“There was no waiting list so my liposuction treatment could be performed quickly. I was so tired of my love handles: no matter how much I trained, I couldn't get them off. This was the only solution. I was quite nervous but the guidance was great. The result is more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed.”

“The fat on my stomach just wouldn't go away. Because of my 3 pregnancies there was always just a small 'heap of belly'. I was terribly annoyed by it. dr. Bouman has helped me from moment one and gave me the right advice. Liposuction was the best solution and it was very successful.”

“My thighs remained firm and didn't match the rest of my body at all. Because I had lost a lot of weight and my upper body had become very stretched as a result, the ratio was completely gone.”
