Liposuction in Poland

Compare 4 clinics

Liposuction, also known as lipo or lipoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure through which excess fat is removed from different areas of the body in order to achieve a better, more aesthetically pleasing body contour.

The procedure can be done under local, regional or general anaesthesia, depending on the sensitivity of the area and the amount of fatty tissue that needs to be removed. The amount of tissue that can be removed safely depends heavily on the patient’s state of health, the area where the fat is located and other factors.

Below are some of the most popular types of liposuction a patient may turn to in order to achieve a better body contour:

● Buttocks Liposuction
● Neck Liposuction
● Arms Liposuction
● Abdomen Liposuction – with or without a Tummy Tuck
● Thighs Liposuction
● Breasts Liposuction
● Hips Liposuction
● Gynecomastia – known as male breast tissue liposuction

Liposuction Candidates

Any patient that is a bit overweight or has certain fat build ups in certain areas such as belly fat can benefit from a liposuction procedure. The most important requirement is that the patient has a stable weight before going in for surgery.

Am I Suitable for Liposuction?

Liposuction is not recommended for obese individuals or patients considering liposuction as a weight loss method. Patients suffering from heart problems, diabetes or certain infections are at risk of developing complications from liposuction surgery and they may not be good candidates for this procedure.

Preparing for Liposuction

The patient should avoid the intake of vitamins, herbal tea, any aspirin based medicine and should quit smoking at least 10 days before the liposuction surgery.

How is Liposuction Performed?

During the first part of the procedure, the patient is administered a local, regional or general anaesthetic, depending on the area where the liposuction will be performed. Once the anaesthetic sets in, the surgeon will create a few small incisions and proceed to use the cannula to break down fatty deposits in the area. Laser or ultrasound may also be used in order to liquefy fat and make it easier to extract. Once enough fat is extracted, bandages are applied to keep bleeding down to a minimum and to prevent infections.

There are a few types of liposuction available for patients, depending on their needs and the area where it needs to be done:

● Vaser Liposuction
● Laser Liposuction
● Ultrasound Liposuction
● Water assisted Liposuction

Liposuction Recovery

During the recovery period it’s essential to follow the doctor’s instructions carefully. Patients can usually return to work within a couple of days but this depends on the area where the liposuction is performed. A special type of compression garment will be worn by the patient during the recovery period. It may take a few months before the post-operatory swelling fully recedes and the patient’s new body is revealed.

Scars after Liposuction

Scars after liposuction surgery are generally small and they are barely noticeable when fully healed. Wearing the compression garment as instructed also helps reduce scarring. The scars are usually smaller than 1 cm, about the size of the cannula used in the procedure.

Liposuction Side Effects

During the first 5 to 10 days after the surgery patients may feel discomfort, swelling, bruising and inflammation. Depending on the type of anaesthesia, some patients may feel nausea or dizziness.

Liposuction Success Rates

Around 87% of patients report being satisfied with the procedure and around 86% would recommend it to family and friends.

Before and After Liposuction

Before and after liposuction photos might look appealing but patients need to keep in mind that the body needs a few months to adjust and reduce all the swelling. The patient will also need to continue following a diet in order to maintain the new body contour.

Poland

Poland or the Republic of Poland is located in Central Europe. It neighbours Germany, The Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia and Lithuania.

Poland’s countryside is traditional and unspoiled. Tourists can visit museums, churches, rural centres, castles and traditional Polish workshops. Since Poland joined the European Union there was an influx of international travellers coming into the country and discovering its rich cultural, natural and gastronomic heritage. Travellers can indulge in history, architecture, different types of food and nature.

Healthcare

Poland has a reliable state-funded healthcare system. Generally, doctors in Poland are extremely well trained. Soon after Poland entered the European Union, the private healthcare sector thrived and more private clinics and hospitals were opened.

Poland also has plenty of medical universities and university hospitals: The Medical University of Bialystok, The Medical University of Warsaw, The Medical University of Poznan and many others.

Many tourists visit Poland solely for medical care, with dental care and plastic surgery being the preferred choice. Most patients come from the Scandinavian countries, Germany and Belarus but patients from the United Kingdom and United States are also quite common.

Some of the most important cities in Poland are:

Warsaw – The capital of Poland and a thriving business centre
Gdansk – Formerly known as Danzig
Cracow – The Cultural Capital of Poland
Poznan – It is considered to be the birthplace of the Polish nation

Sights to See

Cracow is the Cultural Capital of Poland. It’s also Poland’s historical capital in the middle ages. The old town of Cracow is filled with monuments, churches and traditional Polish buildings. Cracow is also the home to Europe’s largest medieval market place. Cracow’s old town is an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Bialowieza National Park is an UNESCO World Heritage Site – it’s a huge area of woodland on the border with Belarus.

Malbork Castle is the biggest red brick Gothic castle in Europe. This is also an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Slowinski National Park is the home to the biggest dunes in Europe. It’s also very close to the Baltic Sea so a trip is well worth it.

The Wieliczka Salt Mine is the oldest enterprise in the world and one of the most beautiful places in Poland. The salt mine has been operational since the 13th century and it has its own Church built entirely out of salt. The salt statues built by the miners themselves are also worth seeing.

Liposuction FAQ

?
Is liposuction painful?

Liposuction is not painful, as anaesthesia is administered before the surgery begins. There may be soreness and pain during the recovery period but painkillers can be used to handle it.

?
Can I have liposuction if I’m obese?

Definitely not - liposuction is not a treatment for obesity. Patients need to have a stable weight and be in good health before liposuction surgery.

?
What’s the difference between a tummy tuck and liposuction?

A tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin tissue from the body. Liposuction is used to remove fatty tissue only and scarring is almost unnoticeable.
