Sport and a healthy diet should make fat deposits disappear or prevent them from forming in the first place. But the body does not always break down fat with the desired reliability. The result is small fat pads, for example on the stomach, which are a thorn in the side of those affected. In addition to these ailments of aesthetic origin, there is a disease calledlipoedemais called. It is a fat distribution disorder that is particularly noticeable in the legs, buttocks and arms. Diets and exercise usually do not help here. A reliable way to get rid of excess fat is liposuction. As part of the plastic surgery at the Noah Clinic in Kassel, a specialist removes fat cells from the body.

When is liposuction useful?
We carry out liposuction at the Noah Clinic in Kassel when patients suffer from stubborn fat deposits or suffer from pressure pain and swelling due to lipoedema. In the case of lipoedema in particular, conservative therapies rarely bring lasting pain relief.
The following body regions are suitable for the most gentle liposuction possible:
- The neck
- sagging cheeks
- arms, forearms
- Thighs, especially panniers
- belly, hips, waist
- as part of a breast reduction
However, patients should keep in mind that liposuction is not suitable for losing excess weight. The goal is simply to emphasize the silhouette of the body by sucking out small pockets of fat.
How does liposuction work? How Much Fat Can Be Suctioned?
First, there is a detailed consultation between the patient and the specialist at the Noah Clinic. The aim is to combine the wishes of the patient and the possibilities of plastic surgery. In the clinic of Prof. Dr. Noah in Kassel we perform liposuction while protecting the surrounding tissue. The treatment depends on the amount of fat cells to be removed.
In general, liposuction can be performed in twilight sleep with local anesthesia, but general anesthesia is recommended for large amounts of fat or special regions. Depending on the area, between three and five liters of pure fatty tissue can be suctioned out.
With tumescence solution against fatty tissue: the tumescence technique
In this procedure, a special solution is introduced into the area to be treated. The fatty tissue collects with the liquid and can then be sucked out through a cannula with a slight negative pressure. Surrounding structures such as veins and nerves are usually not damaged with this method.
Vibration assisted liposuction
With the vibration technique, the fat is practically "shaken". For smaller suction volumes, local anesthesia is sufficient during the operation. For volumes over 1000 ml, however, general anesthesia is advantageous. The fine cannula used vibrates up to 80 times per second and thus ensures that the fat cells can be blown up and then suctioned off.
The water jet technique - water liposuction
This surgical procedure to remove fatty tissue works with a jet of water that is guided through a cannula under the skin. This treatment is also usually carried out under local anesthesia. The water now “washes” the fat cells, mostly without damaging the surrounding tissue. We only use this technique for lipoedema. Also, this method is a great way to remove fatLipofillingit might win
Radio Frequency Liposuction and Tightening
A fourth option is the so-called BodyTite™ method. Here, too, the tumescent solution is applied to the appropriate area. Radio frequency waves now heat tissue both externally through a handpiece and internally. As a result, the existing collagen fibers in the dermis contract: the skin becomes taut. At the same time, the fat cell emulsion and the tumescence solution are sucked through the handpiece. The advantage of this method is that liposuction and subsequentskin tighteningThis can be done in one session. In addition, radiofrequency therapy can also be used independently of liposuction to treat cellulite and wrinkles.
After liposuction: aftercare, pain and healing
After the procedure, there are often bruises and bruises. In addition, the treated area may be tender and swollen. The doctor treating you can prescribe mild painkillers accordingly. After a few weeks, the immediate effects of the procedure wear off.
It is important that the prescribed compression clothing is worn consistently. This is the only way to optimally support the body and skin during healing. The first results are usually visible after about three months, but the final result can take up to six months, in rare cases up to nine months. The patient and the plastic surgeon can then decide together whether to have further surgery to further improve the outcome.
Sport after liposuction
Especially for patients with lipoedema, the question often arises as to when sport can be resumed and which type of sport is initially beneficial for tissue preservation. After liposuction, it is important to find a balance between exercise and rest. For example, it is possible to start running after a week or so, but listen to your body! Three to four weeks after the operation, you can easily incorporate light sports such as gymnastics, yoga or short bike rides into your everyday life. However, jogging, fitness etc. should be avoided. for a maximum of six weeks; Strength training for up to three months. Caution is required, especially in the case of severe physical shock, such as when jogging: the tissue must not be injured in order not to endanger the result of the operation.
What happens to the skin after liposuction?
Many patients fear that the skin in the suction area will sag and thus ruin the treatment result. Normally this is not the case. Because at the Noah Clinic for Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery in Kassel, we always make sure to adjust the suction power to the individual skin condition. It's not just about skin health, it's about the body in general. Because although liposuction only requires small incisions, it is still a major procedure. In most cases, the skin also recedes and the scars are hardly visible after a few months. The skin can also be tightened by radio frequency therapy.
How much does liposuction at the Noah Clinic in Kassel cost?
The price of liposuction always depends on the size of the area to be treated and the technique used. The costs start at around 2000 euros (plus VAT), for larger areas you should expect costs between 3500 and 7000 euros (plus VAT).
