Body Contouring

Although Cosmetic Surgery cannot change your life per se, more self-esteem and a better feeling within yourself can encourage you to finally make long thought changes or to continue your daily life, but now with a content smile when looking into the mirror, buying a bra, a well-fitted dress, or a new pair of jeans.


Body-Contouring Surgery, as its name suggests, involves all operations designed to improve the shape and tone of the body.

It can be defined as follows:

What to do in which situation?

In certain situations a combination of fat removal and tightening procedure is necessary to achieve a satisfying result. During the consultation I shall offer you the best treatment plan for your individual situation.The operation takes about 1 to 2 hours.

Some advice:

All opations are performed under general anaesthesia. However, lipoplasty can also be performed under local anaesthesia with sedation. Most procedures take about 1to 2 hours, but extensive abdominoplasties and lipoplasties or multiple procedures take longer.
Lipoplasty is usually performed as a day case. More extensive lipoplasties, arm-, buttock- or thigh lifts involve a one or two night stay in the hospital. If your work is not physical (no lifting or sports), expect to return to work after 10 to 14 days. Normal physical exercises can be started after 4 to 6 weeks.

After the operation you might feel bruised and sore. The treated area is likely to be swollen more or less and you will feel tight in this area. Sutures will be removed after 10 to14 days. For 2-4 weeks day/night you have to wear a specific garment and avoid heavy lifting and sports. Best is to sleep on your back during the first weeks.

As with all scars, the scars will fade over a period of time. In most cases, the scar heals as very faint white line. However, please, note: No surgical scar ever flawlessly disappears.

Regarding possible risks and complications cosmetic surgery is very safe. However, everybody has to accept that no surgical procedure is entirely free from risk. These possible, but rare risks will be explained to you during the consultation and I shall answer all your questions.
