Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, is a highly effective procedure aimed at permanently removing localised deposits of fat through small, minimally invasive incisions. The primary goal of liposuction is to achieve a slimmer contour by eliminating stubborn fat cells. While it is important to note that liposuction is not a solution for excess skin, it can significantly improve areas with persistent fat deposits.

To ensure your comfort and safety during the liposuction procedure, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert typically uses a combination of local anesthesia and sedation. Local anesthesia is administered to numb the specific treatment area, while sedation helps you remain relaxed and calm throughout the procedure. Dr. Rotsaert will discuss the anesthesia options with you during your consultation and address any concerns you may have.
The duration of a liposuction procedure varies depending on several factors, including the extent of the treatment area and the amount of fat being removed. On average, liposuction can take anywhere from one to three hours. Dr. Rotsaert takes great care and precision to ensure the best possible outcome, dedicating ample time to each patient’s procedure.
Following your liposuction procedure, you can expect to see a noticeable improvement in the treated areas. The results of liposuction are long-lasting, as the fat cells removed during the procedure do not return. However, it is essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet to preserve your results and prevent the accumulation of new fat deposits.
Dr. Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with comprehensive post-operative instructions to ensure optimal healing and recovery. She will guide you through the aftercare process, which may include wearing compression garments, taking prescribed medications, and attending follow-up appointments.
Recovery times can vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the liposuction procedure and individual healing rates. Generally, most individuals can expect to resume their normal activities within a week or two after liposuction. However, it is essential to listen to your body and follow Dr. Rotsaert’s post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth and safe recovery.
During the liposuction procedure, Dr. Rotsaert makes small incisions, typically ranging from a few millimetres to a centimetre in length. These incisions are strategically placed in inconspicuous locations, taking into account your unique anatomy and the targeted treatment areas. By placing the incisions discreetly, Dr. Rotsaert aims to minimise the visibility of any resulting scars.
Furthermore, Dr. Rotsaert utilises advanced surgical techniques and precise surgical instruments to ensure the smallest incisions necessary to achieve the desired results. With her exceptional attention to detail, she strives to leave you with minimal scarring, allowing you to feel confident and comfortable in your newly contoured body.

Yes, following liposuction surgery, it is typically recommended to wear a compression garment.
