How does the operation proceed?

First I explain the exact course of the operation again and answer any outstanding questions.  After monitoring the important blood values, the areas for the liposuction and the fat enhancement are marked. After that, photos are taken and then once you are lying down, the skin is disinfected and you are covered with sterile towels. The procedure takes place using tranquilizing drugs (Dormicum tablets or venal injection).

The anesthetic fluid is injected into the areas for liposuction using an infiltration cannula. Then, the simultaneous flushing and suctioning of the fat cells take place. Because of the weak suction and the thin cannula this stage takes longer than with normal liposuction. As soon as there is enough fat in the collection vessel, as a next step the breast area is de-sensitized. The fat is now carefully filled into a 10ml syringe and is distributed evenly and carefully in thin layers into the breast, using a fine, blunt cannula with several lateral holes. Approximately 2/3 is injected into the subcutaneous fat layer and 1/3 is injected into the muscle. No fat is transferred into the glands themselves, as this is virtually impossible because of the tough tissue in this area. This also ensures that subsequent breast examinations can take place without restriction. (0)32 636 25 25
