Surgery info

Your surgery will take place in a a sterilized operating room of a private clinic. The procedure will be performed under general anaesthetics (Katowice clinic) or under sedation (IV anaesthetics, Warsaw Józefów clinic) by a fully qualified and experienced surgeon with and assistance of a certified anaesthetist and nurses. The procedure starts with filling the operated area with special tumescent saline solutions. Its task is to numb the area and make the blood vessels smaller, in order to reduce the blood loss and bruising after the surgery. Moreover, it makes the process of breaking up the fat with the use of Vaser Hi Def ultrasound energy much easier. Next, a small probe is used to transmit the ultrasound energy, which liquefies fat without inflicting any damage to the surrounding tissues (including blood vessels, nerves etc.). The final step includes gentle suction process, which helps to safely remove the fat from the area of the surgery. After surgery the patient stays in a post-operative recovery room and is provided with medication (painkillers, antibiotics, antithrombotics) as well as necessary compression garment.
