The Abdominoplasty procedure alone or combined to Liposuction can treat those problems and improve the appearance of the belly.

Procedure:  The Plastic Surgeon makes an incision in the lower part of the abdomen, above the pubis zone so that the scar can be hidden by the underwear & the bikini.  The abdominal skin is separated from the abdominal wall & lifted upwards to the rib cage. The excess of fat & skin is then removed. Then, the Plastic Surgeon stretches & sutures in the middle the abdominal muscles. After that, the intact belly button is then fixed in a new position that fits with the general abdomen harmony.

Liposuction

 

Many parts of the body of women & men have excess fat tissues that give an unaesthetic appearance to their body.cretan health Liposuction

 

The Plastic Surgery technique known as Liposuction removes this excess of fat for example from: double chin, thighs, buttocks, love handles, etc. and gives to the body a Sculpted appearance. The liposuction treatment can be combined with other procedures like the tummy tuck. The liposuction procedure is not a weight loss treatment. The weight loss treatment belongs to another surgical specialty: BARIATRICS. Cretan Health offers also this service.

 

Procedure: Not all persons can undergo a Liposuction procedure. First, they have to be in good health. After your demand, the plastic Surgeon collaborating with Cretan Health will decide if you can be a candidate for a Liposuction treatment or not.   

 

The new techniques (tumescent) employed by the Plastic Surgeons with whom we collaborate allow excellent results in comparison with the common techniques.

 

The plastic Surgeon inserts from a very small incision (2<X<4mm) a very fine tube of 2mm of diameter which is connected to a medical device that aspires the fat.

 

Before that and in the areas where Liposuction will be applied, he has injected a mixed solution of local anesthetic & adrenaline. With the new technique, applied by our Surgeons, the % of blood in the removed fat is only 1% compared to the 30% of the old technique. After the procedure, you will wear a compression garment (s) for a week. Swelling & bruises are minimal.    

 

Duration: from half an hour to 3 hours.

 

Anesthesia: Local with sedative.

 

Stay at the Clinic: Departure after 2 hours.

 

Recovery: For small & medium liposuction treatments, 1 to 3 days. For large treatments, the Surgeons diagnosis will determine the time-frame. Complications are minimal. 

 

Final results will be noticeable within 2 months.
