Not so long ago, people considered a rounded female body a symbol of sexuality. Today’s ideal of beauty is a youthful, thin shape, while the natural, rounded feminine parts might be viewed as flaws and imperfections in the overall appearance.
The superficial layer of fatty tissue can be slightly thinned by various cosmetic and physical treatments (massages, physical training, etc.). However, layers of real fat tissue in form of hard fatty pads cannot be removed this way. The only solution to this problem is liposuction. This procedure is used to permanently remove the cellulite – fatty cells and their deposits, from certain areas of the body.
Larger clusters of subcutaneous fatty tissue – cellulite – with its orange peel appearance deteriorate the appearance of the skin. The cellulite usually accumulates in the areas of chin, upper arm, waist line, lower part of the abdomen, thighs, and inside area of the knees.
The distribution of fat tissue on our body is determined by two factors: hereditary (genetic factor) and our diet (nutritional factor). GENETIC FACTOR determines the location and number of fatty cells that will develop during puberty. After puberty the number and distribution of cells are finalized. The size of the cells is determined by the NUTRITIONAL FACTOR. Fat people have large and swollen cells while slim people have smaller ones. If a person has a lot of fat cells on his / her thighs and a less on his/ her breasts, then that person is always going to have fat thighs. We can often see slim women with fat pads on certain areas of their body. The removal of cellulite by liposuction is particularly successful on people who are not too fat.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure by which cellulite is selectively removed from the parts of the body where it has accumulated. A narrow tube (cannula) is inserted into a small incision in the skin (0.5cm) and used to remove the fatty layer by vacuum. This way, fatty cells are permanently removed from the area. HYDROLIPOSUCTION is a method of liposuction that is considered to be the most successful and efficient. It comprises the injection of a pH saline containing capillary contraction agents into the operation area. This enables the extraction of a larger amount of pure cellulite and less suction of blood.
Very often, men and women are looking for liposuction to remove the double chin or ‘love handles’ or the fatty tissue from the abdomen and waist line.
The most popular areas that are treated with liposuction among women are the inner and outer sides of the thighs and knees.
Besides the efficient volume and fatty tissue reduction from the problematic areas, liposuction can be used for body shaping. This procedure comprises micro instruments which enable the precise body contouring. Therefore, applying this method and using fine cannulae and very precise technique, we can reshape even straight, column-like legs in the lower part (above the ankle), which was inconceivable before.
Dr Toncic has been regularly and successfully performing liposuction for 15 years now, and based on his experience, he says it is a very efficient body shaping method.
Beside his experience, Dr Tonic’s artistic sense of shaping is highly influential for the liposuction procedure. Thanks to these qualities, the percentage of satisfied liposuction patients is exceptionally high.
Also, we put a lot of emphasis on removing the fatty tissue evenly, to prevent possible uneven spots and holes, which we have seen in patients treated in some other clinics.
