Liposuction and lipofilling in Armenia

During the liposuction surgery the excess fat deposits are removed through small punctures on the skin, and lipofiing is an operation in which one’s own fat, obtained through liposuction and undergoing special processing, is injected into areas of the face and body that need additional volume.

Liposuction and lipofilling can be performed on one or several areas of the body (abdomen, buttocks, thighs, forearms, chin, etc.). Depending on the volume and size of the areas of fat deposits, this operation can cost the patient quite a large amount. The price-quality ratio of surgical liposuction and lipofilling in Armenian clinics will pleasantly surprise even the most demanding patients.

Who is suitable for liposuction?

People who have stubborn body fat which they have not been able to lose as the result of a healthy lifestyle, including exercise and healthy eating. It is a common misconception that liposuction is a procedure for those who are obese and have a large amount of weight to be removed. Instead, these patients are often deemed unsuitable. Having too much body fat removed will leave patients with lots of excess, loose skin, which will require a tummy tuck to fix.

To have liposuction, you will need to be:

  • At least 18 years or older
  • Have a body mass index (BMI) of under 30
  • Be physically and mentally healthy
  • Have reasonable expectations about what the liposuction procedure can achieve

What are the different types of liposuction carried out at Centre for Surgery?

There are several different types of liposuction available at Centre for Surgery including:

Traditional liposuction

This is the original method of liposuction developed over 30 years ago. Unlike newer methods of liposuction, traditional liposuction involves administering a general anaesthetic, so the patient is asleep throughout the procedure. The surgeon will make an incision and use cannulas which are moved back and forth to remove the body fat. Vacuum suction helps to extract fat cells. The incisions will be closed with dissolvable stitches, and drainage tubes may be used to prevent fluid build-up. Traditional types of liposuction do not involve potential risks that are often encountered with laser liposuction or Vaser liposuction.

Tumescent liposuction

Tumescent liposuction is a highly effective type of liposuction which can be carried out under local anaesthetic for the treatment of small body areas. The procedure first involves injecting a diluted anaesthetic solution into the skin, which makes the area numb and swollen, and is known as tumescent anaesthesia. Pre-injecting the fat with tumescent solution makes it easier to remove the body fat, and will result in less bleeding and bruising. Surgeons are then able to make incisions into the target areas of fat and use small diameter cannulas which to remove the unwanted body fat.  This is the method which is used at Centre for Surgery for MicroLipo. It is the preferred method as you can avoid symptoms such as excessive bruising and swelling. It also does not involve the use of heat, lowering the risk of skin burns to your body. Finally, there is a lowered risk of skin complications including asymmetry, rippling, and wavy skin

Power-assisted liposuction (PAL)

Power-assisted liposuction or PAL lipo uses a powered cannula that vibrates rapidly – about 5,000 times per minute. This helps to loosen and break up the fat cells prior to extraction with vacuum suction. PAL lipo is considered to be a gentler method than traditional liposuction. As with all types of types of liposuction, PAL involve involves the use of tumescent anaesthesia to improve patient comfort and reduce bruising and swelling. This means liposuction recovery is much quicker following power-assisted liposuction. PAL lipo can also help to remove body fat from more difficult areas such as the back and flanks. PAL Lipo is an excellent technique for male breast reduction and removal of gynaecomastia.


What is lipofilling and how is lipofilling done?

Lipofilling, also known as lipomodellingfat transfer or lipotransfer, is a cosmetic surgery procedure for body remodelling. The purpose of this treatment is to increase the volume of an area or to correct a contour deficit. This is achieved through the suction of an amount of fat from an area in which it is naturally present in greater amounts, and the transplant of that fat in the area to correct.

The fat is removed from the deeper fatty layers, of either your abdomen, buttocks, inner thighs or hips, using a special needle and syringe. This part of the procedure is called liposuction. The removed fat cells are then separated from the body fluid using a special equipment tool, called a centrifuge.

The fat cells are then injected into the contour deficit. This procedure may need to be repeated several times depending on the amount of fat required to complete the procedure.
