Wasserstrahl Assistierte Liposuktion zur Therapie des Lipödems

Journal für Ästhetische Chirurgie, 10(2), 71-78

DOI 10.1007/s12631-017-0083-6

A lipoedema is a chronic disease with subcutaneous adipose tissue growth in the legs, resulting in pain, edema and a tendency towards hematoma. The water-jet-assisted liposuction (WAL) is becoming increasingly important for the surgical treatment of this condition.

Compared to the TL, the liposuction of the lipoedema ensures positive and lasting results when the surgical technique focuses on the protection of the lymphatics. The WAL offers the advantage that the adipocytes are removed selectively and with maximum protection of the vessels. The anesthesia solution is applied selectively in the area to be aspirated, which results in an optimal analgesia and vasoconstriction. Additionally, there are fewer swellings and the liposuction can be assessed more precisely intraoperatively. Very often can impressive results be achieved through the WAL in regards to a reduction of pain and edema tendency,  an improvement of the body contour and an increase in the quality of life.

My philosophy

What is important to me in my work?

I must be able to make the patient “feel good” and be certain that he/she can trust me and my team. The patient must be informed in terms of his wishes, so that he understands the treatment, the progress, the results and the treatment alternatives.

With cosmetic procedures, it is important to me  that in the initial consultation I learn why the patient wants the procedures and what results he or she expects.

With operations, it is important to me to provide individual care and the standard course of procedures in the most calm and relaxed atmosphere possible.  If questions or problems arise after the operation, I am available for the patients.
