Why do we do liposuction?

Certain areas of the body (such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, arms and back) need to reshape their fatty areas, and diet and exercise are usually recommended. But sometimes these areas do not respond adequately. Here comes the role of liposuction to reshape these areas.

Although the results of liposuction are long-term, it is not considered in any way to lose weight.

There are also medical conditions that require liposuction treatment:

• Benign fatty tumors (lipomas).

• Abnormal enlargement of the breasts in males (gynecomastia).

• Problems with the metabolism of fats in the body (lipodystrophy).

• Excessive sweating in the armpit area (axillary hyperhidrosis).

Liposuction aims to get rid of unwanted fat from specific areas of the body, using fine tubes with sharp tips, which are inserted through small surgical incisions in the skin. With an electric suction attached to it, the fat is suctioned while the doctor moves the tubes under the skin, to break up the fatty deposits.


Who needs liposuction?

The need for liposuction is limited to healthy, stable weight patients who suffer from complex fat that does not respond to a healthy diet or exercise.

Therefore, this process is not suitable for those who want to lose weight


What techniques are used for liposuction?

At Nova, we use the safest, most comfortable and least painful method for the patient. Ultrasound technology (VASER) is one of the techniques mainly used by us, and it is the latest technology in this field.

This technique uses ultrasound to break up fat and facilitate its removal, and is known to be completely safe, with minimal side effects after the operation..


How is liposuction performed?

• Usually at Nova we perform the operation under general anesthesia. An epidural anesthetic can be used for liposuction in the lower parts of the body.

• After the Nova surgeon determines the areas in which the fat must be removed, he proceeds to the following procedures:

• Injecting the treated area with a solution containing anesthetic and medications, to reduce bruising, blood loss and swelling.

• The breakdown of fat cells in the treated area with high-frequency vibrations, to facilitate pulling them out.

• Making a small incision to insert the suction tube connected to the vacuum machine, to start the fat removal process.

• Moving the suction tube reciprocatingly, to loosen the fat and suck it out of the body.

• Suture and bandage the treated area until it recovers.

The operation at Nova usually takes one to three hours. Most people need to stay in the hospital overnight, on the day of the operation.

What happens during recovery?

After the procedure is completed, the patient wears an elastic supportive corset or compression bandages to reduce swelling and bruising, while continuing to wear it until complete recovery.

Antibiotics and painkillers are prescribed by the attending physician, to prevent infections and any pain or swelling.

The recovery period usually takes two to three weeks, after the procedure.

Butt augmentation (Brazilian butt lift)

Buttock augmentation provides women with an attractive proportional shape that gives them self-confidence and the ability to wear the clothes they like.

It is a surgical cosmetic procedure that increases the size of the buttocks, using fat transfer technology or butt implants. It includes reshaping, tightening and transfer of fat to the buttock area.


What is the purpose of buttock augmentation?

• Increased fullness and roundness of the buttocks.

• Improving the balance and coordination of the buttocks with the body.

• Correcting the effects of weight loss or aging that lead to sagging in the buttocks.

* Improving the appearance of the women and enhancing their self-confidence.


Who needs a butt augmentation?

1 . Someone who has an unbalanced body, with a very small butt.

2 . Who suffers from a flabby or flat back due to aging or weight loss.

3 . Women who are not satisfied with their small or flabby buttocks, despite their efforts to exercise rigorous exercises, to improve their shape and size.

4 . Who does not want to exercise, and is looking for an easier and faster way to get a consistent butt.

The operation, in general, is suitable for those who enjoy good general health and follow a healthy lifestyle.

What are the ways to perform a butt augmentation operation?

At Nova, we use the two most common buttock augmentation techniques:

• Brazilian butt lift technique that relies on fat transfer using autologous adipose tissue

• Implant technology that mainly uses silicone implants

Brazilian butt lift (fat transfer to the buttocks)

This method relies on transferring fat by suctioning it from one area of ​​the body to be used to improve the shape of the buttocks. It is an ideal treatment to enhance the appearance of a saggy butt after losing weight.

How is the Brazilian butt lift operation performed?

• The doctor removes fatty tissue from one of the areas of the body that suffers from excess fat, (such as the abdomen, hips, back or thighs) by suctioning it through suction tubes (cannula).

• After that, the fat is processed and prepared for the transfer process, and then it is re-injected into the buttocks.

• The surgeon usually needs to make three small incisions to inject the fat, which disappears (by 90%) after the recovery period.

• The doctor then transfers the fat through the incisions, and moves the cannula in a frequency manner to ensure a consistent distribution of fat and to obtain optimal results.

• The liposuction incisions are closed with threads. The patient then needs to wear a (compression gown) after surgery.


Butt lift with silicone implants

Silicone implants are suitable for people with flat or saggy buttocks. It is used to redefine the buttocks and give it extra volume


How is the butt lift with silicone implants?

• The doctor inserts a soft silicone implant, through the incision that is naturally hidden in the folds of the bottom of the gluteus maximus muscle, and above the pelvic bone.

• The incisions are closed with stitches, so that the patient wears a (compressive gown) after the operation.

Autologous fat injection (fat injection)

The concept of autologous fat injection is based on the use of a natural source to reshape and sculpt the area to be improved.

 Where fat is transferred from specific areas of the body (such as the abdomen or buttocks) and then injected into other areas such as the breast, using VASER or Micro Lipo technology in this area.

This technique is considered one of the procedures of the body sculpting process and is also used in the liposuction process.

The doctor’s skills and experience, in addition to the patient’s commitment to a healthy lifestyle, contribute to the success and continuity of the results of this procedure

At Nova, when injecting fat, we take into account what suits the patients’ desires, with our permanent recommendation for them to consult the specialists in our clinics and communicate with us to choose the best treatment.

What are the cases of using autologous fat injection?

Facial fat transfer:

A natural cosmetic procedure for women or men, who have wrinkles and suffer from a loss of facial fat due to aging, or due to significant weight loss. The results of the operation are long-term.

Transfer of fat to ​​the hands:

It is applied to men and women with thin or flabby hands.

Fat transfer to the buttocks:

Autologous fat transfer technology is used, in cases of drooping buttocks due to aging or weight loss, by performing a Brazilian butt lift, instead of silicone implants. This method is the most appropriate solution to this problem. This is done by transferring fat to the buttock area to reshape it, and improve the appearance of the lower area of ​​the body.

Transfer of fat to the breast:

Fat injection is the natural option for breast augmentation instead of breast implants, due to its use of body fat itself. It is effectively applied to improve the shape of the breast or tighten it, to restore its harmony and roundness in women who desire to obtain a natural shape and size. This is done by removing the fat from the place of the patient’s choice in the body (such as the abdomen or inner thigh) to be transferred to the breast.

What happens after the operation?

  • • Since the operation is performed using a local anesthetic, you do not need to stay in the hospital all day. The expected recovery time depends on the patient’s general health and normal lifestyle, and is estimated from 3 to 14 days. And
  • within 4 to 7 days, you can return Back to daily activities. Preliminary results are visible immediately after the operation
  • But the expected final results require a period of 4 to 8 weeks.

Tummy tuck

A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that aims to tighten the stomach and remove the excess skin and fat surrounding it, to improve the appearance and consistency of the abdomen after childbirth, or in case of significant weight loss, or in cases of loose skin around the stomach due to aging.

Tummy tuck surgery cannot be considered a substitute for exercise or a healthy diet. It is also not a weight loss solution. Rather, it is a way to improve the appearance and texture of the abdomen.


Tummy Tuck Procedure:

The surgery is performed under local anesthesia, and your NOVAA doctor will remove a section of skin and fat from the belly button or higher -down to the pubic regions-. Up to 30-50% of the stomach skin is usually removed, including the existed stretch marks. Your surgeon will pull down the remaining skin to cover the entire belly, which makes the stomach much flatter and tighter. Then he will reposition the belly button if it is needed to give a more natural and well-proportioned look.


There are two types of the Tummy Tuck operation in NOVA:

  • Full Tummy Tuck: It addresses the entire abdomen, above and below the belly button.
  • Mini Tummy Tuck: It uses a shorter incision to treat only the fatty area below the belly button, for people with little excess fat.

A tummy tuck may also be one part of a mommy makeover procedure after childbirth or a part of a body contouring procedure.

Tummy Tuck Candidates

Men and women who are physically healthy and at a stable weight, with excess fat that does not respond to diet or exercise in the tummy area, or/ and loose or droopy skin around the stomach.
Also, people who suffer from stretch marks on the tummy can be good candidates for a tummy tuck operation as the stretch marks cannot be removed through exercise or any other way.
