Before after photos liposuction

The photos below show patients before and after liposuction. The after pictures are usually taken from the third to sixth month after the operation. Before this time, the result is difficult to assess as the entire tissue is still significantly swollen due to the operation. Although the swelling decreases from the day of the operation, patients need to be patient.

Form your own opinion based on these results

For all operations, photos are taken for documentation purposes during the consultation. On the one hand, this serves to plan the operation and, on the other, for comparison. Aesthetic operations often involve procedures that change the shape of the body. In the case of liposuction, the change is only slightly visible immediately after the procedure. Patients go through an emotional time here. Initially, there is often some doubt about the purpose and success of the operation, which is often accompanied by a degree of uncertainty. With liposuction in particular, patients are concerned with reducing the volume of fat. Due to the initial swelling and possible hematoma formation (bruising), the result does not yet correspond to expectations and may even appear somewhat unnatural. As soon as the initial swelling subsides and the hematomas fade, the result can be seen more clearly. This happens in the 3-4 week after the operation. Patients describe this phase as “relief”. As the goal is foreseeable, the start, i.e. the original state before the operation, is often forgotten.

What you can expect after liposuction

Patients who opt for liposuction want a reduction in volume or fatty tissue. Of course, the end result plays the biggest role here. But how exactly will you look in the time leading up to the final result? In the long term, this naturally plays a somewhat subordinate role, but it is important for me to inform you about it.

In the photos selected above, you can see the results approximately 3-6 months after liposuction. It is clearly visible here that the liposuctioned areas have lost volume but have retained their natural shape. It is also necessary to harmonize the surrounding areas so that the transition between the individual areas does not appear too harsh. The photos show a small selection of patients with different anatomical starting positions. Of course, every anatomy is unique, but you may find yourself in one or other of the pictures.

But what will you look like shortly after the operation? Immediately after the operation, the suctioned areas will be swollen and hematoma-colored.The puncture site will be marked with small punctiform scars of 3 mm in size.These fade over time and are no longer visible after a few months.Immediately after the operation, you will wear a compression garment. This underwear will significantly reduce the swelling within the first 3-4 weeks after the operation.We also recommend the use of lipomassage or lymphatic drainage with appropriate painkillers.

Once the last swelling has subsided approx. 3-4 months after the operation, the real “joy” about the result of the operation begins. However, this joy is then permanent and is reinforced by the direct comparison of the “before” pictures.
