Stubborn fat deposits affect both men and women and are “resistant” to almost all diets. In women the deposits are concentrated mostly on the thighs (the so-called “saddlebags”, or coulotte de cheval), while men are affected on the abdomen (love handles).
The purpose of liposuction is to remove this excess fat. The proportions of the treated area are remodelled with long-lasting results, and the body returns to its ideal shape. A small tube is inserted under the skin through a tiny incision. This tube is connected to a pump which removes the excess fat. It is also possible to treat delicate areas such as calves and ankles by using special fine tubes.
Sometimes after multiple pregnancies or fast and consistent weight loss, the abdominal muscles grow weak and the skin tends to sag, giving rise to stretch marks.
If it is a minor problem, it can be solved by a targeted liposuction. On the other hand, if there is a copious amount of excess fat and skin tissue, then one can consider an abdominoplasty.
The purpose of this treatment is to tighten both the abdominal muscles and skin by removing excess skin and fat.
The desire to have smooth and firm thighs is often compromised by the presence of fat deposits, cellulite and lax muscles caused by significant weight loss and / or ageing.
In most cases the problem can be resolved using liposuction. However, if the skin and the subcutaneous tissues have lost some of their elasticity, the plastic surgeon will probably opt for a thigh or buttock lift.
The skin on the inside of the thighs is more prone to sagging because it has fewer elastic fibres.
The purpose of the thigh and/or buttock lift is to remove excess skin and underlying fat in the inner thigh area, making the treated area appear firmer and more toned.
Ageing brings about a loss of elasticity in the skin and an increasing accumulation of fat.
In most cases, liposuction is used to reshape arms by removing stubborn fat, but this technique is only suitable if the skin is relatively elastic.
If the problem is a pronounced sagging of the skin, an arm lift is recommended. In this case, an incision is made on the inner part of the arm between the elbow and the armpit to remove the excess skin. Both of these operations have long-lasting and satisfying results: the arms are once again toned and shapely.
Hyperhidrosis is a relatively common complaint which is caused by overactive sweat glands.

It can happen that you get a tattoo and then, for any number of reasons, you don’t want it anymore. What to do?
The surgical removal of tattoos consists in a procedure carried out under local anaesthetic during which the skin covered by the tattoo is completely removed. The number of sessions required depends on the size and position of the tattoo.
The surgical removal of tattoos is very effective. It does not require a lot of time and it is to all effects radical and complete.
The tattoo will no longer be visible. The disadvantage of this procedure is that it always leaves a scar.
In today’s society, external appearance plays a very important role. First impressions count, as studies have extensively shown.
