Depending on your body shape and type, it’s sometimes simply not possible to get rid of excess fat through a healthy diet and exercise. The typical problem areas include the buttocks or upper thighs for women, or the stomach area for men. Liposuction can target these fat deposits and shape your figure in accordance with your wishes.

We work with so-called water-jet assisted liposuction. This allows for particularly gentle and painless liposuction. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the liposuction process. A preliminary discussion about the exact procedure and your needs and expectations is very important to us.

Depending on your needs, the procedure will take place using local anaesthetic or under sedation. As this is an outpatient procedure, you can return home the same day.



Would you like to get rid of certain fat deposits on your stomach, legs or buttocks? Certain fat deposits cannot be removed even with a consistent, healthy diet and exercise. Liposuction makes it possible to shape the body silhouette precisely. Individual problem areas such as the abdomen, flanks, buttocks and hips (saddlebags) can be targeted. During the operation, certain areas of the body can be defined accordingly and muscle groups (six pack) can be emphasized. At artis, we offer you the gentle "WAL" (water-jet assisted liposuction).

Questions and answers

Over the years, there have been many new developments and innovations in the field of liposuction. Essentially, however, a distinction is still made between a classic, pure suction technique or a technique with an assisted procedure (with a water jet, with vibration, with ultrasound). In addition, liposuction is supplemented and combined with so-called thermal procedures in order to achieve an additional sculpting and tightening effect. At artis Aesthetics Centre we work either with the BodyJet (water-jet assisted) or with the MicroAire (vibration assisted) and combine liposuction with the Bodytite system (radio frequency).
General side effects such as tenderness to touch, swelling, hardening and bruising are normal and subside completely within days and weeks. It is important for the healing process that you wear the compression garment consistently day and night for 6 weeks. The pain after the operation is highly dependent on the area operated on. Our experience shows that liposuction on the legs is usually more painful than on the arms or abdomen. Dents and unevenness can occur, which can be corrected in a follow-up procedure. Depending on the amount of fat removed by liposuction, the circulation may be impaired after the operation. In rare cases, blood transfusions may be necessary. Another very rare complication can be the occurrence of a pulmonary embolism. Injury to large blood vessels, muscles or internal organs is also an extremely rare complication.
The costs depend on the choice of procedure and the size of the regions and areas. We work with reputable Swiss financing companies that can offer you payment in installments.
Your ability to socialize depends primarily on your overall sensation of pain. If the liposuction was not performed on your face, it will not be visible to third parties that you have undergone the procedure.
Showering is permitted immediately after the operation.
The small skin incisions (max. 2-4 mm) usually heal well. Disturbing scars can be corrected under local anesthesia after complete healing if necessary.
As a rule, you can resume your usual tanning bed and sunbathing routine after 4-6 weeks. We recommend that you protect the scars from the sun.
All areas of the body from which unwanted fat is to be removed are suitable for liposuction. Typically these are legs, hips, stomach, arms, chin, etc.
There are minimally invasive alternatives such as cryotherapy or the "fat pathway injection". We do not offer these procedures at artis.
During the first few days, there may still be a lot of fluid coming out of the incisions. You will also suffer from significant swelling and more or less extensive bruising for the first 10-14 days. The pain is similar to severe muscle soreness. During this time, we will help you with standard painkillers. We also offer you regular lymphatic drainage to help remove the fluid and reduce the swelling. After the swelling has subsided, there may be significant hardening, which is also a normal process and subsides after a few weeks. The skin may initially appear wrinkled and uneven in the treated areas. The final result of liposuction is usually achieved after 9 - 12 months.
The expected result depends on many factors. These include: Skin quality, dents and unevenness before the procedure, the amount of fat to be removed, etc. During a consultation, we can show you individually what result you can expect.
Liposuction can be particularly useful in areas where you cannot get rid of unwanted fat with diet and exercise. This will help you to achieve a better body image and improve your self-confidence. For example, if you have avoided showing your belly in a bikini, sculpting the abdomen can help you to enjoy wearing a bikini or swimming trunks again.
The recommendation of a healthy lifestyle is not only aimed at patients who have undergone liposuction. Weight gain is also possible after liposuction, although fat cells are not formed again once they have been removed.
The field of liposuction requires a great deal of expertise and experience. Make sure that the surgeon treating you is a proven specialist in this field. Ask him critical questions and let him show you the results. It makes sense to seek advice from several clinics before making the final choice. Costs should not be the main consideration when choosing a clinic. Liposuction is a complex operation with high fixed costs that have their price.
It is important that you communicate your wishes and expectations during the consultation. The experienced surgeon will show you exactly what is possible. It is also quite conceivable that other measures such as weight reduction will be discussed initially before surgery is performed. Inform your doctor about possible illnesses, allergies and medication so that an overall picture of your health is possible.
In principle, liposuction can be performed under local anesthesia. However, our experience shows that this only makes sense for small areas. For larger liposuctions, we generally recommend general anesthesia. Nowadays, general anesthesia can be precisely controlled and is very safe. Regardless of the type of anesthesia, the procedure is performed on an outpatient basis.
