Process for your Liposculpture

First information consultation
After having expressed the purpose of your visit, try to determine as accurately as possible your problem. The doctor will then explains in detail, the technique, its indications, cons-indications, surgical procedure, possible side effects and results. Photographic examples of similar cases will be shown so that you have a good appreciation of what can be achieved. Everything is explained again in the informed consent that will be given to you at the end of the consultation. You will have the opportunity to read it at home. Any additional information should be requested from Dr. Houyoux prior to the decision. After a detailed interview on your personal and family medical history, a general clinical examination is conducted and you decide with the doctor, the areas you want to be treated. A cost estimation for the procedure is then established. Pictures might eventually be taken during this consultation, if not they will be on the day of the surgery. You will get a copy of those pictures after the last check-up consultation.

Reflection period
A reflection period of fifteen days is always advisable before the decision. There is no hurry in cosmetic surgery. Visit one or more of my colleagues if you wish. Trust is essential to the good relationship “Patient – Doctor.” Don’t hesitate to contact me per phone if you need any additional information. The information must be optimal. This is necessary in order to obtain your informed consent that you will have to sign before surgery.

Once the decision is made, contact us in order to set a date for your procedure. We ask, in order to confirm your reservation, that you make a down payment of half the cost of the procedure. The remaining amount of the intervention will be paid the day of the surgery. We apologize for these few material information, but some bitter experiences have led us to be cautious!

Preoperative consultation
It must be done a few days before the procedure so we have all the results before surgery. We can request a preoperative blood test, sometimes an electrocardiogram. This can be done at your regular doctor or in our premises. During this consultation you will be prescribed antibiotics or other medication if needed.

Preoperative recommendations
8 days before surgery, stop taking any derivatives of acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin, Aspro, Aspegic, Sedergin,…) This reduces blood coagulation and can increase bleeding or hematoma formation. If you tend to be easily bruised, the doctor may prescribe a preventive treatment that you can take a few days before surgery (Arnica or something similar). The day before the surgery, the day of the surgery day and the next day, take your antibiotic. As procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and light sedation, it is not compulsory to be on an empty stomach. But it is always recommended, given the likelihood of nausea provoked by the products used for conscious sedation. It is essential that someone drive you the day of the surgery, because of insurance reasons. Do not drive a vehicle during the 12 hours after following the operation. And again, don’t forget your antibiotic.

Postoperative recommendations In case of pain, take paracetamol (Efferalgan, Panadol, …) 500-1000 mg 4/day. In case of problems, do not hesitate to contact the doctor, only he can usefully advise you. Dr. Houyoux: +41 79 870 63 70 Redo bandages the day after surgery. This will be done by a nurse in our premises. Indeed, during the first hours after surgery, the infiltration liquid, slightly stained with blood, will continue to leak through the incision points. This is perfectly normal and different from a haemorrhage.

Check-up consultation
8 days after surgery. We will adjust the diet and the support girdle is removed. 1 month after surgery. 6 months after surgery. Postoperative pictures are taken. Whenever the patient deems necessary.

Be Careful!
Avoid the sun, and other treatments on treated areas until the doctor’s green light.
