- Liposuction: fat removal for a definite, permanent result.
At the Wellness Kliniek we use the latest techniques to remove excess fat: vibro-liposculpture / vibro-liposuction combined with SWT - tumescent soft jet infiltration method. First the fat is liquified, so that it can be easily and accurately sucked out without damaging any surrounding tissue.
Liposuction - Liposculpture
Modern Vibro - SWT - Soft Jet liposculpture is a safe procedure.
It is the most effective method for permanently removing excess fat.
The permanent removal of excess fatty tissue is the most commonly perfomed aesthetic operation. Liposcultpure is so popular because it's reliable, safe and the recovery period is short.
At the Wellness Kliniek liposculpture is always performed by a doctor in a fully equipped operating theatre with monitoring equipment, skilled nurses and in a controlled sterile environment.
A precise quantity of serum is injected into the area being treated. Local anaesthetic is used and the risk of bleeding is eliminated. The doctor uses a much finer needle to remove the fat using less pressure.
Bruising, if there is any, will disappear within two weeks. The risk of any irregularities is considerably smaller and there is no blood loss. The doctor can work more effectively because without any of the aforementioned risks a greater volume of fat can be removed at once.
Fat can be removed and transplanted in an area which needs more volume.
Sometimes the body shape is not just improved by removing excess fat, but by filling dents or folds of skin. The transplanted fat cells grow into the new area and provide the required extra volume.
A general anaesthetic is best avoided.
Intravenous sedation offers many advantages, you can discuss the degree of sedation in advance with your anaesthetist.
A great deal is possible with just a simple local anaesthetic. The type of anaesthetic depends on your preference and chosen treatment.
Liposuction: Frequently asked questions
- What are the advantages of liposuction?
less bruising, reduced risk of swelling and sensory disorders, reduced risk, less pain, accurate fat removal, permanently removed fat cells, no damage to blood vessels, no scars, quick recovery, smoother skin, permanent result
- Are the results permanent?
Yes. During puberty the body produces fat cells. However in adulthood this production stops. These cells swell due to bad eating habits. Dieting causes the cells to become smaller while liposculpture permanently eliminates fat cells. After liposculpture the body doesn't produce any new fat cells.
- Who is not a suitable candidate?
The procedure is not designed for general weight loss. If you are overweight, you are advised to follow a supervised weight loss programme first.The accumulation of fluid "lymfoedema tarda" is often the cause of puffy legs. If you suffer from this condition, liposculpture has little effect. Fluid accumulation is not affected by liposculpture.
Liposuction - Liposculpture

In young girls who develop breasts early, this method can slow down and reduce the growth of the mammary glands. If this procedure is performed in time then radical breast reduction surgery can be avoided.
F. Breast reduction in men - gynaecomasty - can be treated with liposuction:
Breast reduction in men - liposuction of the breast - is a very popular treatment.
Liposculpture for a flat stomach
If you have an accumulation of fat in the stomach area and the skin is still elastic, then liposculpture is perfect for attaining a flat stomach again.
Sometimes, the muscles of the stomach can become slack. These muscles can be tightened during the same procedure. A small 1-2 cm scar is hidden between the pubic hair and the navel. The surgeon is also able to make the waist narrower in the same way, without leaving a visible scar.
If your skin has lost its elasticity then liposculpture alone may not produce the desired result; a tummy tuck may also be necessary to remove excess skin. The muscles are usually tightened at the same time.
If your distended stomach is caused by internal swelling, certain measures can be taken to solve this problem. This calls for a change in lifestyle and our individual health program at the Wellness Kliniek can help you achieve this.

What do our patients say?
LiposuctionAfter a few referrals from my friends, I knew this was the clinic for me. It took me 2 hours from Kingscross station to Brussels by Eurostar. A direct connection took me to Genk in 1 hour. It was all worth it: I am very happy with the liposculpture of my hips and legs. I can't wait to return. Then maybe I will have my boobies done.
LiposuctionDoctor who performed the treatment: Dr. Paul HanssenI have been to Wellness Kliniek recently for Liposuction. I had an appointment with Dr Hanssen , we were explained about the procedure in details . We were provided a date on the coming week and procedure was started . After few weeks results were visible and very much satisfactory . My self confidence has also been boosted by this . Thank you Wellness Kliniek for helping me . Will recommend them for others as well .
LiposuctionDoctor who performed the treatment: Dr. Paul HanssenI had two consultations with Dr Hanssen for liposuction, firstly for the buttocks and following that, one year later, for the outer thigh and backs of upper legs. It is a very comfortable clinic and the nursing and assistant staff are very friendly and kind. Dr Hanssen is expert and takes time with you to understand what you want. He is very kind during the procedure and that's why I went back to him the second time. I highly recommend him and the Wellness Kliniek. The procedure itself is a little bit uncomfortable and the staff are very receptive and helpful with that. I would go again for anything else I would want in the future. The results were perfect. My problem areas are no longer a problem and clothes fit well. I couldn't be happier. The Wellness Kliniek is incredibly inexpensive for the service it provides, and is worth going to Genk for any procedure you want done. The doctors and the staff are very professional and the environment is clean, comfortable and restful. Genk can seem awkward to get to, but it's not at all.
LiposuctionDoctor who performed the treatment: Dr. Paul HanssenA few weeks ago I had a liposculpture treatment in the Wellness Kliniek with Dr. Hanssen. I had my lovehandles and back rolls treated and I'm so happy that I decided to do this treatment! The result is everything I expected it to be! I will glad though when I can stop wearing that girdle. :) I would definitely recommend this clinic and Dr. Hanssen! Thanks so much!
LiposuctionThis is my second time at the Wellness Kliniek after having a fully tummy tuck and eye bag surgery 18 months ago (May 2012) and recovered well. I returned in May 20213 to have some liposculpture of my abdomen to have some fat deposits removed and I have to say Dr Hannsen did a fantastic job. I found him to be a lovely caring doctor and clearly extremely good at his job judging by the brilliant result, now six months have past since the procedure. The hospital is spotlessly clean and efficient. The staff are all very polite and caring and all spoke perfect English. I would frankly never go anywhere else for surgery and coming from England it is really easy to get to if you use Eurostar and the local service from Brussels to Genk. The town is pleasant and I found the people and shop staff extremely polite and again English appears to be spoken everywhere as a second language. Should I ever require any further procedures I would not hesitate in going back to the Wellness Kliniek which, compared to my local NHS hospital, is far better and importantly cleaner and the standard of care and expertise of the surgeons second to none. Many thanks to all the staff once again and look forward to returning one day.
LiposuctionDoctor who performed the treatment: Dr. Paul HanssenJust exercise and lose some more weight, that is what my GP kept telling me ! The fact that I went to the gym regularly however, didn't seem to make a difference when it came to losing that little bit of extra fat in those stubborn areas? In the end, decided to go for it and have liposuction. So pleased with the results I got from my treatment at the Wellness Kliniek in Belgium!!! Priced per zone so I sent a photo via e-mail first just to check how many zones the surgeon, Dr. Hanssen, thought I should have treated to give me the result I wanted. In the end I had a liposculpture of three zones , that’s what they call it because they “sculpt” your body as it were, not just remove the fat. My tummy, love handles and upper thighs are now as I wanted them to be and I have a body shape that matches the physical effort that I put in ..hehe. Will definitely go back if I decide to have more treatment and my friends are already asking me for the number of the Wellness Kliniek!!
LiposuctionDoctor who performed the treatment: Dr. Paul HanssenI went for liposuction on my legs by Dokter Hanssen. He used local anaesthetic but it hurt a lot. I'm not happy about the surgery itself, too much pain. Local anaesthesia was not enough, I wish I had more anaesthesia or sleeping meds. The result is great, it looks really nice. The Dokter did a fantastic job. The price was 999 euro's (plus 109 for a compression pant and 35 for the consult) and I would have done it sooner if I knew that. I got a private room for half a day and that was very nice. Overall it's a very good clinic.
LiposuctionMale liposuction, tummy and love handles were done five years ago at this clinic. Although this is a review five years old, I can say that five years later the love handles and tummy have never reappeared. It did change my life. The staff at the clinic are excellent. The facility is spotless. Over all I am pleased with the results.
