SWT stands for Soft-Wet-Technique or TSI (Tumescent Soft Jet Infiltration) method. This modern liposuction technique is a relatively painless treatment. The surgeon can carefully remove the excess fat in a highly controlled manner. A large quantity of liquid is injected (soft jet infiltration). This liquid makes the fatty tissue swell up and dissolve so it can be easily and selectively removed. The special liquid also ensures that there is hardly any bleeding.
Suitable candidates for a Liposuction
If your general health is good and you don't suffer from a tendency to bleed heavily, then you can have liposculpture without extensive pre-examinations. If this is not the case then adequate medical examination, radiography or blood tests may be required.
The doctor always will advise you to stop taking blood-thinning medication 10 days before the treatment.
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 "lymphoedema tarda" can be the cause of puffy legs. If you suffer from this condition, liposculpture has little effect. Fluid accumulation is not affected by liposculpture.
