How to keep your body fit after liposuction

Summer is over already. Did you enjoy it, or did you often feel insecure about your body? Then it's time to choose to be happy! Because even if you diet or exercise, your body can store stubborn fat in certain places that you just can't get rid of. In both women and men, localized fat deposits can throw your body out of balance and make you feel insecure. Liposuction or liposculpture is the ideal solution. The Wellness Kliniek will make sure you become the best version of yourself!

Liposuction or liposculpture

Liposuction literally means 'sucking out fat'. At the Wellness Kliniek, we now prefer the term liposculpture, because we not only remove the fat, but also use it to give your body the desired shape. The results of this technique are remarkable, and it is the second most popular procedure in our clinic.

The most popular places to lose fat for women are the abdomen, hips and buttocks (jodhpurs) and for men the chest. But you can also suffer from localised fat deposits in other places, such as your arms, cheeks, back, double chin, etc. In principle, unwanted fat can be removed from many different places on the body at the same time.


After the removal of fat from unwanted areas, specialised doctors can use the fat to fill up body parts. Women often ask for the removed and purified fat to be injected into the breasts, buttocks or face. For example, you may become thinner around the abdomen or hips, while your breasts become fuller. So liposuction combined with natural breast enlargement is certainly possible. The doctors inject the body's own fat into the breasts to increase their volume. With lipofilling, it is possible to increase the size of the breasts up to one cup size.

Recovery after liposuction


After surgery, your body needs time to recover. In the first few days, it is important you get enough rest. Try to avoid sudden body movements for the first 36 hours. Make sure you keep moving by walking, cycling and doing light household chores. Movement is important for good circulation and build this up gradually. After 4 to 6 weeks, you can resume all activities, including sports.

Compression bandages or pressure garments 

If you have received a pressure bandage after liposuction, you must wear it to distribute the pressure well. At the Wellness Kliniek, post-operative gauze or pressure garments are included in the operation. For optimal results, they should be worn day and night for the first 6 weeks. The material of the pressure garment dries quickly, so you can take it off to wash it.

Moisture retention

It is completely normal to retain some fluid or to have small fluid accumulations after the operation. There is no need to worry about this, as it will drain away by itself. Drink plenty of water to help the fluids drain away.

Hard spots after liposuction

The treated area may feel a little sensitive after surgery. There may be residual swelling or hardening on the body after liposuction. Don't worry, the hardness and swelling on the body will disappear after a while.

Connective tissue massage after liposuction

Sometimes, the doctor prescribes a post-operative massage, connective tissue massage or lymph drainage. This after-treatment can ensure a faster and smoother result. This is not always necessary, as the contours of your body will gradually improve.

Sagging skin

The goal of liposuction is to create a more beautiful body. We therefore do everything possible to prevent flabby or loose skin. Many of the points mentioned earlier contribute to this. Massages, pressure bandages or compression garments, as well as post-operative exercise and drinking enough water, all contribute to an optimal result.

The result after liposuction

It is not a fable that once fat cells are removed, they never return. The result of liposuction is therefore permanent. Only when weight increases, the remaining fat cells in the body become larger. This is why you can still gain weight after liposuction. As long as you maintain your current healthy diet and take enough exercise, the risk of gaining weight is very small.

After the procedure, we always look at how we can accelerate the desired end result. Together we will ensure you can enjoy your dream body as soon as possible. We remain available 24/7 until you have fully recovered.
