Body Services



Liposuction sculpts the body by removing unwanted fat that did not respond to diet and exercise from the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and the neck.


Liposuction does not only provide the opportunity to thin in productive areas of the body but it ensures that these areas will not collect extra fat in the future, by removing the fat cells.

Dr. Sotirios Ioannidis respects each patient as completely different and individual case, both in their body shape and in their liposuction needs. We take as much time as needed during the pre-operative consultation to listen to the desires of each patient. Then, we decide which technique is the appropriate for each case. All our patients enjoy a fully tailored treatment designed according to their personal goals and desires.
The liposuction process begins with the injection of a solution containing saline, a local anesthetic called lidocaine, and a small amount of adrenaline to reduce bruising and bleeding. This is known as the tumescent or super wet technique, depending on the ratio of fluid to adipose tissue removed. Once this solution is injected into the affected area, the doctor proceeds with the suction of the fat along with the solution. A tiny incision is made in the less visible spot as possible. Using the suction technique of the assisted liposuction (SAL), a tube is inserted. It moves back and forth under the skin, breaking down the oily layer and absorbing it. The liposuction process can take from one to five hours, depending on the amount of fat to be removed. Dr. Ioannidis uses either local anesthesia or general anesthesia, depending on the size of the area or areas being treated. During the preoperative consultation we will discuss which method will be most effective for you.
After the liposuction surgery takes place, some drainage tubes, compression garments and antibiotics may be needed to smooth the healing process. Patients are encouraged to walk when they feel ready to do so and to return to work within a few days. Any kind of painful activity or exercise should be avoided for about a month.
The results are immediately visible and the improvement usually continues as the swelling decreases during the first three months. The scars from the insertion point of the liposuction tube are small and faint.
The risks are extremely limited when liposuction is performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon. However, in rare cases the following may occur:
  • Infection
  • Delays in healing
  • Βlood clots
  • Shock
  • Fluids accumulation
  • Sense of burning
  • Drilling failure
  • Lidocaine toxicity
  • Adverse reactions from the drug or anesthesia
