Knee liposuction allows the radical and definitive removal of fat located on the inner face, as well as the fat above and below the knees to create a knee with harmonious contours.
The “big knees” are the cause of a complex that often prevents patients from wearing skirts. This gives the impression of having heavy legs without relief.
Sporting activities or diet do not eradicate this excess localised fat.

Before a knee
liposuction operation

During the consultation, Dr. Diacakis plastic surgeon in Paris will give you a consent, an estimate, a prescription of the necessary medication for before and after the operation and a preoperative check-up that the anaesthetist can complete if necessary.
Doctor Diacakis will also prescribe you a girdle or panty that you will have to wear for 3 to 4 weeks. The girdle covers from your feet to your stomach.
Any medication containing aspirin will be prohibited 15 days before the operation.
Doctor Richard Diacakis, plastic surgeon in Paris will see you in the morning in your room before the operation to take preoperative photos and draw the areas to be removed.  You will be discharged the same evening.

No social security coverage is possible for this aesthetic operation, so no sick leave can be prescribed. It is possible to return to work 2 to 5 days after the operation, so it is important to allow for this period of unavailability. 

The course of a
knee liposuction operation

Knee liposuction is generally performed under local anaesthesia.
The micro-incisions are camouflaged in the fold of the knee on the anterior side, taking care of the incisions. Incisions on the back of the knee should be avoided as there is a high risk of scarring.
Knee lipoaspiration by Dr. Diacakis, a plastic surgeon in Paris, takes about 45 minutes and is carried out with foam and fine cannulas adapted to this location.
The panty is placed in the operating theatre.

After a knee
liposuction operation

The panty is worn for about 3 to 4 weeks.
Showering is possible two days later.

Sporting activities should be interrupted for 3 to 4 weeks, depending on the context.
The time needed to recover and recover from knee liposuction is often short (about 2 to 5 days).
When you go out, on the same day, it is essential that you return home by taxi or accompanied by someone. It is forbidden to return by public transport.

Bruises will disappear within 10 to 20 days after the operation when they exist.
Pain, although moderate, can be relieved by simple painkillers.
It will be advisable above all not to expose to the sun or to U.V. rays for 3 months.
The threads are absorbable.

Result of a

The final result of a knee liposuction is observed after 6 months as with any liposuction.
