Liposuction – lipoaspiration

lipoaspiration – Cannes & Nice | Dr.Victor Médard de Chardon


Liposuction (or lipoaspiration or lipoplasty) enables radically and definitively eliminating excess localized fat.

Two basic notions must be borne in mind with regard to obtaining a good result: 
1. It is important to understand that lipoaspiration is not a way to slim but a technique to sculpt the silhouette by working on localized excess fat.
2. The skin must be of good quality.

Indeed, thanks to the natural elasticity of the skin and the fibrosis induced with the insertion of the cannulas, the skin will redrape and tighten. Thus, we understand well that a lipoaspiration in an area of poor skin (fine, stretched, inelastic, ptosic excess caused by slackness) will lead to a mediocre result and should not be carried out. Fatty excesses in poor skin would rather indicate lifting (skin resection) possibly in conjunction with lipoaspiration, abdominoplasty, buttocks lift, bodylifting, arm and thigh lift.

It must be understood that despite recently becoming rather commonplace, lipoaspiration is a true surgical procedure that must be performed by a qualified, competent plastic surgeon, specifically trained in this technique and practising in a true surgical context.


Hospitalization: Outpatient or one night’s hospitalization
Anaesthesia: General anaesthesia, spinal anaesthesia or local anaesthesia with sedation (“vigil” anaesthesia)
Duration: Between 30 minutes and 3 hours


The scars are very short (a few millimetres) and ideally placed so as to be almost invisible. Aspiration is carried out with the aid of round-tipped, blunt cannulas.



Liposuction is usually carried on the following areas: the neck, armpits, arms, “love handles”, belly, pubis, “saddlebags”, buttocks, thighs, knees, calf muscles or ankles.


Liposuction is most commonly carried out on the following areas: the neck (double chin), the breasts, belly and love handles.


Dr. Victor MÉDARD DE CHARDON uses an air vibroliposuction device (Lipomatic) which enables performing lipoaspiration without forcing the tissues. The manoeuvre is gentler, more regular and more precise. In this way, liposuction has become nimbler and more reassuring.
The emulsion created by the vibration of the tip of the cannula enables disintegrating the fatty tissue to promote its aspiration at the same time respecting the surrounding tissues. Post-operative recovery is also milder and shorter: there is less ecchymosis (bruising), fewer oedemas, better recovery and a better skin aspect.


Moderate pain 
Ecchymosis (bruising): 7 to 21 days 
Oedema (swelling): 2 to 3 weeks 

LPG and lymphatic drainage sessions: sometimes carried out as of 3 weeks post-op. (softens tissues and helps reabsorb oedema)

No stitches to be removed (dissolving suture below the skin)
Return to activities: on the 3rd day
Wearing of a Lipopanty: 4 weeks
The wearing of compression stockings: 8 to 15 days.
First visible results: 3rd week
In 3 to 6 months, the skin retracts to the new curvature
