Liposuction is a surgery during which local fat deposits are removed with the help of a special liposuction system. The aim is to slim down the body and change its proportions. It is an effective method to achieve a better look with minimal and unnoticeable scars, yet long-term results. It is often performed together with other surgeries such as tummy tuck, breast reduction or breast augmentation.
Liposuction may simultaneously be performed in a maximum of 12 areas and during one surgery about 0.5-6 litres of fat can be removed.
Most popular areas include:
- upper and lower abdomen
- inner and outer thighs
- inner side of knees
- back etc.
Liposuction is best suited for patients who:
- are in good health
- have good skin elasticity and muscle tone
- do not exceed their normal weight by more than 30%
Liposuction is not a replacement for training and healthy eating habits. It also does not remove cellulite. Following the liposuction, body weight needs to stay stable for at least for the next six months. Weight gain of more than 3-5 kg may cause pit-like skin in the treated areas.
Surgery at Christinas Clinic
Christinas Clinic operates with a new generation liposuction system Eva SP6 by Euromi S.A (Belgium). To remove fat deposits, it uses a special Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture technique also known as N.I.L.®
First saline solution is injected into the treated area to dissolve the fat tissue. In the next phase the emulsified fat is aspirated. For that a cannula with specific “vibrating+rotating” movement is used. Although the results are partly visible immediately after surgery, it takes another three to six months for adipose tissue to even out and take new forms. The results are long-lasting and create new permanent proportions for the body.
N.I.L is less traumatic to tissues compared to widely used manual techniques.With Eva SP6, liposuction can be performed with less bleeding and less bruising than with the manual technique. It also allows very precise control of both the amount and location of sucked fat and thus provide consistent results.

Christinas Clinic is the first clinic in Estonia to offer the safe and effective 360 degree lipo.
