Liposuction in Munich


A slim well-shaped body is considered attractive and desirable. To achieve and maintain the body contours, an active lifestyle and a balanced diet are essential. Still, even very athletic people have a few little love handles in unwanted places. They are often hereditary, and of all things, these tiny fat deposits, in particular, cannot be fundamentally changed by physical exercise or a healthy diet alone.
However, these unwanted love handles may be tackled with the help of liposuction, precisely and sustainably, permanently reshaping your body contours and proportions.

Liposuction is particularly promising in the following areas:

  • Hips
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Outer thigh (“saddlebags”)
  • Inner thigh
  • Inner knee
  • Calves
  • Abdomen
  • Mons pubis
  • Lateral breast area
  • Chin (“double chin“)
  • Upper arms

Liposuction is also effective for so-called Lipedema, providing lasting alleviation.

Due to Dr. med. Dr. med. Christina Irene Günter’s international activities and her cooperation with famous bariatric surgeons in Kuwait, one of her main areas of expertise is post-bariatric or body-shaping surgery, including liposuction.

The most suitable treatment for your individual situation will be discussed in a personal consultation with Dr. med. Dr. med. Christina Irene Günter.

Your health is always given priority. Surgery that negatively affects your health or physical integrity is not recommended and will not be performed. Detailed consultations are mandatory before any surgical procedure. It is essential to talk about the motivation for this kind of surgery, to discuss whether the desired result can be achieved, and to speak about possible limitations. Other important topics are alternative treatments, as well as potential adverse side effects and possible risks.


As with any surgical procedure, liposuction may lead to bruising (hematoma), secondary bleeding, swelling, wound healing disorders, infections, and wound dehiscence. Temporary numbness of the treated area may also occur.

If you decide on a liposuction treatment, it is essential that you are cared for professionally and personally during the entire process. 

I attach great importance to perceiving, advising, and treating you as an individual, with all your personality’s facets. My many years of experience, expertise, empathy, and communication are central pillars of my therapeutic success. Intensive and personal post-treatment care is as much a focus of my work as the preparation and the treatment itself. After all, a perfect result can only be achieved by working together as a team.
