What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is not a treatment of obesity, but that it is destined to correct those parts of the body where fat persists and which is rebel to dietary regimes. Using this technique, we extract fat from various parts of the body, where there are in excess: hips, thighs, knees, ankles, arms, abdomen, face, etc. Sometimes it is complementary to other interventions (face lift, abdominoplasty, etc.). One of the advantages of liposuction is that this treatment is done without leaving visible scars.
In addition, it is currently known that fatty tissue extracted by this technique can be used to reshape body contour by injecting it in some areas (lipofilling), all with the goal of obtaining a more refined figure. We use small incisions of approximately 3 mm in length to introduce the cannulas.
Once the operation is complete, we will use a compression bandaging or an elastic garment according to the treated area. It is normal that bruises and inflammation of the tissues appear in the treated area.
Liposuction results should not be evaluated until a minimum of three months. However, these results are permanent, keeping even if the patient increases its weight after the surgery. Women tend to undergo a liposuction in the double chin, hips, thighs, abdomen, under the arms and around the breast.
