What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a treatment aimed at eliminating fat deposits located in different parts of the body, characterized by their resistance to diets.

By means of this technique, fat concentrated in different areas of the body, such as hips, thighs, knees, ankles, arms, abdomen, face, etc., can be aspirated.

The results can be permanent, as long as the patient maintains an adequate diet and practices exercise periodically.

When is liposuction indicated?

The ideal candidates to undergo this treatment are people with a relatively normal weight, who present accumulations of fat in localized areas. Therefore, it is not a technique for treating obesity and, it should be noted, it partially improves cellulite.

On the contrary, liposuction is not recommended when the patient has recently undergone surgery in the area to be treated, has poor circulation in that area or suffers from heart or respiratory problems.

Most frequent indications:

  • Fat accumulation in localized areas.

¿Cómo se realiza la liposucción?

The operation, which lasts between 1 and 2 hours, is usually performed under general anesthesia, although when the application is very specific can be treated by local anesthesia.

Always performed in an operating room, the technique consists essentially of aspirating the fat through the introduction of a cannula connected to a vacuum machine or a special syringe, depending on each case.

After the operation, a compressive bandage or an elastic garment is used. The appearance of bruises and inflammation of the tissues is normal in the operated area.

This is a highly effective technique for achieving a new body contour with minimal scarring.

However, a minimum of three months must pass before the beneficial effects of the intervention can be evaluated.

The results can be permanent, as long as the patient maintains an adequate diet and practices exercise periodically.
