Liposuction

If you are considering a liposuction...

Lipoplasty is the esthetic plastic of the body contour by removing fat from specific areas of the body, reshaping it into a more slim contour by means of suction of the fat with delicate canullas.
The fat obtained with the liposuction can be used as fat graft to improve depressed areas of the body or to enlarge other areas.

Is it appropriated for me?

If you have localized fat deposits, are in good health and stable weight and have realistic expectations, then you are the perfect candidate!
Just have in mind that liposuction is not a method for losing weight, though it can really give you a strong feeling of enhanced self-confidence, improving greatly your self-image.

Preparing for your surgery

You will receive detailed instructions on how to prepare for this surgery. Your guidelines will include when and what to eat or not, stop taking or avoiding some drugs, vitamins. You will be asked to stop smoking at least two weeks before your surgery and not to resume for at least two weeks after it. These precautions are essential to reduce eventual risks.
Avoid overexposure to the sun and do not go on a stringent diet before the surgery as both can inhibit your ability to heal. If by any chance you catch a cold or any other kind of infection before your surgery, it may be postponed by your surgeon untill your full recovery.
The surgery

The first step planning your surgery is a thorough physical examination of the whole fat distribution on your body. Clinical examination as well as lab tests should be asked to determine the safety of this procedure.

After your surgery

It is normal to feel some discomfort and to have some brusing over the areas treated, but they vanish in about 2 weeks.
Limphatic drainage and ultrasound treatment following a liposuction can be recommended by your surgeon.

Your new look
