Is the surgical technique that is used to eliminate the fat accumulations of certain parts of the body (abdomen, hips, thighs, knees…). That´s why, the perfect candidates to have a liposuction are those people that have a relative normal weight but that have located fat accumulated. All so, once the fat cells are eliminated, these won´t reproduce so it is a long-lasting result.
The procedure is simple. It consists in minimum incisions, inserting a fine cannula where the fat is extracted.
Generally the surgery it is done under local anaesthesia and sedation, the intervention lasts between 1 and 2 hours depending of the areas that need the liposuction.
Visits before the surgery
The first visit with the surgeon is very important in order to provide a diagnosis, determinate the areas where the fat is accumulated and check the tonicity in the skin. He will explain the technique and comment the possible complications and risks.
Also he will explain how to prepare for surgery and talk about the necessary post-operative cares.
It is normal that after the surgery you may have some discomfort, hematomas and inflammation can appear in the area. That is why it is very important to follow the indications given by the surgeon and take the prescribed medication so the post-operative period will have a favourable outcome.
Also, you will have to wear a compressive girdle during approximately four weeks, for the skin to adapt to a new contour.
It is necessary to have check-ups throughout the year to ensure you have the best evolution and desired expected results.
To make this possible, we recommend that you have a balanced diet and that you do regular exercise.
