Liposculpture and liposuction
Liposuction, what exactly?
It is known as liposuction surgical procedure that allows us to effectively as a body remodeling by removing clusters of subcutaneous fat.
Fat can not always be eliminated with diet and exercise
These fat deposits are usually hereditary and can not be removed only with a healthy diet and exercise. The ultimate solution is to remove them by liposuction surgery.The difference is that with liposuction, liposuction got reshape the silhouette of the patient with greater precision. The disadvantage of traditional liposuction is that it leaves too thick and heavy skin-fat flap, whereas liposuction can also remove surface oil, leaving a thinner and lighter flap retracts further, creating new curves and volumes, and highlighting property of skin retraction. This simple, liposuction allows us to accurately remove fat and where we want. In this way we achieve a new body shape with excellent cosmetic results.
What liposuction is used?
We choose liposuction technique in cases of stomach and hips with excessive accumulations of fat in buttocks with poor form and extent, with little legs contour definition, as well as in the region of the chin.
During the first consultation the plastic surgeon will evaluate your general condition, existing fat deposits and tone and firmness. It will explain the alternative methods to improve body contour, as a tummy tuck, and the options or combination of procedures that are best for you will be discussed. You will be instructed on how to prepare for surgery, including guidelines on food and liquid intake, or taking snuff or suppressing medications, vitamins and iron supplements. If you have a cold or infection of any kind, especially if skin, surgery may be postponed. Also be sure that a family member or companion to take you home when you are discharged and, if necessary, can help a couple of days.
The technique, which is always performed in an operating room, consisting essentially of fat aspiration by introducing a cannula attached to a vacuum machine or a special syringe, as appropriate, and performing numerous tunnels in the previously marked area.
The duration of a liposuction is usually between 1 and 2 hours, time is variable (from 30 minutes to several hours) depending on the area and amount. Initially, a small incision, sufficiently to introduce the cannula is made. The surgeon moves the cannula from fatty deposits under the skin, breaking up the fat and suctioning.
This new technique introduces a variable affecting the level of fat intake, to the size and shapes of the cannulas.
Is introduced through a small incision 3-4 mm, very thin cannulas connected to a vacuum removed excess fat at the surface. This act is done considering some body areas that are key to a harmonious remodeling of the curves is achieved.
The procedure is performed under general, local, or epidural anesthesia depending on the extent of the area to be treated or the amount of fat to suck.
After surgery the tissues are edematous, taking 3-4 weeks to reduce its volume so the results can be considered definitive until after 3 months postoperatively. a belt, stockings or elastic bandage on the treated to control swelling and bleeding area will be placed, and to help the skin to adapt to the new contour. It is usually necessary to take for 2 or 3 weeks, and then only during the day for a few more weeks, depending on the instructions of your plastic surgeon. Antibiotics may also be administered to prevent infection.
Healing is a gradual process. Your plastic surgeon will instruct you to start walking as soon as possible (to prevent the formation of venous thrombi in the legs), but do not do vigorous activities for 2-4 weeks. The stitches will be removed between 5 and 10 days, and may return to work in 2 or 3 days, or at most, after 2 weeks of intervention, depending on the extent of liposuction and the recommendations of your surgeon. The swelling and bruising will disappear in the first or second month after liposuction; however, minimal inflammation may continue for 6 or more months.
Liposuction is a safe, as long as you select the right patient, the operating room is well equipped and is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon. However, in some cases complications may occur, especially when high amounts of fat are removed at once. Another, although possible, is rare complication fluid accumulation (which must be drained) and skin lesion. Although serious complications are rare, it could present infection and excessive loss of fluids that require adequate treatment.
The advantages of this technique are the presence of minimal scarring, little pain, no prolonged immobilization, possibility of treating a single intervention in several areas of the body, resumption of normal activities in 4-5 days and possibility of partnering with other interventions are needed as the reduction of breast volume or dermolipectomy. Today the techniques used to reduce localized fat, superficial liposuction allows getting better volumetric reduction and body contouring detailed sculpture, can not only reduce fat volume, but also improve the curves and volumes to create a new silhouette. Today we can propose, without doubt, an effective, safe and with bright cosmetic surgery results.
