Liposculpture or liposuction is a minor surgery and outpatient care that is performed under local tumescent anesthesia. The incisions are minimal and do not require stitches, so the subsequent discomforts will be like laces, although there may be some small bruise. In any case, the incorporation to the social-labor life can be done after 24 or 48 hours.
This is not a technique to lose weight but to improve body contour and shape. The cannulas are very thin and the aspiration must be done usually with syringe to sculpt, mold the area to be treated (hence its name of liposuction) or vacuum cleaner in very advanced cases. Subsequently, the compressive garment will take 3 to 4 weeks.
Results of liposuction
The areas most often demanded are the hip-waist , the trochanter ( cartridge belts ) and the inner side of the knees. And in them this technique is of excellent results and for life. In other areas such as the abdomen, ankles, subcutaneous chin, back and arms, the results may be different and require a good diagnosis to achieve a good effect. That is, we must take into account if there is muscle and skin flaccidity important, and in the case of the abdomen (diastosis of recti) because this would contraindicate this intervention and would have to resort to more drastic surgical methods.
Liposculpture is the best method to eradicate localized fat accumulations and only 0.1% of patients can recover some fat.
