The lifestyle that forces us to lead society, leaves us little time to take care of ourselves as we should. Eats quickly and badly, little exercise is done. In the case of women after pregnancy, the body changes, priority is given to the role of mother, forgetting about herself. All this causes those extra pounds to accumulate in the form of fatty deposits that bother so much.

We have overweight patients. It is not only an aesthetic problem, but a health problem. In those cases we recommend a complete weight loss plan. Some patients may need some surgical intervention. Body contouring surgery is not a treatment of obesity, it is a technique to correct silhouette deformities.

Liposuction is responsible for eliminating fatty deposits located in holster, waist and abdomen. In the case of abdominoplasty, what we seek is to correct the abdominal sagging that occurs after pregnancy or considerable weight loss. In these cases, we have an abdominal flaccidity that we are going to solve effectively by retensifying the muscles and eliminating excess skin. In the case of the breast, we can practice several techniques such as breast augmentation , which involves the placement of a breast implant in order to achieve the desired volume and appearance.

In the reductive mammoplasty we are going to look for the reduction and remodeling of the breasts. Very large breasts can cause physical problems, such as back pain or erosion in the submammary groove by rubbing and sweating. With mastopexy, or mammary elevation , it is intended to enhance and elevate the breasts that due to factors such as age, lactation or weight loss, have suffered a sagging.

The benefits of treatment

All these techniques help the patient to improve their quality of life. Weight loss is accompanied by an improvement in healthy habits and reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases. The locomotor system benefits.

In patients who undergo breast reduction they will notice an evident improvement in back pain. But do not forget that all these changes are accompanied by obvious aesthetic benefits. With which, self-confidence and self-esteem are increased.

Considerations before the intervention

The person in charge of the intervention must be a surgeon, plastic, esthetician and repairer. And interventions should always be practiced in an operating room within the hospital setting and forming part of a unit with a sanitary registry.
