Liposuction (Lipectomy)

Liposuction is a procedure designed to reshape specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits. It can be done in almost any part in which excess fat is observed, improving your body contours and proportion almost immediately. The fat that is removed can be used to sculpt other areas of the body such as the buttocks.

Scars are almost imperceptible since they are about 0.5 centimeters long and done in body areas where natural skin creases, or the patient’s clothes, hide them.

The average duration of the procedure is 3 hours, depending on the areas of the body where the procedure is done. It can also be combined with other plastic surgery procedures for improvement of different areas. Regional anesthesia is used and recovery time is 7 to 10 days.

Surgery Options

Surgery options for liposuction are ultrasound-assisted liposuction, laser-assisted liposuction and water-assisted liposuction or lipoplasty. The specific procedure performed depends on several characteristics of each patient and the surgeon’s preference

Risks and Complications

As with any surgery, there is risk of complications related to infection or reaction to anesthesia. A proper assessment of every patient, along with complete lab work, will help in the prevention of postoperative complications. After healing, scars are handled with special treatments to help in the minimization of their appearance.
