Liposuction and Liposculpture

The accumulated local fat can be removed with lipoplasty. Lipoplasty is based on the fact that adipocytes are not regenerated.

This procedure corrects local lipodystrophies and decreases the number of adipocytes restoring the disproportion that a specific area of the body shows. Men and women with local fat that does not leave with diet and exercise are ideal candidates.

Selective fat accumulation in certain areas of the body discomforts many women but also men.

Areas, such as the buttocks, the outer and inner surface of the thighs, the abdomen, can hardly be treated with another way other than lipoplasty.

With lipoplasty we achieve fat removal and the change of our body contour.


After an excess of body fat and skin, both exercise and diet do not seem to offer a solution to the problem.

Today with liposculpting we can give the body the shape and contour that every patient desires with a permanent result.

A result that comes from an easy procedure without signs, large recovery time and fast come back to your activities.

Liposculpting is a multi-technical procedure that apart from the scientific knowledges of the plastic surgeon, also requires an artistic approach for even better results.

When to consider liposuction

  • If you have localized areas of fat that are disproportionate to the rest of your body.
  • If you would like a more flattering contour in certain areas of your body.
  • If the elasticity of your skin is satisfactory (given the fact that liposuction removes fat, but does not tighten the skin. For the latter Thermage is recommended).

During the clinical examination I will analytically explain to you all the advantages and disadvantages.

I will inform you that the results may be affected by weight gain, ageing or pregnancy and that liposuction is not intended to improve the appearance of cellulite or loose skin, but to remove localized fat.

I might also advise you to lose weight so that you will reap more benefits from liposuction.

How to know if you need liposuction

Diet and exercise has not helped everyone to get rid of persistent local fat.

The following are some of the most common reasons why you might want to consider undergoing liposuction:

  • You have little excess skin and good elasticity. The loss of skin elasticity with age may jeopardize the results of liposuction, but if your skin maintains its elasticity, age alone is not a contraindication for liposuction surgery.
  • You have localized fat deposits in the abdomen, arms, thighs, or neck, which may be attributed to hereditary factors and do not disappear with diet and exercise.
  • Maintain a stable body weight. If you plan to lose a significant amount of weight or if it is likely to increase, for example, because of a pregnancy, then this is not the right time to undergo liposuction.
  • Keep in mind that liposuction does not eliminate cellulite and cannot tighten loose skin. For the improvement of these conditions I can recommend other therapies, such as e.g. body mesotherapy for treating celluite and Thermage for tightening loose skin.

How liposuction is performed

Liposuction removes fat from your body with the use of a cannula (blunt-tipped tube) that is inserted through tiny incisions in the skin.

I am going to move this cannula below the skin to target the fat depots and then aspirate fat. There is a variety of techniques which facilitate liposuction. Personally, I use classic liposuction and liposuction with Vaser.

In classic liposuction, I carry out the procedure manually. With the performance of rhythmic movements in areas where there is fat, the fat is dissolved and subsequently siphoned off. The result is final when we have achieved permanent destruction of fat cells.

In liposuction with our state-of-the-art medical VASER ultrasonic device, an ultrasound probe disperses energy evenly, breaks down fat and then removes it. In fact, the ultrasonic waves that convert solid fat into liquid is the comparative advantage of the method, which facilitates handling of the most difficult areas without causing trauma to the surrounding tissues, thus dramatically reducing any swelling and hematomas.

Be aware that, in any case, excess fat removal must be avoided as there is a risk of asymmetries, that is “pits”, developing on the skin.

The operation is performed in an organized operating room under general anesthesia or local anesthesia and sedation in the presence of an anesthesiologist, and does not require hospital stay.

In both cases mentioned above, liposculpture can be performed. This means that, by special treatment and centrifugation, the aspirated fat is transferred to areas where there is shortage, such as facial wrinkles, lips, buttocks – to achieve a Brazilian lift, scars, as well as to the breasts instead of silicone implants.
