Liposuction or Vibroliposuction

Liposuction or Vibroliposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure developed to remove excess fat that is resistant to exercise and diets, shaping the figure of those who undergo this procedure. Liposuction is an excellent alternative to improve the abdominal contour when the skin of the abdomen has good elasticity and does not have much flaccidity and stretch marks.

Technique:

The surgical procedure is performed with a small tube called a cannula that is connected to a vacuum pump. Small incisions are made through which infiltrate liquids with adrenaline that minimize blood loss and facilitate fat extraction. The cannula is then inserted into the grease set to be removed. The surgeon moves in a soft and delicate way the cannula, which has a micro vibration, facilitating the aspiration of unwanted fat deposits. It is possible to inject this grease in areas such as buttocks or breasts afterwards.

Recommendations:

It is recommended to quit smoking 2 weeks before surgery. The best candidate for liposuction is a patient who wants to improve the body contour, which has localized deposits of fat and that has had its weight stable during the last three months. The patient with morbid obesity should be treated differently.

Surgical Time:

From 1 to 2 hours, it also depends on whether it is combined with other procedures.

Risks:

Hematomas, seromas, changes in skin pigmentation, anemia and in 1.1% of cases pulmonary embolism can occur, however most of the time it is a very simple procedure without major side effects.

Postoperative:

Starting at 5 days you can begin to work and perform your normal activities; however it is recommended to start exercising until the fourth week after surgery. The painkillers allow you to successfully control pain, if you feel it. There are bruises and swelling in varying degrees. These usually disappear in 2 to 3 weeks. The inflammation or swelling takes a little longer to resolve, a better contour will be appreciated per month, from then on the process 1of disinflammation continues and it is finally between the third and sixth month when the definitive results are appreciated. The use of a special girdle is recommended for one month.

Results:

You will see visible and spectacular results in a short time with fewer bruises than in other techniques, and this type of technology allows us to eliminate larger amounts of fat compared to other treatments.

Advantage:

Liposuction offers a new body contour, you can see the waist more and you see a much more stylized figure with minimal scars. The final result can be seen at 3 months, although in the third week you can see a change of 70%.
