Liposuction techniques
  • The incisions are in the order of 3 to 4 mm, small and barely visible because they are sealed in a natural skin fold.
  • Injection of a hypotonic solution in areas affected by the treatment: it is tumescent liposuction, the most conventional and effective method.
  • The excess of fatty masses are sucked by means of a cannula with an atraumatic rounded tip.
  • The removal of fat acts on the depths and the surface, thus the cellulite area is corrected.
  • The type and skin elasticity intervene directly to determine the amount of fat to be sucked.
  • The duration of the intervention can range from one to three hours depending on the areas to be treated and fat suction.
  • The patient is required to wear a compression garment (girdle) after surgery.
  • For a period of six weeks, the patient must wear a compression garment 24h / 24
  • The suture is fully absorbable without the need to have it removed.
  • The patient can shower after 48 hours minimum.
  • During the first few days and even months, it is quite common to see the formation of a swelling in the treated areas. This swelling can be considerable and asymmetrical gaining volume until the seventh day, and may last up to three months.
  • During the first two to three weeks, blue may appear and persist for a few weeks.
  • The patient may experience pain in the affected areas. This will require the prescription of painkillers that relieve this discomfort.
  • For several months, areas of interventions in the patient may be numb and / or exhibit insensitivity to touch.
  • Please allow 10-15 days of rest which will depend on the extent of liposuction.
  • For two months, the patient is prohibited to practice any sport.

The final result of a liposuction can be enjoyed after 3 to 6 months. This is the period that requires the skin to shrink and the swelling to disappear. Knowing that for adults, adipose cells (fat mass) sucked are not regenerated, the end result is usually permanent and durable.

As for wound healing, time of attenuation varies from one patient to another. We must therefore have a minimum of one year in order to assess the final outcome of small scars.

Liposuction can reduce excess fat, dramatically, permanently and generally satisfactory; fortunately, with minimal risk. However, one must realize the lack of foresight :

General complications :
  • Risks related to general anesthesia: Rare
  • Thromboembolic risk (phlebitis, pulmonary embolism), infections, and hematomas: very rare.
Local complications :
  • Hypo- or hypersensitivity sucked areas. This sensitivity gradually disappears after few months.
  • Asymmetry of the treated areas which requires local anesthesia alterations.
  • The overcorrection (depressions), skin irregularity (ripple effect) or sagging skin.
  • Minor skin retraction, with the possibility of formation of skin folds.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that must be taken seriously. And like any medical procedure, it implies a small share of hazards. But one should not overstate the risks.
