Localized fat or generalized excess of subcutaneous adipose tissue are often resistant to diet and physical exercise. Liposuction can effectively address these defects, eliminating local adiposity and reshaping body contour.

Liposuction has different indications:

  • Profile and contour defects
  • Localized adiposity
  • Regional adiposity

Liposuction can be performed in different body parts. The most commonly treated areas are:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Gluteal region, to redefine the contours and eliminate fat deposits generally located in the gluteal fold.
  • Thighs
  • Pre-trochanteric area
  • Neck and Chin
This procedure is performed under local anesthesia with sedation. When the aspiration of higher volume is requested, general anesthesia should be considered.

The surgical wounds measure 2 mm and are typically placed in cutaneous folds (e.g. in the navel, gluteal folds). These wounds are sutured with simple stitches that are removed 7 days later.

The stitches of the small surgical access required for fat harvesting and implant are removed 7 days after surgery. A compression garment is indicated over the harvesting site to reduce swelling and bruising. The patient can return to daily activities in one week. Sports and intense physical activities are allowed three weeks after surgery. Swelling and bruising regress spontaneously in 1 or 2 months.
