Liposuction Costa Rica

Sometimes, even with proper diet and exercise, we are not able to attain proportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. The solution for that may be liposuction. Costa Rica plastic surgeon Gabriel A. Peralta, M.D. has had experience in plastic surgery since 1987. With love and passion for the field of plastic surgery, Dr. Peralta offers his patients a caring and safe environment. He performs only one surgery a day to guarantee that his patients receive his full dedication and complete concentration on each particular case. Twice a year, Dr Peralta travels to exchange experience and assist in surgery with the most famous plastic surgeons in North America for continuing education. Dr. Peralta is board certified by the Costa Rican College of Physicians and Surgeons, and his practice has received a winning award from the Global Organization for Excellence in Health (GOEH).

Dr. Peralta has written for the most important medical and beauty magazines, and has appeared on many television shows, medical publications, and newspapers in Costa Rica.

If you have excess fat deposits, and want to slim and reshape specific areas of the body in order to improve your body contours and enhance your self-esteem, Dr. Peralta can perform liposuction (“liposculpture” or “lypoplasty”).

Liposuction removes excess fat and sculpts body fat to achieve more proportionate contours for the patient. Careful technique and execution using microcanular liposuction and the tumescent technique allows Dr. Peralta to obtain outstanding smoother results with less risk of complications and a faster recovery. He has performed over 2,000 liposuction procedures, on every part of the body, including the neck, abdomen, “back rolls,” hips, thighs, arms, calves and ankles, female breasts, and male breasts. He also offers the fat transfer method to improve facial wrinkles, hips, and buttocks; liposuction improves shape, size, curves, and proportions. In addition, fat injections are used for reconstructive purposes, enhancing the buttocks, face and lip augmentation.

Types of Liposuction

Traditional liposuction uses a mechanical vacuum-assisted method to remove fat, and a small metal cannula that is inserted through small incisions. This allows Dr. Peralta to remove fat, and then sculpt those areas to achieve the figure that you desire. The other method he uses is ultrasonic liposuction (UAL), which involves the use of ultrasonic vibration to explode fat cells. The fatty material is then removed by vacuum suctioning. This lipoplasty technique reduces the overall operative time, but there is the risk of burn injury and even permanent irregularities if areas of fat are dissolved where not intended. Another method of liposuction combines traditional liposuction with and oscillating cannula to help the break down the fat cells and the aspiration work is easier to the surgeon; this is called power-assisted liposuction (PAL) but do not show different results than the first noun liposuction.

Liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss or treatment for cellulite; it is a contouring procedure for areas of the body that are diet and exercise resistant. If you are interested in receiving this procedure, the best candidate is someone who has a commitment to get the weight off, and keep it off. Liposuction in an excellent procedure with a quick recovery and noticeable body contour improvements.
