Liposuction - Liposculpture
Designed to treat localized fat deposits, liposuction or liposculpture (syringe liposuction) lets us give you or recover the body’s shape.
Done under local anaesthesia - modified tumescent technique - this procedure is considerably safer and offers you a faster recovery.
Because general anaesthesia is not used and the patient is awake, we can take all the time required to obtain the best achievable results, check the patient from different positions and evaluate the patient in standing position in selected cases.
The result will be obvious the morning after surgery, but there will be a progressive swelling for the following 4 to 5 days. After it, swelling begins to recede fast, in a week, and slowly for two to three more weeks. So, you’ll see 80% to 90% of the final results in about a month.
Flaccidity of the skin is not usually a problem, except with extremely fat patients.
A careful execution permits you be fully recovered in 3 - 5 days; doing your usual activities the next day of surgery, with mild to moderate discomfort and minimal or no bruising at all.
Lymphatic drainage massage is recommended for at least one month in the treated areas to help reduce swelling and heal faster.
In some selected cases, general anaesthesia may be used, according to medical conditions and the patient or surgeon’s preferences.
