Service Description

This procedure, which is also known as liposuction, is recommended for patients with localized excess fat but not obese, or with sagging or flaccid skin, as liposuction seeks the reduction of fat with subsequent contraction of the skin that adapts to the new body contour, otherwise the skin will remain thin but off-hook.

The most frequent sites of liposuction are the abdomen, the waist, the back, the thighs on its internal and external face (rabbits or guns), knees, arms, neck (jowls), armpits, etc. This procedure can be combined with lipoinjection or fatty graft, which fills with fat the depressed sites or with little enhancement such as buttocks, lateral depressions of the buttock, lips, facial grooves, forehead, etc.


General or epidural (column) anesthesia is recommended in large cases and local assisted anesthesia in localized cases.


Through small incisions, the fatty tissues are infiltrated with a special solution that helps to loosen the fat and avoid bleeding to be able to make extensive liposuction with minimal complications and avoid blood transfusions, then with the help of special cannulas the extraction is performed of the superficial and deep fat of the area in question, until obtaining the desired contour; to then suture the wounds that are less than 1 cm in hidden places.

Then a girdle is placed for 1 to 2 months and sutures are removed weekly and physiotherapy is started, basic for a good result. Antibiotics and analgesics are formulated, it is managed on an outpatient basis. The duration of the procedure ranges from 2 to 4 hours approximately.
