It is focused on men and women who want to improve their body contour. Liposuction will enhance your physical appearance, your body contour and your self-esteem. Before deciding on this intervention, think well about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon. The best candidates for liposuction are people with a relatively normal weight but who have fat accumulation in certain areas. They must be physically healthy and mentally stable, always being realistic with their expectations. And the most important thing, the patient must have firm and elastic skin. Flaccid skin will not adapt to new contour shapes and may require additional intervention to remove excess skin (abdominoplasty). You should keep in mind that this additional procedure can leave visible scars.
Liposuction is a technique to remove unwanted fat that has accumulated in specific areas of the body: the chin, neck and cheeks, upper arms, abdomen, hips and buttocks, thighs and knees, twins and ankles. Liposuction is not a method to lose weight, but a technique to eliminate fat that does not respond to diets or exercise.

Please ask your doctor any questions.
At the first visit to the surgeon, your health will be assessed, your fat deposits will be determined and the condition of your skin will be carefully assessed. Your doctor may explain to you some other alternative method of modeling your body and will discuss the options or combinations of techniques that may work best for you. Be honest with your expectations to the surgeon, he will be equally frank with you, describing all the details of your procedure, as well as the risks and limits. You should also tell if you smoke or take any kind of medicine or other substances. Do not hesitate to ask any doubts that arise, especially in those that relate to your expectations and the results of the intervention.
The intervention will take place in a clinic. If your intervention is not very extensive, liposuction can be performed under local anesthesia and sedation, so that you are calm and relaxed with minimal discomfort. Epidural anesthesia may also be used. If your doctor plans to suction a larger area or treat different areas, general anesthesia will probably be used. In this case you will sleep during the whole operation. Depending on the amount of fat to be removed, the duration of a liposuction varies considerably from half an hour to 3 hours.
You will wear the garment continuously for 3 to 4 weeks, depending on your surgeon’s instructions. At first, the suctioned areas will be swollen and bruised; You may feel a sense of warmth. In the beginning, because of the swelling, it will look worse than it was. It is normal to feel some pain, stiffness and loss of sensation temporarily on the suctioned areas. The pain can be controlled by the medications your doctor prescribes. It is advisable to start walking as soon as possible to prevent the formation of clots. It is important to avoid excessive activity for 2 or 4 weeks. Any stitches you may have will be removed within 5 to 10 days and you can return to work within 1 to 2 weeks after the procedure. Most of the inflammation and discoloration disappear within a month. Some inflammation may persist for 6 months or longer.
