Liposuction or liposculpture is a surgical technique used to remove fat deposits from certain areas of the body.
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that allows a remodeling of the silhouette through the extraction of fat by means of very fine cannulas or a syringe connected to a suction machine.
Liposuction assisted by compressed air or the use of ultrasonic waves optimizes the result in the case of very fibrous fat.
The objective of liposuction is the reduction of a volume of fat in one or more areas simultaneously that distort the patient’s figure objectively or subjectively. It is very common to find these excess fat on the knees, thighs, hips, arms, abdomen and double chin.
Liposuction’s primary purpose is to eliminate adipose tissue located in different areas of the body, using liposuction surgery. Body lipodystrophy can be divided into two types: generalized and localized. The generalized is what is commonly known as obesity and a liposuction operation is not necessary but the most appropriate treatment is diet.
Liposuction can be accompanied by another cosmetic surgery called Dermolipectomy; This aesthetic operation is applied in the event that the excess is fat and skin. If, on the contrary, there is only excess fat, the treatment of choice will be liposuction.
Liposuction allows the repositioning of part of the superfluous fat extracted as a graft to provide greater volume and shape in specific areas and thus achieve a more aesthetic appearance, which is why liposuction surgery is also known as liposculpture.
