Liposuction is the surgical procedure indicated to eliminate localized fat in areas of the body that can not be eliminated even with balanced diet and physical exercise. Has the main objective to improve body contour returning the so desired “corners” of the female body.
How liposuction is performed?
Liposuction is performed through cannulae of small thickness, connected to a suction device and allow the removal of fat beneath the skin through small incisions (0.5 cm) positioned in a way to be discreet and almost imperceptible. Can be performed under general anesthesia, epidural or even local with sedation since in appropriate surgical environment.

The answer is no! The proposal of a liposuction body sculpting, outline the shapes and curves through the removal of localized fat that persists. Important to remember that the surgery does not replace healthy habits that should continue to be encouraged, as well as good eating habits.
What is the amount of fat that can be removed in liposuction?
It is important to note that the most important thing in a liposuction is not the amount of suctioned fat and yes the quality of aspiration. Fat should not be in large quantity and yes that localized fat did at strategic points and when withdrawals contribute to a body contouring more beautiful and harmonious. The maximum limit allowed by the Brazilian society of plastic surgery and by the federal Council of medicine is 7% of body weight.
How is post-operative liposuction?
In the post-operative the patient remains admitted in hospitals for 12:0 am. Must be at rest on the first week when they are removed from the points. The lymphatic drainages are fundamental and should be initiated as early as 4 days post-op and generally are required on average 10 sessions. Social activities and can be established after the withdrawal of points and return to the Academy in 30 days. We recommend the use of compressive brace for 12:0 am during 30 days, followed by 12:0 for over 30 days.
It is true that the location was lipoaspirado it won’t accumulate fat? Why?
That is an understatement. The site lipoaspirado can return to accumulate fat but more smoothly than the other sites that have not been lipoaspirados. The reason is that when fat cells aspires, many lose their nucleus, thus losing their function. So, if the patient neglect food, this fat can be seen accumulating in other places, especially those who have never been handled.
If the patient does not follow a balanced diet, it can put the result of surgery at risk?
Yes, you can! The idea of a liposuction remove that fat “stubborn” accumulated that the patient can’t lose with diet and exercise. Is a push toward a healthy and balanced life. An imbalance in consumption and expenditure of calories can compromise the outcome of the surgery.
