Liposuction/Liposculpture

Liposuction removes unwanted fat deposits from specific areas of the body, including upper arms, chest, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles.

Liposuction is not a substitute for legitimate weight reduction programs but rather a method of removing localized fat that won’t respond to dieting and exercise.

Since the newly formed contour is dependent on contraction of the overlying skin, the best candidates for liposuction are those patients who are young with good skin quality and not obese.

What is Liposculpture?

Liposculpture is a form of liposuction procedure in which global silhouette assessment is performed and areas of fat removal and fat deposition or transplantation are defined in order to maximize the final result. The procedure forsees an aspiration phase and an infiltration phase after fat processing. The aspiration phase is done exclusively in longitudinal axis to maximize skin contraction. Fat processing is of vital importance to guarantee the survival of the graft.

After the procedure elastic garments and bandages and special foams are used to guide the skin to follow the new desired body contour.
