What is liposuction?

Liposuction (also called liposuction or liposculpture) is a technique by which we suck up excess fat deposits lodged in targeted regions of the body.

As these hereditary fatty deposits are resistant to weight loss diets, liposuction is the method of choice for permanently sculpting the silhouette.

Do you dream of seeing the bulges that you deem unsightly disappear?

Make an appointment for a consultation to determine if liposuction is really the best technique for you.

What results can we expect from liposuction?

By sucking up some of the lipid reservoirs, it reduces the possibility of accumulating fat in the treated areas. As you gain weight, the fat will usually distribute itself to the remaining cells, maintaining the curves dictated by the liposuction, hence the term liposculpture.

Liposuction is particularly effective in removing fat from the following areas :

  • abdomen
  • saddlebags
  • thighs
  • inner side of the knees
  • hips
  • legs (calf and ankle) and arms.

However, it should be noted that liposuction produces better results on firm skin. Indeed, a toned and elastic skin is put back in place more quickly.

How is the intervention carried out?

Liposuction is usually performed under local anesthesia. Depending on the area to be treated and the amount of fat to be removed, the duration of the procedure varies from one to three hours.

The technique consists in introducing under the skin, through small incisions, more or less thick probes by which the fat is sucked.

Healing is quite quick. However, it will be necessary to wear a sleeve in the treated areas 24 hours a day, for a period of two to four weeks.
