Liposuction is the most common procedure in Plastic Surgery and is performed in cases where improvement is required in one or more areas of the body, in both men and women.

The operation

The liposuction can be applied to areas such as the neck (neck double chin contour), arms, abdomen, inner and outer thighs, buttocks, lateral abdomen (love handles), knees, calf and ankles, etc. Also areas that have not responded to diet and exercise can show significant improvement. Such areas are usually the buttocks and thighs in women and the lower abdomen in men.

The use of pulse movement during liposuction with special equipment is called PAL liposuction. This technology allows us to be able to get better results, greater accuracy and safety.

The evolution of the technique over the years has led to S.A.F.E. or “safe liposuction”.

The removal of large amounts of fat and even in “dangerous” areas is now possible without the fear of creating anomalies on the surface of the area that is suctioned with the

the use of specific equipment and, in particular, the application of a specific protocol.

This particular technique is also used to correct problems from previous liposuction procedures that left rippled surfaces, dents and lumps.

S: separatation (isolation of fat)
A: Aspiration
FE: Fat equalization (fat equalization)


The treatment of permanent local thickness is the main indication of liposuction.

The use of special equipment and new techniques now allows us to create “muscle details” and give “definition/etching”. In this way we can change both the shape of the body contour and the overall image of the body.


After infiltration with a liquid that helps the fat to be sucked out more easily, small, thin cannulas are inserted through small incisions (5-8 mm) in the skin. By placing the cannula in the right position and at the right level and with the appropriate movements of the surgeon, fat is sucked out of the accumulated areas (fat deposits).


Liposuction can be combined with other aesthetic procedures such as abdominoplasty, breast reduction/lift/lift, as well as body or facial fat transfer procedures

Information about the operation


Usually as an outpatient. No hospitalization is required.

It may take from 3 to 6 months to fully assess the result depending on the degree of liposuction. Some benefits are immediately apparent.


Variable, depending on the degree and area of liposuction. You may need to take an oral painkiller for about 3-5 days.

Special protection for after surgery

The patient will need a compression bra and will need to wear it for 2-6 weeks after surgery.

Suture removal

All stitches are absorbable.

No drainage pipe.


There are no restrictions on the patient’s daily activities. You can shower the same day after surgery.

The days of absence from work depend on the degree of liposuction. Usually the return is immediate while in more extensive liposuction it may take 2-5 days.


The patient will be seen in the clinic the 1st week after surgery and then at 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months or whenever necessary.

High Definition Liposuction

Liposuction with the creation of a “curvature” of the underlying muscles (High Definition Liposuction)

This category of liposuction combines PAL liposuction (Power Assisted Liposuction) with the use of special technologies such as radiofrequency (RFassited definition).

The basic principles of liposuction remain the same except that after careful and detailed preoperative planning we can “reveal” and “tone” the muscles in the area. The procedure is more time-consuming than a classic liposuction but the results are much more impressive!

The use of ultrasound can give even more “sharpness” to the surgical result and give it more duration and naturalness.
