Balance beyond aesthetics

Liposuction is a surgical intervention that has the purpose of eliminating fat excess with the help of subcutaneously localized suction. It can be done to the face, neck, arms, abdomen, thighs or calves.

The surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia and it can take from 1 up to 3 hours, depending on its complexity. It consists in very small and thin incisions, through which the fat is being extracted with the help of cannulas connected to a vacuum. Post-operatory pain depends on the removed quantity and on the treated areas, but usually patients don’t complain about the pain, they mostly complain about numbness and dizziness.

It is necessary to wear a compressive bandage up to 4 weeks. Afterwards, for another 2 weeks, the bandage must be worn during night. The bruises need approximately 2 weeks for healing. It is recommended to avoid physical effort in the first weeks post-operatory.
