Liposcupting is a procedure in which body fat is extracted using cannulas, through very small incisions. Results are immediately evident and in the adequate patient, long lasting. The surgery can be performed under local, regional o general anesthesia, depending on the case. Recovery time, specific care and costs largely depend on each specific case, mainly determined by the number of areas to treat and the amount of fat removed. Liposuction is a very safe procedure when performed by the right team of professionals in a secure hospital environment.
Frequently the fat removed is used to augment other body areas (i.e. buttocks).
