Liposuction surgery for Women

For many women who lose weight and exercise regularly is very difficult to remove some fat deposits in your body. Also difficult to leave the fat deposits that are created during pregnancy and after delivery remain. Liposuction ( Liposculpture body technique ) helps eliminate these areas of fat and reshape specific areas of the body. Liposuction should not be used as a tool to lose weight because it is not appropriate within the limits in a removal of fat, but psychologically can help in the effort to lose.

The best candidate for liposuction is a woman of relatively normal weight who have excess fat in certain areas of the body, and a firm, elastic skin that will lead to a better final contour after liposuction. The sagging skin is not always readjusts itself to the new contours and may require additional surgical techniques to remove and tighten excess skin.

Typical for performing liposuction areas in women include:

  • Abdomen:  in patients with good skin elasticity ( regardless of age ) can remove accumulated grease with good results.
  • GroomingYou can remove excess fat that occur in obesity.
  • Hips and buttocksis the most common area for liposuction on a woman. What matters is not removed without but modeling the hip measurement, perform what is called liposculpture. For good skin retraction must aspire very shallow leaving the skin as thin as possible. At the same time the gluteal fold is redefined for a more youthful appearance. For the ” cellulite ” liberation and detachment of the skin is performed, breaking the fibrous septa. Cellulitis causing the orange peel is but an excess of fat between the skin fibrous septa.
  • Knees: You may remove deposits that appear on the inside of the knees.
  • Legs and ankles: it comes to remodeling especially near the ankles which is where some women tend to accumulate fat.
  • Neck and face: treatment of the cheeks, jowls and double chin, and improve the neck angle.
  • Arms: In patients with good skin tone may be the inner part of the arms, without making external scars.
  • Underarm region: the area near the end of the breast is the most frequently treated.
  • Dorsal and lumbar back: especially the bra hook area and above the buttocks.

Sometimes liposuction treatments associated with other cosmetic and plastic surgery in the abdomen ( Abdominoplasty), stretching or lifting the face and neck , and stretching the inner thighs or arms is performed.

Currently Dr. Terrén practiced liposuction Valencia (or liposuction Valencia) with the technique known as vibro – liposuction which favors the elimination of the most stubborn fatty deposits with better skin retraction, and that is the use of a cannulae especially circular vibrating and reciprocating manner, causing an emulsion of fat that is more easily aspirated, less postoperative pain, less bruising and better recovery equipment. These thin cannulas (3-4 mm) are inserted under the skin through small incisions in the folds, and hidden areas if possible. Some of these incisions will be closed with one or two stitches.

The patient can go home after a few hours or, in some cases, stay 1 night in the hospital for proper aftercare. The use of devices or drainage pipes are required.

In the postoperative period may appear bruising, swelling, tenderness, or temporary loss of localized pain. You should also wear a garment of acupressure ( strip or other special garment ) for 3 or 4 weeks after surgery, although you can remove it to sleep from the second week.

Take analgesics to control postoperative pain for a few days.
