Liposculpture is the world’s most performed plastic and reconstructive surgery. It occurs because, independently of the publicity for “non-invasive” methods, the cost-benefit relationship of this surgical technique is amazing. I speak of liposculpture because we intend to “sculpt” the body, removing fat where it is in excess and place it where it may be missing, for example in the buttocks.

One may never remove more than 5-8% of the total bodily weight because the health of patients is the main concern of my team. Beyond the aesthetic gain, lipoaspirations of the abdominal waist improve the patient’s health. It decreases the intolerance to glicose, arterial hypertension and, if it exists, the patient’s inflammatory state. It is a technique usually performed under local anesthesia and sedation, in ambulatory, unless it is a major liposculpture. Generally, patients must use a compression girdle for 3 to 4 weeks, and perform lymphatic drainages, associated or not to external ultrasounds for 1 to 2 months.
