Liposuction

Liposuction surgery removes excess deposits of fat to sculpt an improved shape to a patient’s body. While liposuction is best known as a fat removal procedure, it is also one of the best procedures to help a patient refine his or her shape. In fact, cosmetic surgeons often use liposuction to refine the results of other procedures, as no other technique allows for such detailed improvements in body contour.

Lipo 360
Lipo 360 is a revolutionary liposuction procedure that targets all areas of your midsection, including the abdominals, obliques, and lower back. The resulting goal is to have a slimmer waistline with reduced volume in your abdomen as well as other parts of the body such as hips or thighs. The treatment can target not only fat pockets on one side like traditional procedures but also those pesky bulges from multiple angles – even ones you didn’t know existed!
High Definition Lipo
Is the creation of little incisions where Dr. JC Alvarez, the only surgeon that performs this procedure in our clinic, puts in some fluids and removes the excess fat in a more artistic way of doing it. For High Definition Lipo, the doctor follows the “God´s lines” to improve the abdomen, creating a 3-dimensional shape. With this process, you can achieve more definition through your muscles and a better silhouette.
Why have liposuction?
Liposuction is best for reducing localized fat deposits, and the most satisfied patients are typically happy with their new shape. The ideal liposuction patient has localized fat deposits & good skin tone.
Does it help with saggy or loosen skin?

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure and can be safely performed using local anesthesia, intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia, depending on the nature of the procedure. Your cosmetic surgeon will recommend the anesthesia method that is most appropriate for your needs.

The procedure starts with one or more small incisions near the treatment area. A cannula, or thin tube, is inserted through these incisions to lose excess fat beneath the skin. Then, the fat is suctioned out.

Is liposuction right for me?

Both men and women undergo liposuction every year to achieve a variety of different goals. Some patients want to look better in a swimsuit, while others want to find jeans that fit more comfortably. For men, liposuction can often successfully treat gynecomastia. Cosmetic surgeons will often use liposuction to enhance the results of other procedures.

If one or more of the following apply to you, liposuction is an option to consider:

I have excess fat deposits on my hips, belly, thighs, neck, or chest that won’t respond to diet or exercise. Liposuction is excellent for reducing fatty bulges and sculpting a beautifully natural contour to the body.

I feel like certain areas are out of proportion with the rest of my figure. Reducing excess fat on one area of the body can bring it into better balance with your natural features.

I have good skin elasticity – sagging skin is not a problem for me. For optimal results, the skin should have a good enough tone to contract to the body’s new contours.

How does liposuction work?

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure and can be safely performed using local anesthesia, intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia, depending on the nature of the procedure. Your cosmetic surgeon will recommend the anesthesia method that is most appropriate for your needs.

The procedure starts with one or more small incisions near the treatment area. A cannula, or thin tube, is inserted through these incisions to lose excess fat beneath the skin. Then, the fat is suctioned out. The entire procedure can take under an hour or up to 3 hours or longer, depending on the number of areas treated.

How is life after liposuction?

Liposuction has become a popular way to sculpt the body’s shape, and it can be done in a relatively quick time. With today’s advanced liposuction techniques designed to minimize swelling, trauma, and discomfort when performed by qualified surgeons, recovery from this procedure is remarkably quick for many patients who return to work just days after their procedures depending on the physical requirements of their jobs as well as how much fat was removed during surgery. The degree of pain patients experience postoperatively varies among people but most find over-the-counter medication more than enough at managing any soreness which may occur afterward.

The cosmetic surgeons always recommend that patients wear a compression garment for several weeks following surgery. This will help minimize swelling and encourage optimal skin contraction, which is crucial in minimizing scarring after the procedure and helping the healing process. With proper care, scars should fade significantly over the months of healing; many people’s scars are barely visible within 1-year post-procedure.

It is important to maintain a stable weight to obtain the best results after your surgery. Any drastic changes in weight can affect the final look of the body.

​Liposuction is a safe procedure and an excellent option to improve the shape of your body. The best way to decide if lipo may be right for you is to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
