An Aesthetic Surgery but not like the Others
Liposuction is an aesthetic procedure invented by Dr. Yves Gerry Illouz in 1977. This technique is an effective solution to eliminate fatty deposits that do not disappear after a diet, sports activities, or weight loss.
The areas treated with liposuction are: tummy, breeches, hips, thighs, knee, calves, ankles, arms, back etc. As a result, this technique does not have a weight loss objective and does not seek to treat obesity, but to have a beautiful coherent silhouette.
Indeed, the principle of liposuction is very simple, it consists of injecting through small incisions small tubes to aspirate excess fat cells located in a well-defined area. The duration of this operation is very short compared to other aesthetic operations, between 20 minutes and 1 hour, with one night of hospitalization.

The purpose of liposuction is not weight loss but body remodeling. It is usually performed on well-defined areas and not all over the body. This is not a radical solution but an intervention that would present few risks and might not lead to any kind of discomfort during the recovery, if it was performed correctly. Liposuction is not effective for people who are unable to control their weight through diets and physical activity.
In general, unless you want to have unnecessary risks, no more than 5-6 liters of fat are sucked during an operation.
The pain of liposuction is due to the action of the cannula which eliminates a portion of the panniculus adiposus. The pain is similar to that of a contusion and it is limited to the peripheral part of the operated area and easily relieved with simple painkillers. It is important to follow the directions given after the intervention:
- Never use drugs not prescribed (risk of ingesting painkillers that promote bleeding).
- Wear the appropriate containment sheaths.
- Undergo lymphatic drainage massages to control the edema.
Normally those suffering from localized fat deposits have more areas to be remodeled. Therefore, it is absolutely frequent that during liposuction our doctors intervene on several parts of the body. This allows you to have only one operation that is able to improve the body profile. In addition, the liposuction of several areas at the same time saves the patient a lot of money.
The only scars that appear after liposuction are those caused by incisions that allow cannulas to reach fat deposits. As a result, they are really small in size because they are just a few millimeters. In general, the surgeons determine where to apply them so that they can treat a larger area through the same incision. Then, they will try to make sure that the incisions are masked by the skin folds. In any case, they are so small and thin that they become invisible in a short period of time.
The term fight is appropriate as it is undeniable that liposuction helps to get rid of the effect of cellulite. However, the intervention is not effective in terms of healing because it does not solve the problem at the pathological level.
