Lipoaspiration can significantly and permanently remove the localised fat excesses which generally remain despite a diet and/or physical exercise.
In practice, lipoaspiration can be carried out in many areas around the body :
- Flabby buttocks
- Face and neck (double chin, oval shape of the face).
The principle of lipoaspiration orliposuction is to introduce, from tiny incisions, round-tipped, blunt, foam will be connected to a closed circuit within which a negative pressure will be created.
This will enable the harmonious and non-traumatic aspiration of the excessive fat cells.
Recent cannulas, perforated with several holes at their end. These cannulas progress, including in the superficial liposuction field, has, thanks to the use of extra thin cannulas, prevented any lipoaspiration damage to the skin under the treated area. On the contrary, the aspect of the skin can be improved by the skin retraction generated by a superficial lipoaspiration correctly carried out.
Since fat cells cannot multiply, this overpopulation of adipocytes will not be repeated. As a result, for patients moderately or fairly overweight, liposuction/ lipoaspiration can presently be considered as a mean to stabilise weight or even lose it (with a similar food intake).
But it must be carefully noted that liposuction is not a treatment for obesity (BMI = Weight/height² superior to 35)
In this way, a correctly carried-out lipoaspiration will not do away with the need for a healthier lifestyle.
