LIPOLISIS, J PLASMA, LIPOESCULTURA AND LIPOSUCCION
What does liposuction mean?
It consists of eliminating fat from the body through a suction cannula by means of a device that aspirates with negative pressure (liposuctor). The surgical procedure will be performed by the plastic and cosmetic surgeon César Fernández since he has experience performing this procedure.
Liposuction is a plastic surgery (or also popularly called cosmetic surgery). The plastic and cosmetic surgeon César Fernández removes excess fat from the tissue to reduce the volume and thus have a better body shape and also improves the irregular contours of the leather. Also called body contouring.
Liposuction is used to mold and decrease the volume of body areas. The plastic and cosmetic surgeon César Fernández performs a liposuction in areas such as the double chin, cheeks, arms, breasts, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees. It is also possible to perform an HD (high definition) or FHD (full high definition) liposuction that marks the grooves and shadows of the abdomen.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that has risks and generates pain in the postoperative period.In liposuction there may be serious complications or in rare fatal cases. You should always have a voluntary consent of the patient to undergo this surgery.
What are the types of procedures for liposuction?
Tumescent liposuction (liquid injection): it is the most performed type. The plastic and cosmetic surgeon César Fernández injects a good amount of saline solution with lidocaine or epinephrine into the liposuction areas before removing the fat. This decreases pain and bleeding, reducing risks and complications. Lidocaine helps numb the tissue during and after the operation.Adrenaline reduces blood loss, bruising and edema. The tumescent solution allows to extract fat safely. It is extracted along with the fat. Then, the plastic surgeon César Fernández performs a liposuction, which can last from 1 to 4 hours. Surgery time may increase if it is associated with other procedures.
The super wet technique is similar to tumescent liposuction. The difference is that very little tumescent fluid is used in surgery. The amount of liquid that is injected is equal to the amount of fat that will be extracted. This technique is shorter. They may bleed more or have more pain after surgery.
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (LAU) uses ultrasound that generates energy to destroy fat cells in the liquid. After passing the ultrasound, the fat can be liposuctioned. This surgery can be performed in two ways: external (on the skin) or internal (within the skin tissue, with the help of a small cannula that emits energy). The plastic and cosmetic surgeon César Fernández uses this technique in very fibrotic areas or patients with a history of liposuction, also in the back or gynecomastia in men. This technique is often used in combination with the tumescent technique. This procedure may take more surgical time because it is necessary to perform the ultrasound before, the surgery lasts from 2 hours to 5 hours.
Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL) uses laser energy to liquefy fat. Once the cells are liquefied, they can be lipoaspirated. This surgery is performed in 2 surgical times, the laser is first performed and then lipoaspirated with a cannula. The plastic and cosmetic surgeon César Fernández uses them in patients with fibrosis or who have had previous liposuctions. It can be used anywhere on the body. One of the advantages of using the laser is that it stimulates the production of collagen, thickens the dermis and retracts the skin.
Liposuction combined with Jay Plasma (J plasma): it consists of a conventional liposuction and then uses J-Plasma ® to generate a greater amount of skin retraction, it is an advanced energy modality that combines the unique properties of the helium plasma it generates patented radio frequency waves. This allows to obtain a greater contour of the body and in a few weeks you can see the results of liposuction.

Before the procedure
Before the surgery, a good medical history, your reasons for surgery, a physical exam and taking measurements of your body will be done in the office. The doctor will explain the procedure, its risks and the possible risks of liposuction. After making a voluntary decision to undergo surgery, you will sign an informed voluntary consent for liposuction and make full payment for the surgery before surgery. It may be necessary to take someone, as your partner, as a witness.

Understand that liposuction can improve your appearance and self-esteem, but it probably won’t provide you with an ideal body. After liposuction, you may need diet or exercise to maintain what you achieved in the surgical room.
Before consulting with the anesthesiologist, it may be necessary to perform partial urine, blood count, pregnancy test, or other pre-surgical tests, and allow the medical team to rule out diseases that can complicate your surgery and your postoperative period.
Always go to the operating room accompanied, you will need someone to take you home after surgery.
How is the postoperative period of liposuction?
Indications after liposuction?
After the procedure
Liposuction may or may not require hospitalization, depending on the amount of fat removed, the time of surgery and estimated bleeding, or any other complications that have arisen in the procedure. Liposuction should be performed in a properly accredited operating room and with trained, qualified and trained personnel to perform the surgery.
After liposuction, bandages and girdles are applied to maintain pressure in the area to decrease swelling (edema) and stop any bleeding, as well as to help preserve the shape acquired in the operating room. The girdle is used for several weeks.
Does liposuction leave scars?
Leave a very small scar where the cannula is inserted.
Does liposuction generate pain?
What indications does the plastic surgeon give you?
