Liposculpture / Body molding surgery
A defined, toned and profiled silhouette is considered a symbol of strength and youth and is associated with personal, professional and social success. Excesses of fat are often considered unhealthy and aesthetically unacceptable and often can not be eliminated by diet nor with physical exercise.
Liposuction allows molding the body contour and improve the figure by removing this unwanted fat. In this procedure fat is extracted from the body through cannulas that are connected to a suction system, being the most commonly performed procedure by plastic surgeons worldwide due to the high satisfaction rate on the part of patients. There are three types of liposuction; conventional liposuction, laser liposuction (lipolaser) and liposuction with ultrasound.
In some patients the fat that was removed in liposuction can be used to be placed in regions that need an augmentation, such as the buttocks and hips, thus shaping the figure, which is known as liposculpture.
