Dr Puig explains in this video what liposuction or liposculpture is.
What is liposuction-liposculpture?
Many of us, to a greater or lesser degree, though we are in good health and in good physical condition, have a figure somewhat disproportionate, due to the localized accumulation of fat in any part of our body. The appearance of these unsightly “michelines” or fat deposits, can be due to several causes like the genetics of each person, lack of weight control… The liposuction or liposculpture will allow us to give a new shape to specific areas of the body, improving our figure or body contour and consequently our image.
Liposculpture, liposuction or simply “lipo” is a surgical procedure, which allows remodeling the body contour is specific areas by removing excess fat deposits, extracting adipocytes (fat cells) from the points in which they are located, obtaining excellent results. Through liposuction we can extract fat from various body areas that, despite exercising or diets, have not improved: buttocks, hips, thighs, abdomen and waist, knees, upper arms, back, etc.
During the consultation we will study, in addition to the location and quantity of fat to remove, the sagging and quality of the skin, and also other personal factors related to your health, if you smoke, medications, eating habits, etc.
This surgical operation can be performed alone or at the same time with other plastic surgery procedure, such a tummy tuck, breast reduction, breast augmentation….
What is not liposuction?
The intervention or operation of liposuction is not the appropriate treatment for obesity, nor is it intended to be the substitute for an appropriate diet of exercise. In the same way, it is not the treatment that we must do in the event that we want to eliminate cellulite.
Who is a good candidate for liposculpture?
In general we can say that the ideal person or a good candidate for this intervention is one that:
- Is physically healthy.
- It has realistic expectations of what can be achieved with the intervention.
- Is non-smoker or at least quit when the surgeon tells to.
- Areas with fat deposits cause trully discomfort and worry.
Liposuction or liposculpture, as well as any other plastic surgery, is a very personal procedure and therefore the person who is thinking about it, should do it by itself, not to satisfy the wishes of another person, or to try to adapt to any kind of ideal image. The decision is very personal, and you must decide whether the benefits of the procedure will match your goals, as well as whether the risks and potential complications of cosmetic surgery are acceptable.

During the same we will evaluate:
- The surgical goals of the liposuction intervention.

In addition, we will evaluate your general health status, pre-existing health conditions or risk factors, take photographs, discuss the most appropriate options to achieve your goals, the existence of other non-surgical alternatives, as well as the possible results of the removal of deposits of fat located in the zone or areas to be treated.
The success and safety of the procedure depends to a large extent on the complete sincerity during your consultation. You will be asked a series of questions about your health, desires and lifestyle.
It is very important to understand all aspects of this operation. It is natural to feel some anxiety, whether it is emotion because of your new look or a little preoperative stress. Do not be shy about talking about these feelings with your plastic surgeon.
