Liposuction

BENEFITS OF LIPOSUCTION

 

Liposuction is a highly popular technique for fat removal. It is a safe and minimally invasive surgery that provides highly rewarding and satisfying results. Dr. Antún’s extensive experience in cosmetic surgery allows him to personalize each treatment according to the individual needs and aesthetic desires of each patient. The benefits of liposuction include:

 

  • Permanent removal of fat from the targeted area

  • Minimally invasive and effective results

  • Small incisions can be hidden, resulting in minimal scarring

  • Provides beautiful contouring to targeted areas

  • Immediate and noticeable results 

  • Improves confidence and comfort in clothing

  • Minimal downtime and relatively quick recovery

RECOVERY AFTER LIPOSUCTION

Immediately after the procedure, you may experience swelling, bruising, or mild soreness around the treatment area, which can be easily managed with medication. You will also be fitted with a compression garment or elastic bandages to help control swelling and compress the skin, allowing it to conform to the new contours. Dr. Antún will inform you of all aftercare requirements, including how to care for the surgical site and particular medications, to ensure the area heals effectively. Depending on how the area is recovering, most patients can return to work within one to two weeks of the surgery but should avoid strenuous physical activity during this time. Dr. Antún and his team of dedicated, highly trained aestheticians will also schedule follow-up appointments to assess how your body is adapting to the new contour and how the treatment site is healing.

 

Pair this treatment with Brazilian Butt Lift or Fat Grafting

 

Liposuction can be performed as a single procedure or in conjunction with other complementary treatments. Depending on your aesthetic goals, you may consider combining liposuction with the Brazilian Butt Lift, which is performed to lift and reshape the buttocks using the body’s natural fat. Dr. Antún can combine these treatments to significantly improve the body’s curves and aesthetic contour. The result can enhance and shape your physique to create a slimmer, well-toned appearance.

WHAT IS LIPOSUCTION? 

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or lipectomy, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses a thin tube, or cannula, to break up and suction unwanted pockets of fat from the body. This procedure helps to contour and refine areas of the body that have not responded to diet and exercise. Despite eating healthy and incorporating regular exercise into your lifestyle, it can be almost impossible to shift stubborn fat deposits that have formed due to age, hereditary conditions, pregnancy, hormone changes, or weight fluctuations. Liposuction is an excellent and highly effective cosmetic procedure that aims to trim your physique for a slimmer, more attractive appearance. Schedule your liposuction consultation with Miami’s leading cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Rafael Antún.

WHAT AREAS CAN WE TREAT?

Liposuction is a highly advanced surgical procedure that can remove pockets of fat from various areas of the body. It has been performed successfully on millions of patients around the world, and has an amazing track record of safety when performed by an experienced cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Antún. In a single procedure, you can address a single area of concern, or simultaneously target multiple regions to reveal a smoother, shapelier figure. The most common areas of treatment include:

 

  • Stomach (abdomen)

  • Back

  • Buttocks

  • Chest

  • Hips

  • Thighs

  • Arms

  • Flanks, or sides

CANDIDATES FOR LIPOSUCTION

 

Since liposuction is not actually meant to be used as a weight loss procedure, patients should already be within 25 percent of their ideal weight. Liposuction is a highly suitable treatment option for men and women seeking to shift stubborn pockets of fat that are unaffected by diet and exercise. Candidates should be physically healthy and seeking to refine and contour particular areas of the body rather than lose weight. Liposuction is not recommended for anyone suffering from illness or severe medical conditions, such as heart disease, weakened immune system, blood flow problems, or diabetes. 

ABOUT THE PROCEDURE

 

The details of the procedure will depend on your current condition, concerns and aesthetic goals, which will be discussed in detail during your first consultation with Dr. Antún, where he will determine the most suitable treatment method. Depending on the type and extent of surgery required, you will receive either local or general anesthesia before surgery. Once you are comfortable, small incisions will be placed in discreet locations to allow for minimal, less visible scarring. A cannula will then be inserted between the skin and muscle tissue, where the targeted pocket of fat will be loosened and suctioned out of the area using a vacuum. Depending on the amount of fat removed and the size of the incisions, sutures or stitches will be used to close the area. The permanent removal of fat deposits will result in a slimmer, more proportioned physique.
