Women and men who are not overweight but have topical fat that they cannot get rid of through diet and exercise, are good candidates for liposuction. Liposuction can be also effective for cellulite through the sophisticated lipo-dissection. Liposuction can be effective on many areas of the body: arms, abdomen, hips, thighs, calves, ankles and under the chin.
We will assess the tone and the elasticity of your skin and may ask you how areas of localized fat were affected by weight loss in the past. Under oral sedation and through tiny incisions, small cannulas are inserted to anesthetize the adipose tissue by topical anesthesia using the Tumescent technique (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2179348); the fat will be melted by laser (smart lipo, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3140909/) and be removed using vibo-liposuction (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12016496). The high definition liposuction (high def lipo, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29878992) sculpts your body while removes fat, giving the definition of an athletic figure. The cutting edge technique is the "Reverse Aging High Def Lipo" combining high def lipo and cell tissue regeneration.
Butt augmentation has amazing results when the liposuction is combined with lipofiling at the buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift/BBL, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6212238/); if the patients have no fat at all, silicone implants can give alternatively nice shape to the buttocks.
Unusual complications include bleeding, infection or reaction to anesthesia. Skin numbness is to be expected and is usually only temporary. Irregularities and laxity can occur that's why you have to wear garments for the first weeks postop in order your tissues to "learn" their new shape.
You can usually return to work in 4 days, though you may still have some swelling and bruising which usually subsides within a couple of weeks.
