Liposculpture is a popular choice in Cali and in Colombia to lose weight andannoying fat deposits and body contouring permanently.

Is Liposuction right for me?

Liposculpture is suitable for those who:

  • They are slightly past their ideal weight and feel confident that they can maintain that weight after liposuction.
  • They are unhappy with localized fat deposits resistant to healthy lifestyles.
  • They enjoy good health, both physically and mentally.
  • In addition, candidates for liposuction have a positive image of themselves in general, and realistic expectations about the surgery, ex. seek cosmetic improvement, not perfection.

    Finally, if the liposuction patients have decided to voluntarily perform the procedure.

    Preoperative for Liposuction

    Dr. Elizabeth Ruiz makes all pre-operative recommendations for you to prepare for liposuction.

    Liposuction

    Liposuction is an outpatient procedure under intravenous anesthesia. Rarely, the patient should spend the night in hospital especially if you have large amounts of fat removed or has lipoaspirate in many areas of the body.

    Liposuction can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures such as abdominoplasty or neck lift surgery.

    To start the procedure of liposuction, the plastic surgeon makes several small incisions in the treatment area. Incisions strategically located in areas of the body.

    A tumescent solution composed of an anesthetic, epinephrine and sterile salt water is injected in the area to try to minimize blood loss and bruising. The surgeon then inserts a cannula through the incision, sucking unwanted fat. Many times, it is not needed to close stitches as they are small incisions. If stitches are needed in any incision, absorbable sutures are used. The treated areas are protected with bandages and a compression garment.

    Liposculpture Recovery

    Patients recovering from liposuction can be considered to be out of work or their daily activities four to seven days. During this time, they should get plenty of rest and avoid strenuous activity, including exercise.

    The treated area may be swollen, sore, bruised and numb, but these are normal symptoms and will improve over time. Patients must wear a compression garment on the treated area for several weeks after liposuction, as indicated by Dr. Ruiz.

    The final aesthetic results take six months, as this is the time it takes for any residual swelling to go away.

    During the recovery time you must attend scheduled follow-up visits by Dr. Ruiz, thus the progress and the resumption of normal activities safely can be monitored.

    Results of Liposuction

    Liposuction removes fat cells permanently, so if you gain weight after the procedure is usually not concentrated in the treated area. However, it is important to understand that liposuction does not prevent you from gaining weight. To keep and enjoy your new shape and weight after liposuction, you should adopt new healthy habits such as a proper diet and exercise plan.
