Liposuction / Liposculpture and Fat transfer / Lipofilling

Liposculpture: This simple procedure, also known as liposuction when referring to specific areas of the body, allows for the reduction of accumulated fat that occurs in some areas of the body. The most common areas are the hips, thighs, abdomen, below the chin (double chin) or arms. This can be done at any age, although the best results are achieved when the skin still retains a degree of elasticity. Dr. Javier Collado usually warns his patients that they should not consider liposculpture as an intervention for thinning, given that it does not involve reducing the patient’s weight; instead, it reduces the accumulated fat that usually occurs in people with a normal weight who do not respond to diets. Liposculpture can be performed together with other interventions.

Fat transfer, lipofilling or liposculpture: this procedure consists of the removal of fat from the areas of the body where there is usually too much of it and using that fat to be introduced into other areas. Dr. Javier Collado processes the extracted fat according to Coleman’s protocol, through centrifugation, and then it may be introduced into other areas of the body where the volume is to be increased or congenital or acquired deformities are to be corrected. The areas where fat is most commonly introduced through grafting are the cheekbones, nasal-labial folds, gluteus muscles or breasts. Thus, the patient’s own fat is used as material for permanent filling. We should warn you that there is usually an amount of the fat that is reabsorbed.

Preguntas Frecuentes

Am I a good candidate for the intervention?

Liposuction is specifically recommended to people with a normal weight and isolated areas of accumulated fat. These areas, in comparison to the rest of the body, are disproportionate. These localised areas are almost always hereditary and the fat is not removed with diets or exercise, therefore, the only way to combat this fat is with liposuction.

Although liposuction can be done at any age, the best results are achieved if the skin still has sufficient elasticity to recover its shape after the intervention.

If the skin is inelastic, as happens in the case of older patients, it will be necessary to remove it if it does not readapt to the new shape.

Liposuction should not be considered appropriate by people who are overweight or as a solution for cellulitis. There are other more appropriate treatments for improving these problems.

Liposuction may be performed on different areas of the body at the same time and may also be done alongside other surgical interventions.

How long do the results last for?

The liposuction results are permanent, as long as you keep your post-operative weight. Even if you gain a few kilos, you will notice that the weight will be distributed around your body, instead of the areas where it used to accumulate.

What does the procedure of fat transfer or lipofilling consist of?

It involves the use of fatty cells, previously part of the patient’s body, through grafting to remodel facial structures such as cheekbones, labial cheeks, nasogenian folds, gluteal muscles or breasts or other body areas altered by scars, malformations or previous surgery.
