Procedure:

Liposuction in Colombia is typically performed with a combination of general and local anesthesia.  Through tiny incisions in the skin, surgeons use surgical instruments known as cannulas to break up and remove excess pockets of fat.  During liposuction procedures, fat is selectively removed because it is more loosely attached to the body.  Artistic vision and skilled hands are necessary to sculpt beautifully.  Skilled plastic surgeons combine the art and science of liposuction to obtain consistently beautiful results.  Surgical planning and elegant techniques are able to achieve predictable outcomes, and the figure enhancements are often quite dramatic.

Liposuction results in Colombia are permanent. After puberty, we do not create new fat cells. When you gain weight, you expand the fat cells that you already have.  All types of liposuction permanently remove fat cells to improve your body's contour.  Should you gain weight after liposuction, it goes to the fat cells that remain in your body.  With advanced techniques surgeons in Colombia are able to create a shapely silhouette that is long lasting.

Recovery:

This procedure can be completed in just a few hours at an outpatient plastic surgery suite in Colombia.  With modern techniques, swelling and bruising during the recovery period can be minimized.  After surgery, you will need to wear a snug elastic dressing, girdle, or body stocking over the treated area for several weeks.  You will go home after the procedure and rest for at least 24 hours, after which you may gradually increase your activity as tolerated. Two or three days after your procedure you may resume non-strenuous activities.
