Liposculpture is a technique that combines liposuction and
fat grafting. Its goal is to make use of the fat which is
removed from saddle bags, love handles, waist and posterior
thigh to remodel other areas, such as the side depression
of the buttocks and the inner thigh. The results are very
natural and gratifying.
As in liposuction, the only cares that a patient should have
before the surgery are: avoid medications based on acetylsalicylic
acid (i.e.: aspirin), for the 10 days that precede the surgery
and use antiseptic soap on the 72 hours prior to the surgery.
The resulting scars are innermost, and measure less than half
a centimeter. The patient is hospitalized for 24 hours, but
rest is advised for the first seven days. The stitches are
removed after 5 or 7 days. Physical exercises should be avoided
for one month, but after 15 days the patient can go for walks,
and can also receive specific massage and lymphatic drainage
as indicated by the doctor, to be performed on the areas that
were indicated by the doctor, and 6 months later also in the
area where there was fat grafting. For better results it is
important that the grafted area is not compressed with elastic
bands. Exposure to the sun must be limited for at least one
month to one and a half month, that is, until there are no
more hematomas, something that normally occurs after the first
month is over.
