Liposuction is an established technique in plastic surgery for the removal of localized fat. The first liposuction in Brazil was performed in 1980, by Frenchman Yves Gerard Illouz at the Hospital Federal dos Servidores do Estado in Rio de Janeiro, a hospital where we, Cristian and Raquel, received our training in Plastic Surgery.
With over 30 years of history and several scientific studies proving its effectiveness, in liposuction, the fat is suctioned out through a cannula connected to a vacuum device, with frequent evolution in techniques and technologies used for this. The maximum amount of fat that can be removed is calculated based on the patient's weight, at most 5-7% of the weight, and up to 40% of the body surface when several regions are treated in a single surgery: abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, saddlebags, arms, and jowls, which we call LIPOSCULPTURE. The body contours become better defined and the fat removed can be placed in other areas (more frequently in the glutes, buttocks) and can be done in association with some other plastic surgeries. The reduction of measurements in liposuction is much greater than that obtained with non-invasive aesthetic treatments and, despite the initial swelling, the results start to appear relatively quickly.
High Definition liposuction, or LipoHD, is a technical evolution of liposuction recommended for patients with an healthy lifestyle, men and women who want a body with more muscle definition. More than removing excess localized fat, this new trend transforms the classic liposuction into a technique that is also focused on defining muscular contours.Learn more
The abdominoplasty and its variant, the mini-abdominoplasty, occupy the third place among the most performed plastic surgeries in Brazil; there are about 80 thousand procedures performed every year. Natural aging, heredity, pregnancy, and weight fluctuations can cause aesthetic and functional changes in the abdomen, making this procedure necessary.Learn more
The gluteal region has the constitutional characteristics of each individual, composed of muscles, adipose tissue (fat), and skin. Each person has a type of composition of the gluteal region, as well as an evolution of local flaccidity with age and after variations in weight and lifestyle (diet and exercise).Learn more
The gluteal region is formed by the constitutional characteristics of each individual, composed of muscles, adipose tissue (fat), and skin. Each person has a type of composition of the gluteal region, as well as an evolution of local flaccidity with age and after variations in weight and lifestyle (diet and exercise).Learn more
Gynecomastia is the enlargement of the mammary gland in men. The excess of the mammary gland can occur due to hormonal imbalance, obesity, use of some medications, among other causes.Learn more
HDL, 4k, HD, Definition are synonyms for high definition liposuction. The technical details for men are different because we respect the musculature and characteristics of the individual. This surgery produces extraordinary results for men with an healthy lifestyle and good workout habits.Learn more
Renuvion is a device with a high capacity to tighten the skin and, thus, reduce flaccidity. It is a very versatile technology with great success in the world of plastic surgeries worldwide. We have such technology at Cplasticabrasilia and the important certification for its use. We often combine it with other technologies, such as Vibrolipo and VaserLipo (used for a liposuction). Our patients who undergo liposuction or High Definition Liposuction can combine Renuvion to improve the quality of the skin (flaccidity treatment), enhancing, even more, their muscle definition. We consider it an excellent combination: High Definition Liposuction (surgical technique) with the application of Renuvion (technology).
Technologies in plastic surgery are in constant evolution and we at CPlástica Brasilia, focusing on body contouring surgeries, are always on the watch. Liposuction has changed a great deal in the last few years and is no longer a surgery just for the removal of localized fat.
Among the technologies in liposuction is the vibration of the cannula used for liposuction, with different brands of vibroliposuction in the market (Ex: vibrolipo or vibrofit) that contribute to reduce surgical damage, the surgeon's effort and the surgery time, bringing more safety to the procedure.
