Liposuction is not a method to lose weight! This is a method of sculpting the body. Through it, certain parts of the body are formed by removing the accumulated fat deposits, improving the proportions and contour. Liposuction can be performed together with other procedures of cosmetic surgery such as lifting, breast reduction in gynecomastia, abdominoplasty.
Liposuction is a method of contouring the body by destroying and aspirating adipose tissue from areas with increased fat accumulation. It is also called liposculpture. The operation is performed with the help of special tools called cannulas, which are connected to the aspiration system. Through them, fat is broken down and removed from the body. When a large amount of adipose tissue is aspirated from one area, tightening belts or tights are placed to help the skin adapt to the new contours. The method is also used successfully to remove subcutaneous tumors from adipose tissue called lipomas.
Lipofilling is the injection of one's own adipose tissue in order to increase the volume of external organs, fill in wrinkles or areas of the body with reduced relief.
