Plastic surgery is the ideal speciality for remodelling or harmonising the body´s shape. The techniques most frequently used for this purpose are liposuction and abdominoplasty – either alone or in combination.
This technique consists of the removal of fat from the body by suction via fine tubes introduced through small incisions. With this method, fat is removed without the need for skin resection which means that there is no visible scarring. One of the great advantages of liposuction is that various areas can be treated in the same intervention, with the result of a more slender overall body shape.
