Liposuction Surgery in Alicante

Plastic surgery is the speciality par excellence dedicated to remodelling or restoring harmony to the body contour. The liposculpture surgical techniques most frequently used for this purpose, eliminating localised fat from different areas, are liposuction and abdominoplasty, either alone or in combination.

Fat can be removed from the following areas: face and neck, arms, abdomen, buttocks, trunk, hips and thighs, knees, calves and ankles.

What is liposuction?

It is one of the operations most in demand by Spaniards. Around 12,000 liposuctions are performed in Spain every year. Liposuction consists of surgery that suctions the fat through very fine cannulas that are introduced through small incisions. One of the most important advantages of liposuction is that several areas can be treated in the same surgical time, so that at the end of the intervention, we will achieve a slimmer silhouette and a more aesthetic body.

What about liposculpture?

Liposculpture is a more delicate and finer operation to sculpt the body. Unlike liposuction, it is for people who have a lower level of fat in their body.

What type of patients is liposuction recommended for?

People who have a relatively normal weight and who have an excess of localised fat in different areas of the body, are the most indicated to receive this treatment, as they present a firm and elastic skin that will recover sooner and look better after the intervention. More specifically:

Frequently asked questions

What type of anaesthesia is used?

We use local anaesthesia and sedation or general anaesthesia. It depends on the size of the liposuction.

Is the postoperative period after liposuction hard?
In general it is not painful. However, stiffness-like discomfort may occur in the treated areas.

What is the recovery time after liposculpture?

It depends on the type of intervention you have undergone and the size of the treated area. Normally, the patient can return to their daily routine after a few weeks. However, full recovery will take a couple of months.

Will I have to stay in hospital after the operation?

It depends on the extent of the surgery. If your operation is minor, you will not need to stay overnight in hospital (you will be home in two to three hours). If it is a more extensive operation, you will have to stay in hospital for 24 hours.

What is the difference between liposuction and liposculpture?

Liposuction is a surgery to remove excess fat that accumulates in areas of our body.

Liposculpture is used to shape the patient's body, creating a more homogeneous figure.

How much weight is lost?

It must be made clear that liposuction is not an intervention to lose weight. It is a surgery to eliminate the accumulation of fat in certain areas of the body. However, it is possible to lose a few kilos after the operation, although you should be aware that this is not the aim of the operation.

How long does it take for the swelling to subside after liposuction?

The swelling will gradually disappear. The skin will tighten over time. It is therefore advisable to have lymphatic drainage massages and wear a compression garment after the operation.

How long will it take before I can exercise again?

During the first few days you will be able to take gentle walks. As a general rule, after two weeks the body is ready for physical activity without being too strenuous.
