Liposuction in Tijuana is a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to eliminate fat from certain areas of the body, such as the hips, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, neck or arms. Liposuction also contours these areas. Other names for liposuction include lipoplasty and body contouring.
This procedure can be used to shape areas below the chin, neck, cheekbones, upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves, and ankles.
Liposuction is not commonly considered a weight-loss method or a weight-loss option. If you suffer from being overweight, you are likely to lose more weight through diet and exercise or if that does not work, through bariatric procedures such as gastric bypass surgery, than you would with liposuction.
Liposuction in Tijuana is recommended for people who have too much body fat in specific spots but also have a stable body weight.
Liposuction is used to remove fat from areas of the body that haven’t responded to diet and exercise, such as the:
For this surgery, a liposuction machine and special instruments called cannulas are used. The surgical team first prepares the area to be operated on and administers regional anesthesia. Through a small incision in the skin, a suction tube with a sharp tip is inserted into the fat deposits and a sweep is made through the area where the fat is to be removed. The released fat is “sucked up” with a suction tube. A suction pump or a large syringe is used to perform the suction. Multiple skin punctures may be needed to treat large areas.
The surgeon can approach the areas to be treated from several different directions to achieve the best silhouette.
As with any important surgery, liposuction in Tijuana carries risks, such as bleeding and a reaction to anesthesia. We are going to explain some of the risks that may be presented during or after the surgery:
Is the build-up of fluid in the body’s tissue. Most commonly, the legs or arms are affected. The accumulation of fluid must be drained with a needle.
There is a small possibility of skin infection. In this case, it has to be controlled quickly, because a mistreated skin infection may be life-threatening.
Lost, reduced, or altered sensation and tingling are types of temporary paresthesia. This puts pressure on nerves and blood vessels, reducing sensation.
The skin may appear bumpy, wavy or withered due to uneven fat removal, poor skin elasticity and unusual healing. These changes may be permanent and the skin will lack smoothness.
The risk of complications grows if the surgeon is working on larger surfaces of your body or doing several procedures during the same operation.
Liposuction is not appropriate in the following cases:
The recovery time of these alterations can be tremendously shortened if massages and or ultrasound therapy is performed after the procedure.
Following the liposuction in Tijuana, swelling normally subsides within a few weeks. By this time, the treated area should look less bulky. Within a few months, expect the treated area to have a leaner and smooth appearance.
It is absolutely normal for skin to lose some firmness over time but liposuction results are generally long lasting as long as the patient maintains their weight. If the patient gains weight after liposuction, the fat distribution may change and it is possible that the fat may accumulate in the treated areas.
