Liposuction is a medical technique that dissolves surplus and accumulated fat in determined parts of the body (abdomen, hips, arms, back, face, waist…) so as to later extract it through a cannula using a suction effect.
The classic technique involves the extraction of fat through a cannula using a mechanic movement.
Currently, laser is used to eliminate the fat. The heat from the light emitted by the device dissolves the fat and this is extracted through a cannula that is much thinner than the one used in traditional liposuction, or also using a syringe.
This new technique has allowed us to reduce the trauma and bleeding, improve the retraction of the skin and not damage the stem cells so that they can be used as filling for other parts of the body (buttocks, breasts…) For example, liposuction of the back and flanks (love handles) can be performed and this fat transferred to the buttocks to get a more feminine curve.
With regard to this, the team of specialists in liposuction at Antiaging Group Barcelona (Spain) opts for a combination of various techniques to get the best results. As well as the laser technique, radio frequency can be combined with it to treat flaccidity and cellulite. Liposuction can also be combined with other surgical techniques such as face lifting, abdominal surgery (tummy tuck) and muscle lifting to tighten relaxed skin and support structures.
The Antiaging Group Barcelona (Spain) Clinic has been chosen as a pioneer group in Spain by Alma Laser, a leading Israeli company in laser technology applied to medicine, to use its lipolaser LIPOLIFE™. It is a new system of radial laser which is used in liposuction and it allows us to separate the fatty tissue without destroying the fat cells. This means the whole procedure is safer, less aggressive and less traumatic for the patient.
Until now when we talked about the lipolaser, we associated it with tissue destruction. But by destroying the cells, in the end, it wasn’t possible to use them to make a graft.
The great advantages of the Lipolife™ laser are:
- Increased safety
- The fatty tissue can be used as a graft in breast augmentation using fat, buttock augmentation or hand rejuvenation.
- It is less traumatic for the tissue and the patient, reducing bleeding.
