Liposculpture is the term given to the technique used to sculpt your figure, eliminating localized fat deposits and making a liposuction in areas determined in the diagnosis to improve the silhouette..

How is liposculpture performed?

It is performed by introducing a cannula under the dermis through very small incisions to make a liposuction of the abdomen, later this extracted fat is infiltrated in another area of the body to improve the contour. The technique will be selected by the surgeon depending on the area to be treated and the specific objectives of each patient.

The most common areas to extract fat are:


Back and thorax




The results of liposculpture are long lasting or permanent if the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle.
