About Micro Lipo / Lipo
Liposuction allows the radical and definitive removal of localised fat. Its best indication is the removal of those locations impossible to modify despite a good diet and regular physical exercise. On the other hand, liposuction does not constitute a method to become thinner and its goal is not to control the patient’s weight nor act as a treatment of obesity.
Liposuction (developed in 1977 for Yves-Gerard ILLOUZ), consists of the aspiration of fat through very thin tubes inserted through small incisions. The tube is connected to a pump producing negative pressure, allowing a uniform suction. Fat cells do not have the faculty to multiply, thus the result is definitive. In practice, liposuction can be applied to a great number of areas of the body: the “love handles”, hips, the abdomen, thighs, knees, calves, ankles and arms. Its technical improvements also have made it possible to extend its action to the level of the face and the neck (double chin, oval of the face).
