Liposuction Surgery

At our plastic-surgery clinic we receive 3 very different Liposuction candidate profiles. Some want more sensual curves, others seek a reduction in voluptuousness, others want to appear more feminine and sportive.

In all these cases, we notice an undermined-self-esteem problem, so we always work to address this issue and help through a customized treatment.

Remember: Plastic Surgery is not an end, but a means to achieve what you want!

We suggest you read below and discover what profile you most identify with. Your needs will help pick the type of liposuction surgery to be offered at your appointment.

Liposuction Surgery in Brazil

Objective: Weight Loss

The first family of candidates for Liposuction Surgery is the most common at our office: patients that already have been mothers, or not, and whose extra kilos have gradually built up changing the shape of the body.

It is very common for fat to build up in the back, flanks and abdomen (belly), and sometimes in the legs and arms. It is also common for patients to want fat grafting in the buttocks to correct the volume lost as the years went by.

Objective: Localized-Fat Reduction

The second family of Liposuction Surgery patients is thin, usually without children, who suffered a build-up of fat in the abdomen. In general, they ask for a procedure more restricted to the abdomen, with very little definition, and may opt for small buttock grafts, since these are people with a slimmer biotype and small or medium-sized buttocks.

The shape of the graft changes for them; they are longer to have buttocks in the shape of a heart.

Objective: Body Definition

The third family of patients is composed of people that work out a lot and have little body fat, usually youngsters that haven’t had kids (and don’t intend to). They want a lot of body definition, an hourglass shape and the maximum removal of fat possible.

Buttock grafts vary from medium to large, according to the level of fat absorption that took place working out or with the use of hormones. It is common for them to ask for a graft on the side of the hips to correct a local depression, frequent in this location.

Important information

1. We no longer use traditional Liposuction, there is more modern equipment to break down the fat
2. Besides removing fat, we grant more firmness to the skin using specific equipment and protocols
3. Our patients do not experience post-op pain

Technologies used in Liposuction Surgery

We always use some technology during Liposuction surgery. In other words, we don’t do the old liposuction technique using only cannulas anymore. It is common for us to indicate power-assisted liposuction (or vibroliposuction), ultrasonic lipo (RENUVION) and ONE-STEP LASER lipo, each one with its specific indication, such as skin retraction, secondary or tertiary lipo, the use of fat to augment another area, achieve muscle definition, etc.

Did you know that the best liposuction outcomes are obtained in patients with a BMI (body-mass index) of up to 28%?

What if my BMI is over 28%, will I be able to operate soon?

In high-BMI cases, don’t worry!

We focus solely on helping you with your transformation. If you’re overweight, we’ll have an appointment and order the pre-op exams just the same.

The difference is that we will refer you to our nutritional-guidance program focused on fat loss, muscle mass gain and skin firmness. It will probably take 3 to 5 months to reach a good BMI, but don’t you worry, the outcomes will be much better after going through our program.

High-Definition Liposuction (HDL)

High-definition liposuction surgery is indicated for those patients that, despite the heavy work outs and being in the ideal weight, face difficulties defining their musculature. The focus for HD liposuction in the abdomen is to enhance the shape of the muscles.

Abdominal HD Liposuction is a refined liposuction technique that besides removing excess localized fat, also enhances abdominal muscles and the lines between them. It is common for us to talk about modeling the abs, if that is what you want.

High-definition liposuction surgery is characterized by the combination of hydroliposuction and superficial liposuction, which means that the surgeon strategically aspirates a certain amount of body fat, enhancing the natural contours, to show not only the body contour but the muscle groups as well, in men and women.

With the abdominal HD lipo technique the surgeon develops such a body definition that it will enhance the musculature, seeking a more harmonious and natural effect. Besides the belly, HDL is ideal to enhance the back, chest, arm, thigh and gluteus muscles.

Medium or Low-Definition Liposuction (anatomical)

This is a solution we found for many people that workout a little, want to be thinner and a little more well defined, but are afraid of artificial or excessively-masculine outcomes with too much definition.

We mixed the concepts described above and reduced a lot the degree of muscle definition, that is, we reinforce only 3 discrete vertical abdominal lines: the median line above the navel and the two grooves between the muscles (semilunar lines; also linea seminulares or Spegelian line) that run about 6 cm to the side of the navel. These low-definition concepts are also used in our abdominoplasty.

We can also incorporate this low-definition concept in the arms, back and even the thighs. In other words, we can perform liposuction using some technology to destroy the fat. Then, we can delicately and discretely sculpt a few lines that will make you slimmer.

Finally, we will use some other technology, such as Renuvion (Plasma blast with radiofrequency) or ONE STEP Laser, to firm your skin.

High-Definition Liposuction with Fat Grafting Inside the Muscle.

The best-known fat graft is in the gluteal region, to increase the buttocks. Few people know this, but it’s possible to inject fat inside the muscle so it looks stronger. If you work out a lot and are seeking to not only eliminate certain points of fat but to hypertrophy certain muscle groups as well, keep an eye out because Medicine is always evolving.

This may be a great strategy for you!

Nowadays we can inject fat into the following muscles:

1. Trapezius
2. Deltoid
3. Biceps
4. Triceps
5. Pectoral
6. Abdominal rectus
7. External oblique
8. Vastus medialis
9. Vastus lateralis

We always use the ultrasound device to guide our grafting. We have noticed a great
evolution at every medical congress and new benefits should appear in coming years.

Post-Op: You will be discharged from the hospital the day following the surgery.

We always send a nurse and a physiotherapist to the hospital to tend to you on the day following the procedure, before being discharged.

Physical therapy focuses on a quick recovery, relief of the symptoms, avoidance of edemas and ecchymoses and good healing. The session with this professional in the hospital lasts up to 90 minutes.

Our nurse will instruct you for your best recovery!

With your comfort in mind, we will give you important instructions for when you are home, such as drinking a lot of liquids, not touching the dressings (they don’t have to be changed), using a compression garment and when to come back for a new appointment.

In general, our patients do not experience pain.

Pos-op cares:

The use of Tapping, Ozonetherapy, compression belts and splints to better mark the curves and achieve well-defined lines will be explained during an appointment with Dr. Alexandre. We like giving our patients two booklets, pre and post-op. This way you will already know what to expect and what you have to do to reach your (our) objectives.

Liposuction surgery results should not be considered definitive before 6 months after the surgery. Lymphatic drainage, performed by a qualified and experienced professional, is essential for the disappearance of the edema and to avoid fibrosis formation.

How to Have a Procedure Done In Brazil?

Brazilian Plastic Surgery is very well-known around the globe. This started to happen with the work done by Dr. Ivo Pitanguy, which raised the bar for modern plastic surgery worldwide.

At Dr. Alexandre Charão’s clinic, we have developed several protocols to improve our post-op outcomes and comfort. We were able to summarize years of experience in this site text.

Our patients come from many different countries around the world and all of them have reported the following advantages of undergoing the procedure in Brazil:

  1. high technical capacity
  2. lower cost
  3. friendlier experience in comparison to other countries
  4. complete team to facilitate a quick recovery
  5. safety in all steps

The next step for you to eliminate whatever is bothering you is to schedule an appointment

This can be done in two ways:

After you get in touch, we will send you a link for the payment of the appointment, which
will be scheduled shortly.
