From lipoaspiration to
liposculpture to Brazilian lipoplasty. Fat disposal or fat recycling?
Surgical techniques from Latin
America to the Balkans.
Liposuction surgery can be used to treat stubborn fat
pockets in many parts of the body including: abdomen, waist, thighs, hips and
buttocks, arms, neck and back, inner knee, calves, ankles. etc History. **1974.
Dr. Giorgio Fischer, a gynaecologist from Italy invented the original form of
liposuction. **1978. French physicians Illouz and Fournier further developed
liposuction but was confronting negative publicity due to patients experiencing
excessive bleeding and undesirable rippling of the skin after surgery. **1985.
Dr. Jeffrey A.Klein, a California Dermatologist, invented the tumescent
technique for liposuction, revolutionizing liposuction surgery. His
"Tumescent Technique" allowed patients to have liposuction performed
totally by local anesthesia using a much smaller quantity of general
anaesthetic and pain relief drugs. Later the wet and superwet tumescent
techniques became very popular as well.
From then on, the handling of body contour
deformities, known as body contouring, took two major directions:
A) Fat disposal, through manual lipoaspiration with
smaller cannulas known as smaller volume liposculpture with much better results,
then in **2000. Ultrasound was introduced to facilitate the fat removal by
first liquefying it using ultrasonic energy. After a flurry of initial interest,
an increase in reported complications tempered the enthusiasm of many
practitioners and then in. **2006. Laser lipolysis was introduced to liquidify
the fat tissue before it could then be aspirated easier and the skin retract
faster, but the operation was taking much longer.
B) Fat recycling, transfer and grafting **1996. Dr
Sydney Coleman from NY presented the autologous fat grafting in face and
breast, a procedure already used in the buttock area for several years by some
important plastic surgeons in Brazil.
Brazilian lipoplasty reshapes and slims specific areas
of the body by removing excess fat deposits and transferring a small quantity
of untreated or treated aspirated fat (including some stem cells and platelets)
in certain designated areas based on artistic criteria and considerations,
improving the patient's body contours and proportion, and ultimately, enhancing
the patient's self-image. For artistic purposes, the Brazilian lipoplasty body
contouring technique uses the "ogge curve" principle as a useful design
Dispose or Recycle?
The way we see it is that after removal, the fat tissue can be recycled
and used as a sculpture tool for a complete remodeling of the shape of the
body, specially in difficult areas with local fat accumulation, cellulitis and
skin flaccidity or sagging. Based on our experience the complication rate of
this technique is very low.
surgery of body contouring reshapes the body line by removing localized fat,
thus improving its proportion and giving a beautiful and analogical image,
restoring the right lines.
Regardless of fitness level or balanced eating habits, many people, men
and women, seem to have a disproportionate body line due to localized
deposition of fat. For people that ‘deprivation’ diets and exhausting exercise
does not work well, cosmetic surgery offers an easy, quick and painless
solution with spectacular results!
What makes this new technique so strikingly impressive is
not only the spectacular results achieved but the simplicity in doing so, as it
is performed under local anaesthesia and an overnight stay in the hospital is not
required. Surgery duration is less than
an hour. The operation is performed with
absolutely no pain.
For one month following surgery the use of a corset during the day, is
suggested. The slight swelling and bruising will disappear after just one week.
The end result is attributed to 6 months and will remain for many years if no
major body changes occur, such as
pregnancy, weight gain and menopause.
