Dr Thierry Bron - Liposculpture ou liposuccion

Liposculpture – Liposuction

This is an intervention to definitively eliminate excess localized fat. It remodels your figure and is increasingly combined with lipofilling (or liposculpture – grafting liposuctioned fat) to increase the projection of some areas (buttocks, breasts, cheekbones, calves, etc.) or fill in certain wrinkles.

EXTRA

Crisalix is 3D simulation software that shows the results of aesthetic surgery. This tool helps patients better express their request and enables surgeons to give clear, reasoned explanations. Patients are therefore better informed when they decide to have an operation.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Can a liposuction remove orange-peel skin?
    Although this is not the main aim, removing fat from a body part can smooth out an orange-peel effect. The intervention to reliably remove an orange-peel effect involves sectioning fibrous attachments connecting the deep plane to the skin (using an extremely sharp cannula under general anaesthetic in an operating theatre, or a Cellfina® device under local anaesthetic at your doctor’s surgery).
  • Is liposuction painful?
    Liposuction is most often done under general anaesthetic and causes aches, which are relieved by type 1 analgesics (Paracetamol®).

  • Two consultations need to be arranged: one with the plastic surgeon and the other with the anaesthetist.
