Some plastic surgeons perform the hydrolipo in their own practice, and in these cases, it is important to make sure that the environment is adequate for surgery and must be within the mandatory parameters of the National Agency for Sanitary Surveillance (ANVISA). To improve safety, some doctors choose to perform small liposuction with some time intervals (between one and two months), but this is not a consensus.

Within plastic surgery, many patients prefer conventional liposculpture that is done in a hospital and up to 7% fat equivalent of body weight can be removed and act at a maximum of 40% of body area.

This surgery may be under local anesthesia (with u without sedation) depending on the region or general anesthesia. Each case should be evaluated in a particular way and the type of anesthesia is discussed in consultation. It should always be emphasized that patient safety should always be a priority, and should not be economized for this.

The hydrolipo can be made in almost any part of the body that has localized excess fat, being the most common regions: abdomen, flanks (waist), back (lower and upper region), culottes (outer thigh), inner thigh region, chin, armpits, arms and pubic region.

Hydrolipo post-operative

Because it is a smaller surgery than conventional liposuction, be quicker and this is interesting for modern times that require quick return to work.

The important thing is always to follow the advice of your plastic surgeon, even if it is a minor procedure.

As with conventional liposuction, the patient should use a compression band for about 30 to 60 days (depending on the case), which reduces the swelling (edema) present in the postoperative period. Lymphatic drainage should be done as soon as the physician allows, which minimizes the occurrence of fibrosis and undulations. Aerobic physical activity / bodybuilding can be from 20 to 30 days, but depends on release from your plastic surgeon.

Avoid sunbathing for a minimum of one month, or until purple spots (ecchymoses) disappear. Hydrolipoaspiration stitches are usually removed between five and eight days after surgery. The result of the surgery is observed after two to six months of the procedure; depends on how quickly the swelling resorption occurs.

Possible Complications of the Hydrotrope

Complications in the hydrotrope are the same as those that can occur in liposuction and include: hematomas, seromas, ecchymoses, irregularities, bleeding, thrombosis, among others.

Before and after hydrolipo

Hydrolipo are usually made in smaller regions of the body, if compared to conventional liposuction. Most important is that the patient has well defined goals and check with the doctor if they can be achieved. Beware of unrealistic expectations.
