Surgery : Liposuction


Liposuction is a surgical procedure performed to contour and sculpt various areas of the body by removing unwanted fat. Liposuction is well suited for women and men who are of relatively normal weight but have isolated pockets of fat that cause certain areas of their body to appear disproportionate. These localized fat deposits may typically do not respond to dieting or exercise.

In large part because of the quality of the results following liposuction and its ability to treat areas that are difficult to affect by other means, liposuction has become the most popular cosmetic surgery performed.

According to the French Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeon,  SOFCEP , over 180,000 liposuction procedures were performed in 2007 in France.

Liposuction is a french method , invented in 1979 and  is one of the specialties of Dr Laguarde. He has written on the subject and lectured to other plastic surgeons at international (ISAPS)  and national meetings ( SOFCEP, SOFCPRE)  on this topic.He places an emphasis on safety and quality while achieving optimum results for his patients.

The technique that Dr Laguarde uses can best be described as Liposculpture. It is a highly refined method of sculpting tissue to achieve the desired body contour. To accomplish this, Dr. Laguarde uses a variety of methods which will best serve the individual patient?s unique features. These include the Tumescent Technique,  and Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL). Ultrasonic Liposuction is not anymore used in France, due to certain complications induced by ultrasounds.

You may be a good candidate for liposuction if you have excess fat or desire contouring in any of the following areas:

- Inner and Outer Thighs
- Inner Knees
- Hips and Buttocks
- Abdomen and Waist
- Upper Arms
- Jowls and Neck
- Fatty gynecomastia on men.

Liposuction should not be considered a substitute for weight loss. Rather, the best results are obtained when it is undertaken in conjunction with a commitment to a healthy diet and a regular routine of exercise.
