Macroliposuction Can Extract More Than 15 Litters Of Fat
Macroliposuction is a variant of liposuction indicated for cases of generalized mild obesity. It consists of the extraction of fat of over 15 litters, through a cannula by a small incision. It is performed with local anesthesia and sedation, and hospital admission is required.
With Macroliposuction you can extract between fifteen and twenty liters of fat thanks to a special technique of anaesthetic infiltration, reducing among other things the sugar levels in people with diabetes.
Macroliposuction is a very effective technique to provide a new body contour with minimal scarring. The results can be permanent, as long as you maintain a proper diet and practice regular exercise.
Once the necessary time has elapsed for the macroliposuction to have deployed all its effects, it is possible to proceed to a tummy tuck, either partial or circumferential, both interventions in which we are specialists.
Once the procedure has been performed, the patient can go home, but be aware… Physical exertion shouldn’t be made for a week and lymphatic drainage massages should be applied for one or two weeks post operation.
On Tuesday February 28, 2017 we performed a macroliposuction of 12 liters of fat on a patient weighing 94 kg, as a solution to an obesity problem in a patient previously treated using the POSE technique.
The patient is discharged in less than 24 hours and without the need for a blood transfusion due to anemia.
Macroliposuction is one of the most developed techniques in the UOA (Advanced Obesity Unit) of Dr. Martín Espinosa, who with 20 years of experience and more than 500 macroliposucciones performed alone, or combined with other techniques for obesity such as the intragastric balloon (Lipogastric) or gastric band (lipobanding), is one of the choice techniques in patients with obesity type I, II, III.
