Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery technique used since the early 80s and initially described by Dr. Illouz. Since then, many changes have been made, even if the principle remains the same: remove excess fat using fine cannulas introduced through small skin incisions.
Liposuction removes skin fat from the belly area and flanks (“love handles”) and thus redefines a beautiful size to improve the aesthetic appearance.
Belly lift (tummy tuck)
The tummy tuck is an intervention to recreate a flat stomach by removing excess skin from the belly and tightening the rectus muscles of the abdominal wall (treatment of a diastasis of the rectus). It can also be combined with liposuction of the belly and / or hips at the same time when necessary.
It is an intervention that is performed to correct belly deformities after pregnancy, weight loss but also to remove the fat that accumulates over time.
