Reconstructive & Plastic Surgery

Liposculpture / Liposuction

Liposculpture / Liposuction is a surgical technique that allows the extraction of the deep layer of sub-cutaneous fat from places where it appears unsightly and excessive restoring a harmonious line to the silhouette and oval shape to the face (double chin).


  • Localised deep masses of fat that do not disappear with weight loss (face and body).



The operation, which is performed under general or tumescent local anaesthetic, consists of small incisions made by scalpel which allow the introduction of the cannula (4-8 mm) under the skin into the adipose tissue which is extracted by means of a simple syringe or a suction machine.

The practitioner performs forward and backward movements to extract the fat as efficiently as possible. When the desired result is obtained, the suction is stopped. The small incisions require one or two stitches, and a compressive surgical dressing or garment must be applied to the treated areas.



  • The operation is carried out in one or several sessions according on the individual case: this is decided with the dermatologist during the consultation.
  • The compressive bandage must be worn for at least a month to exclude all risks of oedema.


  • Spectacular and long lasting reshaping of the figure and oval of the face.

Advantages of the technique

  • Spectacular results often with only one operation.
  • Definitive results provided there is no new weight gain.
Interesting facts
  • Liposculpture / Liposuction does not replace dieting for patients that wish to lose weight. Nor is it an answer for skin problems such as sagging skin and tissue slackness after the age of 40, stretch marks or orange peel skin (cellulite), for which the Lémanic Clinic offers other treatments.
