The Procedure

Liposculpture 1How is this procedure done in Costa Rica? This revolutionary aesthetic technique allows unwanted body fat to be taken out, while at the same time holding the specific area that is being treated. It replaces the regular Liposuction machine and the vacuum that is used in this surgery with syringes and cannulas that are much thinner; the end result is a very artistic job, and much less traumatic then similar procedures.

This method has become more and more popular in Costa Rica and is highly recommended by the staff at HCR. What is primarily important about this procedure is that it does not depend on the results of a machine but on the capability and professional qualifications of the specialist who performs it.

This medical treatment will be preformed in a sterilized, secure operation room with all the necessary precautions to attend in case of an eventuality.

Local anesthesia will be given through a low temperature adrenaline injection, which besides being extremely effective, reduces the risk of bleeding and results in a better extraction of the fat desired.

1. Molds the specific body part in a very artistic manner, sculpting the body.

2. Uses local anesthesia complemented with cold to treat the wanted area.

3. Has a very short postoperative period with hardly any consequences.

4. It is preformed on specific areas, depending on the individual’s needs.

5. The procedure is considered to be ambulatory, recovery is very fast, approximately a week’s rest and two week’s no exercise

6. A band will be worn for about a month, to help the tissue get back into place.

Health Issues

Disadvantages and Characteristics:

One last recommendation that HCR would like to make is that you understand that liposculpture is not a quick weight loss fix, but an effective option to define and soften your figure instantly.

It is necessary to think that a patient that has such aspiring ambitions has decided to change their lifestyle for a healthier one that includes exercise and maintaining a low calorie diet so the objective of the procedure is fully accomplished.

This means that while you do not have the specific goal of feeling and looking better, liposculpture is not the method for you, because results will not last long and you may regain your old figure.
