Aspirative Hidrolipoclasy

Aspirative Hidrolipoclasy 1Numerous people complain about localized obesity. This condition generally manifests itself as rolls or lumps en specific places in the body. This kind of adiposity is difficult to eliminate since it resists any efforts of dieting or exercise. The areas in the body where fat tends to concentrate the most include thighs, hips, abdomen, flanks and under the armpits.

HCR receives many messages in regards to this irritating problem. Fortunately, we can offer our clients a high quality treatment that uses the latest technology: aspirative hidrolipoclasy (also known as in-office liposuction). This treatment is very similar to ultrasound hidrolipoclasy; the only difference is that, once the solution has been injected in the fatty tissue and the ultrasound has been performed, your specialist will proceed to extract the removed fat using micro-cannulas inserted through miniscule incisions.

As a result, this procedure does not require hospitalization and can be performed using local anesthesia. Patients return to their homes the very same day of treatment, without pain or with very minor discomfort at the most. Another advantage is that several sessions can be performed in different regions of the body in the same week. Nonetheless, you must keep in mind that aspirative hidrolipoclasy is recommended only for people who are moderately overweight.
