Hidrolipoclasy vs Liposuction

Below we are going to explain which are the differences between Hidrolipoclasy and the Liposuction in order to answer the potential doubts that you may have after reading the information about the Hidrolipovlasy treatment.

The first thing that it should be said is that both are totally safe treatments (as long as it is performed by experts in medical centres with all the sanitary guarantees) with fast outcomes, almost no contraindications and very few secondary effects.

The Ultrasound-Assisted Hidrolipoclasy extracts, without going through surgery, the fat located in the abdomen, waist, thighs and hips, among other areas. You know, those love handles that make our life a misery, cellulites… The success of this treatment consists on the very effective results and the lack of hospitalization. And, of course, both techniques can be performed on either women or men (since there are a of you who have shyly asked about this issue). First, just as with liposuctions, we trace the area that is going to be treated with a skin marker and disinfect it. Then,

After this, we proceed with the treatment itself, I mean, the use of ultrasound or lasers (depending on the doctor’s recommendation) with the help of professional equipment specific for this. The patient feels like he is being given a massage in said areas. The use of ultrasounds it’s the most important phase since is the one that “brakes” the fat cells. The use of ultrasounds’ length/duration depends on the volume injected and the region that is being treated. These ultrasound waves, when they come in contact with the liquid that has been injected, produce a breakup of the fat cells that the organism will eliminate afterwards. With this, they reduce the volume of adiposity.

When the liquid is being injected it feels like a light sting. In the ultrasound phase, however, the feeling is fresh and pleasant, so much that the patient may even fall asleep. Once the use of ultrasounds is done, the treated area will be a little inflated because of the liquid that has been injected previously, but the organism will eliminate it naturally in about 48 hours.

On it’s behalf, the liposuction is one of the most requested aesthetic techniques, especially on the thighs and abdomen areas. The areas that can be treated with liposuction are: cheeks, jowls or neck, forearm, pectoral area, back, abdomen and waist; inside and back side of the thigh, hip and buttocks; knees, ankles and calf.

Unlike the Hidrolipoclasy, the liposuction is a intervention. It is very much advisable when the fat is more distributed or when the fat densities are very high. The liposuction techniques have developed a lot in the last years, becoming basically interventions that consist on incisions on the area to be treated, the insertion of cannulas and the suck of the accumulated fat.

Given that, the fat tends to move, the liposuction techniques can use vibrating mechanisms to release it (vibroliposuction), or the ultrasounds (ultrasonic liposuction), or even with laser waves (lipolaser), Each technique has its own indications, counter-indications and certain varieties depending on the quantity of fat that can be extracted with each one.

As we were explaining before, both techniques, Hidrolipoclasy and liposuction are indicated for the density of different fats.

The hidrolipoclasy is indicated for fat concentrated in smaller areas (cellulitis and love handles are the most common, and also the moderated rolls of fat) while liposuction is the more indicated for people with normal weight but with localised areas of fat with a volume out of proportion compared to rest of the body. These localised areas of fat are nearly always hereditary and can’t be eliminated with diets or exercise.

All though the liposuction can be done at any age, you will always obtain better results if the skin has enough elasticity to gain the silhouette back after the intervention. If the skin doesn’t retract, like it happens with elder patients, it will be necessary to stretch it out because it doesn’t adapt by itself.

The essential, overall, is: exactitude in the treatment, the guarantees of a centre with all the medical-healthcare conditions and the experience of the professionals that perform the treatments. Fulfilling all these requirements, absolute assurance and quick results we could almost say that the elimination of fat assurance is definite.
