The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia, either on an outpatient basis, or during a short hospital stay of 24 hours if the work to be performed is more extensive.
At the beginning of the operation a traditional liposuction is performed in order to remove the excess fat located in the hips, the abdomen, the pectorals and / or the arms.
A high precision liposuction is then performed using specific cannulas to sculpt all the muscular contours (abdominal, pectoral, arm muscles).
In some cases, the volume of the pectorals, calves, buttocks or abdominals can be increased at the end of the procedure by re-injecting the fat taken during liposuction work (lipofilling technique). If the patient has insufficient fat to perform this type of augmentation, silicone implants may be inserted either during the same surgical procedure or during subsequent surgery.
The incisions necessary for this procedure are only a few millimetres long and are located in very discrete zones.
