Dr, Pietro de Mauro is the only plastic surgeon in Marbella to offer Lipo Vaser surgery, a revolutionary new liposuction techique that can help you get rid of those stubborn pockets of fat to achieve a more defined and sculpted silhouette. Lipo Vaser can improve the definition of the neck, back, arms, tummy and legs including knees and ankles, and it is possible to choose to have multiple procedures at the same time. Using ultrasound technology, fat is changed into liquid for easier extraction. The surrounding tissue is unaffected, so pain is reduced and recovery is much quicker as compared to traditional liposuction.
The surgery is carried out under general or local anaesthetic, the surgeon injects tumescent fluid (saline and anaestehetic) into the selected area of fat and ultrasound technology is used to change the fat into liquid for easier extration.
The procedure will last up to 5 hours and compression bandages and drains are applied to aid healing.
