Liposuction and liposculpture

Liposuction and liposculpture are plastic surgeries that can be done in various regions, but mainly to remove abdominal fat.

Liposuction plastic surgery is used as a resource for making the liposculpture, whatever it held only the removal of fat or being put into other areas.

Anesthesia for liposuction and liposculpture may be general anesthesia, epidural or local.

Large volumes of fat removed may determine the risk, both during surgery and in the postoperative period. The total volume of fat to be removed per session should not exceed 5-7 percent of body weight of the patient.

Abdominal Dermolipectomy

The abdominal dermolipectomy surgery is a plastic surgery made in the abdominal region to correct the excess fat and skin that are located in the abdominal region, as occurs after a very large reduction in weight.

Anesthesia for abdominal dermolipectomy is general or epidural. The risks of this plastic surgery are those associated with all surgical interventions.


Otoplasty is a plastic surgery performed on the ear and is indicated when there are psychological problems, as in cases of "big ears".

Anesthesia for otoplasty in children is general anesthesia, in adults is local anesthesia with or without sedation at the discretion of the patient.

The risks of otoplasty are those associated with all surgical interventions.

Facelift or Rhytidectomy

A facelift is a plastic surgery done on the face also known as facelift. The facelift gives a facial rejuvenation, possibly raising the outer corner of the eyebrow, to suspend the cheek region, reducing the grooves next to the mouth and around the lips and stretch the neck skin, reducing jowls and double chin.

The facelift is done under general anesthesia or local with sedation.

The risks of rhytidectomy are, in rare cases, bleeding, bruised, opening the scar and loss of movement in some areas.

Rhinoplasty, also known as "nose job"

Rhinoplasty is a nose plastic surgery and is a cosmetic surgery recommended in cases where there is the need for a correction of traumatic or natural deformities. It is considered restorative ans improves the patient's breathing.

Anesthesia in the rhinoplasty is up to the patient and the surgeon who will decide the use of general or local anesthesia.

The risks associated with rhinoplasty are possible contingencies in the evolution of surgery, possibility of subsequent corrections, by surgical revision in order to achieve the planned result.

Breast augmentation - Breast Increase

The breast augmentation is one of the most common plastic surgeries. The growth of breasts is recommended to improve the aesthetic appearance of small breasts, through the introduction of silicone implants. It is also recommended in cases of congenital breast asymmetry, where one breast is smaller then the other.

Anesthesia in the breast augmentation can be general, epidural or local, depending on the case.

Occasionally there is rejection of the silicone prosthesis in the body, and the leak of the prosthetic material.

Reduction Mammoplasty - Breast Reduction

The reduction mastoplasty serves to improve the shape of the breast and, as a complementary resource in the prophylactic treatment of certain breast diseases and in preventing problems caused by very large breasts, like those of the spine.

The anesthesia used in this procedure is local, general, epidural or combined, leaving at the surgeon's discretion.

The risks associated with breast reduction are only those associated with all surgical procedures.

Blepharoplasty - Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty is plastic surgery to eyelids and serves to remove excess skin and fat in the eyelid region.

Anesthesia is usually local with prior sedation.

The biggest risk associated with blepharoplasty is that even if properly operated, there remains a percentage of the original defect.

Genioplasty - Chin Plastic Surgery

The genioplasty serves to correct the posterior chin, or to correct the chin retracted by the introduction of a piece of silicon.

A genioplasty is usually done under local anesthesia.

In this plastic surgery the body can reject the piece of silicon.
