The procedure

The procedure will depend on the area to be treated and whether the same procedure corrects several areas. The most common techniques are:

  • Tummy tuck (Adominoplasty): the removal of the excess skin and fat between the skin and the musculature is performed to obtain a flatter firmer abdomen.
  • Breast lift (Mastopexy): the raising and improvement of the breast is achieved, prostheses can be used or not.
  • Arm lift (Brachioplasty): it consists of removing of all the excess fat and hanging skin from the underarm and reshapes the upper part of the upper arm.
  • Crural lift (Cruroplasty): the removal of excess skin and fat tissue of the inner thigh, thereby eliminating flaccidity in the area.
  • Liposuction (in different areas): fat is extracted from under the skin, can be done with ACualipo.
  • Increase in the size of male breast tissue (gynecomastia): a technique that is used to decrease the size of the male breast through an incision just around the nipple so that the scar is barely visible.
