For example, there is a blood test that shows us that the person has a good thyroid and therefore surgery can be performed. The same happens with other chronic diseases such as those that affect blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, organs such as the lungs, kidneys, among others.
At the appointment with the surgeon, it is necessary to give prior information about the diseases suffered and later request complementary tests such as a cardiological evaluation and a blood test.

The demand for both procedures has been increasing recently. The trend for a slim face with a very marked profile has become the desire of young and adult women and men. The search for alternatives is constant and the offer is also varied, for this reason, many doubts have arisen as to whether the procedure is the most effective and beneficial when looking to reduce cheeks.
Next, we show you a comparison between liposuction and bichectomy. You will learn more about the advantages and disadvantages of each one and depending on this, which is the one that best suits your needs.

In the case of bichectomy, the surgical wound can often become durable, which implies that there is a greater probability of alterations in the skin of the incision. In both procedures, local anesthesia is usually applied and its duration is approximately 1 hour.

The 2 procedures require a maximum of 3 to 4 days of recovery, in the case of bichectomy, it is required to be more careful with activities that involve a lot of physical effort. In cheek liposuction it will only be necessary to use a special garment for the face.

Facial refinement with laser liposuction brings more accurate aesthetic results compared to bichectomy. This is because it will be done at different points on the cheeks in addition to the double chin and neck. On the other hand, the bichectomy has an immediate result by the extraction of the Bichat bags where the fat accumulates, therefore, the result will be more drastic and noticeable.
On the other hand, liposuction brings permanent results that should not be affected unless there is a very drastic increase in weight. For its part, bichectomy can bring premature aging due to the lack of support that will be in the face due to the absence of these accumulations of fat, and it can be reflected in the sagging of the skin and an extremely thinned face.

Always remember that results may vary, and to maintain the indicated care to the extreme so that recovery brings the least amount of sequelae possible.

The appearance of the abs is an aesthetic issue that matters both men and women as it is a very difficult area to define no matter the diet and exercise. The defined abs has become a reflection of health and harmony, people are in the constant search to achieve the goal, hence the success of the procedures that help eliminate abdominal fat. Abdominoplasty like liposuction are 2 of the most requested plastic surgery treatments by people.

According to a report by the American Society for Plastic Surgery, abdominoplasty intervention has increased by 107% since 2000 while the demand for liposuction continues to grow.

Liposuction allows us to define our silhouette by eliminating localized fat deposits, reducing and shaping the area to be treated. The procedure consists of minimal incisions through which a hollow tube or cannula is inserted through which the fat accumulations will be aspirated. There are many other areas where liposuction can be performed such as hips, back, buttocks, double chin and legs, etc.

On the other hand, the abdominoplasty is performed through a long incision from one end of the hip to the other, just above the pubis and below the navel, the result of removing all the lower abdominal skin. A second incision is made around the navel, to be able to transpose it to its proper position. The surgery leaves a permanent scar in the lower abdomen that, depending on the amount of excess skin, may be long or short but is hidden by the edge of the underwear.

If the weight loss has not been too much and there is no skin excess or stretch marks and the abdominal walls are not distended, liposuction will be enough to locally correct the excess fat and shape the figure.

If there is excess skin and stretch marks, a tummy tuck will be the most indicated to remove the skin between the navel and the pubis in the amount that is required. With the help of the surgery, the muscles that, over the years and weight changes, have become distended, forming a kind of inner corset joining the muscles from above the navel to the pubis, thus obtaining a tighter and flatter abdomen.
