Liposuction (or lipoplasty) in Monterrey Mexico is a body-sculpting procedure to remove fat that is unresponsive to dieting and exercising.

Liposuction removes excess fatty tissue, restoring more proportional body shape and curves. For many people, all the exercising and dieting in the world can’t get rid of the extra bulges caused by a lifetime of weight fluctuations, pregnancy or genetic factors.

Liposuction is used effectively to reduce love handles, saddlebags, a double-chin, a bulge around the waistline, or other unsightly fatty deposits in order to develop a better shape and create a more beautiful body.

Is Liposuction Right for You?

While liposuction at our Monterrey Mexico practice is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle, it can make you look and feel better.

During the procedure, Dr. Josue Lara Ontiveros uses a specially-designed surgical instrument known as a cannula to break up and remove excess pockets of fat. The procedure requires only small incisions and, with modern techniques, swelling and bruising during the recovery period can be minimized.

It is important for plastic surgery patients to remember that this procedure is meant for body contouring and is not a treatment for obesity. You need to be close to your body weight to be an ideal candidate.
