Liposuction Information

Liposuction is the number one cosmetic procedure in the world.

More than 500,000 liposuctions were performed in 2007 in the USA alone.
Although diet, exercise and flattering clothing style help many look better, others remain dissatisfied because of stubborn, unsightly bulges.
In women, those fat deposits occur most frequently from the waist down, on hips, buttocks and outer thighs (saddlebags).
Fat deposits on men tend to accumulate above the waist, on the abdomen and sides of the waist (love handles) or around the breasts.
Liposuction surgery involves the removal of fat cells from the body, and may be used alone or in conjunction with other procedures, such as facelift or "Tummy tuck." It is designed for those who have specific areas of localized fat deposits and who have tried unsuccessfully to eliminate them through diet, exercise and weight loss.

There are two kinds of liposuction procedures:

1- Liposculpture: a procedure designed for sculpting a person who has a normal or slightly overweight person. They have distinct areas of localized fat that are disproportionate to the rest of their bodies.
The procedure can be done with local anesthesia with or without sedation and is limited to removing 1-3 liters of fat.
Recovery is quick and the person is expected to resume work next day.
However a garment must be used for two weeks for best results. Technically this procedure is very challenging because the patient expects perfect results.
It is far better to take out slightly less than what is needed than more since taking more can result in a depression that is hard to correct.
The rule of "less is more" in esthetic surgery applies.

A touch up session can easily be performed several months down the road if needed where the surgeon may take a little bit more fat.

The patient must have realistic expectations and must continue to watch his or her weight.

2- De-bulking liposuction surgery: Here the aim is to improve the shape of an overweight person.
The procedure is frequently done using spinal anesthesia with or without sedation.

A maximum of 5-8 liters should be taken at any given session using a tumescent technique whereby at least an equal amount of fluids are injected in the areas to be suctioned to minimize bleeding, bruising and post operative pain.

Tummy Tuck

The best candidates for tummy tucks or abdominoplasty are men tummyor women who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose abdominal skin.
A protruding abdomen can be a cause of distress for men and women alike.
The surgery is particularly helpful to women who,
through multiple pregnancies, weak abdominal muscles are annoyed by loose skin that has been over-stretched and no longer responds to diet and exercise.
For those who have experienced a massive weight loss,
their only alternative to loose overhanging skin is surgery.

Patients who intend to lose a lot of weight should postpone the surgery.
Also, women who plan future pregnancies should wait, as vertical muscles in the abdomen that are tightened during surgery can separate again during pregnancy.

Patients that have stabilized in their weight loss program or who feel they
are at their ideal weight are the best candidates for a tummy tuck.
Many patients combine their tummy tuck with other cosmetic procedures such as liposuction, breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery.

Breast Augmentation

Breast enlargement is the second most common cosmetic surgery in the USA after liposuction
It is the third most common after liposuction and tummy tucks at our La Clinique de France Internationale. For the women concerned, small breasts are a severe mental burden from an emotional,
social, and sexual point of view.
They do not feel like a complete woman: the most important attribute of femininity is missing.

Breast enlargement is designed to increase the size and/or alter the
shape of a woman's breasts through the use of an artificial breast implant.
Women may choose to have this operation either as a reconstructive technique
following breast cancer surgery, to balance asymmetrical breasts, or to change the proportions and line of the body.

Breast augmentation can be performed at any age after the breasts are fully developed.
A good candidate for breast enlargement is emotionally mature, understands her personal motivations and has realistic goals for the procedure.

If your breasts are sagging, a breast lift may be recommended in conjunction with augmentation.
There is no scientific evidence that breast augmentation increases the risk of breast cancer.
The presence of breast implants, however, makes it more technically difficult to take and read mammograms.


Say Goodbye to Cellulite; Hello to Great Legs and Buttocks!

You'll Look Younger and Feel Fabulous There's only one medical treatment proven to reduce or eliminate cellulite - Mesotherapy
Although many products purport to treat cellulite, most are merely massage machines and creams that do little (or nothing) to improve your appearance. Mesotherapy gets results by targeting the underlying causes of cellulite - not just the outward symptoms.

Cellulite usually appears between the ages of 25 and 35, and progressively worsens with time. Although it's easily treated with a few Mesotherapy sessions in its early stages, once cellulite progresses to more advanced stages, treatment usually requires a greater number of Mesotherapy sessions.

Since more than 90% of women are affected by cellulite, this condition doesn't make you "different." But doing something about it does!

Mesotherapy can eliminate cellulite on the legs and buttocks, breaking down the orange-peel appearance of skin, and producing a smooth contour.
The average patient eliminates all visible cellulite in 10-25 sessions. Some patients require additional treatments if their cellulite is particularly severe. On average, the patients completed their treatments in less than 10 sessions.

To treat patients with cellulite, Dr. P.R. Clero employs a standard Mesotherapy formula, which is often customized for each patient. All patients are allergy tested 24 hours prior to treatment. Please note: allergies to the medications are quite rare.
Once you are evaluated (and it's determined you have no allergies),
Dr. Clero will schedule weekly or bi-monthly treatment sessions. Each session takes about 45 minutes, and involves the injection of formulas in specific patterns (different types of cellulite require different injection techniques).

Mesotherapy is completely safe when performed by a well-trained physician. In fact, during the 50 years that Mesotherapy has been practiced, no deaths have occurred as a result.

The most significant side effects of Mesotherapy are black and blue marks, a 15- to 20-minutes burning sensation, mild to moderate soreness for 1-5 days, and (as with any injection) a slight risk of infection. All patients return to work the same day.

The Treatment

Prior to a Mesotherapy session, Dr. P.R. Clero identifies and maps the area to be treated.
Once the area is mapped, the site is cleansed with alcohol, and the patient placed on the treatment table before micro-injections are given.
When treating cellulite, mapping is extremely important, since most cellulite will disappear when lying down, making it difficult for the doctor to know exactly where to treat.

Mesotherapy is a procedure used for weight loss and body sculpting to reduce, eliminate and contour specific undesired fat pockets.
This method targets the receptors on fat cells that produce lipogenesis (fat production) and lipolysis (fat breakdown). Receptors that break down fat are known as beta receptors; those that create fat are alpha receptors. Alpha receptors are stimulated to produce fat when you ingest food containing carbohydrates, fat, amino acids, hormones or alcohol.

In both men and women, the ratio of alpha to beta receptors is generally 1:1 - above the waist. Below the waist, women have approximately 6 to 8 alpha receptors for every single beta receptor. This is the main reason women have trouble losing fat in their abdomens, buttocks and thighs: their bodies are designed to retain fat in those areas.

A medical history and physical examination is required prior to receiving treatment for weight loss and body sculpting. Based on individual requirements, the doctor selects a formula consisting of several medications that block alpha receptors and stimulate the beta receptors. Once injected into the skin, the formula slowly diffuses into the fat, and breaks it down. The number of weight loss and body sculpting treatments required varies from person to person.
