Liposuction in Puerto Vallarta

Also known as lipoplasty, liposuction Puerto Vallarta is executed to slim and contour specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, and ultimately, enhance your confidence.

Even with superb health and a practical level of exercise, individuals still struggle with disproportionate shaping due to localized fat deposits.

Both men and women are traveling to Puerto Vallarta for liposuction after a failed attempt to cut fat in specific areas such as abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, arms and face.

Good Candidate for Liposuction

Good candidates for liposuction Puerto Vallarta have realistic expectations and ultimately want to enhance their appearance and self-confidence.

The best candidates for liposuction are of average weight with firm, elastic skin, with pockets of excess fat in specific areas. Candidates should be physically healthy, non-smokers and have contributed to a routine of healthy diet and exercise.

Liposuction carries greater risk for individuals with medical problems such as diabetes, significant heart or lung disease, poor blood circulation, or those who have recently had surgery.

Types of Liposuction

Your plastic surgeon in Puerto Vallarta will evaluate your health and help determine the condition of your skin. During your consultation, the surgeon will discuss the body-contouring methods that may be most appropriate for you and share before and after photos of recent liposuction procedures…

Liposuction Puerto Vallarta is employed to permanently remove specific areas of fat on the face and body. Small incisions at key locations are achieved to help access the treatment area.

With the traditional and tumescent liposuction Puerto Vallarta, it involves the use of a fluid injection comprised of a salt solution, lidocaine and epinephrine (a drug that contracts blood vessels to minimize blood loss). Super wet liposuction Puerto Vallarta is similar to tumescent, except the amount of fluid that is injected is less.

Ultrasound-Assisted Lipoplasty (UAL) Puerto Vallarta requires the use of a special cannula that produces ultrasonic energy. The cannula creates an energized explosion of fat cell walls and liquefies the fat. The fat is then removed through traditional liposuction.

Other Procedures Performed by Plastic Surgeons in Puerto Vallarta

Laser Liposuction

Laser Liposuction as opposed to traditional liposuction uses laser light waves to first melt the fat which is then suctioned out.

Body Jet Liposuction

Body Jet liposuction, also known as water assisted liposuction uses a small fan shaped water jet that pulses pressure against the fat tissue, allowing fat cells to wash off gradually and be suctioned out immediately.

Power Assisted Liposuction

PAL uses a specialized cannula with motorized movement.

Male Breast Reduction

Liposuction can be employed to reduce certain types of male breast tissue known as gynecomastia.

Abdominal Etching

Abdominal etching is a technique used to satirist the appearance of a “6 pack” in the abdomen region.


Brachioplasty, or arm lift, is a solution for individuals who have loose or hanging skin of the upper arm. This condition is often times seen following massive weight loss.

Tummy Tuck

An abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck, creates a flatter, tighter abdomen.

Liposuction Risks and Side Effects

As with any major surgery, liposuction includes risks such as bleeding and a reaction to anesthesia. Possible complications specific to liposuction Puerto Vallarta, which are rare, include:

Contour Irregularities

Your skin may appear bumpy, wavy or withered due to uneven fat removal, poor skin elasticity, and unusual healing.

Fluid Accumulation

Temporary pockets of fluid (seromas) can form under the skin. This fluid may need to be drained with a needle.


Skin infections are rare, but possible. A severe skin infection may be life-threatening.

Fat Embolism

Pieces of fat may break away and become trapped in a blood vessel and gather in the lungs or travel to the brain.

Cardiac Complications. Shifts in fluid levels as fluids are being injected and suctioned out can cause potentially kidney and heart complications.
