Liposuction / Lipolaser

Liposuction (Lipoplasty or Liposculpture) has been one of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery in Marbella for many years now. Our surgeons use very innovative techniques in liposuction in order to obtain the best results, including tumescent liposuction, lipolaser or Smart lip, and liposuction with a fat transfer by way of our all new Body Jet technology. It’s important to go in for a thorough consultation before on the best procedure for you depending on your own personal case. It’s also important to remember that liposuction is not a treatment for obesity, nor is it a substitute for leading a healthy life. It’s a technique to shape and sculpt your figure. The ideal candidates are those who are already at their ideal weight or slightly overweight, who have the tendency to accumulate fat in specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, or ‘love handles’…Due to the fact that the procedure is performed with very small incisions, they are practically unnoticeable, and with the latest technology the recovery is comfortable and fast. If you are interested in learning more on liposuction, we at CBC Surgery Institute invite you to get in touch with us by phone or online for a free consultation.
LIPOSUCTION: Small incisions, no more than a few millimeters and made in the least visible regions, allow surgeons to access accumulated fat with cannulas of two, three and four millimeters in diameter. With this tool, connected to an electric aspirator or to an empty syringe is equivalent to lipoaspiration. It is a delicate art, whose mission is to empty, but also to regularize and harmonize the volume and shape of the region. We use the Laser Liposcuplture when dealing with conventional liposuction, utilizing the laser energy, by way of internal probes, with a lipolytic effect, which also favors cutaneous retraction more than other conventional techniques. MINI LIPOSUCTION: In cases of specific areas to treat, and non-severe, the “mini liposuction” is the least aggressive option. Under local anesthesia and as an outpatient, the lipoaspiration is performed together with laser therapy. It’s a practically painless technique, with post-operative care that allows for quick laboral reincorporation, and with much less bruising.
Performed under LOCAL anesthesia, with or without sedation depending on the case.


Liposuction in multiple zones or large areas, as well as fat transfers to the gluteus or breasts require a hospital stay of 12-24 h. Mini liposuctions in specific areas are performed as outpatient procedures.


There is usually slight discomfort, well-controlled with conventional analgesic medication. The patient can shower freely after 24 hours have passed; and resume normal activity after 24-48 hours. Going back to work is usually authorized the day after surgery regarding mini liposuction, and 2-3 days for all other types of liposuction. Possible hematomas are usually reabsorbed in the first 10 days after surgery.


With the right preparation and adequate techniques, complications are practically nonexistent. The use of bandages or compression garments throughout the first weeks after surgery (girdles, tights, etc…). Avoiding physical activity for the first 2-4 weeks. Avoid lifting weight, and maintain a healthy lifestyle to be able to enjoy permanent results.
