Most Common Types of Plastic Surgery

  • This surgery is performed under local anaesthesia, not requiring hospital in-patient admission. By using a thin cannula which combines the vibration with rotation, this technique is less traumatic to tissue and facilitates the aspiration of fat;
  • Vibrolipoabdominoplasty (new technique of abdominoplasty) - this surgery improves the overall appearance of the body and the abdominal area, removes excess fat and increases the muscle tension  of the abdominal wall. Vibroliposuction is less invasive resulting in a more comfortable recovery for the patient with better results.

Breast Surgery
