BODY FEMINIZATION SURGERY
High Definition Liposculpture
The female body contour has different proportions to the male body contour because fat accumulates in different ways and in different areas. High definition HD liposculpture allows you to reshape your silhouette, giving you more harmonious, natural proportions.
WHAT IS HIGH DEFINITION LIPOSCULPTURE ?
Liposuction or liposculpture is the name given to the technique that enables the removal of fat accumulated in specific areas of the body. High Definition HD liposculpture is the most advanced technique which, as well as eliminating fat accumulation, allows the entire body contour to be comprehensively remodelled and redefined. This achieves a harmonious, slender, stylised silhouette in women, and a more muscular, defined profile in men.
High Definition HD liposculpture allows the removal of accumulated fat deposits in specific areas such as the double chin, arms, chest, abdomen, hips, calves, ankles and more. However, the most common areas in trans women are usually the waist and trunk, while trans men most often request removal at the hips and belly.

You will be admitted on the same day as the liposculpture and over the ensuing hours undergo all necessary monitoring.
Liposculpture surgery usually lasts 1–4 hours, depending on the extent of the area to be treated. This will also be a decisive factor in choosing the anaesthesia type. It can be local combined with sedatives if the surgery is very minor, or an epidural block or general anaesthesia if the area where liposculpture will be performed is extensive.
You should bear in mind that in liposculpture, people who have firm, elastic skin will enjoy a better final silhouette, whereas if the skin is very flaccid it is advisable to carry out an additional surgical procedure to eliminate excess skin so that it adapts better to the new contour.
Fat accumulates in different places in men and women. For this reason, the 4D liposculpture technique can also be used in trans people, combining the HD liposculpture technique with lipofilling or “fat grafting”. This technique consists of redistributing the fat extracted from the areas with excess, to treat it and inject it in other areas to improve the silhouette. So, for example, in trans women it can help to make the hips or buttocks more prominent. And in trans men it can be used to redefine a more muscular appearance.
After liposculpture you will need to wear an elastic compression garment for 3–4 weeks to help shape your new figure. As soon as possible, your surgeon will advise you to start walking and taking short walks, but always avoiding exertion, at least for the first two weeks.
THE RESULTS OF LIPOSCULPTURE
Three-dimensional liposculpture is an effective, safe technique that will give you a new figure. The results are not seen immediately because of the swelling, but it is a gradual process that lasts between one and two months. However, depending on the extent of the intervention it can last up to six months.
The results of HD liposculpture are permanent if you take care of your diet and exercise. The resulting scars are tiny (just a few millimetres) and become virtually invisible over time.
In the case of weight gain, it usually occurs in a more uniform and harmonious way, respecting your new body shape, without fat accumulating where it was removed.
TIPS AFTER LIPOESCULPTURE
You must wear a compression girdle for the next 3 or 4 weeks after surgery. The girdle will vary according to the area treated. You must wear it 24 hours a day and you can only take it off to shower.
You will be able to shower normally, but the first days accompanied by if when removing the girdle you feel somewhat uncomfortable. The water should not be very hot and dries the wounds well, with care and cold air before putting the girdle back on.
It is very important that you do not miss any of the visits after your surgery so that the IM GENDER medical team can evaluate your progress.
