In my clinic we have started a liposuction protocol addressed to postmenopausic women, since the fat tends to accumulate at the back and the flanks, losing the waist shape.

When woman reaches the perimenopausic period suffers hormonal changes, based on the alteration in secretion of two hormones mainly, progesterone and estrogen. A part from all physical manifestations caused by these hormonal changes, the decrease of these hormonal levels cause a significant change in body fat distribution, in a way that this fat tends to accumulate in new areas, creating an androgenic fat distribution (masculine).

The main zones where the fat accumulates in a woman during this period of life are the back, flanks, preaxillary zone of the breast and inner aspect of the arms.

In these areas, applying conventional liposuction small fat volume is aspirated being very difficult as well. With the aid of powered liposuction an easy aspiration can be performed and the skin retracts very well.

Inner aspect of arms

Powered liposuction is applied as described previously for special areas.

The back zone

Liposuction is performed only in women requiring so. In postmenopausic woman, due to body fat redistribution, this area usually requires treatment. We perform powered liposuction allowing fat aspiration with minimal bleeding and inducing more skin retraction. The final result is enhanced using superficial liposuction with very thin cannulas eliminating remaining irregularities. From the incisions utilized to perform liposuction within the back, we also can reach the zone of the tail of the breast and aspirate the required volume.

Breast preaxillary zone

They are treated from back incisions with the same protocol. Usually, they are fat deposits that forming a roll, are located beside and lateral to the fold occupying the lateral area towards the back.

Flank zones

Within the flanks of young woman no deposits are found since it corresponds to androgenic fat distribution. The deposit in this area in postmenopausic woman represents a serious concern. Powered liposuction is applied obtaining good aesthetic outcomes.

The liposuction of these characteristic zones in postmenopausic woman associated with liposuction of classic zones allows the patient to recover a feminine and youthful shape.. With powered liposuction assistance satisfactory outcomes are obtained.
