Reducing localized fat without surgery


Reducing localized fat without surgery is a medical treatment of Clínica Sanza in Barcelona that permits the localized fat elimination without using surgery. However, if the quantity is greater than localized fat, we recommend to proceed with other methods, such as, liposuction or mega liposuctions.

Our team will evaluate, asses and determine the best treatment that suits your individual needs.

  • Number of recommended sessions: 3 sessions for each area to be treated.
  • Frequency: every 15 days.
  • Recommended doses: 3 doses maximum per session.

It is recommended to combine this treatment with deep tissue massage or an ultra cavitation session. This way, the treatment will be distributed more efficiently and the end result will be greater.

Sanza Clinic in Barcelona, Spain, is a reference center in the treatment of localized fat removal without surgery.



Men and women with a petite or medium size that have localized fat in specific areas which can not be eliminated with diet or exercise. It is also recommended for post liposuction small retouches if needed.


This treatment consists in applying fatty tissue via injection or cannula, which contains carnitine, acetylcholine and deoxycholate. This combination of ingredients dissolves and permits the body to reabsorb it.

Frequently asked questions about liposuction and lipolaser surgery

What is the difference between liposuction and lipolaser?

Liposuction is the conventional technique where a small cannula is used to remove fat deposits from certain areas of the body. The lipolaser requires a special fiber optic device that transmits laser energy, this energy produces a destruction of fat. The fat is converted into a liquid emulsion that is left for the body to reabsorb (if the amount is not too large) or can be removed by aspiration through a cannula. Apart from the removal of fat, the laser causes the coagulation of the small vessels of adipose tissue and stimulates the reorganization of collagen in the superficial dermis causing an immediate skin tightening or firming effect.

Can I have liposuction in summer?

Liposuction, like any cosmetic surgery, can be performed at any time of the year. The only consideration to take into account is the need to wear a compression garment in the operated area for a month after the operation, which prevents you from going to the swimming pool or the beach.

Can fatty tissue accumulate again in the treated areas?

Not if it is done well. Once puberty is over, fat cells take a long time to reproduce, but maintain the ability to “grow”, which is why once we eliminate the number of fat cells (adipocytes) these accumulations cannot develop, as long as we follow a healthy diet and without excesses.

When will I be able to bathe or shower after liposuction?

The time of the bath will be marked at the time when you can remove the girdle and replace it without causing discomfort and that the inflammation begins to subside, this can be 2 or 3 days after the intervention.

How much rest is necessary before returning to work?

It can vary depending on the length of the procedure, but it is generally recommended from 5 to 7 days, as long as the return to work does not involve too much physical effort or a very active mobilization.

Does liposuction improve or eliminate cellulite?

Yes and a lot. Cellulite or orange peel skin is a skin problem that manifests as very frequent small depressions in the buttocks, legs and hips. Liposuction cures and improves cellulite by decreasing the volume of certain areas. It partially eliminates fibrous partitions and favors a better lymphatic drainage.

Can I have liposuction if I am very overweight?

Yes, of course, you just have to remember that liposuction is not a method to lose weight but to lose volume. Clinica Sanza has a very extensive protocol for large volume liposuctions (from 10 to 15 liters), a technique that we have published in different specialized magazines and that we have presented in multiple national and international medical congresses.

Will there be a lot of bruising and swelling after liposuction?

Bruises and swelling may appear in the area for a few days, even weeks. Usually the bruises disappear after 7 to 14 days and the most evident inflammation after one to two weeks. Subsequently there is a little residual swelling that can be maintained for a month or two after the intervention.

Should I follow any post-operative treatment?

Basically you have to follow the specific instructions for each case that your surgeon gives you. On the other hand, it is necessary to wear compression garments for a period of 3 to 5 weeks (this will vary according to the evolution of each patient). We suggest lymphatic drainage to eliminate edema, swelling and speed up the disappearance of bruises.

When will I see the effects of the operation?

Once the acute inflammation has passed, the initial results can already be seen, that is to say after 3 weeks to 2 months depending on the extension of the intervention, although the definitive results can take 6 to 9 months.

Why are there some liposuctions that put on weight again?

It is due to a bad technique of the surgeon. If it is done correctly, it is impossible for the fat to form again, even if you get pregnant and after giving birth you keep the weight after the liposuction, the result continues to be as we had left it.
