The lipobanding is an innovative technique developed and patented by Dr. Martín Espinosa. It is a recommended technique for those patients who, in addition to wanting to lose a lot of fat, also want to lose weight. The most suitable cases are patients suffering from morbid and severe obesity problems, most of whom have already tried to lose weight and volume in other ways without success.
How does Lipobanding help to lose weight and volume?
Although there are many techniques to lose weight or volume, they usually focus on one thing or another. Dr. Martin did not want to ignore any of the two so he innovated his techniques so that he can combine a macroliposuction with the placement of a gastric band. During macroliposuction, accumulated fat that is difficult to remove naturally is removed and after finishing this, a gastric band is introduced by laparoscopy.
With the combination of these techniques, a great loss of weight and volume is achieved, reducing several sizes and weighing up to 70 kg.
Why should I choose Lipobanding instead of other techniques?
If the doctor has recommended Lipobanding or has any of the characteristics described above, you may be interested in this technique over others because it is the only one that combines two interventions to treat the problem from two different angles.
Also unlike a normal liposuction, the macroliposucción extracts large amounts of fat and can be performed in several areas on the same day as flanks, cartridge belts, back, legs, abdomen, etc.
And with the use of a bariatric technique would help weight loss but it would be a much slower process and could get fat at certain difficult points. With the gastric band we reduce the capacity of the stomach so the patient is satiated with less food and less hungry throughout the day.
The postoperative period is simple but the patient must collaborate taking care of the first weeks, without making great efforts and performing manual lymphatic drainage massages, which can be combined with pressotherapy.
After the operation the patient usually stays hospitalized one or two days until the doctor observes a correct evolution.
