Ask Dr. Borra more information on liposuction and liposculpture

What is Liposculpture?

Liposculpture is a superficial liposuction, performed in the subcutaneous layer closest to the skin; instead liposuction is performed deeper. Liposculpture and liposuction permanently discard the subcutaneous fat cells called adipocytes: the fat cells will not reforme, so the liposculpture result is definite.

Why would you want a liposuction?

Lose weight and look slimmer

Liposculpture and liposuction allow to lose at least two or three sizes: Dr. Borra works on thighs, knees, stomach, hips, back, arms, neck and chest areas where fat tends to remain even after diets and physical activity .


A flat stomach is easier to get than you think. A few minutes and a quick operation performed masterfully by Dr. Borra won’t  separate you from your favorite jeans.

Defined buttocks

In suitable cases we can perform liposuction and liposculpture also on the buttocks: in this case the removal of the subcutaneous fat is superficial, just below the dermis; it is indeed a real liposculpture (superficial liposuction) that has a lifting effect on the lower parts of the buttocks.


Every summer you suffer wearing long sleeves to cover big arms. Liposuction can help you here too.

Knees to show off

With liposuction Dr. Borra removes the fatty deposits around and near the knees.


Do not deny it: you’ve always wanted to get rid of those fat pads on the thighs, both inside and outside of your legs. If this is what you want just trust Dr. Borra who always performs perfect liposuctions.

Double chin

With a small cannula Dr. Borra can remove double chin fat to improve your profile.


Liposuction is perfect to define your abs and your chest. Dr. Borra uses his artistic talent to sculpt your body as you want.

Love handles

Slim your waist by removing fat from the hips: find an enviable silhouette with a few minutes operation.

What do you obtain from a liposuction?

Smooth skin

Liposuction and liposculpture should be performed with very fine cannulas, the only ones that guarantee excellent results, without irregularities or holes after surgery.

A job in a workmanlike manner, performed by an expert

As demonstrated during an operation performed in 2008 for TSI (Swiss Television), liposuction performed by Dr. Borra, with proper technique, is a safe procedure and respectful of the body.

What can you expect from your first consultation:

If you are considering this procedure, come to Dr. Borra. The consultation may last an hour. In your consultation, Dr. Borra will:

You will speak about your needs and he will describe the results you’ll get from your treatment.  It is very important that you and your surgeon are in agreement on the aesthetic  result in order to achieve  what you desire. Call today for a consultation with Dr. Borra which has more than 3000 patients.


What do you want to know about liposuction?

Your liposuction can be an outpatient procedure, but it does not mean that it is a minor operation, as you might think.

After your consultation and a visit to his medical office in Lugano, Dr. Borra will estimate how long it takes to perform the procedure and whether to be hospitalized overnight or not.

Dr. Borra takes his time to be sure you get a wonderful result.

``Remember, the result is what really counts.``

Lipofilling e cellule staminali: completa la tua liposcultura

For the best possible result, we expect that Dr. Borra will perform liposculpture under anesthesia.

Very often fat that’s been sucked and still contained in the membranes of living cells, is not thrown away by Dr. Borra, but reused on the same patient to give volume to the breasts, buttocks or to rejuvenate hands and face.

Stamina cells
Fat is rich in stem cells. Dr. Borra will be happy to give you the chance to retain part of them in a cell bank for future use for anti-aging treatments.

``Fat is not beautiful, but it can be very useful: I always prefer to use it in strategic places, or preserve stem cells for the future.``
Dr. Luca Borra

Why Dr. Borra’s liposculpture is different?

Dr. Borra performes liposuction with advanced techniques.

Liposculpture. Suction of fat tissue in the surface. It gives precise and defined contours to the buttocks and thighs.

Swollenness. Meticulous infiltration of local anesthetic prepares the fat for a liposculpture without trauma.

Sterility. Dr. Borra, unlike others, operates in the surgery room and uses a meticulous sterility also for this kind of surgery. Often in fact, liposuction is treated as a minor operation, but it is not like this.

Laser. Dr. Borra reserves the laser only to liposuction on obese patients, where he must suck large amounts of fat: it is less delicate and less precise, but suitable for important suction  quantities.

Lipofilling. Dr. Borra willingly offers to use adipose tissue as lipofiller. Fat is rich in stem cells and can be transplanted into useful places of your body: the buttocks, face and hands to name the most requested.

What can you expect after surgery?

The same day

You will be constantly under observation until you are able to go home. Sometimes you will have to stay overnight. Someone will have to take you home and drive. At home you will need to be assisted for a day or two. At home it is important to rest for a few days. You can walk if you feel to do so. Remember to buy the medicines prescribed before surgery.

The first week

For two weeks after you should wear an elastic compression garment made in the USA that is provided directly by the medical office. You can take a shower after a few days. Bruises will appear and legs and feet will be a bit swollen: you will not worry as Dr. Borra will have told you that this is normal.

2 months

You will see yourself already better, but it takes time for the final result.

6 months

You will see yourself very well and you will be happy with your decision.
