It is safe to receive a globular package transfusion before liposculpture?

Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well.. This is the surgical procedure that revolutionized cosmetic surgery becoming one of the most performed cosmetic procedures. Subcutaneous tissue or fat is removed in order to contour the body in a way that is harmonious and pleasing to the senses. It can be performed in almost all regions of the body such as the neck, chin, abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and ankles. Usually done through a small incision in the skin through which a cannula connected to a vacuum is applied, it can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures. After liposuction your body is going to be really swollen for at least 2 to 4 months after your surgery. It is important for you to wear your compression garment for at least 6 months, the first 3 months 24/7 and then the last 3 months at least 12 hours per day for your body get use to not having the faja for so many time. When you remove it, your body can get swollen and also you can have pain. Remember to also compress your body to prevent a seroma which is an accumulation of liquid that has to be drained, it is hard to touch and also really painful. Bruises are completely normal for almost 3 months from surgery, that’s why is better for you to use a bruising cream and apply it all over your body 3 times a day. To prevent bad circulation and swollen legs, use compression socks. Brazilian butt lift can be performed with the same procedure and for a month it will be swollen and it will drop a little bit without losing it’s shape if you use your garment.. If you’re going to perform liposuction on your inner, outer, anterior, lateral, postetior thighs, be careful and consult with your surgeon what’s best for you, sometimes we have more extra skin than fat, that can cause severe sagginess on our legs, which can be only be reversed performing a thigh lift…

Hello dear, happy to answer,

Transfusion before liposuction

I do not know what a globular transfusion is. In any case, you should not need a transfusion of any sort prior to the liposuction. If you are not a good candidate for medical reasons, then you should just not have the surgery. Is this some type of vitamin or nutrient treatment? or is he transfusing blood? Again, it should not be necessary. What may be necessary is that you get a second opinion. Best of luck.

Globular package transfusion?

I don't even know what this is, and I've been doing successful liposuction procedures for nearly 16 years.  That said, I doubt this globular package transfusion is "necessary" to get a great result from liposuction.  If you're being told to have a transfusion to raise your hemoglobin level prior to an elective plastic surgery procedure, you should keep looking for another surgeon.  The underlying source of your anemia should be identified and treated prior to any elective plastic surgery.
