Liposculpture

What is this?

Liposculpture is a more advanced cosmetic surgery. Liposculpture is designed to perform more excessive body contouring through the removal and reshaping of fat deposits.  This fat may be utilized to refill other areas of the body.  It is used to enhance the definition of muscles and remove fat from problem areas, such as the stomach, neck, and chin.

Procedure

Liposculpture is cosmetic surgery that removes small fat deposits between you’re the skin and your muscle via a small incision and a cannula to suction it out. This procedure differs from liposuction in that it´s performed in specific body areas with  less fat deposits allowing the doctor to achieve impactful precise body sculpting results.

 

The incisions are 5mm, where a saline solution is introduced into the tissues through small holes in the skin, and the local anaesthetic in the fluid has had enough time to work, small tubes or are introduced into the fatty layers. Suction is applied to the cannula while they are gently moved through the tissues and the unwanted fat is removed in a progressive fashion until the desired result is achieved. Most cannula used are 5mm  in diameter, and are substantially narrower than the cannula used in conventional liposuction. .Suction fat can be reinserted into your body to refill gluteal area, calves, breast or legs.  Scars are very small and almost invisible.

Duration

 

Four hours.

 

Anesthesia

 

Local anesthesia with intravenous sedative.  

 

Hospitalization

 

Normally is an outpatient procedure.

 

Recovery

 

Due to liposculpting being a more detailed and complex surgery, recovery takes longer.  Complete bed rest with prescribed pain medication must be adhered to for one week.  You will be required to wear a post-surgical body girdle and avoid sun exposure as well as nicotine and alcohol consumption.

 

Risks

 

Risks and complications are similar to liposuction:hemorrhaging , poor wound healing, seromas (fluid accumulation), infection, blood clots.  Other potential risks may be nerve or internal organ damage.

 

Results

 

Results are visible approximately one month after surgery.  Maintenance diet and exercise plan must be followed for more permanent results.
