What is Liposculpture?

Liposculpture is a refined form of liposuction used mainly for reducing fat and re-sculpting the body for aesthetic appeal. Liposculpture, or tumescent liposuction, is different from ordinary liposuction since it involves lesser invasion and more precision and is performed with miniature instruments under local anesthetics.

Who Should Opt For Liposculpture?

Both men and women who have been unable to lose ungainly fat even after exercise and dieting can opt for Liposculpture. However, since the surgery is contraindicated in case of many common ailments like heart diseases and diabetes, only your plastic surgeon will be able to tell you whether you can go for Liposculpture or not. A Liposculpture is the best possible solution for those who want to remove “hard to get rid of” fat from under the chin, thighs, tummy, hips, knees, calves, flanks and arms.

The Liposculpture Process

Extremely thin (2mm approx) hollow tubes called cannulas are inserted through quarter inch incisions in the area from which fat is to be removed. A tumescent solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine, which acts as an anesthetic and loosens and liquefies the fat tissues to be removed is injected before the fat is sucked out through the cannulas. Pain during the procedure is minimal and most patients are asked to change positions and stand up during surgery in order to provide the best results. A tumescent lipoplasty may take anything from two to four hours depending upon the complexity of the plastic surgery being performed.

Liposculpture - Benefits

A liposculpture can provide you with well toned and well sculpted body parts in a very short time, and is especially great for areas from which loosing fat is next to impossible.

Liposculpture - Risks and Side Effects

Like all plastic surgery procedures, a liposculpture also carries a risk of bleeding, infection, scarring or disfigurement, but these are very rare.

Liposculpture -  Recovery

Most patients can drive themselves back home after a liposculpture and resume work within a couple of days. Within two weeks, a patient can be fully healed.
