Liposculpture - The Finer Science of Body Sculpting

Liposculpture | Body Sculpting 

As far as advances in plastic surgery goes, the science of body sculpting has grown in leaps and bounds since liposuction came into fashion in the 1980’s. Continuing progress in lipoplasty technology is giving people better choices when it comes to results and costs. An example of such a development is the procedure called liposculpture.

Liposuction liposculpture comparison 

Since it is a direct innovation of liposuction, liposculpture is essentially the same in process as traditional lipoplasty. The basic procedure is to remove the excess body fat using a sterile tube known as a cannula. The probe is then inserted through an incision into the fat layer. Then, by means of a suction device, body fats are removed from the area.

In traditional liposuction, general anesthesia is used in performing the procedure. On the other hand, in liposculpture, only a local anesthetic is injected into the area of the body along with a saline tumescent fluid that is used to breakdown the body fat. The injected solution makes it easier to siphon out the fat. In addition, liposculpture uses a smaller cannula and is therefore less invasive than earlier lipoplasty techniques. The result is that it is more effective at lipolysis, there is less risk involved, bruising is minimal and recovery is faster.

With the refinements introduced by liposculpture, more patients and plastic surgeons choose it over traditional suction lipectomy. It is very effective for many cases and is particularly best performed for sculpting smaller areas or when the patient wants minimal scarring. Because of its wide acceptance as a cosmetic procedure, people have grown accustomed to using both terms interchangeably.
