For those women and men who want to reshape their figure and contour their bodies there is a solution, therefore their self-image will not be a problem anymore. Have you listened about liposculpture before?

What is a liposculpture?

Liposculpture is the medical term used to define a type of liposuction procedure that is executed with tumescent suction. Thence, once the tumescent fluid, that makes the body become solid and firm, is suctioned, the body tissues expand and facilitate the sculpting process. Therefore, the cosmetic procedure is easier. In other words, if the subcutaneous fats are removed to redefine the area, the patient has a liposculpture.

This is an aesthetic surgery whose main purpose is to contour a local part of the body, usually to have the desired figure or and feel confident with the currently owned. Most of liposcupture patients do not have post-surgery problems, few at least. The special anesthetic lasts more or less 24 hours, later the tissue and muscles will be stiff or tight. It is recommended to wear compression garments or bandages to support the area, and make the patients feel comfortable.

How liposculpture is performed?

First of all, the patient will be in company of a qualified surgeon and nurse. The area, where the fat is going to be treated, is marked before the procedure. This procedure has to be under local anesthetic, which means the patient is given an analgesic in form of intramuscular injection, often 3mm tiny incision in the subcutaneous tissue, to paralyze   the area and turn the fat cells liquid. Then, the fat is taken out by means of cannula, or a recent vibrotechnique. Patient’s vital signs, specially the pulse and the blood pressure should be monitored constantly during the entire process. The liquid fat is drained away throughout the same incision. The patient may be asked to stand up in order to carry out the procedure with the stand figure, which is pretty different from the lying position. Finally, all the adjustments are applied. This operation usually lasts between 90 minutes or 130 minutes.

What is a liposuction?

Liposuction, also known as lipoplastic or lipectomy, makes reference to the aesthetic surgery with the aim of reshaping specific areas of the human body by reducing and removing excess of fat deposits. That is, modeling the body figure to achieve a slimmer constitution. Patients opt for this operation to improve their frame, contours and proportions. It can be carried out on thighs, hips, buttock, abdomen, upper arms and lower legs under general anesthesia. It has to be mention that this procedure is not a weight-loss tool, but a cosmetic procedure, that means; you can get the fat deposits again in the future after the liposuction. However, it is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries since it is used to improve physical appearance, although a healthy lifestyle can achieve the same results in a longer period of time.

How is liposuction done?

Before the surgery, patients need to have some health test to ensure their optimal physical conditions. They are recommended to take anti-inflammatory medicines, or iron supplements in case of anemia; women may be asked to stop contraceptive pill consumption. This procedure under general anesthetic can take between 60 minutes or 240 minutes (two hours). During the liposuction, there are saline solutions being pumped under the skin where the fat will be extracted. Then, the fat cells are sucked out through tiny suctions tubes. There is an ultrasound-assisted liposuction that consists on the use of a cannula energized with ultrasound that makes the fat melt away to be easily suctioned. Other option is the power-assisted liposuction, which uses a cannula that moves rapidly back-and-forth the fat to put it away. And lastly, the procedure may be laser-assisted that requires a tumescent fluid use. This one is less invasive and bloody than the rest of the options.

What is the difference between liposculpture and liposuction?

Liposculpture and liposuction vary in few aspects. Bearing in mind that both are beneficial to patients since these surgeries reduce healing time, are less invasive and are precise cell-target when reducing body’s fat levels; the main differences are in the procedure of each one. First of all, liposculpture uses local anesthesia to minimize the potential bleeding, while liposuction uses general anesthetic. Besides, liposuctions tend to removes more fat cells from the deposits than liposculpture, although liposculpture reshapes larger amounts of fat. Finally, the time that takes each procedure is different and depends on each case. Liposuction usually lasts more than the liposculpture. As it has been previously said, these cosmetic surgeries are little distinct one form another. It can be even said that liposculpture is a variation of the traditional liposuction.
