LipoSculpture

"LipoSculpture" and"Liposuction" are often used interchangeably, substantial differences exist between the two in cosmetic plastic surgery. Basically, LipoSculpture is a more refined version of Liposuction.

  • What are the Types of LipoSculpture?

    During LipoSculpture procedure, some of the patient's body fat is transplanted from one spot to another where fat may be lacking. Thus, the procedure allows a surgeon to "sculpt" new body contours. The areas most often subjected to this type of LipoSculpture are the lips and the female derriere in the vast majority of cases. In those instances, the surgeon liposuctions fat from one or several donor areas on the patient, prepares the fat cells and then injections them into the deficient areas to create more pronounced curves. (This type of LipoSculpture is also known as "fat grafting," "fat transfer" and "fat injection.")

    More commonly, however, LipoSculpture refers to the procedures in which surgeons remove fat to provide better definition to certain muscles and a far sleeker appearance for the patient. For instance, a common area that undergoes LipoSculpture is the stomach.

  • Benefits of LipoSculpture:

    Aside from the visual effects of removing excess, unwanted fat, most patients find that their clothes tend to fit better. Moreover, a trim, firm abdomen may provide a psychological lift. In fact, some find that shedding extra fat results in making physical exercise more pleasurable, thus providing an incentive to exercise regularly to enhance one's fitness level.

  • How Much Pain is Associated With LipoSculpture?

    While the time required for a procedure varies from surgeon to surgeon, liposuction usually requires about an hour and is virtually painless. The longer the procedure is expected to take, the more likely that general anesthesia will be used. If the amount of fat to be removed is fairly small, it is common for the procedure to be performed with local anesthetic ,If larger amounts of fat are to be removed, the patient may need to spend the night in the hospital

  • What are the Long-Term Effects of LipoSculpture?

    For most LipoSculpture patients, most of the associated bruising and swelling should subside within the first two to three weeks and usually requires a compression device to be worn for 24 hours a day for a month after procedures of the torso. To expedite the healing process, patients may be encouraged to begin light activity as soon as possible. Furthermore, depending on the patient's job, liposuction patients should be able to return to work within a few days if the work is fairly sedentary in nature. Regardless, liposuction patients should avoid strenuous activities for several weeks while the body naturally heals.

    Most LipoSculpture patients may be able to resume most normal activities within four to six weeks. Compression garments are easily concealed under clothing and should be worn until the surgeon indicates that it is no longer necessary.

    Results should be visible within two to four months. Full effects may not be evident for six months to a year. The more fat removed, the longer it will take to achieve optimal results because the skin has to adapt to a more radical change in shape.

    After LipoSculpture, it is important for patients to maintain their weight and body with exercise and proper diet. Because fat cells are permanently removed, future weight gain will not occur in the treated areas. But the patient may gain weight or fat deposits in other areas of the body. Moreover, since fat cells have been removed from the treatment area, subsequent weight gain may appear uneven. Also, because the aging process directly affects the firmness and elasticity of the skin, older patients may not achieve the same sleek results as younger patients.
