Liposculpture improves body contour by removing the excess fat from different areas of the body by means of very thin drainers under negative pressure. It aims to deal with imperfections and beautify many body parts at the same time.
But what is the difference between liposculpture and liposuction? Liposuction is performed when we want to remove a significant amount of unwanted fat –which resists to diet and exercise- from various parts of the body. Liposuction is a more “sophisticated” type of liposuction, where the removed fat is used in other body parts to optimize curves (e.g. in the buttocks, hips, calves, etc.). During this time, the plastic surgeon, paying attention to the details and treating the body as a whole, remodelises it by removing fat and at the same time by injecting it into other areas of the body that need “filling”. That is, the fat is transferred from an area of the body, where there is excess, into another areas, where there is a deficit. Thus, liposculpture promotes a generally improved image and more attractive body contour. This technique, with the mechanical removal of fat and its use somewhere else, is advantageous compared to other techniques, such as laser liposuction, because the fat in this case is destroyed.
Body liposculpture lasts 1-2 hours and general, local or dorsal anesthesia is used. Discharge is usually given on the same day (day clinic). Recovery depends on the extent of the procedure, but usually does not exceed one week, so the return to work can be done. Prices depend on the extent of the problem and the type of anesthesia.
Because body shape and contour can be affected by weight gain, pregnancies, aging, heredity and lifestyle-related factors, it is crucial the adoption of healthy habits and weight stability for the maintenance of liposculpture effects.
