What Is Liposculpture?

While in the same “cosmetic family” as liposuction, liposculpture is a more advanced cosmetic surgery. Liposculpture is designed to perform more excessive body contouring through the removal and reshaping of fat deposits. It is used to enhance the definition of muscles and remove fat from problem areas, such as the stomach, neck, and chin.

How are Liposuction and Lipsculpture Different?

Liposuction and liposculpture vary in a few unique ways; however, both treatment options offer a variety of benefits to patients. Benefits include: reduced healing time, less invasive cosmetic procedures, precise cell targeting, and reduced levels of body fat. The various differences between the two cosmetic procedures, include the following:

  • Liposculpture uses a local anesthetic to help keep potential bleeding and swelling to a minimum.
  • Liposuction typically removes more fat than liposculpture; however, liposculpture typically reshapes larger amounts of fat.
  • Liposculpture is typically used to achieve impactful body sculpting results; in this way, liposculpture provides precise results.
  • Liposuction is typically used on patients with larger amounts of excess fat.
  • Liposculpture is not typically used for large weight loss results.
