Liposculpture is a procedure that incorporates liposuction, in order to alter the shape of specific body parts. At Cascade Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medical Spa liposculpture is somewhat of an art form, where the surgeon carefully develops an incision strategy combined with years of experience in understanding how different parts of the body react to fat reduction or fat augmentation.
It’s important to remember, that liposculpture is intended to remove small amounts of fat to alter the shape of a specific body part. It is not a viable or effective treatment options for obesity or obesity related health issues.
Having liposculpture performed on a small area of the body might only require a local anesthetic to numb the area.
During the procedure the Cascade Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medical Spa surgeon makes a small incision in the skin. Then a thin tube called a cannula is inserted and carefully worked back and forth to loosen layers of fatty tissue. The fat deposits are then removed by a surgical vacuum. In some cases, the excess fat might be used to accentuate another part of the body as part of a fat augmentation procedure.
Your recovery time will vary based on location and just how much fat was removed as well as your age and overall health. Smoking and certain medications might cause bleeding issues or cause complications. So be sure to tell your surgeon about any medical conditions or medications you are taking.
