Localized fat deposit problems that were proven resistant to diet and exercise need a more serious medical treatment, one possible alternative is liposuction. Most people and medical experts as well, suggest that since liposuction is a major cosmetic surgery, proper and careful decision making and choice of doctor should initially be ensured. Plain and simple fat removal is no longer the fad these days, alongside with fat elimination comes body shaping and contouring, hence, liposculpture is the best to target both of these objective.

What is Liposculpture?

Liposculpture is commonly intertwined with liposuction, but the two are distinct types of cosmetic surgery. Liposculpture is the advanced version of liposuction. Liposculpture is a form of liposuction or fat removal surgery performed under tumescent anesthesia allowing the body to be sculptured or contoured in 3D or the best and perfect shape. The procedure is also distinct in a way that the patient is not treated under general anesthesia allowing certain change of position to properly visualize the 3D perspective at all angles.

In general liposculpture involves a more cautious and definitive liposuction process where the primary goal is not only to eliminate fat but the ideal contouring of the body as well that would blend with the rest of the body at a more pleasing shape. Liposculpture can be performed on most part of the body like the abdominal area or the tummy, thighs, arms, including the more delicate face. Liposculpture is said to be best undertaken on the thigh area, a body part that essentially requires some residual fat to remain desirable and comfortable.

How does Liposculpture work?

Every liposculpture surgery would require the aid of tumescent solution that would act as anesthesia, reduce bleeding, and, fat deposit breaker. The tumescent solution is composed of local anesthetic, adrenaline, and parts of sodium bicarbonate in normal saline. For most surgeons, this anesthetic is more than enough, but for the most sensitive patients, additional anesthesia or other form of sedative is applied. The solution will take in effect ones the tissues get numb, bleeding has ceased due to blood vessel constriction, and the fat cell swell up and become weak.

After which, the fat removal procedure will be initiated since the fat deposits can already be removed easily by the use of fine needles. The finer needles or tubes that will suck out the fats are positioned through tiny holes strategically spaced at various points on the body part being treated. During the fat suction, the surgeon’s keen eye should be observant on the contouring needed for that body part, hence, he proceeds and stops or moves to another area once the desired amount of fat has been removed. After the procedure, the patient is asked to stand upright to see whether further adjustments are necessary.

Is Liposculpture effective?

Liposculpture is very much effective in eliminating all those problematic fat deposits whether they are located in the abdomen, hips, thighs, waist, ankles, calves, arms, buttocks, flanks, chin, jowls, and on the breast area. Alongside with fat removal is its capability to shape up and contour the body as deemed necessary. When it comes to the surgery’s effectiveness, it could only be backed-up or negated by patients who have actually availed of it. has 49 patients who underwent liposculpture surgery. Out of this number, 76 percent agreed that liposculpture is really effective, and the cost of the surgery is well worth the results. One of the patients who agreed wrote: “I had liposuction/liposculpture of my upper and lower abdomen, hips, love handles, inner thighs, outer thighs, and knees on Wednesday May 27, 2009. So far I can see a dramatic difference in my stomach, hips, and love handles, which were my main problem areas that bothered me the most.”

On the other hand, the remaining percentage of patients is either undecided (still on their healing period) or said that liposculpture did not provide major difference: “I had vaser liposculpture almost one year ago and had work done on three areas of my body, the stomach, the inner thighs and the back of my thighs. I had suffered from an eating disorder and was trying to get over it so I decided to have this procedure done. I had severe swelling and bruising, much more than usual and only after 11 months am I starting to see small improvements in the swelling in my upper thighs.”

Who may undergo Liposculpture surgery?

Proponents of this cosmetic surgery cite that the main objective of the liposculpture surgery is to improve the body shape or contour, fat removal is just an accessory goal. Since this is not for the “massive weight loss” type, ideal candidates are those that have pockets of stubborn fat, those that exhibit on the love handles, saddle bags, inner thighs and the upper arm region. Liposculpture is not recommended for the overweight individuals. For all other fat problems, it is always necessary that a doctor’s advice is initially obtained.
Liposculpture risks and health hazards
Similar to traditional liposuction, liposculpture has also its own set of health hazards. These risks may be as simple as redness or swelling up to the more serious ones that may lead to death. Skin dimpling and the unevenness of texture or contour is the primary risk. This risk may be experienced when the fat suction done is too close to the dermal layer or the skin’s surface. Loose skin caused by absence of the required elasticity is also one possibility, remember, certain deposit of fat is still required to keep the skin firm. Poor surgery results are evident when all angles are not carefully assessed by the surgeon. Certain toxicity levels that can possibly be acquired from local anesthesia may occur after the surgery. We can add some infection and scarring, and risks of death due to organ puncture, fat embolism or severe bleeding. Of course, the treatment won’t ensure that perfect figure all throughout, since fats may still be gained when the lifestyle and eating habits are not adjusted accordingly.

How much does liposculpture cost?

Liposculpture cost will be dependent on the patient’s arrangement with the doctor, the type of liposculpture to be administered or the particular body part to be treated, the size or number of that particular body area and the estimated amount of fat needed to be eliminated. The degree of difficulty in terms of shaping or contouring that body part would also come into play. Finally, incremental costs include the equipment, facilities, anesthesia, medications, etc. Based on patient reviews and cosmetic surgeon interviews, the average cost of liposculpture is tagged at$6,300.
