Liposculpture Treatment Abroad
Liposculpture, a cosmetic surgical procedure, is used both for men and women, to remove and sometimes reshape fat to make the body muscles more prominent and reshape certain problem areas of the body such as the stomach, the inner/outer thighs, calves, or buttocks, but also the chin, jowls, and neck
The fat harvested in liposculpture will be used to enhanced other areas of the body, resulting in the perfect shape.
As opposed to liposuction, liposculpture removes less amounts of fat and is more used to reshape and sculpt the body. The procedure usually lasts between 30 and 90 minutes depending on the number of areas and the complexity of the process. But depending on the area and the size of the patient, the procedure can take sometimes from two to four hours.
Liposculpture is an advanced form of liposuction used particularly in the process of body and face contouring. Liposculpture is an alternative, minimally invasive form of liposuction pioneered in the late 20th century. Rather than using large incisions to remove fat from the body, liposculpture uses small suction mechanism to target specific fat deposits under the skin. The procedure is used to contour or fine tune areas of the body, rather than to completely re-sculpt it.
Two of the most common liposculpture procedures nowadays are UAL, or ultrasonic assisted liposculpture and tumescent liposculpture.
UAL Liposculpture Procedure
During this type of liposculpture an ultrasound probe is used to transform the fat into a liquid before it is sucked out of the body by something called a “cannula”. A “cannula” is used in all methods of liposculpture and is a special tube that has been designed as a suction device for the fatty tissue. This method is preferred for more fibrous parts of the body, such as the male breast area or the upper back.
Tumescent Liposculpture Procedure
This type of liposculpture is one of the most common procedures used for cosmetic surgery. It can safely and permanently remove excess fat deposits that are unresponsive to exercise and diet. Before the procedure the surgeon will fill the fatty areas that are going to be removed with a special solution that will cause the fatty area to swell. The local anesthetic in the solution will numb the area, which cuts out the need for intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.
