Liposuction and Liposculpture

by Artisan

Remove fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise

Scroll Down

Despite our best diet and exercise efforts, there are localised, stubborn fat deposits that just do not go away due to several factors such as our genes, unique anatomy, and differences in physiology.

Those parts of the body include the face, neck, abdomen, flanks, love handles, thighs, and knees. If you are looking for a procedure that can give you noticeable results and a more aesthetically pleasing body shape, liposuction and liposculpture could be the answer you are looking for.

What is liposuction and liposculpture?

Liposuction and liposculpture are aesthetic plastic surgery procedures that remove stubborn fat from some parts of the body such as the tummy, hips, thighs, face, etc.

These procedures help to sculpt the body, giving you a balanced, harmonious, and pleasing contour. 

Liposuction removes large areas of fats while liposculpture removes little pockets of fats. Liposculpture also moves fats around with the aim of sculpting your body to your desired shape and size. These procedures are not for weight loss and are not a treatment for obesity, they can only be performed in individuals with a stable weight but who wish to remove excess stubborn fats in certain areas.

How do liposuction and liposculpture work?

During the procedure, different cannulae (depending on the parts of the body that need to be treated) are used to remove fat through tiny incisions in the skin. These incisions are generally hidden along natural creases. The movement of the cannula carefully loosens the unwanted fat deposits, allowing them to be removed via suction. However, along with the fat, large amounts of fluids are also removed. It is therefore important to restore the fluid balance during and after the procedure with adequate monitoring. 

Liposuction and liposculpting will not treat saggy skin or cellulite, and your weight must be stable for at least three months prior to the procedure.

Benefits of liposuction and liposculpture

  • Shapes and sculpts body in single procedure (one anesthesia and one recovery process)
  • Small and inconspicuous scars at site of incision
  • Enhanced confidence
  • Refreshed, younger, sleek, and sculpted look 
  • Long lasting results   

What should I expect before the procedure?

During your first consultation, you and your surgeon will discuss your problem areas and desired results. Additionally, you will discuss on the following things:

Medical history

It is important to give honest answers with regards to your medical history. This allows your surgeon to make accurate and safe decisions with regards to the procedure. Inform your surgeon about any medications, surgeries, or allergies you have/had. You must also inform your surgeon if you have diabetes, circulatory problems, thyroid problems, and other health issues if any. 

Physical examination

Your surgeon will conduct a physical examination and help to identify any problem areas that can be treated with liposuction and liposculpting. 

After this, you and your surgeon will discuss the options available and the possible results with each option. Once the treatment plan has been decided for you, your procedure will be booked. Before the procedure, you must:

  • Stop smoking: smoking reduces blood flow to the skin and hinders the healing process. It also increases your risk of tissue damage.
  • Stop some medications: medications such as aspirins and anti-inflammatory drugs are blood thinners which may increase bleeding during and after the procedure.

What should I expect during the procedure?

Liposuction and liposculpting are performed in the following steps:

  • Anaesthesia is administered.
  • Small incisions are made at the site.
  • Cannulae attached to a vacuum are inserted into the incisions.
  • Fat is removed from the area.
  • Some fats are reshaped to give your body the desired contour.
  • Incisions are sutured up.
