8 Things You Need to Know About Liposculpture

Do you have trouble areas that just won’t budge regardless of your diet and exercise routine?

Maybe you’ve always disliked where you carry weight. Or you’re just so close to that sculpted look you’ve always dreamed of. Perhaps you’re really worried about loose skin after weight loss.

Liposculpture may be the solution you’re looking for.

There’s a reason that Lipo is the #1 cosmetic procedure in the U.S. And there are many reasons you should consider liposculpture. Let’s look at what you need to know about this popular procedure.

1) What Is Liposculpture?

Liposculpture is the procedure that celebrities love. Even if you’re not a celebrity, you can still use this procedure to target certain areas of the body.

As a “tumescent” technique, it permanently removes fat deposits from that target area. For the procedure, a cosmetic surgeon uses a laser fiber to disintegrate fat in a very targeted way.

The surgeon then removes the fat with a syringe or suction pump through a tiny incision. It’s a much less invasive and traumatic experience when compared to traditional liposuction but helps you achieve amazing results.

2) It’s Not a Weight Loss Procedure

You may lose some weight because your surgeon is removing fat cells from your body. But it’s important to realize that this procedure isn’t to help people lose weight.

If you need to lose weight, then you should do that by making healthy lifestyle changes before seeking this procedure.

A healthy lifestyle is essential to both getting the best results and maintaining them.

Even though this procedure dissolves and removes fat cells permanently, if you continue to gain weight, the fat cells that remain will “pick up the slack”.

3) It Helps You Achieve a More Contoured Shape

What this procedure does is target specific areas of the body where you may hold fat that makes your body look irregular or unbalanced.

Sometimes when people lose weight or gain a small amount of unwanted weight, certain parts of the body look more sculpted than others.

Liposculpture evens the body out for a smoother, more flawless look.

4) It’s Not For Everyone

Because this procedure isn’t a weight loss procedure, it’s not for everyone.

The ideal candidate is an overall healthy individual who:

This individual is ideally no more than 20-25 pounds from their ideal weight. They’ve done all the right things to get — or keep — those final 20 pounds off. But they need some support.

Or this person may not like the way that their body “carries weight”. Liposculpture can help you achieve that more sculpted look that you just can’t seem to get from diet and exercise alone.

5) It Requires Skill & Precision

This procedure is performed by a skilled surgeon who understands how to help you get the best results. Your doctor will help you:

  • Understand if you’re a good candidate
  • What you may need to do before the procedure
  • What recovery’s like
  • How to get and maintain best results after the procedure

Finding a surgeon who has that level of skill and precision to provide you with the results you seek should be paramount. Atlanta Face & Body can offer this and much more to prospective patients!

6) What You Can Expect After the Procedure

Any significant cosmetic procedure will do some trauma to the body. The surgeon’s goal is to minimize this trauma while helping you get the best results.

Just like other procedures, there will be bruising and swelling as the body works to heal itself and adapt to having fewer fat cells.

You’ll wear a compression girdle for between two weeks to a month, depending on how extensive the procedure is and how you’re healing.

Typically, all swelling and bruising are gone within about three weeks.

The incisions are very small (less than 3mm). That’s about 1/10 of an inch. This means that any scars that do remain are nearly imperceivable.

After recovery, you can expect a body with a more sculpted appearance. It’s important to realize that the sculpted appearance may not include six-pack abs or a toned tush. Muscle tone requires exercise.

What it will do is better reveal your muscle tone in these target areas so that you can get more positive reinforcement from your workouts.

7) Exercise is Important to Your Recovery

Your doctor may also put you on an exercise regimen that will be adapted along the way to help you get the best results.

This exercise routine may start before you actually feel like exercising. You may still have a little swelling and discomfort when the doctor orders call for you to begin resuming activity.

Understand that the right types of exercise at the right times along the healing process are important to helping you get the best liposculpture results.

Don’t push yourself too hard, too early but also don’t ignore doctor’s orders when they say it’s time to start exercising again.

8) Liposculpture Isn’t as Expensive as You Think

Liposculpture is likely less expensive than you think. While prices can vary based upon what you want done, the average cost for the procedure in the U.S. is between $2000 – $5000, depending on the area treated.

For most of us, paying around this price to achieve that smoother body that you know you deserve is no object.

Uncover a New You With Liposculpture

Liposculpture isn’t intended to help you lose weight. But it can help you get past those final hurdles to reveal the body you’ve been striving for.

It’s less invasive than traditional lipo, which means less trauma and faster healing. Following doctors orders in regards to diet and exercise will help you recover faster and get better results.
