"A rose by any other name...Shakespeare" Liposuction = Liposculpture
Would you rather be sucked or sculpted? The answer is obvious. The term liposculpture arose as a preferred alternative to liposuction primarliy to connote a better overall impression of sculpture versus suction. In the early years, some practitioners used this term to delineate a practice of lipoetching or superficial liposuction in which more delicate contouring (with a higher risk of creating contour irregularities) is carried out in the upper layers of the fat.
The difference between liposculpture and liposuction
The difference between these two techniques may depend on who you ask. In our practice, liposuction is the technique that we perform when we want to remove a significant volume of fat. Liposculpture is the technique that we use when we want to remove less fat but want to shape the remaining fat so that it mirrors the underlying muscles. Liposculpture will create a toned and more athletic appearance rather than just the bulk of the area of volume.

What distinguishes the Vaser Lipo procedure is its ability to differentiate fat from other important tissues — such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. Our innovative technology breaks up fat while preserving all other important tissues. This approach promotes smooth results and rapid healing.
The Difference Between Liposculpture and Liposuction
The difference between Liposculpture and Liposuction is really in the name. Liposculpture is really a marketing term developed to describe Liposuction. Liposuction is not meant to be a weight loss procedure. It is really meant to be a sculpting procedure where pockets of disproportion are removed and at the same time the area is sculpted to
create better contours.
