Liposculpture Can Be Combined With Other Cosmetic Treatments

Liposculpture is really another name for tumescent liposuction, in which small steel cannulas (straws) are inserted into areas of stubborn fat, where ultrasound energy breaks up the fat and the cannulas remove it from the body. It is a permanent fat-removal procedure. Liposculpture can also refer to the removal of fat along the muscles – such as six packs -- to further define them. Liposculpture can be done under general or local anesthesia. Many patients like to combine liposculpture with other cosmetic procedures, so as to minimize downtime. These can be surgical, such as breast augmentation, or nonsurgical such as skin tightening with Thermi. Please consult a board-certified dermatologist to discuss your desires and find out what procedures will work for you.

What procedures can be combined with it?

Hello dear, thanks for your post! liposcuplture is the surgical procedure that revolutionized cosmetic surgery becoming one of the most performed cosmetic procedures. Subcutaneous tissue or fat is removed in order to contour the body in a way that is harmonious and pleasing to the senses. It can be performed in almost all regions of the body such as the neck, chin, abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and ankles. Usually done through a small incision in the skin through which a cannula connected to a vacuum is applied, it can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures. combinig procedures is really common, you can combine liposuction with tummy tuck, breast, bbl, depending on your needs and health condition. Good luck :)

What is Liposculpture? What procedures can be combined with it?

It is a pleasure to answer your question. Liposculpture is a surgical procedure that improves the body's contour by removing excess fat from deposits located between the skin and muscle. Liposculpture involves the use of a small stainless steel tube, called cannula. This procedure uses ultrasound to break fat into small sections before removal. Other surgical procedure can be combined with Liposculpture like Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Tummy Tuck, etc. I recommend you visit a board certified plastic surgeon. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Vaser Hi Definition Liposculpture/ Liposuction/Fat Grafting/ BBL

Thank you for your question.

I have done many body contouring procedures and specialize in Vaser Hi Definition liposculpture.

Vaser Hi Definition liposuction uses the concepts of negative and positive spaces in relation to the underlying bony and muscle anatomy to define areas such as your six pack and create an athletic looking physique.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.

Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
