I want to know what is the difference between bio sculpting and body contouring.

Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well.. This 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. After liposuction your body is going to be really swollen for at least 2 to 4 months after your surgery. It is important for you to wear your compression garment for at least 6 months, the first 3 months 24/7 and then the last 3 months at least 12 hours per day for your body get use to not having the faja for so many time. When you remove it, your body can get swollen and also you can have pain. Remember to also compress your body to prevent a seroma which is an accumulation of liquid that has to be drained, it is hard to touch and also really painful. Bruises are completely normal for almost 3 months from surgery, that’s why is better for you to use a bruising cream and apply it all over your body 3 times a day. To prevent bad circulation and swollen legs, use compression socks. Brazilian butt lift can be performed with the same procedure and for a month it will be swollen and it will drop a little bit without losing it’s shape if you use your garment.. If you’re going to perform liposuction on your inner, outer, anterior, lateral, postetior thighs, be careful and consult with your surgeon what’s best for you, sometimes we have more extra skin than fat, that can cause severe sagginess on our legs, which can be only be reversed performing a thigh lift…

Body contouring is a name for shaping the body through fat reduction

Body contouring and body sculpting are terms that refer to shaping the body through reducing areas of stubborn fat. Liposculpture as well as non-invasive procedures such as CoolSculpting or Vanquish all fall under the category of body contouring. Bio sculpting is not a term used commonly, but it most likely also refers to shaping the body through fat reduction.

Different names for liposuction

There are different technologies used for liposuction. There is standard suction assisted lipo, ultrasound, smart/laser lipo, power assisted, etc. One technology is not necessarily better than the other. What matters is your surgeon's experience with whatever method he is using. Regarding the terminology, there are many different names for essentially the same thing...removing fat. Some sound "fancier" than others but again, what matters is your surgeons experience. Best of luck.

Liposuction

Liposuction terminology includes such term as sculpting or contouring.  Much of this is related to marketing and there is little difference except the skill and technique of the surgeon.

Bio Sculpting Versus Body Contouring

I am not sure what biosculpting is but body contouring is a term used to talk about procedures used to shape the body with surgical and non surgical options.  My practice is dedicated to full body shaping with liposuction and fat transfer to get ultimate body results.  Best, Dr. Emer.
