What Can Liposculpture Do for You?
Posted July 08, 2010 in Uncategorized
Liposculpture, as opposed to Liposuction, is a minimally invasive procedure which involves removing localized fat deposits from certain areas of the body (abdomen, buttocks, thighs, knees, chin, cheeks, neck). In Beverly Hills Liposculpture is becoming much more popular than traditional tumescent liposuction, because it is much more accurate, less invasive, and delivers similar results with little to no downtime. Liposculpture is the only method that can permanently reshape the fatty deposits that create an imbalance between parts of the body and which are due to a hereditary characteristic and not overweight.
As a Liposuction alternative Beverly Hills specialists suggest liposculpture where applicable. Liposculpture (also known as laser lipo) can be employed for reshaping the abdominal area to give the appearance of six-pack abs, or on the thighs and buttocks to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Likewise, liposculpture may be employed around the jawline to reduce the “double chin” effect, “turkey neck” and hanging jowels, giving the effects of a necklift without invasive surgery. For men suffering from gynecomastia, also known as “man boobs,” liposculpture may be employed to reduce and reshape the chest area.
The Liposculpture Beverly Hills technique is much less invasive that traditional liposuction. During this relatively short procedure, sometimes also called SmartLipo Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeons use a thin cannula that can be introduced subcutaneously, through micro-incisions. On small areas, the intervention can be performed under local anesthesia, or epidural anesthesia (from the waist down). Because of this minimally invasive technique, there are no scars, no stitches, little to no bruising, and most patients are able to return to their regular activities the very next day.
Liposculpture may not be right for everyone, especially those who are looking for much more dramatic results, or who want to remove large areas of fat. In this case, traditional liposuction with body sculpting may be the better option. Call Dr. Berger for a consultation today to see if liposculpture is right for you.
