What is liposculpture?
Liposculpture is a surgical procedure that is used to give you more muscle tone and shapeliness. It treats little pockets of fat, unlike liposuction which covers larger areas.
Instead of just removing fat, liposculpture also moves it around to create the desired shape. It can be particularly useful in areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise.
Liposculpture works best if you have good skin elasticity, which is generally true for those who are younger, have darker skin tones, don’t smoke, and don’t have much sun damage.
The ideal candidate is close to their ideal weight and has a BMI under 30. It may not work well if you have weakened muscles or loose skin from age or pregnancy.
How much does liposculpture cost?
The average cost of liposculpture is $5,350. with a price range from $1,400 to $9,200 depending on the number of areas treated, the location, and the use of anesthesia.
How does liposculpture work?
Most surgeons use the tumescent technique, which helps limit blood loss and scarring. During the procedure, the doctor injects a sterile solution containing numbing medicine. He then makes a tiny incision and places a small tube, or cannula, under the skin into the fat.
The doctor uses the tube to move the fat, release it, and then remove it with a suction. Sometimes the fat is purified, processed, and transferred to other parts of the body, like the buttocks or face, to enhance features in those areas.
Liposculpture generally takes between two and four hours. Local anesthesia is given and sometimes oral sedation as well. If the area is larger, general anesthesia or intravenous sedation can be given.
What to expect after liposculpture?
After surgery, swelling and bruising are experienced. This is normal and goes away after a few weeks.
Results appear immediately after surgery, but might not be seen right away. The results take about six months to become fully apparent. During this time, the body continues to heal and readjust.
How can we enhance the results with our French technique?
To help certain side effects and to help maintain results after liposculpture, we recommend Palper Rouler body contouring.
Indeed, since the most common side effects of liposculpture are rippled skin, lumpiness and scarring above or below the skin. It’s possible for a patient to have bumpy or wavy skin that doesn’t go away.
To minimize those side effects we recommend to get lymphatic sessions from 5 days after the procedure and continue with Palper Rouler treatments.
The lymphatic massage is designed to reduce inflammation in your body and help the body heal.
And then, always accompanied by a lymphatic massage, the Palper Rouler massage decongests the engorged zones, softens the tissues, frees the fascia and activates both the blood and lymphatic circulation, helping to eliminate remaining fat deposits, diminish water retention, and flush out toxins.
In order to maintain the body’s lymphatic drainage and venous circulation at its best, to prevent fat accumulation and the typical orange peel appearance, integrating Palper Rouler into your monthly routine will maintain your beautiful skin all year long! We recommend a massage once or twice a month for the best ongoing results.
