Liposculpture and Liposuction – is there a difference?
Whilst liposuction has been available for a number of years, liposculpture is a relatively newer term. So what, you may ask, is the difference, and what would be best for me?
The truth is that there is very little difference, and if there is any it is subtle.
Both are technically the same procedure as they both relate to the removal of fat via a tube. Liposuction is more likely to describe procedures covering an entire area, whereas liposculpture may refer to a smaller area.
By definition it is looking to sculpt the appearance, so as well as removing fat it will help to improve the shape of the fat that is left behind. With liposuction you arguably will also be looking for a pleasing appearance after the procedure, too.
It really is just down to semantics so when you are wondering what to opt for, worry less about what it is termed and instead get to the crux of what really matters – is it suitable for you, what are the risks, and what is the realistic outcome.
Your doctor will be able to help answer these questions and therefore help you reach your decision of which liposuction surgery is best for you.
