Liposculpture surgery is performed in an operating room under sterile conditions. You will be given medication, which will relax you and make you feel comfortable.
Liposculpture is performed under a local anesthetic, combined with intravenous sedation if you wish. The styptic and anesthetic solution is injected via an incision barely 3mm long. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, the cosmetic surgeon will insert a cannula (fine metal tubes ) through several openings, in turn, into the fatty area and remove the excess fat by means of a syringe or suction pump.
Tumescent liposculpture is the advanced technique of permanently removing excess fat deposits in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is called tumescent (which means "to swell") because the cosmetic surgeon fills and swells the fatty areas to be removed with special solution before the procedure.
The ideal candidate for liposculpture is a person who is in good health, exercises regularly, maintains good eating habits and is within 25lbs of his or her ideal body weight
During the first week after the liposculpture, you will experience some stiffness and a mushy feeling in the treated areas. Especially in the first two days. Therefore it’s advisable to take it easy so that your body gets the chance to recover. Scars will be very small and become almost inconspicuous. The new contours of your figure will be visible after 2 to 3 weeks. It might however last 3 to 6 months until you get your definitive figure. Discomforts following cosmetic surgeon, like edema, bruising and tiredness, are restricted with this pre-operative treatment. A similar post-operative treatment will enhance a positive effect.
