LIPOSCULPTURE (BODY SCULPTURING)
This information is designed to provide you with the relevant details related to the Liposculpture procedure and assist you in making an informed decision as to whether or not to undergo liposculpture surgery. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and speak to one of our trained consultants.
At ICCM we pride ourselves on assisting our patients to make a well informed decision and provide all relevant information, including any contra-indications or side effects of procedures.
As such we advise that although this type of surgery is generally very effective, as with all cosmetic surgery procedures, no guarantee can be made that a specific outcome will be achieved from the treatment.
What is liposculpture?
This is a procedure where excess fatty tissue at sites such as the abdomen, inner or outer thighs, buttocks, “love handles,” neck, or other areas, is removed through suction in order to achieve an improvement in the general contour of the body.
How is it done?
In modern liposculpture, the procedure is achieved using specially-designed steel cannulas which remove fat without damaging other tissues. The patient is given intravenous sedation first. The operative area is numbed using large volumes of very dilute anaesthetic. Adrenaline is added to reduce blood loss and increase the anaesthetic effect.
The surgeon then makes small incisions in the skin through which the cannulas are introduced. The cannula is attached to a suction device and fat is then removed through a gentle back-andforth movement of the cannula. This process is repeated at several levels and in different directions to produce a smooth final result.
What are the possible side-effects and complications?
The most common side effects and complications of liposculpture surgery are:
Most people feel some pain at the start of the operation, while the local anaesthetic is being administered. The pain may range from mild to intense but fortunately is of short duration. Pain is further reduced by the sedation and analgesia which has been given by the Doctor. There may be considerable discomfort for several days following the procedure. This is generally reduced by wearing the supplied compression garments, which give firm but comfortable support to the treated areas.
Bruising and swelling
Some of the dilute anaesthetic fluid is always left under the skin following the procedure. This causes some swelling, and will also tend to leak out of the small skin incisions which were made during the procedure. Swelling rapidly diminishes following the procedure, but may be present for some weeks. It is also common for some bruising to become apparent in the days following the procedure. This will disappear within two weeks and is not serious.
