Liposculpture Can Be Used to Improved the Shape and Contour on Many Parts of Your Body

As the name implies liposculpture is a form of liposuction. The key distinction between these two cosmetic surgeries relates to the amount of fat being removed from a particular body part. Liposuction generally removes a more significant volume of fat. After you’ve healed the natural contours of your muscles and your skin will determine the new shape of the body part.

In Dr. Randall B. Weil’s liposculpture procedure he uses a special tube called a cannula to carefully remove fat from one or more locations to strategically alter the shape of that body part. In a certain light, this makes liposculpture more like an art form than a surgical procedure.

Most liposculpture procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis. The size of the area being adjusted the volume of fat being removed, will determine the level of sedation required. A small area like the cheeks, might only call for an injection of local anesthetic. For a larger area, such as the abdomen it might be better for you to be fully sedated.

In either case, it’s best to arrange to have a friend or family member drive you home and help you out while you get back on your feet. Dr. Randall B. Weil will explain any other post-operative care requirements, such as the cleaning and care of a potential drainage tube, after your procedure.

If you have an area of your body that needs fat reduction of an improvement in tone, you should call Dr. Randall B. Weil’s office in San Francisco, California to set up a consultation session.
