When stubborn fat deposits do not disappear with consistent diet and exercise, it is common for people to become discouraged and start looking for body contouring methods to help.
Micro liposculpture removes unwanted fat cells and sculpts the areas of the body that do not react to diet and exercise.
After massive weight loss, it can be hard to tone specific areas of the body. It is common for fatty deposits to remain in places like the neck, abdomen, love handles, hips, outer thighs, and arms. The micro liposculpture technique can strategically remove fat deposits to create a precise definition.
Micro liposculpture is popular because it is so versatile. It can be used to contour larger regions of the body (including the abdomen, hips, and thighs), but also the smaller and more delicate facial areas (like the under the chin and neck). This technique can slim contours or enhance definition.
Micro liposculpture is an alternative for those who wish to undergo body contouring but do not have time for an extensive recovery period. This technique can be performed quickly to produce long-lasting results with little to no downtime. As this technique uses smaller incisions and tools, there is less bleeding and trauma.
Dr. Sand will assess the area/s that you desire to see more definition and contour. She will review your medical history and tell you if micro liposculpture is right for you.
Most plastic surgeons inject a sterile solution that will numb the treated areas.
Dr. Sand will employ the tumescent technique, which involves local anesthesia without IV sedation, to be injected into the fat beneath the skin. During the micro liposculpture procedure, Dr. Sand will use a combination of tiny incisions and small tubes (cannulas) to break down fat cells from localized areas. The fat is then suctioned out through the incision.
Liposculpture is a surgical procedure that is used to enhance muscle tone and restore youthful contours. Unlike liposuction, which targets larger areas, micro liposculpture can treat the hard to reach areas with precision and accuracy.
Liposculpture does more than remove fat—it manipulates and moves the fat around to produce a more shapely figure.
Micro liposculpture procedures can target stubborn fat deposits in localized areas like the:
After your micro liposculpture treatment, you should be able to return to work and daily activities within two to three days. You may feel minor discomfort near the incision sites for a few hours or days after the surgery.
After your treatment, you will notice an improved contour and tighter appearance in the treated areas that will continue to improve as any swelling subsides. As the incision sites heal, your results will become more noticeable.
Treatments are relatively painless; however, it is normal to feel discomfort near the incision sites for a few hours after the treatment. Any pain or discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication.
The cost of your micro liposculpture treatment will depend on the areas being treated and the procedures combined with your treatment. Dr. Sand will provide you with a cost estimate during your consultation.
You may be the right candidate for micro sculpture treatment if you have localized fat deposits that will not go away from diet and exercise.
Yes, micro liposculpture is a safe technique. It produces little to no pain or scarring, and most patients experience little to no blood loss, rapid recovery rates, and excellent aesthetic results.
Most patients are satisfied with one micro liposculpture treatment. Repeated treatments may be performed, if needed or desired.
The length of your micro liposculpture treatment will depend on the areas that need to be treated. Generally, the procedure ranges from one to two hours.
Liposculpture is in the same cosmetic family as liposuction, but liposculpture has greater body contouring and sculpting properties as it can restore definition and shape to stubborn areas on the body or imitate natural muscle definition, such as six-pack abs.
Micro liposculpture is not intended for weight loss. Instead, it is used to tighten and contour areas with good skin elasticity. It is especially beneficial in accentuating abdominal muscles, highlighting the waist, and targeting hard-to-reach places like under the chin.
Fat grafting, or fat transfer, can take the fat removed with liposuction or micro liposculpture and inject it into areas of the face with volume loss. This treatment can also be used to improve contour deformities and rejuvenate the hands, buttocks, and breasts.
