What is liposculpture?

Written by

Liposculpture refers to the modern method of liposuction which is performed under a type of local anaesthetic called tumescent anaesthetic. The main advantages over traditional liposuction which is performed under general anaesthetic are: increased safety, use of smaller cannulas which…

results in less trauma and bruising which means a faster recovery (back to work in 3 days), less need for garments (wear for 3 days only) but most importantly because you are awake during the procedure you can be moved often which allows sculpturing of the body in a 3D perspective for maximal results.  We even stand you up toward the end of the procedure to see the effect of gravity and look at the body from every angle to ensure optimal results.
