Liposculpture is a surgical procedure that is used to give you more muscle tone and shapeliness. It treats little pockets of fat, unlike liposuction which covers larger areas.
Instead of just removing fat, liposculpture also moves it around it for a desired shape. It can be particularly useful in areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise. Liposculpture works best if you have good skin elasticity, which is generally true for those who are younger, have darker skin tones, don’t smoke, and don’t have much sun damage. The ideal candidate is close to their ideal weight and has a BMI under 30. It may not work well if you have weakened muscles or loose skin from age or pregnancy.
- Breast augmentation is the enlargement of the breasts through the insertion of saline or silicone implants.
- Implants are inserted behind the breast tissue or the chest muscle.
- Candidates include people who want larger breasts, want to add symmetry to their body shape and proportions, or who have lost breast volume due to weight loss or pregnancy.
- Like all surgeries, breast augmentation carries risks. These include scarring, infection, implant rupture, wrinkling of the skin around the implant site, breast pain, and more.
- The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia.
- Breast implants aren’t guaranteed to last forever, so choosing this procedure puts you at risk for follow-up surgical procedures to correct issues with your implants.
