Liposculpture in Beverly Hills
Liposculpture is an advanced cosmetic surgery designed for extensive body contouring through the removal and reshaping of fat deposits. This surgery is similar to traditional liposuction but has a few key differences. Liposculpture removes small, localized fat deposits in a quest to sculpt body contours. Liposculpture is an extensive body contouring procedure that removes excess fat to enhance the appearance of muscle definition.
What Can Liposculpture Do?
Target Multiple Areas
If you have multiple areas where you would like to see more definition, liposculpture might be right for you. Liposculpture can be performed on a number of areas such as the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, waist, upper arms, back, cheeks, chin, and neck.
Create Slimmer Contours
Liposculpture can drastically improve your appearance and confidence by removing the stubborn excess fat deposits that you’ve been struggling to get rid of. After your liposculpture procedure, you can expect to see more slender, attractive contours.
Enhance Muscle Definition
Liposculpture is beneficial for patients whose muscle definition is camouflaged by excess fat. Dr. Chiu uses his artistic touch to strategically remove fat and reshape the target area. After the stubborn fat deposits are suctioned away, your body contours will be more flattering with greater tone and definition.
What Can I Expect During My Liposculpture Recovery?
As with all surgical procedures, there is a recovery process after liposculpture to ensure that you heal properly and can fully enjoy your new and improved body contours.
Immediately following your procedure, Dr. Chiu will place compression garments or elastic bandages over the treatment areas. This is to help control swelling and to compress the tissues to your new body contours. Excess blood and fluids will be absorbed by the body or escape through the incision sites.
Additionally, you will be given specific instructions concerning the care of treatment areas, topical or oral medications to take (for recovery, pain management, and prevention of infections), and volume and type of exercise recommended (to encourage circulation).
It is important that your surgical incisions are not exposed to excessive force, abrasion, or motion during your recovery.
Typically, most patients return to work within a few days of their procedure. This is a general timeline that will ultimately depend on the number of areas treated and whether any other procedures were combined with your liposculpture.
It is best to follow your doctor’s instructions closely after surgery.
2 to 3 Weeks
Swelling and bruising should continue to dissipate, and the results should become more apparent. You may resume strenuous activities at this point if cleared by Dr. Chiu.
4 to 6 Weeks
You should be completely healed at this point and able to resume daily activities and exercise.
