According to recent data compiled by Real Self, women in New York are four times more likely to look up information about liposculpture than theirLos Angeles counterparts. Why are so many womeninterested in making this kind of change? Most believe it's for the real results that they are able to achieve through the procedure.
Liposculpture is a type of fat injection which can be used to augment a range of deficient areas of the body such as the lips or cheeks. It can also be used to fill in deep gravity lines such as the nasolabialfolds.
Some of the benefits this technique is known to have include:
- A soft feel for both a tangible difference in appearance and touch
- Naturally deriving the fat from your own body and administered into another area.
- Providing a permanent result, unlike other surgical and non-surgical procedures that may need a follow-up, such as injections.
- The fat that is used often goes on to survive as living tissue in the body, meaning it grows and changes as you do.
Unlike temporary injections such as Botox or Restylane, liposculpture is a permanent fix for many issues.
To complete the procedure, an incision is made in the belly button and fat is suctioned from the abdomen. The amount taken depends on the area of injection and patient desires. The fat is then washed and injected into the desired area.
After the procedure, we recommendlight activity and elevation of the affected area. An elastic bandage will be placed around the abdomen, as well as stitches in the belly button. These will be removed after about a week.
