Liposuction Versus Liposculpture: What's the Difference?

If you have some areas of your body that aren’t as lean as you’d like them to be, it would be natural to consider liposuction as a solution. Liposuction has been used for cosmetic fat removal since 1974. It is safe and effective. Unfortunately, liposuction alone can leave the body looking undefined and unnaturally flat in shape. Over the years, cosmetic surgeons have been working to improve the aesthetic results.

The Art of Liposculpture

As surgeons, we knew the answer to improving the results of liposuction was improved
technology. Today, the technology has advanced to the place where we can artistically sculpt and contour the body rather than focusing solely on fat removal. In our Skinsational office, we are educating our patients on the differences between the liposculpture we offer and the older, more well-known term of liposuction.

Liposculpture is a relatively new, but highly developed procedure that is often mistaken for liposuction - but they’re not the same. The truth is, liposculpture is not a replacement for liposuction, but a way to perfect the results of the fat removal done through liposuction. Surgeons use a keen sense for body contour aesthetic to sculpt the targeted areas and get the results envisions by the patient. While liposuction focuses only on fat removal, liposculpture is focused on reshaping the body into the patient's desired appearance. Between liposuction and liposculpture there's not a choice to be made - they go hand in hand.

Words are limited when trying to explain the difference between liposuction and liposculpture. Visual evidence provides the best means of demonstrated the marked difference that can be achieved when an artistic surgeon uses liposculpture to achieve the definition that is lacking in liposuction alone. You can see real life examples on our website.

Technically Advanced Sculpting Tools


There are a number of proven methods to remove fat cells from the body. New technology and advancements making it easier, faster, and less intrusive to the body. State of the art ultrasound liposculpture is one such recent innovation. Ultrasound waves are used to liquefy fat cells so they can be removed with ease without disturbing or injuring surrounding tissues.

For the first time, you can choose to be awake during the procedure and return to normal activities after only one to two days. Consequently, you receive refined results with minimal recovery downtime.
