Just a liposuction, a liposculpture procedure improves body contour by extracting fat cells that sit between skin and muscles. People often think liposuction and liposculpture are the same, and in essence, they are. The main thing that differences them is that while in the first all fat cells are removed, in the later some fat cell are left behind in strategic places to give definition and mimic toned muscles.
Although liposculpture is an invasive procedure, it leaves little to no scarring, as the incisions are small.
The best candidate for this procedure are women and men who are close to their ideal weight, and just need the last push to achieve their goals. They should have a BMI of no more than 30%.
It is extremely important to understand that a liposculpture is not a weight loss solution. You should see it as a final step to sculpt your body. The main goal of this procedure is to address fat pockets that resist to diet and exercise.
