Women often develop square waists and excess fat in the lower abdomen, back and hips. The causes for this may include childbirth, menopause or just genetics. Liposculpture to these areas can help patients obtain the much sought after “Hour-Glass” shape.
Liposculpture of the abdomen is usually combined with treatment of the hips and waist to help resize the whole lower torso. By flattening the tummy and contouring the waist, we can help get rid of that square look and create a more feminine and youthful silhouette. Jeans, Yoga Pants and dresses will sit seamlessly and will help compliment the natural curvature of the body. In addition to Liposculpture, Fat Transfer of the removed fat into the buttocks region, will help accentuate the “Hour-Glass” Figure, giving a much more aesthetically pleasing shape. A Waist to Buttocks Ratio of 0.7 is what is required to achieve the most desired shape.
Any size of abdomen can be treated with the appropriate form of Liposculpture. Using the VASER™ technology, small abdomens can be flattened for a ‘washboard stomach’ and abdominal muscle appearance can be enhanced. Careful use of Laser Technology and Powered Liposuction devices, such as the Microair™, can be utilized to remove ‘Baby Bumps” and “Muffin Tops”.
Liposculpture vs Liposuction
Liposculpture is a safer and more effective form of Liposuction that can be performed on an outpatient basis, without the need for general anaesthetic and with less down-time and post-operative discomfort.
Liposculpture is ideal for removing fat from areas of the body otherwise resistant to dietary modification and regular exercise. It is not intended as a means for generalised weight loss.
