If you’re considering a lipo or liposculpture, there’s a lot to know about the procedure. How effective will it be? Is it permanent? Is it for me? We’ve put together 5 lesser known details about lipo that you might be glad you know.

1. Lipo is not a weight loss treatment

From the outside, it can seem that liposculpture is a catch-all solution for weight loss, but it’s important to remember that is not a weight loss treatment. It is a body sculpting treatment. What it does do is help to smooth out the lumps and bumps and contour the body.

2. Liposculpture is permanent (for the most part)

Is liposuction permanent? For the most part, yes, it is. It can depend a little on where on the body you are having liposculpture. For example, on the upper arms, neck/chin, back/hips, thighs the effects are permanent. For the abdomen, fat removed will not come back, however there is the risk that the remaining fat can expand with generalised weight gain.

3. You won’t need to take long off work

Some people envision that having liposculpture will mean weeks and weeks off work. But that’s not the case. Depending on the area of treatment, Sculpture Clinic recommends 2-5 days off work. 2-3 days for areas like the chin or arms and 3-5 for larger core areas like the abdomen. After this, you may need to avoid heavy lifting and heavy exercise for 3 weeks. Recovering can be even better if treatment is done via Laser Liposuction.

4. There’s hardly any scarring

Liposculpture is done via small entry holes 2-3mm wide. That’s not big enough to require any stitches at all. They heal really quickly and in most cases, are barely visible after a few months. Lipo is actually one of the most effective ways to get rid of man boobs.

5. Lipo is actually one of the most effective ways to get rid of man boobs

Moving the fatty tissue that can accumulate around men’s chests can be a tall order when exercise and eating well doesn’t seem to make much of a difference. Liposculpture is a fantastic solution for so-called ‘man boobs’ and the fat won’t come back.
