Liposculpture is a popular cosmetic procedure that many people turn to when they want to get rid of stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. This procedure involves the removal of excess fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and arms. However, with any procedure, there are always safety concerns that should be considered.

Yes, When You Choose the Best Plastic Surgeon for Your Procedure

First and foremost, it is important to choose a qualified and experienced surgeon to perform the procedure. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio specializes in liposculpture and can perform the procedure safely and effectively. He always discusses your health and any medical conditions in a confidential consultation before any surgery.

Dr. Del Vecchio and his team at Back Bay Plastic Surgery in Boston generally encounter questions about the following factors with liposculpture.

Anesthesia and Sedation

A common safety concern with liposculpture is the use of anesthesia. While general anesthesia is typically not required for this procedure, local anesthesia and sedation are used to keep the patient comfortable during the procedure. However, there are risks associated with anesthesia, such as allergic reactions or adverse side effects. Dr. Del Vecchio will discuss the risks and benefits of anesthesia with you before the procedure.

Lipo 360

Lipo 360 is a cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to sculpt and contour the body by removing excess fat from multiple areas, including the abdomen, back, hips and thighs. The procedure uses a combination of liposuction techniques to target specific areas of the body and create a more defined silhouette. The term “360” refers to the fact that the entire midsection of the body is treated, resulting in a 360-degree transformation.

Abdominal Etching

Abdominal etching is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is designed to create a more defined-looking six-pack. This is accomplished by removing fat from certain areas of the stomach and strategically sculpting the remaining fat to create a muscle-like definition. The procedure is typically performed on men who are already in good shape and have a low body fat percentage but are looking to achieve a more chiseled appearance. While abdominal etching can be an effective way to enhance the appearance of the midsection, it is important to remember that it is still a surgical procedure and comes with its own set of risks and potential complications.

Post-Operative Care

Post-operative care is also important for the safety of our patients. Following the procedure, you may experience some swelling, bruising and discomfort. It is important to follow Dr. Del Vecchio’s instructions for post-operative care, which may include wearing compression garments, avoiding strenuous activity and taking prescribed medications.

In rare cases, complications may occur with liposculpture, such as infection, bleeding or nerve damage. However, Dr. Del Vecchio and his team explain these risks and how we work to minimize them for our patients.

Overall, liposculpture can be a safe and effective way to remove stubborn fat deposits and achieve a more contoured appearance. If liposculpture sounds like an option to help you get a more defined silhouette, contact Back Bay Plastic Surgery in Boston to schedule a liposculpture consultation.
