The difference between these two terms depends upon who you ask for the definition. Most people define liposuction as the technique for removing a considerable amount of fat whereas liposculpture is a process for removing a lesser amount of fat in a way that it reflects the underlying muscles. Liposculpture is great for creating a toned and athletic appearance rather than the bulk of shapeless volume.

Liposuction or Liposculpture: When you are spoilt for choice, which one would you opt for? The reply is obvious; most people would love to be sculpted rather than sucked. The term liposculpture rose into prominence primarily to connote a more refined overall impression of sculpture than mere suction. In the early times, there were some cosmetic surgeons who used this term to denote a practice of lipo-etching or superficial liposuction where more fragile and delicate contouring is carried out on the upper surface of the fat, but it creates a higher risk of producing irregularities and undulations on the contour.

Is it a marketing gimmick? Every plastic surgeon does sculpting while performing liposuction irrespective of the method implemented, be it, AquaJet, Slimlipo, lipotherme, VASER, Coollipo, etc. Liposculpture is therefore, a marketing name coined by the enterprise that produces the VASER ultrasound-assisted liposuction instrument.

Since both these terms are used interchangeably, the most important thing is to pay a visit to a certified surgeon. So regardless of the name by which you call it, it is a process that reshapes the body by removing the local fat deposits permanently. This is a very popular process among both males and females.

Liposculpture to remove stubborn body fat: Fatty deposits on the inner thighs and tummy are sometimes resistant to work out and diet. Many obese people lose their interest in losing weight without seeing any significant change in the lower part of the body. The overall proportions of fat on the body appear unbalanced and in such cases, liposuction or liposculpture, whatever you call it may help you to trim down the excess fat from your body and help you reach a more attractive shape and body contour.

Besides offering you a proportionate body shape, you will also feel a psychological lift with this process. It will boost your level of confidence, and you shall be brimming with energy. In addition, patients who have undergone liposculpture rejoice the ability to maintain a daily workout schedule. Many patients express their happiness for not being worried by chafing in the tummy or thigh area, and they are also able to put on fashionable clothes after going through liposculpture.
