What is Liposculpture?
Another popular procedure related to fat manipulation is Liposculpture. This option goes after little pockets of fat around the body. Next, Dr. Brent moves it around to create the desired shape. This results in the patient having a look of more muscle tone and definition. Are you looking for an option to give you a six-pack? Liposculpture would be the perfect procedure for you?

Similarities and differences
There are some similarities and differences between these two procedures. First, they both result in the manipulation of fat. And neither of them are primary weight loss methods. Another similarity is they will not restructure the skin itself. For example, these procedures do not remove imperfections such as stretch marks. What about their differences? Liposuction delivers a very different result because it removes fat. Hence, giving your body a new, slimmer shape. Liposculpture manipulates the fat to achieve a certain contour. This might result in a more toned appearance of your stomach. To get more information on these procedures, please contact Dr. Brent today.
