What makes Liposculpture different from Liposuction?

Dr Dass describes Liposculpture
Most people are familiar with the term "liposuction," a surgical procedure in which a plastic surgeon removes unwanted deposits of body fat. Liposculpture is exactly the same as liposuction, but some people associate liposculpture with more of a high-definition technique of liposuction. Dr. Dass always uses liposculpture techniques during liposuction to carefully sculpt the body and create highly defined results.

Liposculpture is best suited for people that are already very fit, but want improved definition and contours. Fat is selectively removed from certain areas while maintaining some fat in other areas. This artistic technique creates contours and shadows that give the illusion of a much defined body. Liposculpture can be used to enhance the contours on nearly any part of the body, but is typically used on the abdomen, back, thighs, and arms. Dr. Dass will use his artistic skills to produce beautiful results.

The first step in liposuction, involves infusing tumescent solution into the area of treatment. Tumescent solution is a combination of saline, epinephrine (to reduce bleeding and bruising), and lidocaine (a local anesthetic for pain control). Then, he will gently suction out the ideal amount of fatty tissue, based on the previously mapped-out plan. He will continually assess body contour in target areas, during the procedure, for optimal results.

Recovery from liposuction is generally very quick. You should, however, expect some soreness following the procedure. Dr. Dass will talk with you about the best way to manage that discomfort for a few days while you heal. You will wear compression garments for several weeks to reduce swelling and help your skin contract to your body’s new shape.

As your ideal sculpted body begins to come into full view, you’ll understand the importance of trusting the right professional for your liposuction or liposculpture in Los Angeles – Dr. Dennis Dass.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
