Liposculpture in Charleston, SC

Liposculpture is a safe, effective way to improve body contours by removing excess fat. Liposculpture is a quickly evolving procedure and should only be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon. For those residents of Mt. Pleasant, Charleston, Summerville, and the surrounding South Carolina communities interested in liposculpture, Heidi Williams, M.D., is a board-certified, ASPS Plastic Surgeon, who specializes in liposculpture and all forms of liposuction.

What is Liposculpture?

Liposculpture refers to the sculpting of the body using fat removal. As a body contouring procedure, liposculpture results in an enhanced shape of the body or a slimmer appearance to a specified area of the body. The VASER®lipo device is capable of producing the most desirable tightly defined patient outcomes.

How Does Liposculpture Work?

Liposculpture is a procedure done by a board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Williams. During the procedure, a very small incision is made, tumescent fluid is strategically placed, then the VASER® ultrasonic liposuction device is used to break fat away from connective tissue. Using a gentle suctioning, a tubule removes the excess fat from the area. The incision is then closed, and the healing process begins. Full results are typically visible within a few weeks.

What Areas Can Be Treated by Liposculpture?

Liposculpture was designed to enhance the appearance of common problem areas on the body. The problem areas that respond best to liposculpture procedures include:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs (Inner or Outer)
  • Lower Back
  • Upper Arms
  • Buttocks and Flanks
  • Ankles
  • Knees
  • Face
  • Chin
  • Neck

What are the Benefits of Liposculpture?

The results of liposculpture are visible immediately and completely within just a matter of weeks. Additionally, the results of liposculpture last as long as the individual remains at the same weight at the time of the procedure. The results include a smaller circumference of the treated area, a more youthful/tightened appearance of the skin, and an overall slimmer silhouette.

Who is a Candidate for Liposculpture?

Liposculpture affords wonderful results to many patients that can last for decades. However, liposculpture is a minimally invasive procedure and is not an alternative to dramatic weight loss or a solution for an unhealthy lifestyle. Individuals with a small to moderate amount of excess fat in one or a few problem areas can benefit from the procedure.
