The aim of any Liposculpture is to create shapeliness and slenderness. The sculpture should produce flowing lines that emphasise the beauty of the silhouette.
In my opinion, Liposculpture/liposuction surgery is the most artistic cosmetic surgical procedure. The surgeon is the sculptor, the patient’s body is his marble and the newly Liposculptured figure his finished work.
To create a beautiful body sculpting work the doctor must be both artist and surgeon, with the right blend of surgical skill, clinical judgement and artistic ability, combined with the passion to achieve great results.
However, Liposculpture surgery is much more difficult than sculpting in marble because the surgeon is working on a living person.
The human body has skin that must contract and not loosen and hang: fat, which changes with posture and bone structure; and stature, which predetermines the proportions of the figure.
When performing a Liposculpture procedure the surgeon must work with all these components to produce his result, all the while keeping the safety and wellbeing of his patient uppermost in his mind.
The Liposculpture surgeon must have an innate appreciation of the human figure and the principles of balance, proportion and harmony.
These combine to create an attractive new figure.
The Liposculpture surgeon’s experience and training allow him to create the new form he has designed.
They also give him the ability to produce smooth curves, even results and maximise fat removal and skin contraction with the use of specialised techniques such as superficial undermining. Employing technologies and using microcannulas can further improve the result.
Dr Rastogi has been performing Liposculpture in Sydney for over 18 years.
“Liposculpture is an incredibly effective and exciting procedure in which beautiful new bodies are sculptured, when the surgeon has the essential combination of artistic ability and surgical skill,” says Dr Rastogi.
This comes from experience and training. It allows the surgeon to evaluate the skin, the fat and the underlying musculoskeletal structures prior to performing the body sculpting to determine the potential for his patient to achieve the desired result.
He evaluates the skin’s ability to contract, how much fat there is in an area and how much can be sculpted away. He also evaluates when it is safe to perform Liposculpture surgery and how much fat can be removed for an effective result.
I believe it is essential for the surgeon to be passionate about his work, his results and also his patients’ wellbeing. It is only natural that a patient contemplating a Liposculpture surgery in Sydney will be apprehensive about the procedure and outcome. Empathy, comfort and patience from the surgeon allows the patient to express themselves, so their desires can be understood and satisfied. It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and in this instance, the beholder is the patient. It is the patient above all who should appreciate and enjoy the result of the procedure.
There is a big difference between Liposculpture and Liposuction. Liposculpture is not concentrated on the bulk reduction of fat as liposuction procedure is, but rather uses fat removal to sculpt the figure and create more harmonious curves.
Using specialised microcannulas and advanced techniques, Liposculpture is a fine, precise and predictable sculpting procedure. Superficial undermining is the technique of removing fat from directly underneath the skin. This procedure achieves greater skin retraction and allows for very precise sculpting.
The Liposculpture procedure in Australia is very safe and Australia has an impressive record by world standards. However, the quality of results reflect very much the skill and vision of the surgeon, so patients are advised to chose their surgeon carefully, looking for not only training and experience but artistic vision as well.
