Home Surgeries Liposculpture and power assisted lipo

Liposculpture is the advanced version of liposuction. Both terms are often used as synonyms, but in principle liposculpture is a more precise and effective way to remove fat and to improve the figure.

Liposculpture techniques

There are various techniques for doing liposuction or liposculpture.

The term liposuction used to refer to sucking out the fat. As the term liposuction is quite blunt, over the last years the term liposculpture has been used. Both terms refer to the same treatment and are interchanged.

Liposuction literally means sucking out the fat, where liposculpture is the modern form. Liposculpture will help you to improve the contours of your body, by removing excess fat from places it won’t just go away with the help of dieting or physical exercise.

Nowadays the Power Assisted Lipo is the most efficient method.

Apart from Power Assisted Lipo there is quite a range of other techniques, often less efficient and less safe. A list of other techniques of fat removal: the classical liposuction, liposculpture, vaser liposculpture, smartlipo, lipolysis, ultrashape, coolsculpting, laser liposuction, cryolipolysis.

Power Assisted Lipo (PAL)

Plastic surgeons at Clinic BeauCare advice to have the Power Asssisted Lipo. This technique is the modern variant of the liposuction. By means of a vibrating cannula the excessive fat will be removed. The fat will be gently aspired, while respecting other tissues, blood vessels and nerfs.

The selective aspiration with the vibrating cannula makes the postoperative shorter and less painful for the patient. The Power Assisted Lipo results in considerably reducing of the bleeding, the risks of oedemas and bruises.

The movement of the cannula also stimulates the collagen synthesis, which will tighten the skin in post operatory.

In order to prepare aspiration the fat will be infiltrated, which will break up the fatty cells. After this step, the fat can be gently aspirated.

Non-advisable techniques

The techniques described below are not performed by our surgeons, since we are convinced that the Power Assisted Lipo is the most efficient, safest and sophisticated technique to improve the contours of your body.

  • Vaser liposuction: is a process by which fatty deposits are removed by means of sounds waves. This technology can only be applied on a limited part of the body,
  • Smartlipo: Laser lipo uses the heat of the laser to melt the subcutanteous fat. Also smartlipo can only be treated on a limited part of the body,
  • Coolsculpting: is a non-invasive treatment to reduce fat cells by freezing,
  • Ultrashape: the fat will be removed by ultrasound waves, which involves risk of burning.


Every surgeon has his own technique which he uses to treat patients in order to get the best results. There exists off course some common principles : Liposculpture involves the injection of an anesthetic and blood staunching solution. This injection causes a swelling of the fat cells that allows dissolution of those fat cells. This way the surgeon can easily remove the fat cells with a fine needle of both deep and superficial fat.

The vibroliposculpture and ultrasound liposculpture practiced at Clinic BeauCare are among the most advanced techniques. Vibroliposculpture can be practiced both under local or general anesthesia and will take 1,5 hour to three hours, depending on the areas to be treated.


Both before and after the liposculpture or vibroliposculpture treatment it is advised to have lymph drainage carried out. Lymph drainage is a kind of massage which helps to stimulate the blood circulation and will lead to nicer scars following liposculpture.

RESULTs of a vibro-liposculpture or Power Assisted Lipo

The result of liposculpture can be considered to be definitive as from 6 months after the treatment. The best results will be obtained if there was a good indication, followed by a correct treatment.

Liposculpture can remove stubborn fat deposits, in combination with a skin retraction and an improvement of the figure. You shouldn’t expect a perfect body, but an improvement of your figure! Even after a perfect liposculpture treatment some irregularities or cellulitis may persist.

But people who have realistic expectations, and in accordance with the advice of the doctor, will have very impressive results.


Although very nice results are obtained by a liposculpture treatment, imperfections may occur. Local imperfections can be reviewed by a revision liposculpture, which is performed under local anaesthesia.
