Lipocontouring vs. Liposuction: What’s the Difference?

If you’re looking for ways to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that diet and exercise can’t seem to shrink, then you’ve probably run across plenty of online references to both lipocontouring and liposuction. Is there any real difference between the two terms? Or are they different names for the same procedure?

As it turns out, there is a difference! Here’s how it breaks down:

Liposuction Removes Stubborn Pockets of Fat

First and foremost, we should note that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure, though it can help patients achieve a slimmer, more toned figure by removing fat deposits that fail to respond to traditional means of weight loss.

Incisions are made through a small, medical-grade suction device designed to remove fat from strategically targeted areas of the body. The most commonly chosen regions for liposuction include the abdomen, flanks or “love handles”, thighs, arms, buttocks, and even the neck.

Results typically lead to a more contoured and appealing figure.

Lipocontouring Offers More Defined Results…

Lipocontouring, on the other hand, simply offers more pronounced results. For example, whereas ordinary liposuction can slim down a patient’s abdomen, lipocontouring could be used to sculpt a six-pack.
