Springtime is Primetime for Liposuction.

Ready for Bikini Season

Springtime is Primetime for Liposuction.  Not a weight loss method or cellulite cure; healthy adults with fat deposits that do not respond to diet or exercise, may find liposuction an effective way to sculpt the body.

How do you ensure the expected results from your procedure? 

Immediately following your Liposuction procedure apply Sculptures Surgical Grade Liposuction Foam to improve compression distribution.  Our foam can be cut to your desired shape and size, and then easily inserted between sterile dressing and compression garment.  Our super soft foam is lightweight, breathable and ultra-absorbent. Packaged with UV-protected bags for longer shelf life.SC-320insert (2)

The benefits are:

  • Less waviness in the skin surface – Free fat cells are thought to be redistributed evenly by the pressure of the foam plus the pressure garment. The result is a smoother skin surface with less waviness.
  • A more comfortable recovery – Sculptures Liposuction Foam is also comfortable under the compression garment and there is less immediate postoperative tenderness.
  • The combination reduces swelling and bruising dramatically. A bruise occurs when red blood cells leak out of blood vessels and move toward the skin surface. The application of foam directly onto skin beneath a compression garment, tightly compresses the skin’s collagen fibers and aids in healing of the vacated area by minimizing the movement of red blood cells from the liposuction wound toward the surface of the skin.SC-810

Venezuela is known for its oil and its beautiful women.  Fueled by Venezuela beauty queens being crowned Miss Universe three times in the late 1970’s and 80’s, the country is obsessed with women’s beauty and inflated proportions.  A culture of increasingly enhanced physiques, cosmetic surgery is common practice through out Venezuela.  Breast augmentation, Butt Enhancements, and Liposuction have all contributed to the Venezuelan National “Normal”.  Yet store fronts and window displays have always used a more traditional mannequin silhouette to display clothing. That was until Eliezer Álvarez’s made voluptuous models the standard in his mannequin factory in Valencia, Venezuela.  Now his best seller,the augmented forms can be found in store presentations through out the country echoing the Venezuelan physique.

Enhancing your female form?  Cosmetic surgery can allow you to sculpt a body that reflects your desires.  The breasts, abdominals, thighs, hips, buttocks, flanks and upper back can all be enhanced by today’s modern procedures.  Designed to address the specific aesthetic or reconstructive procedure, each Contemporary Design Compression Garment is an integral element in the surgical process. To ensure the results of your procedure, each garment is designed to hold skin firmly in place, aiding in proper skin retraction and intended body contouring.  Wearing a compression garment designed for your particular procedure will minimize bruising and swelling, increase blood circulation and aid in flushing fluids and toxins at the incision site.

Post surgery, the use of a supportive compression garment is an integral element in the healing process.

 

How do you reduce bruising after liposuction?

SC-810Used in conjunction with your compression garment, Sculptures Liposuction Foam are positioned over the liposuction treated areas to evenly distribute the pressure and minimize folds or creases. It is ideal for arms, chins, abdomen, thighs or any area where uniform healing is necessary.

The benefits are:

  • Less waviness in the skin surface – Free fat cells are thought to be redistributed evenly by the pressure of the foam plus the pressure garment. The result is a smoother skin surface with less waviness.
  • A more comfortable recovery – Sculptures Liposuction Foam is also comfortable under the compression garment and there is less immediate postoperative tenderness.
  • Less blood loss and ecchymoses – The use of the Sculptures liposuction foam, in conjunction with the garment, results in less postoperative bleeding and bruising. In turn, there is a decrease in the amount of postoperative fall in hematocrit. With less of a drop in hematocrit and hemoglobin, there is also less postoperative anemia. The mechanism involved in the reduction in blood loss is thought to be a combination of overcoming capillary pressure and stabilization of the skin and subsurface blood vessels.

The combination reduces swelling and bruising dramatically.  A bruise occurs when red blood cells leak out of blood vessels and move toward the skin surface. The application of foam directly onto skin beneath a compression garment, tightly compresses the skin’s collagen fibers and prevents bruising by minimizing the movement of red blood cells from the liposuction wound toward the surface of the skin.
