What is facial minisculpture? Facial minisculpture is a cosmetic surgery that can be best described as a very refined type of liposuction. For facial minisculpture, the doctor would used smaller, specialized instruments than what are used for regular liposuction. The size of the instruments is only about one or two millimeters, and they are shaped to specifically designed to address areas of the body requiring extreme caution and precision. This is a cosmetic surgery that is increasing in popularity among celebrities.
Facial minisculpture is designed for the specific areas of the face that are difficult, if not impossible, to address with normal liposuction. Facial areas such as jowls, cheeks, and jaw-line can be sculpted with the tiny tools that are specialized for this type of procedure. While most common for the face, other areas for Minisculpture include arms, axilla and bra areas, back, chin, knees, calves, and even ankles. Minisculpture is performed while the patient is under anesthesia, but it is a short and quick procedure that is minimally invasive.
This is such an easy cosmetic surgery, that the patient even has the ability to drive him or herself home after the procedure. In general, if the procedure is done correctly, there should not be any side effects that are associated with normal anesthesia. In addition to this, the recovery period is extremely easy for the patient. There may be some minor bruising and swelling, but minor is the key word. Bruising and swelling are virtually undetectable and the discomfort from both is minimal. While a short time off is still recommended from recovery, you can return to work after 48 hours. For about any other normal around the home activity, 24 hours should be more than enough time for recovery.
Minisculpture is so easy on the patient, in fact, that it can even be done in conjunction with other cosmetic surgeries. There are many celebrity patients who have had minisculptures in association with other procedures such as lip augmentation, eyelid enhancement, laser treatment and other minimally invasive techniques. The beauty of minisculpture is how gentle it is, and as a result, how little that particular cosmetic surgery impacts your day to day life, and yet the impact it can have on appearance can not be discounted.
