    Despite diet and exercise sometimes those hips are near impossible to get rid of!

    Liposculpture is a highly effective procedure for a young woman like yourself who is fit and but still has pockets of fat that simply will not budge. The art in liposculpture, unlike simple liposuction, is not just to remove the pockets of fat but to sculpt a new figure for the patient.

    To achieve a new figure requires the surgeon to have an appreciation of the artistic modeling of the fat so that after skin retraction, visually appealing contours are revealed.

    For deeper and more extensive lines I prefer to resurface the upper lip with either dermabrasion or the carbon dioxide laser treatment. The smooth resurfaced skin takes seven to ten days to heal and leaves new, pink skin which for six to eight weeks requires makeup to conceal and sunscreen for protection.

    The new, smooth upper lip can be a little shiny and lighter in colour than the rest of your face. This is why resurfacing the whole face is sometimes better so that there is a uniform lighter colour all over rather than have a demarcation line around your mouth and a sun-tanned, freckled complexion on the rest of your face.
