Which Techniques to be Used?

There are only a few liposuction techniques to be used. However, the common thing in all these is use of a tube named cannula, connected with the vacuum to pull out fat from the body.


Tumescent Liposuction

is the most common type of liposuction. Surgeon injects a sterile solution including salt water mixture that aids fat removal and lidocaine to relieve the pain, as well as a drug which causes blood vessels to tighten the area which is about to be get treated. This mixture helps affected area to get stiff and swell. Then the surgeon makes an incision with a tube called cannula, which is connected to a vacuum that sucks fluids from the body.

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (UAL)

In this method, surgeon inserts a metal rod which emits ultrasonic energy under the skin. This procedure breaks down the fat for easy removal.

Laser Assisted Liposuction (LAL)

It uses high intensity laser to break down fat for removal. Laser emulsifies fat deposits, then the fat removed by cannula.

Vaser Liposuction

Vaser liposuction utilizes ultrasound energy for melting fat before getting removed through one thin tube known as a cannula. Vaser liposuction is the best Liposuction technique which makes your fat easy-to-remove and it’s especially useful for areas having denser fat or fat in larger volumes. It’s a less-aggressive procedure that lead to quicker recovery. This method is NOT meant to significantly decrease weight but to treat fat which is resistant to exercise and diet.
