Types of Liposuction

There are a number of liposuction techniques and technologies available for modern day body contouring.
TAMPA, FL, August 01, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- There are a number of liposuction techniques and technologies available for modern day body contouring. Like all surgical procedures, liposuction has enjoyed advancements that have made it safer, more effective, and more comfortable for patients.
It is important to make sure you are working with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon when you begin to consider liposuction. While various types of liposuction are available through many physicians, only a board-certified plastic surgeon can help ensure the best type of liposuction for your body to produce the amazing looking results you deserve.
Liposuction Options
Traditional liposuction is performed by making incisions in the treatment area through which a small tube, called a cannula, is inserted. Suction through the cannula is used to remove deposits of fat, but in the traditional method this often produces bruising, discomfort, and uneven results.
With modern advancements in medical technology, there are now a number of more effective liposuction techniques utilized by today's plastic surgeons. The most popular options include:
- Tumescent liposuction - a technique that uses an injection of saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine is used to allow for treatment without general anesthesia
- Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) - a technique in which an electrical motor is used to power the cannula and break up stubborn deposits of fat
- Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction (UAL) - using tumescent fluid and ultrasound waves, this technique liquefies fat for easier removal
- Laser liposuction - sometimes known by the brand name SmartLipo , laser liposuction uses a laser to liquefy fat cells prior to removal
All of these methods have proven to reduce risks such as excessive bleeding, infection, bruising, and postoperative discomfort, but each offers its own specific benefits as well. Your board-certified plastic surgeon will be able to analyze your stubborn fat deposits and determine which of these techniques will best suit the needs of your body.
