Different Liposuction Techniques

by admin

Liposuction surgery involves unwanted fat deposits being broken up and removed from the body using a hollow metal suction tube, called a cannula. There are a number of different lipo techniques available:

Dry Liposuction

The surgeon makes small entry points in the desired areas, and uses the cannula to break up fatty deposits before sucking them away with a syringe or pump.

Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL)

This technique uses a power supply to aid the movement of the cannula, which means less physical work is needed to loosen the fat cells.

Ultrasonic assisted liposuction (UAL)

A probe is used to deliver ultrasonic waves direct to the fat, which liquefies, allowing it to be easily removed. This is less damaging to the surrounding tissue and causes less bleeding.

Laser Liposuction

This uses laser technology to liquefy fatty deposits before removal. As it is less invasive than other techniques, laser liposuction also produces the least risk of surrounding tissue damage.

Tumescent Liposuction

A special diluted saline solution and anaesthetic liquid is injected into the body area to be treated, causing the fat to become firm (tumesced). This minimises trauma so a general anaesthetic is not needed.

Wet Liposuction

Fluid measuring less than the amount of fat to be removed is injected into the area to be treated. A general anaesthetic is required.

Super-Wet Liposuction

This treatment is similar to wet liposuction but not as much fluid is used. The amount of fluid injected is equal to the amount of fat to be removed.
