Choosing the Right Liposuction Procedure
If you have a problem with excess fat in certain areas of your body and have been considering cosmetic surgery or liposuction, there are now several newer procedures which offer safer, less painful and more effective results. The idea of liposuction is to break down fat cells in the body so that they can be either absorbed or removed. One of the major problems, however, is that it can cause internal bleeding and damage to nerve endings by attacking the healthy cells surrounding the fat cells at the same time. Newer, more advanced, procedures have now been developed which achieve all the same great results as liposuction, and even some added extras, but without any of the painful or harmful consequences or side effects.
Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound to break down the fat cells, while leaving the other cells and tissues mostly undamaged. Known for its uses for scanning pregnant women, ultrasound is now being used for many different procedures, including fat reduction. As opposed to traditional liposuction, there is minimal pain, bruising and scarring and clients recover from the procedure much more quickly.
Another effective procedure that has emerged in recent years is Smart Lipo, which has similar benefits to Vaser liposuction in that it causes little damage to the rest of your body, while still removing the excess fat in your body. Smart Lipo has the added benefit of skin tightening, but you can discuss any queries you have regarding the different procedures with one of our expert surgeons at a free consultation.
