The various types of liposuction
Liposuction can be performed in a number of ways. The following are the primary types of liposuction procedures:
- Tumescent liposuction
One of the most common types, this process involves the injection of a medicated solution, after which the fat is removed. The solution is a mixture of a local anesthetic, adrenaline, and bicarbonate. This numbs the area, reduces the loss of blood, and makes it easier to remove the fat.
- Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL)
Ultrasonic vibrations liquefy the fat cells below the surface of the skin. This is more commonly used when dense, fibrous areas such as the upper back are being worked on.
- Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL)
Laser energy liquefies the fat cells then vacuums them out or drains them through small tubes. This process is most suitable for confined areas such as the chin, jowls, and face. The process also stimulates collagen production, preventing sagging and maintaining skin structure.
Liposuction can significantly improve your appearance and self-confidence.
