What Is Liposuction?

What is liposuction? Well! Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, is a fat remodeling cosmetic surgery. If every means for weight loss is too difficult to achieve for some, or to see the magnificent results as instant as possible, liposuction is an option for you.



Liposuction, like most of elective or cosmetic surgeries, requires figure counseling, as well as the decision made must be shared by both the operating doctor and the client, so that the risks will be mitigated and overall successful.

Usual desired areas for liposuction are major storage of fat in the body, particularly the abdomen (or love handles), thighs (mostly the outer thigh), buttocks, arms, neck, chin, and sometimes the breast (for men having gynecomastia) and other sites with excess of fat storage. Other indications aside from sculpting the body may include: bariatric treatment (preventing further development of obesity), fat filling (transfer of a portion of fat to another body part lacking shape)

Since there are different areas of the body that can be involved with liposuction, there are also different types and techniques of approach with this cosmetic surgery. Liposuction can be manual, power-assisted (using cannula with mechanized movement), or suction-operated. Innovations with this type of surgery now introduces other techniques and approaches that can be planned and discussed by both the surgeon and the client:

Ultrasound Assisted Lipoplasty:   

This approach uses introduction of ultrasound energy using a special tube, the energy then liquefies the fat and easily suctioned out.

Regional Or Tumescent Technique:  

This approach uses a large quantity of solution that acts as a regional anesthesia, and also a tumescent agent, preventing sensation of pain, as well as shrinking the capillaries to prevent loss of blood. Incision then follows, and then the fat is suctioned out.

Super Wet Or Water Assisted Tumescent Technique:  

Similar to tumescent approach, this time the tumescent solution is of lower volume ratio compared to water introduced continuously; as the fat is liquefied, the fat is suctioned continuously.

Twin Cannula Technique:  

This utilizes a specialized tube-in-a-tube cannula pair, wherein the inner tube moves rhythmically within another tube that simulates surgeon’s stroking, thus eases the removal of fat, as well as decreasing impact to neighboring tissues.

Autologous Fat Transfer:  

Not a particular technique to perform a liposuction, but is another approach to the procedure wherein the fat excess from a body part, is used for remodeling of other areas not emphasized by fat, such as removal of wrinkles or remodeling of buttocks.

With these new techniques and options to discuss with your surgeon, you can never go wrong, and you can easily identify your needs and may take your own preference. Science has provided everyone chances to sculpt their body, and happily experience those significant results.

  1. I must admit I’m not a fan in cosmetic surgery, but… those women on the photo look like a different person after the operation, a skinnier person, yes, but also prettier and much younger!

    I’m sure they were very happy with the results, and were told beforehand of the possible risks every surgery comes with…
