Can you describe the main techniques used today


There seems to be so many different techniques available for liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, fluid injection tumescent liposuction, laser liposuction, etc. Can you describe the main techniques used today and what their advantages and disadvantages are?


There are indeed many techniques of liposuction. The tradition liposuction is tried and true and has been used for almost 40 years. The other techniques that are most common today either involve ultrasound energy or laser energy to try to rupture the fat cells and make it easier to suction them. While these techniques to do work, they do have some disadvantages such as causing increased fluid collections, possible burns on the skin, and for this reason in our practice we still use the traditional tried and true liposuction that gives excellent results and avoids any possible complications associated with the other techniques.
