Types of Liposuction Techniques

There are several types of liposuction that are used to extract the exact fats. Each technique being distinct is chosen based on the preferences and goals of the candidates. These techniques include

1.      Tumescent Liposuction

The procedure is most commonly used to extract unwanted fats.

Through this mixture, the particular area gets swollen and thicken.

The surgeon then makes some small incisions into the skin of the target area, and a tube called cannula is inserted. The cannula is attached to a vacuum that sucks unwanted fluid and fats from a particular area. This procedure is carried out under general anesthesia and is performed in an Outpatient Setting.

2.      Laser-Assisted Liposuction

In this technique, a laser beam of high intensity is used to break down fats to get them removed. During the laser-assisted liposuction, small incisions are made on the skin, and laser fibers are inserted, and fats are emulsified. Then these fats are withdrawn through a cannula. The additional advantage of the procedure is that, it triggers the protein collagen production, and hence, skin gets rejuvenated.

4.      Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction

These rods, however, emit sound waves to emulsify the fats, destroying the cell walls so that the fat liquefies. It can then, easily be removed using the cannula. It is most commonly used to remove the stubborn fats from the specific parts of the body like breasts.
