Types of liposuction 

  • Traditional Liposuction - performed under general anesthesia The surgeon makes an incision and inserts a cannula, moving it back and forth to break up fat cells which are removed with suction.  

  • Tumescent /Super wet Liposuction -  safest and most effective form of liposuction surgery. Large amounts of saline fluid are injected through small incisions, into the fatty area to be treated. The saline solution helps separate the fat from muscle. A cannula is then passed back and forth through the areas of excess fat and fat removed by vacuum pump.

  • Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) - also known as ultrasonic liposuction, uses ultrasonic energy to liquefy excess fat prior to surgical suctioning. An added advantage is that it tightens the skin during the process.

  • Power assisted liposuction (PAL) - in this a powered cannula is utilized which produces tiny, rapid vibrations, to loosen and break up fat cells,  the procedure allows more fat to be removed and  can be performed more quickly, causes less discomfort as well as less post-operative bruising. 

  • Laser Assisted Lipolysis (LAL) - also known as laser-guided lipo, a small tube is inserted through the incision to deliver laser energy and heat into the fat that is under the skin which is then suctioned out.
