Liposuction is one of the aesthetic operations that is preferred among women as well as men. It is important to search the application for your needs before having the procedure. Always remember that liposuction fights stubborn fat but is not a weight loss solution. If you cannot burn your fat by dieting or going to the gym, liposuction is a solution to reforming your body shape.  By the new developments and techniques, there are more than one alternative to liposuction. The key is to find the best benefits for your need and working type of the operation. When you have been informed on the difference between each, you can choose the best type according to your needs.

Vaser Liposuction: Vaser is an acronym for ‘’Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance’’ which is one of the many liposuction techniques and a form of ultrasound-assisted liposuction. This method consists of using Ultrasound waves to destroy fat cells in-order to facilitate their extraction. We insert cannulas into the inner fat layer through small incisions. Instead of using the motion, Vaseremploys sensors that resonate at a high ultrasonic frequency. Our clinic has the best Vaser Liposuction surgeons, you can learn more about vaser Liposuction

Laser Assisted Liposuction LAL – SmartLipo

In Laser assisted liposuction, the fat is removed through laser. The method is similar to ultrasound waves but replaced with Laser. Again, this is used for stubborn fat that needs to be removed from your body. The main advantage of this method is to use lasers in operations which leave tiny scars, because of the laser’ top (very small cannula), this laser turns the fat cells into liquid to complete the suction. As this is a convenient method it can also be used on the face area for problematic spots. Also remember that there is a small possibility to have burns as a result of high level of laser power

On the other hand, SmartLipo is slightly different. Again the laser assisted method is used but there are two ways to do it depending on your needs. One laser frequency is used for sculpting and reshaping the body by liquefying the fat. The other type of laser frequency is used for lifting and tightening the skin like collagen boosting. This SmartLipo is one of the popular and recently developed techniques that also shortens the recovery time. This means a pricy procedure though. If you consult your doctor and search for the best option for your need, this method may also be advised.

Super-wet Liposuction or Suction Assisted Liposuction

It is a traditional liposuction technique: a mixture of fluids are injected to your body with cannula where you want to remove the fat, and with the help of this fluid the fat is detected and easily sucked by the doctor. It is not a painful process, easy to perform and the results are impressive. This technique can be used for most parts of your body, not only the belly area, but also the legs, arms or thighs. Since this technique has been used for many years, surgeons have confidence in it and it is relatively more economical than other methods. The disadvantage of this method is that you must undergo a full general anesthesia rather than a local anesthesia. 

Tumescent Liposuction

This method is relatively similar to suction assisted technique but the amount of fluid used in the procedure is less than the traditional method. And it may take longer to perform it . Tumescent technique makes the fat swollen so that it will become easier to detect the problematic area and also decrease the bleeding compared to the super-wet method. This is one of the most common methods used among surgeons; however, modern and new techniques are lacking in this method.

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction UAL

As we mentioned before, liposuction focuses on stubborn fat. One of the alternatives is to use Ultrasound waves. By the help of ultrasound waves, the stubborn fat cells can be detected and removed by suction. Compared to the Tumescent liposuction technique some burns or pain can be occured but heal in a short period of time. The advantage of this method is the results are faster than traditional methods and without ultrasound waves the procedure may be repeated several times. If you have stubborn fat like seen in male chests or back, you can think about this Ultrasound assisted Liposuction.

To sum up, to find the best liposuction type you should consider your needs, the area on which you would like to have a liposuction procedure, the amount of fat you would like to get rid of, and how much money and budget you have for such operations. Also, always remember that besides the machine or liposuction type, the trusty surgeon and experienced doctors in dependable clinics should be considered as priority before deciding an operation.
