New methods of liposuction

Plastic Surgery.New methods of liposuction.The popularity of liposuction has led to the improvement of traditional techniques to achieve the best results and reduce the likelihood of complications.Thus, there were two new methods in practice this operation.

Traditional liposuction (tumescent liposuction)

traditional liposuction, which appeared in the 70s.XX century., It remains the most common way to remove fat.The method described above is a traditional liposuction.


Traditional liposuction has been used for 30 years and provides a stable and satisfactory results if it is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon.In this operation, showed no long-term health consequences.Almost all the experts that perform liposuction, are familiar with this method.The experience transformed into better results.The operation does not require sophisticated equipment and therefore its price may

be lower than the new methods.


Traditional liposuction can lead to greater blood loss than the methods using ultrasound.When a large volume liposuction, this aspect could be crucial.

The recovery process after liposuction in different patients proceeds differently.At 27-year-old Andy, a consultant on industrial design, three liters of fat removed from the sides and thighs.It is three days stopped taking pain medication and a week later went to work.Nina, 26-year-old friend Andy, after liposuction one liter of fat was forced to stay at home for two weeks.

Power assisted liposuction Power assisted liposuction

is a modification of traditional liposuction, in which the cannula, which the surgeon introduces into the fatty layer, vibrates.This facilitates its movement through the fat.Some plastic surgeons say the reduction of pain, swelling and bruising, as well as better results.

Ultrasonic liposuction

Ultrasonic liposuction was developed in Europe in the 80s.XX century., And first appeared in the United States in the early 90s.Widespread in the US, this method has received in 1995. In ultrasonic liposuction combined use of high-frequency sound waves to vacuum suction.


names Traditional liposuction can have the following names:


Tumescent liposuction

Wet liposuction

traditional lipoplasty

Tumescent lipoplasty

traditional liposculpture

Tumescent Liposculpture

Suction lipectomy (SAL)


Standard lipoplasty


Standard liposculpture

Tumescent Suction lipectomy

And other

Ultrasonic liposuction can have the following names:

Ultrasonic lipoplasty

Ultrasonic liposculpture

ultrasonic lipectomy

Ultrasonic Suction lipectomy

Standard ultrasoundliposuction

And other

New methods of liposuction.Some plastic surgeons use liposuction alternative names, such as lipoplasty, liposculpture or lipectomy.They do not offer a new or more effective method, but only trying to convince you of this

first introduced in the fatty layer of tumescent fluid, as in traditional liposuction, and then uses a cannula that can emit ultrasonic vibrations.Ultrasound liquefied fat, low power which is removed by suction.

Advantages Compared to traditional liposuction, ultrasonic liposuction to reduce blood loss.Some plastic surgeons have also noted a decrease in pain, swelling and bruising, and faster recovery.


Because ultrasonic liposuction expensive equipment is not available everywhere, and some plastic surgeons cost of this operation above.Cuts at it a little more than the traditional, moreover, near the treated area of ​​skin burns are sometimes observed, although this is very rare, and their formation can be prevented by proper technique.After ultrasonic liposuction is more likely accumulation of fluid or seroma.However, the probability of formation of seroma is reduced if during the operation put drainage, which is removed in a few days.After ultrasonic liposuction patients also noted a painful tingling, which may persist for several months.Ultrasonic liposuction takes longer, which can increase the cost and increase the risk.

External ultrasonic liposuction

If external ultrasonic liposuction, the skin on the treated area is exposed to ultrasonic waves, and then the surgery itself.Compared to traditional liposuction liposuction so it has the following advantages: less blood loss, less swelling, less discomfort, faster recovery.From ultrasonic liposuction, it differs less risk of complications such as seroma, burn and painful postoperative tingling.This method is more expensive and requires more time than conventional liposuction.

choice of method

If after reviewing the information above, you can not decide which method is better, do not worry - you're not alone.Plastic surgeons also not agreed.Each specialist strive to apply the operation, which he likes, and therefore it is necessary to rely on the opinion of your doctor.Do not make the mistake of trying to convince the surgeon, so he took advantage of a new method for themselves.
