What are the different types of liposuction?

VASER Liposuction

Liposuction has been a popular fat-reduction method for many years, but it can have drawbacks. One of those drawbacks is the risk of damage to nearby tissues; this is why VASER was developed. This advanced liposuction technique uses ultrasound waves to reduce fat cells by breaking them apart and liquefying them. The melted fat is then extracted from the body via a needle, meaning there is less trauma to surrounding tissues. This makes it possible to target delicate areas, such as around the arms and the thighs, with much greater precision and improved safety for the patient. Overall, VASER provides an evolution in liposuction; its unique use of sound energy provides enhanced results compared to traditional fat reduction procedures.

MicroAire Liposuction

Power-assisted liposuction is an advanced form of liposuction, and it's the difference-maker with the MicroAire system. The exact and efficient instrument allows surgeons to perform large-volume fat harvesting and extraction and small-volume sculpting. With its power-assisted technology, doctors can achieve natural body contouring that is impossible with traditional liposuction techniques. Whether you are looking for a complete body transformation or minor adjustments, having an experienced surgeon specializing in MicroAire power-assisted liposuction is essential to achieving long-lasting results.

What are some of the benefits of MicroAire liposuction?

The MicroAire power-assisted liposuction (PAL) system adds gentle vibration to the cannula. The vibration is so delicate that it is barely perceptible to the human eye. Yet, it dramatically reduces the surgeon's force to dislodge stubborn fat. As a result, patients experience less swelling and bruising and faster recovery from the lipo procedure.

What are some of the benefits of VASER liposuction?

With VASER, you can experience reduced trauma and bleeding compared to traditional liposuction methods. In addition, your recovery will be much quicker—you could potentially return to work within 2-3 days, depending on the scale of treatment needed. Furthermore, cellulite removal is achievable due to its selective targeting feature with ultrasound waves that only break down fat cells while avoiding other structures, such as blood vessels and nerves.
