Liposuction is one of the famous cosmetic method to remove excess fat deposits in specific areas of the body in-order to slim and reshape the body to improve and enhance the body contour.
Liposuction can be performed mainly in two ways – Surgical & Non-surgical
Non surgical liposuction techniques are widely used nowadays since it doesn’t have any surgical procedures. These techniques use radio frequency, laser energy, ultrasound or cold for reducing fat in various body parts.
Based upon this non-surgical liposuction can be named as below :
- U-lipo or Ultrasound Liposuction
- Power Assisted Liposuction
- Tumescent Liposuction
- Laser Lipo
- Smart Lipo
- Six Pack Liposuction
- Vaser Liposuction
U-lipo or Ultrasound Liposuction :
Ultrasound Liposuction which is also known as U-Lipo is carried out by making use of a RF based system for generating low frequency ultrasonic waves. These low frequency ultrasonic waves are targeted into the adipose tissues which is just below the skin. This is the portion were the fat are accumulated. The effect of ultrasonic waves leads to the breakage of the fat cells & the other cells unaltered.
Power Assisted Liposuction :
Power-Assisted Liposuction or PAL is carried out by inserting a vibrating cannula by making small incisions in the targeted area of the body. The cannula vibrates and this vibration causes the separation of fat cells from the tissues. Then the separated fat cells are sucked by the power assisted cannula which is inserted through incisions. This doesn’t require any manual effort by the surgeon. The incisions are very small and will heal soon.
Tumescent Liposuction :
In this procedure, a ultra-diluted local anesthesia is injected into the area which is targeted. The fat under the skin became firm & swollen because of this injection. Then general liposuction is carried out to remove the fat.
Laser Lipo :
In laser lipo, a low energy laser light wave in allowed to to be delivered in under the skin of targeted area. This will break up the fat cells.
Smart Lipo :
In smart lipo the fat cells are broken and melted without interrupting any of the nearby nerves, blood vessels and other soft tissues by using temperature sensing cannula and medical-grade laser energy.
Six Pack Liposuction :
This procedure is carried out for six pack abs. Here Tumescent Liposuction is carried put which is followed by small incisions that are made in the abdomen. By these incisions abdominal fat are removed.
Vaser Liposuction :
Vibration Assisted Sound Energy at Resonance uses ultrasound energy to liquefy the targeted fat cells.
