Liposuction is a medical operation that uses the suction method to remove fat from certain parts of the body.

Reasons for Liposuction

Liposuction slims and reshapes the specific body areas to improve the patient’s body contours and proportions.

Liposuction is used to remove exercise and diet-resistant fat from areas of the body such as the abdomen, upper arms, buttocks, calves, ankles, chest, and back, hips and thighs, chin and neck.


Furthermore, sometimes liposuction can be used for breast reduction or treatment of gynecomastia.


When you gain weight, the number and volume of fat cells increase. Liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in specific areas. The quantity of fat extracted depends on the area’s appearance and fat volume. The resulting changes in the contour are usually permanent so long as the weight remains stable.

Operation Details


Surgery for liposuction varies from minor to major operations. That depends on what area is involved in the body and how much fat is being extracted.

At Tumescent liposuction, lidocaine and epinephrine are used to make fat swollen and thus easier to identify and remove the fat cells.

An anesthetic is injected into pockets of fat to make them swell and a suction device with a cannula attached is used to remove fat cells.

Tumescent Liposuction’s advantages are that it does not cause much bleeding and bruising. But Tumescent does not have the best technological enhancement.


Ultrasound uses sound waves which are high-frequency that can create a high amount of energy are focused on fat tissues and makes it easier to dissolve the fat cells.

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction is mostly used in areas that have tougher fat. Another advantage of UAL is that a larger volume of fat can be safely removed since it is liquified and less likely to bruise or bleed.


Laser-assisted liposuction is similar to ultrasound-assisted liposuction except that it uses a laser to break down the fat.

At laser-assisted liposuction, the laser fiber and needed cannula are small for the suction of the liquefied fat. As a result, LAL requires small incisions which can heal faster and scar-free. Also, lasers are easy to control which means the results can be more precise. The surgeon can give you the natural shape that you desire.


Power-assisted liposuction uses a cannula attached to an oscillating handpiece which is a popular body-sculpting technology.

The vibration that the oscillating handpiece provides, helps to break down the dense fat tissue quicker and easier for a faster recovery.


Suction-assisted is the oldest type of liposuction. In this type of liposuction, small incisions are made over the operation area. A needle called a cannula is inserted through the incisions to suction out the fat cells.

There are several disadvantages of Suction-assisted liposuction as well. It causes more bleeding and bruising than other types of liposuction and it is harder to control fat removal. People often have to have more than one treatment to get the results they want.


Radio-Frequency assisted liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that uses thermal energy to remove unwanted fat.

Radio-Frequency waves liquefy the fat and they are suctioned from the body by the cannula at this method. At the same time, radio-frequency also stimulate the production of collagen beneath the skin.
