What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is an effective Fat Removal technique when Diet and Exercise just dont work!

In its simplest form, Liposuction is a surgical procedure that results in the elimination of fat cells.The added benefit is that It gives you the option in determining which area of fat is to be removed, and allows the surgeon to contour the area successfully.

Liposuction can be performed on many areas of the body including but not limited to: Tummy, Hips, Inner and Outer Thighs, Arms, Back, Buttocks, Calves, Ankles, Neck and the breasts/Man Boobs.

There are various types of Liposuction techniques available today. Here I will discuss the three most effective.

LIQUID LIPOSUCTION

Liquid liposuction is the gold standard in liposuction techniques at the moment. It is a step ahead of traditional liposuction as it gentler, safer and provides the surgeon with greater control and accuracy, meaning better and smoother results for the patient.

Tiny incisions are made in the designated area. A canula is inserted that infuses water which separates the fat from surrounding tissue. Twilight sedation is used, so you remain awake during the procedure. The use of less anasthetic and the water results in less swelling and greater safety for the patient.

The fat is removed after the fat has been separated and is gone for good!

LASER LIPOSUCTION

Liposuction has also benefited from the proliferation of Laser Technology. In essence, laser energy is used to liquefy fat cells before they are suctioned and permanently removed. It is great to use Laser Liposuction as a complement to liquid liposuction.

Laser liposuction has the added advantage of tightening the skin instantaneously, and the improvements continue well after the treatment. This is another reason why liquid and laser lipo work as a great duo as most people are concerned about loose skin after the fat is removed with just liposuction.

The Skin tightening effect occurs because the laser energy reacts with the deep layers of the skin, causing the collagen to tighten, helping the skin to retract.

BODYTITE

Bodytite is the latest Liposuction product on the market that uses Radio Frequency to remove fat cells as well as has the added benefit of tightening the skin. It provides dramatic improvements to the skin , enhancing its tone and texture.

Radiofrequency energy is used to melt and remove fat through a tiny insicion. Pre-melting of the fat assists in lower trauma to the body therefore reducing post-procedure pain, swelling or bruising.

The heating of soft tissue stimulates new collagen, and helps in skin tightening.
