Looking into Laser Liposuction and Ultrasonic Liposuction

Laser liposuction uses laser technology to remove fat from around many areas of the body including breasts on men, buttocks, chin, face with the exception of areas around the eyes, hips, inner and outer thighs, neck, pubic mound, upper arms and waist. This technique rapidly dissolves the fat as well as tightens the skin around the affected area. There is usually no need for an anesthetic and may be performed in a doctors office. Such procedures are meant to be less invasive to increase the safety of the technique as well as decrease the recovery time for the patient.

Ultrasonic liposuction is one of the latest developments in liposuction. This technique liquefies fat before it is removed from the affected area. The melted fat is injected with tumescent fluid to emulsify it so that it can be removed more easily. Ultrasonic liposuction is generally used in hard to reach areas such as the ankles, cheeks, chin, knees and neck and reserved for those who may need specific body contouring. Like laser liposuction, this technique tightens the skin during the procedure so that the patient does not have to have any additional procedures such as body lifts or tummy tucks to get rid of baggy or excess skin.

Liposuction candidates are those who are in good health and have an active lifestyle. Although they are not overweight, they have trouble getting rid of fat in certain areas with regular diet and exercise. Furthermore, there are a few risks with any liposuction procedure. For example, there is a chance of blistering, burning or scarring. There is also a risk of seroma in which the body produces excess fluid to make up for the removal of the excess fat. In this case, the area is drained with a syringe until the cavity closes.
