Types of Liposuction Procedures

People who want to get rid of stubborn body fat, always try different options like a diet or exercise. However, you must be surprised to know that body fat is likely to be resistant to this kind of option and can make your appearance completely unbalanced or lumpy. Here comes the need for liposuction procedures.

To start with, you need to know that there are different types of liposuction procedures. Every type will have its way of advantages and disadvantages. So, here we are going to talk about the different types and how you can choose the best one for you. 

One thing is to consult your physician whenever you want to try this new procedure. You can visit their clinic or get an online consultation. Liposuction NYC is one of the specialty clinics that focuses on 3 different surgeries like Targeted liposuction, Brazilian butt lift, and the fat transfer to breasts. You can get more details on their website liposuctionnyc.com.

Now let us understand the various types of procedures:

a). Suction-assisted liposuction:

This is one oldest types of liposuction, where a small incision is done in the area where the suction needs to be done. Then a needle called a cannula will be inserted through that incision to suck those fat cells out. Here the recovery time can be anything between 1 to 3 months, all depending on the extent of the procedure and time to heal. The advantage here is that it is cheap as compared to other types. The disadvantage here is that it causes more bleeding and bruising as compared to others. Also, it is difficult to control the fat removal here, so there will be a higher rate of imperfection.

b). Tumescent Liposuction:

The word tumescent means “swollen”. Here the method is the same as the traditional method, but here lidocaine and epinephrine are used to make that fat swollen which will make it easy to be identified and sucked out. Here too a small needle called the cannula is used to remove all the fat cells. The main advantage of this method is that it doesn’t cause much bleeding and bruising. A person can heal within a method after this procedure.

c). Ultrasound-assisted liposuction:

Ultrasound is a very famous tool that has been used for imaging for 40 years. It can also be used as a treatment now. Ultrasound has a high-frequency wave that creates a high amount of energy in the targeted tissues. This makes it easier to remove those fat cells via a suction method. It is mainly used for areas where traditional methods do not work. The healing time here is the same as the tumescent method, but people may experience some occasional blistering.

d). Laser-assisted liposuction:

Here the laser is used to break down fat. Here too an anesthetic and epinephrine are injected in the targeted area and then the laser probe is inserted using a cannula. This laser will then break down fat, which will make them easier to be removed. The recovery time here too is of one month.

Before you choose the method, discuss with your surgeon about your priorities and then go ahead with the treatment.
