Types of Liposuction

What is liposuction? Liposuction is a cosmetic operation during which excess fat is removed from a specific area of ​​the human body. It is used to destroy fat that cannot be driven away by diets or exercises (for example, abdomen liposuction). Usually, it is necessary to make the body more proportional, improve its appearance, and adjust its shape. Liposuction is the most rational solution if you are dreaming of losing weight quickly, and getting rid of local deposits (not losing weight). In rare cases, liposuction is used for severe obesity, when it is necessary to reduce the amount of fat as soon as possible and by any means, because being overweight poses a threat to the patient’s life. Liposuction also helps to remove lipomas.

Laser Liposuction uses laser energy to melt fat whilst at the same time stimulates collagen growth and formation. Laser Liposuction is an effective option to tighten the skin and is a for double chins or “turkey necks”. During laser liposuction, the surgeon makes micro-punctures in the skin, where laser energy enters with the help of the thinnest needle.

Liquid Liposuction (Liposoft)

Liquid Liposuction also known as Lipo Soft is a gentle and effective form of liposuction that can selectively remove unwanted fat with a minimal recover time.

CoolSculpting (Non-Invasive Liposuction)

CoolSculpting is the only non-invasive liposuction technique that is TGA and TCA approved to permanently remove fat. The action of this procedure is based on freezing (using a special apparatus) and the subsequent splitting of fat cells. Further, over the next few months, dead cells are naturally excreted from the body. Cryolipolysis is especially effective on the sides, abdomen, and back. The result of liposuction before and after is preserved for life (since fat cells are not just affected, but destroyed).

Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a body contouring procedure where fat is suctioned out of the body via Vaser Liposuction and re-injected into the buttocks to create a larger, rounder, perkier behind. Fat is cleansed and injected through small punctures into the gluteal muscles. Since adipose tissue will be in a very well-circulated organ (muscle tissue), the absorption rate is low: 60-70%, and there is no displacement of adipose tissue. The result will preserve for many years since muscle tissue accepts adipose tissue well. Based on experience, the final result is visible after about three months.
