We often see or hear people struggling with their obstinate fat that just does not go away despite regular diet or exercise. It can get quite frustrating when you fail to achieve the desired results even after consistent efforts. So, does the road end there?

You probably still have some hopes when Liposuction comes into the picture!

Liposuction (or Lipo, popularly known) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure done in daycare. It involves suctioning out excess fat from certain body parts like the abdomen, hips, arms, thighs, under-chin, or face. Nevertheless, It is important to note that Liposuction reduces fat from specific areas only and not the overall body. 

Over the decades’ liposuction has gone through various refinements in technique and technology. Technology has the advantage of making liposuction less tiring and delivering better results with faster recovery. 

Manual Liposuction

Manual Liposuction is the most common and traditional method of performing liposuction. It involves manual force to break down the connection between fat cells in the form of a fat layer by moving and rotating the cannula.

However, this is substantially time-taking with surgeon’s fatigue leading to the limitation in the fat volume removed or result. 

MicroAire Liposuction

MicroAire technology uses a power-assisted cannula instrument. Its gentle back and forth movement easily cuts through the toughened fat tissues.

MicroAire power-assisted liposuction is a flexible fat-reducing technique that can help you shape multiple areas of the body like your hips, thighs, and love handles. It can also help you lose fat around your abdomen, calves, and neck. MicroAire method is even beneficial to your arms and back.

Moreover, it comes with a multi-port configuration, so that fat tissues are extracted to be used in specific forms and volumes. As a result, these fat tissues can be safely used for autograft purposes in other areas of the body.

Superficial liposuction done with Microaire is best for muscle definition and it offers exceptional skin tightening as compared to laser-assisted liposuction.

Laser-assisted Liposuction

Laser-assisted liposuction treatment is a minimally invasive method. A tiny laser fiber is used during the procedure to liquefy targeted fat cells, which are then suctioned away, though some smaller areas do not require suction. As a result, there is less bruising and a faster recovery.

In simple words, heat from laser optic fibers is used to cut down the fat, and it is drained out through a series of tubes. Thus, lipo done through this process has a faster recovery rate as recorded. laser-based lipo also offers better skin retraction.

Ultra-sound Liposuction

The ultra-sound liposuction method uses gentle ultrasound energy to aid in fat removal.

During the procedure, safe ultrasound waves liquefy fatty deposits inside the body itself, making them easier to remove through the cannula. Also, this procedure is gentle enough to smoothen and define fibrous areas, while ensuring firmer skin retraction after the procedure. It is highly recommended for secondary liposuction cases.

Vibration-assisted Liposuction

Vibration-assisted Liposuction uses a pneumatic device that puts the suction cannula to vibration. This assists in reducing fat cells faster, increasing the efficiency and shortening the duration of the entire process.

With vibration-assisted liposuction, patients can achieve a leaner, smoother, and more attractive body contour. Additionally, this method is capable of removing excess fat from a variety of trouble spots limiting the chances of tissue irregularities.

Water-Jet Liposuction

Water-jet Liposuction is a technique that breaks up fatty deposits, including cellulites, and converts them to a gelatinous state. After this, a suction cannula is inserted beneath the skin’s surface to suction out the gelatinous deposits without harming the surrounding tissues.

Here, a saline spray is used to loosen the fatty tissues for an easier, faster, and less aggressive fat-removal process.

The water-Jet method is a very gentle process, ensuring the least cell damage. Not only this, but it also harvests a greater number of healthy cells. Besides, the recovery time rendered by this method is comparatively lesser than other lipo methods.
