Types of Liposuction Available in the Market
The most common are: Standard, Power-assisted, Ultrasound-assisted, and Laser-assisted; however, there is many more options available:
Standard liposuction A.K.A Traditional or tumescent liposuction involves placing fluid into the fat cell layer. This fluid contains a local anesthetic as well as agents to shrink blood vessels. The fluid is put in is then removed together with fat using hollow cannulas.
Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) devices have recently become available. PAL devices use power supplied by an electric motor or compressed air to produce either a rapid in-and-out movement or a spinning rotation of an attached liposuction cannula. Advocates of PAL assert that it makes liposuction easier for the surgeon.
Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (UAL) requires the use of a large volume of tumescent fluid and uses either a metal probe or metal paddle to deliver ultrasonic energy and heat into subcutaneous fat. Internal UAL is the term used to describe the technique where a long metal probe, which may be solid or hollow, is inserted into fat through a large incision.
Vaser Liposuction (also called Liposelection by Vaser) is a form of UAL that wields advanced technology to avoid many of the complications inherent in traditional UAL. With the Vaser device, patients enjoy a much faster recovery, less bruising and swelling and a better end result.
Laser-assisted liposuction AKA (Lipolisis Laser) uses a cool or cold laser beam to emulsify the fat, which is not removed by suction. Because this approached is performed on smaller areas of fat, the emulsified fat is left in place for natural absorption by the body. Small incisions are placed to drain any excess fluids or fat.
