Liposuction - Assisted

Laser / Ultrasound Assisted

Liposuction assisted with laser or ultrasound liquefies the fat before it is removed from the body.

What types of assisted liposuction are available?

Laser-assisted liposuction

Laser liposuction focuses low-energy waves delivered by a thin laser fiber that's inserted through small incisions. The laser energy is focused on the part of the body where you'd like to have a fatty pocket removed. After the fat is melted, a small cannula is used to suck out the liquefied fat.

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction

The fat is dissolved by the ultrasonic waves that are emitted from the end of a cannula that's inserted through small incisions. Ultrasonic waves delivered through the cannula emulsify or liquefy the fat. After the fat is liquefied, it is then sucked out through a small cannula.
