Advances in technology in the cosmetic surgery field have created many new liposuction procedures. They have become far less invasive compared to the traditional forms and have a shorter period of recovery. Your cosmetic surgeon can help you choose which one of the new liposuction techniques is best for you.
High Definition Liposuction
This is the 3D sculpting of the chest muscles, abdominal muscles, lower back and the buttocks to enhance and tone their muscles. They can sculpt well-formed ankles and calves, fashion a set of six-pack abs, or enhance flat behinds. Formerly, methods that formed this kind of results were very invasive and caused scarring but nowadays, they are able perform it just by making very small incisions. Surgeons apply liposuction to eliminate fat from some areas then transfer and shape it elsewhere. This new liposuction technique is about $5000. The recovery period is shorter, typically just 2 days, though it may take up 6 months to observe its full effects.
This is a very efficient and very safe new liposuction procedure. The laser technology utilized in this technique is same to that regularly used in dental procedures. In this case, a precisely regulated laser is used to thaw the fat layers through the skin. The fat cells are shattered by the laser then the oily substances are removed through a minute skin incision. Since it’s minimally invasive and uses local anesthesia only, there’s a far lower risk of complications. Usually, patients can go back to work 1-2 days after the procedure. The cost depends on the body area being worked on but usually 30% lesser than traditional method. Immediate results can be observed with constant improvement after some months.
Water-Jet Assisted Liposuction
This is also a new liposuction method. A high-pressure water spray is utilized to detach the fat cells without damaging the blood vessels and nerves. The fat is suctioned out using the cannula tip, minimizing the quantity of tissue swelling. This new liposuction technique allows for better control which permits the results to be enhanced and lessens the chances for corrective surgeries. Studies show that this technique is even efficient when dealing with cellulite. This new liposuction method causes less tissue trauma and takes less time. It can be also performed on several body areas in a single session. Typically, patient can only experience mild pain and can be back to work several days after the procedure.
With these new liposuction procedures, fat shredding is now safer and more efficient.
