Liposuction, also technically referred to as lipoplasty, is a cosmetc procedure that “sucks” and breaks up fat from various parts of the body. Liposuction can be performed on the abdomen, thighs (thighplasty), neck, chin (mentoplasty), arms (brachioplasty), calves and back. The fat is removed through a cannula, using a high-pressure vacuum, which is inserted under the skin. There are various types of lipsuction including:

  • Tumescent liposuction
  • Wet liposuction
  • Super-wet liposuction
  • Dry liposuction
  • Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL)
  • Power-assisted liposuction (PAL)
  • Laser Assisted Lipolysis (LAL)
