What are the types of Liposuction?

Tumescent Liposuction:

The most popular form of liposuction as well as the most common

 is tumescent liposuction, which is more effective, safer and less painful than

traditional liposuction, and has a quicker recovery time. It is performed as an outpatient

procedure and does not require general anesthesia.Outpatient procedures are often conducted in a doctor's office or an ambulatory

surgery center, but can also be performed in an outpatient unit within a hospital.

Outpatient surgeries allow the patient to recover without needing to commit for

a hospital stay, allowing the ability to recover from the comfort of your hotel.

How it’s done: 

During tumescent liposuction, the surgeon uses a thin tube called the cannula that is attached to a vacuum which removes the fat from under the skin. In most cases, the surgeon will insert the cannula through multiple points to treat the area from different angles.


Like all liposuction surgeries, tumescent liposuction carries both benefits and risks. Complications are rare and typically minor. The most common risks include skin irregularity, lumpiness, dimpling, loose skin, numbness, fluid accumulation, infections and scarring. If these do occur, they can be easily corrected in most cases. 


The recovery time for tumescent liposuction is significantly shorter than traditional liposuction, after the surgery you will experience some mild pain and discomfort, which will go away in about 24 hours. Depending on your pain tolerance or affected area you might need to take some pain medications. After the surgery the affected area will experience some swelling, which will go away between 1-2 weeks.

How it’s done: 

Laser-assisted liposuction may be performed under local anesthesia alone, or general anesthesia. This is an individual choice between the surgeon and the patient. The patient’s desired area of operation will be marked across using markers of various colors in order to differentiate areas of elevation. Once marked, the patient is brought to the operating, A thin tube containing a fiber-optic  of microns in diameter is inserted through a small incision in the skin. This fiber delivers precise and direct energy laser into the tissue, reaching the adipocytes. The doctor identifies the targeted area by a light guided laser that can be seen through the skin. breaking the fat cell membranes and blending its content. The semi-liquid fat can be easily removed or in case of small quantities is metabolized and naturally eliminated by the body.


As like other types of liposuction operations, there are Potential for infection, dimpling, lumpiness, numbness, scarring, discoloration, or sagging skin, as well as discomfort in the surgically treated area. Since a laser is being inserted under the skin, burning of the underlying skin can also be a side effect.

Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction (UAL) - Vaser Liposuction:

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction, also known as “UAL,” is a relatively new liposuction technique that uses sound waves to liquefy stubborn fat. Although it is not a substitute for traditional liposuction, ultrasound assisted liposuction can be an effective tool for removing fat from fibrous body areas, such as the male breasts or the back, or for removing larger volumes of fat in a single procedure.

Often, traditional liposuction is performed with ultra sound assisted liposuction to help shape ultrasound assisted liposuction treated areas or to treat areas of the body not suited for ultrasound assisted liposuction, such as the neck and inner thighs.

How it’s done:

Ultrasonic liposuction uses ultrasonic waves to liquefy fat in the patient's targeted area, later to be sucked out by a tube (cannula), or a thin type of medical vacuum. This type of liposuction is typically used for fibrous and stubborn areas within the patient, such as the knees, neck, chin, feet and ankles.


While UAL is a more precise form of liposuction, there are a few downsides to this cosmetic procedure. There’s a greater risk of scarring compared to other forms of liposuction. As with many other liposuction operations there is the risk of skin loss, abdominal holes, and nerve damage. There’s also a risk of infection just as with any type of surgery.

Another possibility is the development of fluid-filled pockets that can develop where liposuction takes place. They’re a result of a combination of old blood plasma and dead cells exiting the body from the liposuction operation.


Recovery from UAL is relatively short compared to the time it takes to see results. Since this is usually an outpatient procedure, you’ll be able to go leave the hospital right away if you don’t have any side effects. It’s recommended to take a few days off to rest and recover.

The doctor may recommend moderate exercise, such as walking, after a few days of the operation. This helps keep your blood flowing, so blood clots don’t develop. If you have swelling, you may have to wear compression garments (corset).


UAL has many benefits that other types of SAL (suction Assisted Linoplasty) do not have. UAL allows for more accurate suction and liquidation of fat deposits, It also reduces the risk of blood loss and negotiates scar tissue that other types of liposuction cant penetrate. 

While making it easier for the surgeons as they are melting fat before making an insertion. And also reducing any discomfort to the patient.

Note: Gynecomastia can be removed using UAL. But it cannot remove cellulite.
