Types of Liposuction

Smartlipo Laser Liposuction

Smart Liposuction is a safe and effective procedure that uses a laser to melt away deposits of fat and help sculpt your body. Smartlipo is an in-office procedure and is performed under a local anesthetic. Patients walk out of the procedure under their own power and be back to normal daily routines within 1 to 2 days. Because of the fine instruments used, there is less trauma to the tissue resulting in less bleeding, swelling and bruising. This dramatically reduces the recovery time. With Laser Liposuction, there is less risk, lower cost and faster recovery than traditional liposuction. Smartlipo is the smarter alternative to traditional liposuction.

Traditional Liposuction Surgery

Liposuction is the removal of unwanted lumps, bulges, and areas of fat using thin suction tubes (cannula) that are placed into the body fat through small incisions. A vacuum is applied through a hose attached to the cannula. This draws fat out of the body.

Liposuction is typically performed in an operating room under general anesthesia. Due to the risk of anesthesia, time is of the essence and larger instruments are used to speed fat removal. As a result, irregularities are more frequent and loose, stretched-out skin is not treated. Traditional liposuction is generally quite costly and has higher risk associated with the procedure and recovery.

Tumescent Liposuction

With tumescent liposuction, a large volume of natural saline solution, containing very dilute amounts of a local anesthetic and adrenaline, are dispersed into the fatty tissue. The fat is then removed through a small cannula inserted into the skin. After tumescent liposuction procedures, many patients may get up and walk out of the office without assistance. Most patients are usually back to their regular routine in a couple of days.

At Beleza Medspa, Dr. Broder combines the use of tumescent liposuction and Smartlipo Liposuction in order to produce amazing results for larger areas of unwanted fat. The Smartlipo Liposuction will have you in with Dr. Broder one day, and out turning heads the next!

Vaser LipoSelection

Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasound energy to break down the fat cells before they are removed. These ultrasound waves are transmitted through small probes located on the cannula. This causes less injury to the surrounding tissues than traditional liposuction.  In a process called liposelection, the fat is selectively removed.  Vaser is ideal for fibrous areas like the back and flanks.
