Does the Type of Liposuction Matter More than the Cosmetic Surgeon?

If you’ve started researching your liposuction options, you’ve probably come across quite a few buzzwords and techniques like laser lipo, hi-definition lipo and power assisted lipo. But the truth is that no matter which liposuction technique is used, the key to success is having a skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeon behind your procedure.

So how does liposuction work in the first place? And what should you look for in a liposuction surgeon? This quick guide will answer these important questions.

How Does Liposuction Work?

Traditional tumescent liposuction is still considered the gold-standard technique. This is a two-part method that starts with injections of a sterile solution that helps to loosen the unwanted fat cells in the targeted area to make them easier to remove.

Then, your cosmetic surgeon will carefully place small incisions, through which a small hollow tube called a cannula can be inserted. Using this device, the loosened fat cells are suctioned away and the incisions are closed back up.

Tumescent liposuction is the most commonly used lipo technique and is very effective.

Pick Your Cosmetic Surgeon First

Before you worry about which liposuction technique might be best for you, start by choosing a highly skilled cosmetic surgeon. Schedule a one-on-one consultation and ask questions like:

  • How many liposuction procedures have you performed?
  • Do you have before and after pictures?
  • Am I a good candidate for lipo?
  • Which technique do you recommend?

Once you’ve found the perfect cosmetic surgeon for your procedure, then you can get into discussing the details of your procedure, including options and add-ons to get optimal body contouring results.
