Liposuction Technique Options
Cutting-edge technology now allows us to use liposuction for much more than just removing fat to create more slender body contours. While patients can choose to undergo liposuction for the primary purpose of eliminating fat, we also offer BodyTite to tighten skin as well as VASER® HD liposuction and BBL liposculpture to construct more sculpted, shapely physiques.
BodyTite offers a minimally invasive form of fat reduction and skin tightening. Radiofrequency (RF) energy from the device liquefies the fat cells in the target area, making them easier to remove through the suction cannula. The RF energy also heats the skin and connective tissue, which results in tighter, smoother skin.
Because BodyTite is a nonsurgical treatment, it offers the benefit of a faster recovery time compared to surgical liposuction procedures.
VASER HD Liposuction
VASER high definition (HD) is a type of ultrasound-assisted liposuction (also known as ultrasonic liposuction) that precisely sculpts the body to create more defined contours. It strategically removes unwanted fat cells from around the muscles and leaves a thin layer of fat over them to enhance muscle definition. After this procedure, areas such as the neck, under the chin (submental area), arms, abdomen, legs and male chest can appear more toned.
VASER is an acronym for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. VASER HD liposuction delivers sound waves into the target area to break the bonds between the fat cells and liquefy them, which allows for them to be removed more easily and precisely with the suction cannula. Tumescent fluid is also injected to numb the area, further soften the fat and constrict capillaries to reduce blood loss.
This advanced liposuction technique can target deeper layers of fat cells and remove large or small amounts of fat. The use of ultrasound energy makes fat removal gentler with less trauma to the surrounding tissues, which allows for a faster recovery.
Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) liposculpture involves removing unwanted fat from one area of the body with liposuction and transferring it to the buttocks for increased volume. This technique of butt augmentation with fat transfer (also known as butt fat grafting) can create a larger, rounder and overall more shapely butt.
Patients will need to have enough excess fat to create the desired buttocks volume and shape.
