Tumescent or Wet Liposuction
The Gold standard for liposuction that involves infiltration of “tumescent fluid” then suctioning the fat mixture with a cannula connected to a syringe or vacuum machine. This is also a part (first process) of most types of liposuction enumerated below.
Laser-Assisted Liposuction (ie Smart Lipo)
Involves insertion of a “laser tip probe” to liquefy the fats. The area where the probe was inserted may be suctioned immediately or left for the body to metabolize and excrete for several weeks.
Radiofrequency Liposuction (Body Tite)
This treatment is usually added to other types of liposuction to help tighten skin which occurs after extensive fat removal. It involves application of external RF probe to the skin after fats are suctioned.

5 Things You Need To Know About


Liposuction is a body contouring or sculpting procedure


Liposuction is a body contouring or sculpting procedure, not a weight losing or weight reduction treatment. Depending on the area or the number of areas to be liposuctioned, only 2000cc to 3000cc of fat can be safely removed.


Liposuction and Obesity

If you are obese, you may be considered as a high risk candidate and may not qualify to undergo liposuction. The reason for this is that chronic medical conditions like diabetes, heart or coronary diseases,  metabolic problems, etc. may be present. Effects of liposuction in obese may also not be appreciable. It is therefore recommended that patients with BMI of 30 or greater need to lose some weight to qualify to undergo Liposuction.


Skin Rippling

Overzealous removal of fats may result to skin “rippling”. This is caused by excess fat removal making the skin very thin (having less fat) and thus cannula tracks under it become visible (the rippling or multiple wave effect). In our Centre, we make sure this complication is avoided by removing only enough fat.


Safety in Liposuction

It will be more safe if your Cosmetic Surgeon is board certified and has a background in General Surgery on top of his fellowship in Cosmetic/Aesthetic Surgery. This will put the surgeon in good position to avoid intra-operative accident of abdominal penetration in tummy liposuction.

Liposuction Laboratory Exams

Several laboratory (blood exams) and ancillary procedures (X-ray and ECG) are usually requested by the cosmetic surgeon prior to liposuction. A cardio-pulmonary clearance from a cardiologist or pulmunologist  is requested for those over 30 or 35 years of age. Those younger patients may undergo the same steps if the doctor find it necessary.


1920s - The first known use of a suction device to remove fat from the body or for contouring was done by French surgeon Charles Dujarier.

1974 - Italian gynecologists Arpad and Giorgio Fischer invented the blunt cannula marking the start of modern liposuction.

1978 - French physicians Illouz and Fournier further developed liposuction around.

1985 – American dermatologist Jeffrey A. Klein invented the tumescent technique for liposuction, which allowed fat removal with less bleeding complications.
