Syringe Liposuction

Types of 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.

Tumescent or Wet Liposuction

Involves insertion of an “ultrasonic probe” (the size of a cannula) as a pre-suction process that will “implode” then dissolve the fats in targeted areas making it easier for the surgeon to suction.

Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction (ie Vaser)

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.

Laser-assisted Liposuction (ie Smart Lipo)

Also uses a probe that vibrates back and forth at around 4000 cycles per minute and partially dissolves the fat while simultaneously being removed by suctioning. PAL has the ease in breaking hard fats in some specific body parts or in areas where a liposuction was already done in the past.

Power-Assisted Liposuction (ie PAL Liposculptor)

Uses a fine spray of water that comes out of the suction cannula to break up fatty deposits. The main benefit of this technique is that it requires less infiltration of fluid and allows for better assessment of the underlying fatty areas which are often masked by the large volume of fluid infiltrated.

Water Liposuction (Body Jet Lipo)

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.

Radiofrequency Liposuction (Body Tite)

  1. Tumescent or Wet  Liposuction

  2. Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction (ie Vaser)

  3. Laser-assisted Liposuction (ie Smart Lipo)

  4. Power-assisted Liposuction (ie PAL Liposculptor)
  5. Water Liposuction (Body Jet Lipo)

  6. Radiofrequency Liposuction (Body Tite)

Tumescent 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.



Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (VASER)


Involves insertion of an “ultrasonic probe” (the size of a cannula) as a pre-suction process that will “implode” then dissolve the fats in targeted areas making it easier for the surgeon to suction.

Anesthesia:

On the day of your liposuction procedure, you are expected to be on at least 8 hours fasting. This will prevent respiratory aspiration of stomach contents when you are put to sleep. Anesthesia is either sedation (via vein) or general (throat tube). Sometimes our anesthesiologist/s may opt for spinal or epidural anesthesia (spine injection) for liposuction below the chest such as tummy or lower limbs. Local anesthesia liposuction (direct injection of anesthesia into the problem area) is possible when only one area is considered for treatment.

Liposuction proper:

            Before proceeding to the operating room, our surgeon will have a final check on you to do the following:

  1. Confirmation of the areas to be treated with liposuction
  2. Photo taking for documentation
  3. Markings or drawing over the problem areas

Consultation with the cosmetic plastic surgeon

  • Identifying the problem areas
  • Treatments options
  • Discussion on expectations and limitations
  • Risks
  • Medical history (heart problems, diabetes, bleeding tendencies, allergies, asthma, etc.)
  • Physical examination
  • Pre-operative instructions

Basic laboratory examinations, chest x-ray and electrocardiogram (ECG)

Cardio-pulmonary evaluation by an internist or cardiologist

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.

Other terms: Lipoplasty, Liposculpture, Lipocontouring

Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic plastic surgery procedures performed worldwide. It aims to reduce localized fat deposits or sculpt certain areas of the body and face that are resistant to diet or exercise.

The procedure involves the use of special numbing fluid (tumescent) which are administered via a long thin but blunt infiltrator. The fluid softens the targeted fats, anesthetizes the area, and constricts the surrounding blood vessels thereby reducing or controlling the bleeding when the surgeon does the fat suctioning.

After a few minutes of waiting, the softened fats are aspirated or sucked out using special blunt hollow tubes or cannulas (typically 2-4mm) connected by a hose to a suctioning device. This can be manually operated with a syringe or with a suction machine. Recent technologies have also incorporated the use of ultrasonic waves, mechanical vibrations, and laser into the liposuction procedure to facilitate easier and less traumatic fat removal.
