Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that removes fat, but is not done to help people lose weight. While weight loss does happen, it is only a side effect of the body contouring. There are different types of liposuction and which one you have may depend on where the treatment is going to be done and how much is needed.
In fact, there are 4 different kinds of liposuction, but all offer the same end result, which is a body that does not have so many lumps and bumps on it.
- Tumescent liposuction. This is considered the gold standard of all types, perhaps because it is the most used and safest. In tumescent liposuction a micro cannula is used to apply tumescent anaesthetic to the treatment areas. This helps to break down the fat and stop bleeding so the fat cells can more easily be sucked out. The results are very pleasing and can be repeated if necessary without any harm.
