Top 3 Liposuction Methods

If you are troubled by unwanted fat deposits in any part of your body, consult the liposuction specialists at our Newport Beach office. Liposuction can treat pockets of fat deposited in the buttocks, hips, thighs, abdomen, face and neck, and other common problem areas. Our doctors can help you reshape specific areas by removing excess fat and improving body contours with these surgical methods:

  • Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL): Very popular with our surgeons, this method doesn’t require great manual efforts to remove excess fat deposits. The method uses a specialized cannula to extract fat from the body, with a small mechanical device at the tip making rapid vibrations. This method requires only the same small incisions as traditional liposuction, making it convenient for the plastic surgeon to efficiently and quickly remove excess fat while promising a quick liposuction recovery time.
  • Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction (UAL): This method uses high-frequency sound waves to break up the fatty tissue, which can then be easily extracted. Women often prefer UAL to have the excess fat below the bra strap removed, and can also be used in many other areas of the body. A safe and gentle procedure, UAL also causes less trauma to surrounding tissues.
  • Tumescent Liposuction: This method uses a medicated solution, which is injected into the fatty areas. This is useful in safely removing larger amounts of fat, resulting in less blood loss, pain, and bruising. Tumescent fluid is also used when performing PAL and UAL procedures.
