Liposuction Types

To find out which Liposuction is right for you, talk to your Plastic Surgeon about your options. Many doctors say that ultrasound and Laser-Assisted Liposuction are more efficient at fat removal than the traditional technique. These techniques are also more selective, meaning that they disrupt fat cells, but not blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. As a result, patients often have a shorter recovery period, less post-op pain and bruising, and increased skin tightening. It’s important to note, however, that these techniques also have a higher risk for thermal injuries and abnormal scarring under the skin.


Tumescent Liposuction or also called Suction-Assisted Liposuction (SAL) is the most traditional method of the procedure. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area of the body where the tube will insert. Next, a large amount of anesthetic solution injects, causing blood vessels to shrink and constrict. The fat suck out of the body with the help of a vacuum pump attached to the cannula (tube).

Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) involves the same technique as SAL, with the addition of a vibrating tool which speeds up the breakdown of fat.

Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL) transmits ultrasonic energy through a hand piece which loosens and melts the fat, making it easier to remove larger volumes through the cannula. This technique may be particularly helpful in removing fat from the upper abdomen, sides, and back. It’s best for large areas and also for male patients.

Vaser Liposuction is a variation of UAL in which a grooved cannula evenly disperses the energy, improving the breakdown and removal of fat.

Laser-Assisted Liposuction (LAL) is a relatively new technology. It works much like UAL but uses low-energy waves to liquefy the fat, which removes through the cannula. In areas with very thin layers of fat like the face and the neck, the cannula might not be used. In these cases, the liquefy fat cells will absorb by the body.
