Different Procedural Methods of Liposuction

There are a lot of unanswered questions regarding the different procedures involved in liposuction. Many people even remain oblivious of the fact that there is more than one way to perform this procedure which a lot of people are very eager to try out.  Here you can find all the details and information regarding non-invasive procedures for liposuction.


The different procedures of liposuction have various costs depending on which specific area you want to get liposuction performed upon and how long that procedure will take. Different plastic surgeons have different costs and the location of where it is performed also affects its cost. The prices of liposuction can vary from $1500 up to $15,000 with reference to the more modern methods that are used now. The modern methods, however, are cheaper than the traditional ones as they do not require as much anesthesia, are less invasive and have a shorter recovery period.

Non-Surgical Liposuction

This form of liposuction does not require an invasive procedure and is mostly performed without anesthesia. Various procedures come under this form of liposuction such as laser-based procedure, Smart Lipo, to sound-based Ultrasonic and Vaser treatment. Although these procedures may be referred to as non-surgical, they do involve the use of surgical instruments to some extent for incision. However, when compared to the older more traditional methods, non-surgical procedures are considerably less invasive.

Due to the perks of including less recovery time, cheaper rates and lesser side effects, it won’t be long that this form of surgery will be identified as simple and plain ‘liposuction’. However, before that happens, the less invasive option is one to be considered by anyone looking for cosmetic surgery.

Ultrasonic Liposuction

This sound-based procedure involves the use of a gel that is injected into the fat cells, which is then caused to move in reaction to the ultrasonic sound waves. The movement the gel leads to the tearing of the fat cells; they are flushed out of the body in a natural way, with a minimum amount of pain or discomfort caused during the process. The procedure is carried under local anesthesia and modern machines make the procedure much safer than previously used machines which were scrutinized and their safety questioned.

Vaser Liposuction

This procedure is becoming increasingly popular and attracting a lot of attention after having been introduced within the last decade or so. This form of relatively new cosmetic surgery is the least invasive of all procedures where only the localized area is numbed while the patient is still very much awake. This is also based on ultrasonic laser methods where the ultrasound breaks up the fat cells and flushes them out without affecting any adjacent tissue around the cells and the treated area. On top of this procedure has minimum side effects and very good results, it is also more affordable as compared to other forms of cosmetic surgery.

Smart Liposuction

This form of liposuction, which can also be referred to as Laser Liposuction involves the use of “smart laser” to melt the fat away and naturally flush it out of the body. It is relatively low impact and thus is also very popular amongst those who want an alternative to ultrasonic liposuction.
