There are several different types of liposuction techniques that can be used to remove excess fat from the body. Some of the most common types of liposuction include:
Traditional liposuction: This is the most common type of liposuction and involves the use of a cannula (a thin, hollow tube) that is inserted through small incisions in the skin to suction out fat from the targeted areas.
Power-assisted liposuction (PAL): This technique uses a vibrating cannula to break up and suction out fat more efficiently than traditional liposuction.
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL): This technique uses ultrasound energy to liquefy fat cells, making them easier to remove with the cannula.
Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL): This technique uses laser energy to liquefy fat cells before they are suctioned out of the body.
Water-assisted liposuction (WAL): Also known as hydro-assisted liposuction, this technique uses a pressurized stream of water to dislodge fat cells from the body before they are removed.
Radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL): This technique uses radiofrequency energy to liquefy and remove fat cells from the body.
