Liposuction, a cosmetic surgery aimed at improving body shape and contour, is a minimally invasive procedure involving tiny incisions (less than half an inch) on various body areas. It is ideal for patients with good skin tone and excess fat in areas without stretch marks. Compared to other, more invasive procedures, liposuction has a faster recovery time and minimal pain, allowing patients to return to normal activities in just a few days.
Types of liposuction Customized body sculpting techniques
At Northern Jersey Plastic Surgery Center, we offer various types of liposuction techniques tailored to your specific needs and goals. These techniques include:
- Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL): PAL utilizes a vibrating cannula that helps break up and remove fat more efficiently. The gentle vibrations allow for precise control and enhanced sculpting of the treated areas, resulting in smoother and more defined contours.
- Ultrasonic Liposuction: Ultrasonic liposuction employs ultrasonic waves to liquefy fat cells before suctioning. This technique mainly targets areas with denser fat deposits, such as the back, upper abdomen, and male breast tissue.
- Laser-Assisted Liposuction: Laser-assisted liposuction involves using laser energy to liquefy fat cells, making them easier to remove. The laser energy also promotes skin tightening, resulting in a smoother and more toned appearance.
