What is the difference between Liposuction, SmartLipo, Vaser and Body Sculpting?
Liposuction is the oldest and most traditional method. It is usually done under general anesthesia in a hospital or ambulatory surgery center. A high-powered suction machine is connected to suction cannulas to remove the fat. There is some blood loss with this procedure plus the risks of general anesthesia.
SmartLipo or SlimLipo is a laser-assisted liposuction that uses high energy light wavelengths to melt fat cells and stimulate the skin to cause retraction and tightening. Because of the heat derived as energy, these types of procedure were developed to treat specific small body parts that were difficult to access with other methods.
Ultrasonic Lipo or Vaser Lipo uses sound waves to help break up fat to make it easier to remove. It is one of the safest methods of far removal.
