There are many different types of liposuction techniques and technologies available in today’s market. However, it is very important to remember that only a few of these techniques and technologies are medically proven to give enhanced results. Many companies come out advertising new technologies that seem too good to be true…well, that’s because they usually are.

At Ciao Bella Medical Spa we utilize the Tumescent Technique that can be performed by utilizing different technologies. The technology used depends on each individual’s fat consistency. For this same reason, it is normal for the surgeon to use different technologies on one individual patient. It is important to know that the type of liposuction performed on each patient is what the doctor finds best suitable for each individual.
