What is Liposuction?

The concept of liposuction is surprisingly simple. Liposuction is a surgical technique that improves the
body’s contour by removing excess fat from deposits located between the skin and muscle. Liposuction
involves the use of a small stainless steel tube, called a cannula (from the Latin word for reed, tube,
cane). The cannula is connected to a powerful suction pump and inserted into the fat through small incisions
in the skin. Fat removal is accomplished as the suction cannula creates tiny tunnels through the fatty
layers. After surgery, these tiny tunnels collapse and thus result in an improved body contour.

Liposuction Cost

Lowest Liposuction Price Can Be Most Expensive

Cost of Liposuction is an important factor when considering liposuction surgery. However
the quality of liposuction is more important than the price of liposuction.
If the ultimate goal of liposuction is to have a happy patient, then the surgeon’s
expertise and experience are probably more important than the price.
Liposuction prices are important, but it is not the most important factor to considering
lipo surgery. Be careful not to put your body on the “Discount Rack”.

Choosing a liposuction surgeon based on the lowest price might ultimately be the most
expensive choice, if the initial cosmetic results are so bad that
another surgeon must be paid to repair the work of the first liposuction surgeon. Among
the most common undesirable outcomes of liposuction are 1) incomplete
liposuction with very little evidence that liposuction was actually done, 2) excessive
liposuction producing an unnatural or disfigured appearance, 3)
irregular and uneven results with unsightly depressions in the skin, and 4) large scars
that reveal that the patient has had liposuction. Caveat emptor (Buyer beware).

Liposuction Techniques

There are many ways to do liposuction, for example liposuction can be accomplished
painlessly either totally by local anesthesia or with general anesthesia.
In the realm of liposuction, maximum speed and maximum volume of aspirate are not
criteria for excellence. Ultimately, excellence is measured in terms of
patient happiness which is a function of safety, patient comfort, finesse, and quality
of results. The important distinction between liposuction surgeons
who are board certified is the liposuction technique that they use. The surgeon’s
specialty is not as important as the surgeon’s technique, experience and
attitude toward safety. Read More
