If you’ve been eager to get rid of those love handles or lose the stubborn fat around your hips and thighs, liposuction may be the answer. Today’s innovative liposuction methods include SmartLipo and SlimLipo, a set of procedures that promise instant results with minimal downtime and very little pain.

A few excess pounds around the thighs, stomach or lower back can take its toll on your appearance, and these areas can become especially resistant to diet and exercise. Liposculpture offers one option for getting rid of body fat in these problem areas, and the Vaser liposculpture technique is one of the latest innovative procedures available. Vaser hi-def liposculpture is different from conventional liposuction because it uses ultrasound technology to contour and reshape the tissues after the body fat has been removed. The result is a chiseled and sculpted appearance, with a significant reduction in loose skin.

If you’ve decided to pursue liposuction to get rid of excess body fat, you’ll soon find that every surgeon uses a different technique. Liposuction continues to be one of the most effective ways to get rid of body fat permanently, but a surgeon may decide to use a combination of different techniques to achieve lasting results. Power Assisted Liposuction is one of several techniques used for permanent fat removal.

If you’ve been considering liposuction to get rid of a few ‘vanity pounds’ or streamline your figure, you may have been turned off by the amount of recovery time and scarring involved. That’s all beginning to change thanks to the advances in liposuction and laser-assisted lipo techniques where the procedure takes far less than usual, and leaves the patient with very few scars. The Smartlipo MPX machine has recently made its way into the U.S. market, and so far, is showing promising results.

If you want to get rid of a few pounds around your waist or thighs, liposuction may be your best option. Today’s advanced fat removal technologies make it very easy for surgeons to remove even small pockets of stubborn fatty tissue and create a leaner, more sculpted appearance.

Some of the latest innovations in liposuction involve the use of ultrasound technology, infrared laser and water jets which give the plastic surgeon more control during the procedure, and in some cases, produce better results. Custom Acoustic Liposuction was recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as an effective fat removal procedure, and uses low-frequency acoustic INFRASONIC vibrations. Here’s a close look at how this procedure works, and what the key benefits and drawbacks of Custom Acoustic Liposuction are:

If you’ve been looking for an alternative to conventional liposuction to lose weight, you may be a good candidate for ProLipo. ProLipo is an FDA-approved laser-assisted procedure that works by melting away unwanted fat and may also tighten the skin around the treatment area. The ProLipo procedure can be performed under local anesthesia and can get rid of unwanted body fat in the abdomen, hips, waist, thighs and buttocks. Here’s a close look at the benefits and drawbacks of the ProLipo procedure:

Zeltiq is one of the latest innovations in non-invasive fat reduction, and is designed to eliminate unwanted fatty tissue using a precisely-controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis™. The procedure has been available in Europe since 2005, and as of March 2010, is still awaiting FDA approval as a non-invasive fat reduction procedure.

If you want to get rid of excess fatty deposits on the face and body, traditional liposuction procedures may not be able to help you achieve the results you want. Less-invasive, targeted procedures using laser energy can help to target smaller areas of body fat that have become resistant to diet and exercise. The AccuSculpt system is one of the latest innovations in laser-assisted lipolysis, and can be administered to smaller areas of the face, as well as stubborn fatty deposits on the body.

The SmartLipo laser liposuction device received FDA approval in 2006, and has since helped thousands of people get rid of unwanted body fat with minimal pain. This innovative procedure works by melting the fat prior to removal from the body, making it easier for the surgeon to remove both large and small volumes of body fat without causing pain and trauma to the surrounding tissues.
