In brief: Tumescent Lipo

A fluid containing aesthetic and other medicines are injected into the tissues, causing the fat to swell.
, so that it can be more easily sculpted to create the desired contours. Because the fluid reduces blood flow to the area which is being liposuctioned, bleeding and bruising are reduced. Patients experience a more comfortable recovery in the 18-24 hours following the procedure.

In brief: Find the right doc

There is no single lipo technique superior to others but find a surgeon experienced in the procedure who can asses your concerns and explain why a certain technique may be more advantageous for you.
Most experienced liposuction surgeons use at least three techniques. Vaser lipo, laser assisted lipo lysis , and power liposuction sometimes alone or in combination. In some cases simple cannula is ok
