In brief: Destroy vs remove

Lipozap is a combination of procedures intended to destroy fat withou technically extracting it.
It combines a combination of radio frequency, heat and injections(mesotherapy) to destroy the fat. Your body must absorb and eli i ate the dead fat cells. Liposuction uses a metal cannula to vacuum out the fat. At the end of the procedure you can literally see the fat in a canister. Not true with lipoz.

In brief: Be Careful

Unfortunately for the “consumer”, there are many different terms used to describe the liposuction surgical procedures.
Many of these procedures are simply marketing techniques used by different practitioners. Also, unfortunately there is minimal regulation involved when it comes to who can perform these procedures and the terminology employed etc. Patients need to do their own due diligence.

In brief: Tested vs fad

Liposuction has been the standard for decades, .
Lipozap is likely a fading fad. My opinion of course. :).
