Liposuction vs. Liposculpture vs. Body Sculpting

Learn the difference between liposuction, liposculpture, and body sculpting in this Howcast video featuring plastic surgeon Robert J. Morin, M.D..


We're discussing liposuction and the different types of liposuction. Liposuction may possibly be one of the most confusing aspects of plastic surgery currently. There are so many different techniqueS, and so many different names for each of the techniques that it's gotten to the point where it's very hard to keep track of all the different techniques and the technology behind each of the techniques. Liposuction is basically the act of making a very small incision in the skin, inserting a cannula, injecting a fluid into the fatty tissue below the skin , that prevents bleeding, and then using another cannula to suck the fat, and remove the fat from that area. When liposuction started many years ago. It was very straightforward.

There was just a cannula connected to a suction tubing. It worked very well. However, it was a slow process because, uh it just took a long time to remove all the fat by that message Sometime later power assisted liposuction became popular. And, what power assisted liposuction is, is its liposuction that's performed on a handheld device that moves the cannula back and forth very quickly many times per second. This has increased the efficiency at which fat can be removed. And in my experience, and in my opinion. This is the best form of liposuction.

Many other forms of liposuction exist, certain forms involve lasers. There's liposuction that involves ultrasound, there's liposuction that involves water. The general concept is the same, you need to remove the fat, and again in my experience, and in my opinion, removing the fat by power assisted liposuction is the best way to remove the fat.
