what is the different between tumescent and ultrasonic liposuction anyway?
 
i've never had neither but saw the category and realize i have no idea :confused:

The main difference between tumescent and ultrasonic liposuction is the way they dissolve fat. Ultrasonic, as its name implies of course, uses high frequency sound waves to do the job. Some people say this is beneficial over tumescent because supposedly the sound waves rupture the fat cells so they can no longer hold fat in the future, hence harder to gain weight back in the area. But as far as I know this theory hasn't been proven yet so I wouldn't pay more for ultrasonic lipo just for that reason.

is there a big difference in price between the two? i had always just thought all liposuction was the same i didn't even know there were different kinds... dumb me :Freak:

Tumescent liposuction is a popular liposuction technique in which fluid is injected into the target area to create space between the muscles and fatty tissue. This causes the tissue to become swollen and firm (tumescent), loosening the fat cells, reducing bruising, and allowing the surgeon more room to perform the movements that loosen the fat cells before they are suctioned out of the body.


Ultrasonic liposuction is a procedure used by surgeons to remove fat from the body. Ultrasonic energy is converted into vibrations and heat, and then delivered through paddles and metal rods either into the body or over the skin. There are two types of ultrasonic liposuction, external and internal.

With internal ultrasonic liposuction, a special tumescent fluid is delivered into the fatty area by means of a hollow cannula. The cannula is similar to a large hollow needle, through which flow the ultrasonic vibrations, heat, and tumescent fluid. The ultrasonic energy breaks down the fat into oil, which is mixed with the tumescent fluid. The converted fat that has mixed with the tumescent fluid is sucked out through the cannula with the help of a suction vacuum.

External ultrasonic liposuction is a method of delivering the ultrasonic energy to fat without breaking or piercing the skin. The energy is delivered via metal paddles that are placed over the skin, with the vibrations breaking down the fat externally. The trouble with external ultrasonic liposuction is that most scientific research shows that it has no benefit whatsoever in the removal of fat. Because of these findings, external ultrasonic liposuction is rarely used these days.

i think the trend now is towards Tumescent

Tumescent liposuction refers to dilute anesthetic with epinephrine which are injected into the fat so that it can be suctioned out with only local anesthesia. Fat can be removed with various methods after that - laser, ultrasound, suction alone, or power-assisted suction. Ultrasound is just one of the methods of fat removal. External ultrasound can cause fat disruption also but is limited in what it can do. It is also still not FDA-approved in the US.

Tumescent liposuction remove fat tissues and loose skin of the body and Ultrasonic or Vaser liposuction advance procedure eliminate fat and fast recovery.
