Liposuction Techniques

There are many different types of liposuction techniques and technologies available in today’s market. However, it is very important to remember that only a few of these techniques and technologies are medically proven to give enhanced results. Many companies come out advertising new technologies that seem too good to be true…well, that’s because they usually are.

At Ciao Bella Medical Spa we utilize the Tumescent Technique that can be performed by utilizing different technologies. The technology used depends on each individual’s fat consistency. For this same reason, it is normal for the surgeon to use different technologies on one individual patient. It is important to know that the type of liposuction performed on each patient is what the doctor finds best suitable for each individual.

Traditional Liposuction

Traditional liposuction is no longer or rarely performed today. Also referred to as the “Dry Technique,” this type of liposuction required general anesthesia. The dry technique derived its name from the fact that it did not use injections of local anesthesia into the fat before liposuction. As liposuction became more and more popular, the dry technique was abandoned because of the excessive blood loss it caused.

Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent liposuction (also referred to as “liposculpture”) permits liposuction totally by local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia. This technique is now considered the safest form of liposuction. The word tumescent means swollen and firm. The Tumescent Technique uses large volumes of a dilute solution of lidocaine, a local anesthetic, in combination with the vasoconstrictive drug epinephrine, which temporarily shrinks capillaries. Local anesthesia used in the Tumescent Technique for liposuction is so effective that patients no longer need intravenous sedatives, narcotic analgesics, nor general anesthesia. Over the years, numerous patients who previously had liposuction with general anesthesia have had second treatments with the Tumescent Technique. Virtually every one of these patients has found the Tumescent Technique to be less painful, to provide better results and to result in more rapid healing and recovery.

Laser Assisted Liposuction (SMARTLIPO)

There are many new technologies out there that promise extraordinary cosmetic results but when it comes to cellulite treatments it is important to remember that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. At Ciao Bella Medical Spa we understand that everyone is different and that a given treatment on one patient might not be optimal for another. For this same reason, our doctor carefully evaluates each patient’s condition so he can know and recommend the best cellulite treatment technology for the given condition.

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction

This technique utilizes Ultrasonic waves delivered through the cannula that liquefy the fat while traditional liposuction requires manual effort to pulverize adipose tissue. Ultrasonic waves actually target fat cells specifically, causing them to “implode” and liquefy for suction removal. Because fat cells alone are selected, blood and tissue loss is minimal.

High Definition Liposuction With Lipomatic

This is a new technology that accomplishes high definition sculpting. It utilizes a vibrating instrument that enables the surgeon to sculpt better than ever before.

Advantages of liposuction with Lipomatic:

  • Less trauma reducing bruising and swelling
  • Less painful
  • Excellent skin retraction
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Easier and less tiring for surgeon, which means a more precise and gentle outcome for the patient
  • Easier to sculpt difficult areas such as knees, calves, buttocks, with high precision
  • Shorter operative time

Dr. Edgardo Zavala was one of the first Physicians in the Nation to utilize High Definition Liposuction. He is the Medical Director and National trainer of Inspiring Physicians High Definition Liposuction Institute.
