Types Of Liposuction & Benefits of Lipo!

POSTED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 04, 2017 AT 3:31 PM  by Dr. Roger Bassin

Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery is consistently at the forefront of liposuction advancements. Thanks to technological innovations, there are now revolutionary forms of liposuction available to achieve substantial body contouring results with less downtime than liposuction procedures of the past. Techniques like Aqualipo®, SmartLipo™, and SculpSure™ can remove stubborn fat with precision and sculpt the body using different methods. Below is an overview of the liposuction options offered at our Florida plastic surgery offices!


Aqualipo® is a revolutionary water-jet liposuction technique that uses concentrated streams of water to gently flush excess fat cells from the body. Aqualipo® utilizes a local anesthetic, as opposed to general anesthesia. Excess fat is extracted from the body using a tiny cannula and water jet lipo. These minimally invasive techniques result in less bruising and swelling than traditional liposuction. Aqualipo® can target the neck, arms, breasts, midsection, flanks, thighs, and legs.


SmartLipo™ laser liposuction is a minimally invasive lipo option that can remove stubborn fat and tighten skin in one procedure. The SmartLipo™ cannula is inserted beneath the skin and sends laser energy to underlying fat cells, effectively liquefying them. These fat cells are then extracted from the treatment area. Heat from the SmartLipo™ laser also stimulates the production of subsurface collagen fibers, leading to improvements in skin structure and firmness. SmartLipo™ patients require a local anesthetic and can treat the abdomen, flanks, breasts, arms, thighs, and legs.


SculpSure™ non-surgical liposuction can sculpt the body without extensive downtime or recovery. SculpSure™  is designed to treat the arms, stomach, flanks, back, and legs. SculpSure™ uses up to 4 applicators that are placed above the treatment area(s). Hyperthermic laser energy is delivered to areas of stubborn fat cells, loosening them from surrounding tissues. These fat cells are then naturally processed and removed from your body. SculpSure™ treatment can be completed in just 25 minutes and can achieve long-lasting body contouring results.
