Types of Liposuction
Several liposuction techniques are available at DC Cosmetics, including:
- Laser liposuction: Laser-assisted liposuction is among our most recommended procedures, as it offers extra skin tightening beyond traditional laser. At DC Cosmetics, we offer Smartlipo laser by Cynosure. Laser liposuction does not require general anesthesia and is among the most popular and effective body sculpting procedures available.
- Tumescent liposuction: Tumescent liposuction involves injecting a solution of local anesthetic and epinephrine into the area before fat extraction. The solution swells the area, allowing for greater control in removing more substantial quantities of fat.
- Power-assisted liposuction: Power-assisted liposuction (MicroAire) are also available at DC Cosmetics. These systems are appropriate for higher fat volume extraction, or if the harvested fat cells are to be processed and then transferred to the breasts or buttocks to increase natural volume.
