It’s not really the machine that matters but the practitioner that matters. Someone who has been doing liposuction for a long time knows what to do for good results. Don’t get lured into doing something for the novelty of a new kind of liposuction treatment because technology is only as good as the person wielding it.
Q: How do I get the best results with liposuction?
What our experts say:
It’s baffling how many combinations of liposuction there are today: laser assisted, power assisted, wet technique, jet technique. It’s mind-boggling. You have to find an experienced doctor—a board-certified plastic surgeon. I like to use the tumescent technique, and in the right patient, Vaser or ultrasonic-assisted liposuction, especially for revisions and men with fat in the chest or love handles. The ultrasound helps to break up or dissolve the fat cells and then we can suction them away.
