When fat pockets don’t respond to diet and exercise, surgical intervention may be the only option. Liposuction is the leading surgery for reducing fat, although noninvasive options like Liposonix and CoolSculpting are also available. But, with all the buzzwords surrounding liposuction, it can be confusing determining which type is best for you.
“The biggest misconception is that there are all these new technologies out there that have somehow changed liposuction,” explains Miami plastic surgeon Constantino Mendieta, MD. “But the truth is, the basic technology, whether you are getting ultrasound-assisted, power-assisted, VASER, laser or anything in between, still involved traditional liposuction in some way. The best results are usually garnered from a mix of a few that are individualized for a person’s specific concerns, goals and skin quality.”
