Suction assisted lipectomy or liposuction is one of the most popular means of body contouring techniques in cosmetic surgeries. A number of important modifications to the standard suction assisted liposuction including UAL (ultrasound assisted liposuction), PAL (power assisted liposuction), VASER and laser assisted liposuction are available today.
Prior to liposuction, a pre operative marking is done with the patient in an erect position. In patients undergoing total body liposuction or contouring, marking can be done one day prior. Areas to be suctioned are marked with a circle.
Incisions are placed in hidden areas and are approximately 3mm to 4mm in length.
