Types of Liposuction

Liposuction is a popular type of cosmetic surgery that removes fatty deposits from the body to achieve a slimmer body and a better overall body shape. In addition to people suffering from weight issues, it is used by many fit and healthy patients who simply struggle to get rid of stubborn fat from a specific problem area. The key liposuction treatments offered by. Jamie Moenster at Dermatology & Plastic Surgery of Arizona are as follows:


Traditional liposuction treatments are among the most frequently used cosmetic procedures on the planet. The procedures can be used to remove fatty deposits from an array of body parts. However, the most common areas are the stomach, thighs, buttocks, back, and arms.

The procedure usually takes one to three hours and is completed under local anesthesia. The process involves;

  • A small, inconspicuous incision is made near the area of the treatment.
  • A thin, hollow tube is inserted into the incision before it is moved back and forth to dislodge the fat.
  • The fat is subsequently removed from the body via a specialized surgical vacuum.

VASER Liposuction

Dermatology & Plastic Surgery of Arizona also offers VASER liposuction treatments that use precise technology to remove fat cells with less damage to blood cells or connective tissues. Like traditional liposuction, the VASER method uses a small incision and hollow tube to do this.

However, the extra precision of this FDA-approved procedure can provide a wide range of benefits, including but not limited to;

  • Reduce the treatment duration to just one session.
  • Cause fewer bruises and less swelling to accelerate your recovery.
  • Provide greater contouring opportunities to gain a better body image.
