SmartlipoTM laser liposuction and tumescent liposuction are great standalone procedures that produce excellent results for thousands of patients each year.

Due to their versatility, these procedures are used to treat a wide range of areas, including small or sensitive areas like the knees, “bra roll”, and more.

However, liposuction is not just used for getting rid of those annoying trouble spots that can be so frustrating to deal with. Laser liposuction and tumescent liposuction are also used by many plastic surgeons in a variety of other treatments.

They are especially ideal for assisting in other treatments due to the gentleness and versatility of the procedures.

So what are some of the ways surgeons use these unique technologies? Here are two of the procedures that often involve liposuction as a part of the procedure.

Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia, a condition that involves the overdevelopment of male breasts, is highly embarrassing for men who suffer from it, and is more common than most people think. The only treatment for the problem currently is surgical intervention.

In addition to the excision of breast gland tissue, excess fat must also be removed. Smartlipo is the method of choice for many doctors for fat extraction. It allows for easy treatment of everything from mild gynecomastia to more extensive male breast reduction procedures.

Fat Transfer to the Face with Tumescent Liposuction

Some patients want a more long-lasting and natural solution to wrinkling and volume loss than dermal fillers can offer, and fat transfer fits that bill.

Fat is taken from an area of the body where it is plentiful (via tumescent liposuction), then purified and injected into the face. The area is overfilled somewhat as not all the fat will survive over the next few months.

Liposuction is always used for the harvest phase, as the method is gentle and effective at removing good-quality fat. Fat transfer can be used to rejuvenate the face, breasts, and buttocks via fat injections in all of the right places.
