          It is always the surgeon and not the method that produces the result.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of liposuction procedures each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Laser assisted liposuction has no benefit over conventional liposuction.

For the most part liposuction of any type involves removal of unwanted material by negative pressure. Sometimes the fat is treated prior to removal by either ultrasound or by laser. I have used five different varieties of EM assisted liposuction and think it has no advantage over conventional liposuction.

Many of the newer liposuction treatments use heat energy to melt away fat. This is certainly an option in most cases. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles
