Watching liposuction procedures is scary! Violent jabbing! Any suggestions?

Traditional SAL can be a little violent. There are different devices that can be used to make it less violent( power assisted, laser assisted, ect). These different modalities can come with their own risks and problems, nothing is perfect.

Thank you for the query. Liposuction can be achieved by a variety of techniques like suction assisted liposuction, laser assisted liposuction, water assisted liposuction, radio frequency assisted liposuction, power assisted liposuction and others. Depending on these and the experience of the surgeon as well as whether fat transfer is needed or not, the technique varies and therefore you see different Surgeons using different techniques. What counts in the end is the final result without complications and if your surgeon can achieve this, then you need not be worried about the techniques used:)With best wishes,Dr Alexander+
Liposuction and violent jabbing
Thank you for your question.Liposuction certainly does appear violent when watching a video. It is when performed properly a procedure that requires finesse and control at all times to ensure proper removal of fat. How much force is required with the cannula will depend on a lot of factors such as the area of liposuction, any history of previous liposuction or surgery, types of liposuction cannula, whether ultrasound or power assisted liposuction is used, and surgeon preference for time needed for liposuction. With fat transfer one typically tries to treat the cells with care on removal but the affects of "rough" harvest have not been conclusively studied.Best Dr. L
