The Four New Trends in Liposuction!

Posted on

Liposuction isn’t a new way to reshape your body, but there are many new ways of doing it. Laser Lipo, Breast Liposuction, Ultrasonic Lipo, Lipoglaze are the four latest trend in cosmetic surgery used to sculpt the body. In the 1990s is when ultrasound started aiding doctors in liposuction, and more advanced methods were used. During liposuction, fat is sucked out through a hollow tube, allowing for the individual to lose fat and pounds, and many inches. It is more common in the abdomen, breasts, thighs and arms than other parts of the body.

New trends in liposuction

Laser Lipo:

The first trend in liposuction as of late is laser lipo. Laser and lipo have collided to create what is often known as “lunchtime lipo” because of how quickly it can be done. Because it is done with a laser, it is mostly painless and completed in approximately an hour or so. The results are closely matched to other forms of liposuction and can target any area of the body. The laser not only removes the fat stored there, but also helps to tighten the skin. Some reasons people are going for laser liposuction is because it is simple and fast, very little risks and recovery time, not much pain, discreet and tends to be more affordable than other types of body shaping or liposuction.

Breast Liposuction:

Another popular trend right now for liposuction is getting it in the breasts. Many women and men are choosing to do this as an alternative to getting a breast reduction. It is less money and less painful, making for a much shorter recovery time. Like with any type of liposuction, it allows the individual to have fat removed and tighten the skin. After completing it, some do choose to get a breast lift, while others don’t. There is also no scarring like there would be with breast reduction.

Ultrasonic Liposuction:

Ulrasonic liposuction is another form of liposuction, which uses high frequency sound waves to remove the fat cells and decrease the amount of fat. However it is not as popular as some of the other lipo trends because some individuals have experienced a longer recovery time following this type of liposuction.


Finally there is lipoglaze which is allowing supermodels and other women get the “thigh gap.” A thigh gap is where the legs don’t touch above the knee, showing very thin legs. Many of the thinner models have this naturally, but others are doing it cosmetically. The best procedure to get it done is with a type of liposuction called lipoglaze. Previously, lipoglaze was done to reduce the fat in the lower stomach, but now is being done on the inner thighs. It gets rid of excess fat in this region to allow women their much wanted thigh gap.

Liposuction has definitely come a long way since the 1980s. Newer technology, like lasers and ultrasonic technology is attempting to make it more affordable, safe and as painless as possible.
