Some people have problems related to excessive fat deposits in specific areas of the body, including the hips, abdomen and buttocks. This unwanted fat under the skin can be removed by means of a vacuum suction cannula, using a surgical procedure called liposuction.
Power assisted liposuction utilizes a surgical device with a liposuction cannula that oscillates in quick micro-movements back and forth. The device has proven to be especially gentle to fatty tissues with higher percentage of ligament, e.g. on buttocks or back. This kind of liposuction is used for repeated intervention in tissue remodeling; it can smooth the final irregularities in the sucked area and in the border areas between sucked and unsucked parts of the body. Vacuson LP 60, the advanced and most often used equipment, consists of a vibration cannula, infiltration and suction device. Presently, the tumescent technique using a vibration cannula is considered the gentlest and the most efficient method, i.e. tumescent liposuction together with power-assisted liposuction.
