Has Traditional Liposuction Become Outdated?

Traditional Liposuction, VASER liposuction, SmartLipo, CoolLipo. When it comes to fat removal and body contouring, it can be confusing choosing between which procedure is the most effective. Not only this, but are these newer forms of fat removal as safe as traditional liposuction?

Liposuction Gone Wrong | Liposuction NegligenceThe number one concern around these new methods of body contouring and fat removal, is that a number of high street aesthetic clinics are offering these services, though they may not be medically trained or qualified in any way. Clients are lured into to these treatments by the small price tag attached, without questioning why the treatments cost so much less than traditional cosmetic surgery clinics.

With the vast majority of patients, fat removal procedures can be rewarding, achieving the desired result, however for others, negligent liposuction can lead to bodily harm and ongoing complications.


What is the difference between each of these procedures?

Each of these liposuction techniques still involve the invasive part of fat removal, where a cannula is inserted beneath the skin to remove the fat. It is the treatment of the fat before this stage that differentiates the techniques.

Because each of these procedures involve some element of physically removing fat from the body, it is important to remember that they are classed as surgical procedures. Therefore, it is extremely important that you do your research to find a qualified clinician with many years experience specific to liposuction, to perform the procedure, rather than a someone who simply claims to be a “liposuction expert”; who in actual fact holds no accreditations for that title. This will not only ensure the procedure is performed as safely as possible, but is also likely to give you a much better overall outcome.Liposuction Claims | Liposuction Compensation

If you are considering liposuction, try not to be swayed by clever marketing and the use of terms such as “revolutionary” or “innovative”. Instead, do your research into the liposuction procedure you are interested in and find out if it works better than the traditional liposuction methods that are already available, and whether or not it is safer.

If you have fallen victim to negligent liposuction, you may be eligible to make a claim for cosmetic surgery compensation.
