BACKGROUND RESEARCH FACTS
• Liposuction is a surgical procedure meant to remove fat deposits and shape the body. Fat is
removed from under the skin with the use of a hollow tube-like vacuum instrument or by using an
ultrasonic probe that breaks that fat up into small pieces and sucks it up.
• Liposuction is a procedure for shaping the body and is not recommended for weight loss.
• Liposuction can be performed on the abdomen, hips, thighs, calves, arms, buttocks, back, neck, or
face. It is possible to have multiple areas done in one day.
• When there is excessive skin because of pregnancy or weight loss, liposuction is ineffective and
surgical options are recommended.
• Fat cells are more sensitive to temperature than other cells.
• Radiofrequency works by targeting energy at fat cells and destroying them but it also can be used
to tighten the skin in the same area. Usually several treatments are needed but the advantage of
quick results and little downtime are appealing to clients. It can be performed on all parts of the
body but the most common sites are chin, arms, abdomen and knees.
• Cryolipolysis freezes lipid in the fat cells and the cells dissolve slowly. The results are slowly
achieved as fat layers are reduced and it is limited to larger areas of the body like the abdomen
• Ultrasound waves can be used to breakdown fat pockets by mechanical destruction rather than
• The non-invasive alternatives have varied results and require multiple treatments. Liposuction has
surgical risks but these external options are available for patients who cannot have liposuction or
in conjunction with liposuction.
• The American Society of Plastic Surgeons believes that further testing of the mixtures created for
Mesotherapy is needed so it is not discussed as an alternative option.
