• Liposuction alone is most successful in people with good skin tone who have isolated fatty deposits. It is not a treatment for obesity.
  • However, combined with tissue excisional procedures such as abdominoplasty, liposuction can improve deformities with good results.

  • Liposuction has potential to be used inappropriately by non Board Certified Plastic Surgeons in patients who want to minimize scars and avoid excisional body contouring surgery.
  • There are several different methods surgeons may use when performing liposuction, including suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL), ultrasound-assisted lipectomy (UAL), power-assisted lipectomy (PAL), and laser-assisted lipectomy (e.g. Smart lipo).
  • Each technique has its appropriate application and may yield good results when used by a well trained Plastic Surgeon. Dr. Wigod prefers using traditional liposuction (SAL) because it gives him the most precision.
