FDA-approved laser-assisted SmartLipo uses laser technology to liquefy fat with a thin fiber placed in small incisions in the skin for a slimmer look.
Lipedema treatment may include conservative modalities such as massage, compression, appropriate nutrition, exercise, and physical therapy.
With tumescent liposuction, unwanted fat is injected with a liquid to break it up to allow for easier removal with a power-assisted cannula, or tube.
VASER liposuction, a minimally invasive procedure, uses ultrasound technology to loosen fat cells to allow for easier removal with a small tube.
Water-assisted liposuction uses a jet of pressurized saline solution to displace fat and remove it through the use of a cannula, or steel tube.
