Ok, I made up this name. There is no such thing as “Ultrasonolaserliposuction with Power Boost”, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I saw it advertised somewhere.
I really just wanted to capture your attention. I have found that anything associated with the word laser, ultra or the like tends to attract attention. So why am I talking about this?
Because a cool device name doesn’t always translate into the right tool for the job.
Laser liposuction, Ultrasonic liposuction, Power Assisted liposuction and even good old regular liposuction are all excellent tools. They all remove fat well, but they all shrink up skin poorly, despite dubious claims. So I’m writing this today to remind you that choosing the right tool is not nearly as important as choosing the correct patient.
I saw a lovely woman recently who was treated by a non certified physician with “Laser Liposuction”. She is a post partum mother who had liposuction to help with her loose and saggy post pregnancy tummy. After liposuction, her abdomen is looser, more droopy, and far more irregular…. she will need a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck is what she needed in the first place.
So beware of the skilled marketing, the hypes and bold claims where the promises may exceed the science. Leave your consultations feeling educated, not sold. The details you hear should make intuitive sense to you, even if it is not what you had hoped to hear. The plastic surgeon who turns you away for the wrong surgery is probably your best ally.
The link below is an older blog about who is a good candidate for liposuction irrespective of the device. I hope it helps you to make the right choice.
