Traditional Liposuction vs. Modern Liposuction

When it comes to the plethora of treatment options for fat sculpting, which do you choose? Traditional liposuction has been largely considered a smart, safe, and effective option, which is also cost-friendly. But are there options that may be better?

The quick answer is yes! Let’s explain the main differences between liposculpture and traditional liposuction, but first, let’s see what liposculpture is? Liposculpture uses similar principles to traditional lipo, in that fat cells are suctioned and permanently removed from targeted zones in the body. Nevertheless, this procedure uses more effective ways to get the job done.


In most cases traditional liposuction uses general anesthesia or IV sedation, which comes with many side effects, while liposculpture uses only local anesthesia.

Recovery Times

Due to the less invasive techniques used during liposculpture, recovery times are less. As an example, local anaesthesia is used, less bleeding occurs, and instruments, like laser lipo, offer more precise results, with less pain and trauma. For liposculpture patients, many can return to work within acouple of days, while traditional liposuction may take weeks for full recuperation to be completed.

Tools and Technologies

Traditional liposuction uses what’s now considered to be outdated tools or micro cannulas that may be too large and also increase the risk of scarring. On the other hand, liposculpture uses micro cannulas that measure roughly the size of a ball point pen tip, causing less surrounding tissue damage, as well as lower risks of scarring. Think of the former “traditional liposuction” like what we now regard as a bulky desktop computer – many of us would trade these in for lighter, more effective options, wouldn’t you agree?


Study after study reveals that liposculpture yields more precise results compared to traditional lipo surgery. Many patients, for example, report botched surgeries with traditional lipo methods.
