I would like to find out what are the main types of liposuction available in Singapore?

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)

Liposuction is a procedure that has many different variables that surgeons can choose from. There are differences in the tools used as well as differences in technique.

For the tools used, the suction can be just from a syringe or it can be from a suction machine. A machine can definitely provide more suction than a syringe. The cannulas come in a variety of shapes and sizes as well as specialised tips.

There are special machines that help break down the fat in different ways – powered liposuction vibrates the cannula, bodyjet uses a jet a water to loosen the fat, VASER uses ultrasound energy to emulsify the fat prior to suction, lasers can also be used prior to suction but this is not common in Singapore.

Techniques also vary from surgeon to surgeon. Every surgeon’s technique will be different from another’s. I use a technique called SAFELipo. In this technique special cannulas are used to loosen the fat before suction, as well as after, to reduce the risk of contour irregularities.

I find this technique is efficient and gives superior results compared to traditional techniques. Techniques using energy to break down the fat, such as VASER or laser, have a small risk of burn injury to the skin. I would prefer not to take that risk.
