Recent Liposuction Technology Advances

Liposuction Technology Advances | Plano & Dallas, TX


The most important developments in Liposuction, since its introduction in Italy in the 1970’s were the development of Tumescent liposuction, the addition of Ultrasound technology (VASER), and laser technology (SMARTLIPO) to the procedure, which help destroy permanently fat cells and release liquid fat that is stored in the cells for easy suctioning.

VASER is a 3rd generation ultrasound assisted liposuculpture system which use sound waves to break the fat cells first and then remove liquid fat that is released from the cells,while sculpting the body. Laser Liposuction with SMARTLIPO has been another very important recent development, which also destroys fat cells permanently and releases liquid fat for gentle suctioning.

The newest and most powerful SMARTLIPO technology, which came to the market in early 2008 and is available at HORIZON Aesthetics, Vein and Laser center, is called the SMARTLIPO MPX (MPX stands for “Multiplex”). It is the first Liposculpture laser which can generate and transmit two different laser wave lengths simultaneously for increased effectiveness.

With these technologies we remove excess areas of fatty tissue from just about any area of the body including cheeks, jowls and neck, chest and breast area, upper arms, back, waist, hips, buttocks, inner and outer thighs and knees, calves, and ankles. Liposuction may also be used to treat males with Gynecomastia (excess tissue or fat in the breast area). We have been using the most advanced VASER and SMARTLIPO technologies together in our center to enhance our patients’ benefit.
