Question: Does liposuction remove adipocytes?
Answer: Liposuction can remove adipocytes. Adipocytes – another term for fat cells – are the cells that are mainly made up of adipose tissue and their main function is to store energy as fat. During a liposuction treatment, these fat cells can be emulsified and then removed from the body.
The most advanced form of liposuction is Vaser lipo, which utilises ultrasonic technology that vibrates at a low level to gently liquefy unwanted fat so that it can be removed from the body. Vaser liposuction incorporates Liposelection, which allows the treatment to be highly targeted to the area for fat removal – even very small areas such as the ankles – while leaving surrounding body tissues untouched. This substantially reduces the amount of swelling and bruising caused from liposuction and also means that recovery time after liposuction can be far quicker.
EF MEDISPA was one of the first clinics to bring Vaser lipo to the UK from the USA. This multi-award winning clinic is internationally recognised for its standards and service, most recently with the Best Clinic Group Award 2015. EF MEDISPA offers two types of Vaser liposuction – Vaser lipo for fat removal and Vaser High Def for advanced body sculpting. EF MEDISPA specialises in using Conscious Sedation, which is a safer sedation method compared to general anaesthetic. This can remove the side effects and risks associated with general anaesthetic, while also allowing patients to walk in, walk out of their liposuction treatment instead of requiring an overnight hospital stay.*
