LipoSelection : Easier Liposuction
From ABC News Research Summary: Easier Liposuction
BACKGROUND: With an alternative to traditional liposuction called liposelection, the area of the body that is having fat sucked out is first flooded with a solution that contains epinephrine to reduce bleeding. An ultrasound probe is then inserted, and the liquefied fat is suctioned out.
APPLICATION: Liposelection can be performed on the legs, arms, abdomen, and chin -- virtually anywhere.
BENEFITS: According to Edmond Zingaro, M.D., unlike traditional liposuction, liposelection does not cause any harm to the other body structures. The procedure directs its attention specifically to fat, leaving the blood vessels, nerves and attachments from the skin to the muscles intact
