Liposuction was once a procedure intended only for the rich. This procedure demanded high prices among its patients. Mrore often than not the surgery was characterized by heavy scarying and massive blood loss.
The first known method for liposuction was developed by Dr. Yves-Gerard Illouz that involved injecting lidocane, a sterile fluid, to the area of the body particularly on the fatty tissue thereby dissolving it. The French doctor also removed the dissolved fat through surgery using cannula and high volume suction to completely remove the fat. This technique is one of the earliest forms of invasive liposuction.
This procedure gave way to the discovery of cannula as one of the most important tools for liposuction. However, while doctors consider the use of cannula as safe, they have faced other issues such as too much bleeding from the patients. Liposuction then was a very painful procedure. This resulted to surgeons putting the patients to sleep so that they would not feel a thing during the operation. However, a lot of problems were raised while using invasive. Some of the patients were able to acquire infection during and after the operation. The end results of some patients were substandard. In order to get a remedy for this, they usually have to undergo the same surgery but will have to pay more.
These issues raised against invasive surgery gave way for the development of a safer and more effective means to lose fat through surgery. The introduction of Smart Lipo revolutionized the way surgeons approach liposuction. Smart Lipo still uses the traditional cannula but narrower. It uses laser energy to dissolve fats from the body thereby making this procedure non-invasive. Recently, Smart Lipo is the safest and most effective means to get the body that most people dream of minus the complications and risks.
