Types of Liposuction
- Tumescent liposuction
Tumescent Liposuction is the most widely used form of liposuction. In this procedure, the area that is being treated is injected with a mixture of sterile salt water to help remove fat an anesthetic (usually lidocaine) to relieve pain, and epinephrine to constrict the blood vessels to reduce bleeding. Small incisions are made in the skin, and then a small cannula (a small tube) is used to suction out the fats and fluids. This procedure results in is less blood loss and bruising than do other procedures.
- Super-wet technique
The super-wet technique requires the injection of a volume of dilute local anesthesia that is less than half the volume used for the tumescent technique. Surgical blood loss with the super-wet technique is greater than the tumescent technique but significantly less than the wet technique.
- Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) – VASER
This method uses ultrasonic vibrations to turn fat cells into liquid. We are excited to be the first to introduce the latest generation of VASER, a tool that allows us to offer Hi-Def Liposculpting to our patients
- Powered Liposuction
In the Powered Liposuction procedure, a vibrating cannula is used to remove tough fat areas. Powered liposuction usually causes less pain and swelling, as it allows Dr. Jugenburg to remove fat with great precision. This procedure is particularly effective on smaller areas like arms, knees and ankles.
- Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL)
This method uses laser energy to liquefy fat cells. It is associated with an increased risk of lipo burns, and because it melts fat, it is not suitable for fat transfer procedures such as a BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) or fat transfer to breasts.
- SAFE Lipo
SAFE is an acronym for Separation, Aspiration, Fat Equalization – the three stages of the SAFELipo technique. A variation on the Power Lipo technique, this procedure is quickly becoming the most popular liposuction technique because of its ability to reshape the body in a safe and effective manner.It is widely considered the best technique to provide a safe, natural-looking liposuction result without the tell-tale signs of surgery, such as lumpy skin.

Average Recovery Time of Toronto Liposuction Surgical Procedure
When your liposuction is completed, there will be swelling and bruising. You will have some discomfort, which can be controlled by the pain medication prescribed by Dr. Jugenburg. This pain should subside within a few days.
Depending on the area upon which you had the procedure, you may also be required to wear tight compression garments or elastic bandages for several weeks to help reduce swelling and to compress the skin to the new body contour.
On rare occasions, temporary drains will be placed beneath the skin to help remove any excess fluid or blood.
Swelling will be present, but it will begin to reduce in about 7 to 10 days. While the results of your liposuction procedure will be seen almost immediately, this swelling will distort the actual results. Swelling will continue to reduce, but there may be some remaining for 3-5 months before it is completely gone. Thus, final results will take several months to subside.

The above patient underwent liposuction of the abdomen and love handles. A total of 2150cc of fat was removed. She was able to achieve beautiful results because her excess fat was external, and underneath her core was thin. Patients who have fat predominantly inside their abdominal cavity (internal fat) would not be able to achieve this result. It is important that you understand the difference between internal and external fat.
