How Does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction is an advanced service typically offered by higher end cosmetic centers and beauty schools, whereby a person may want to have excessive volumes of fat removed from parts of their body with minimal side-effects and pain. There are several services that fall into the category of contouring, all of which are provided by NIMA – one of the United States’ leading educational providers for all things aesthetic related.

Types of Liposuction

There are four individual types of treatment available when booking a service at the National Institute of Medical Aesthetics. Further information on each of these services can be found below.

UltraShape Liposuction

For decades now the medical industry has relied on ultrasound technologies to aid in pregnancies and even locating tissue damage, but only recently was the technology discovered to possess features that could breakdown fatty cells and allow the metabolism to remove them from the body. In most cases an individual will need to undergo at least 3 treatments to start to see results, but as there are minimal side effects involved and little to zero discomfort the service is becoming increasingly popular.


Offering the option to break fatty cells down in a different way, CoolSculpting could be considered one of the earliest forms of treatment available to the general public. By utilizing freezing temperatures and exposing parts of the body and dermal layers to the effects; it can be possible to break apart fat that has been stored within certain regions around the body. These regions include the thighs, stomach, back, and arms predominantly, but when left to a trained therapist, fat can be removed from almost anywhere.

VelaShape III 

The VelaShape III treatment is the third in its generation, and it works by focusing on particular parts of the body in specific. These areas include love handles, thighs, the back, and the buttocks. By using vibrational energy it can be possible to see results in as little as 6 weeks, although most people will enjoy a loss in fat at the 8 week mark, with one treatment per week.

Venus Legacy

For those that are after a temporary reduction in fat while they focus on their own weight loss goals – Venus Legacy can be the ideal solution. By far one of the quickest treatments available at the Aesthetic Surgery center; the process can be completed in the space of 30 minutes or less, whilst offering fairly rapid results. The treatment can reduce fat and cellulite for up to a few weeks at a time, allowing the recipient to enjoy a slimmer figure for special events, or when they are in a rush.
