- Hips and buttocks

- Standard lipoplasty or tumescent or super-wet liposuction technique requires an infusion of saline solution with adrenaline and anesthetic prior to removal of excess fat with small canulas.
- Ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty uses ultrasonic energy to liquefy fat. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction requires the use of tumescent solution prior to lipolysis, and standard liposuction to aspirate the liquefied fat.
- Laser-assisted lipoplasty, this laser technology produces a burst of energy as it enters the fatty tissue that liquefies the fat. Laser-assisted liposuction requires the use of tumescent solution prior to lipolysis, and standard liposuction to aspirate the liquefied fat.
