There are many different types of liposuction available in Minneapolis. At Shu Cosmetic Surgery in Ednia, MI, we offer many different liposuction procedures to meet the needs of the individual patient. Most patients seeking liposuction have been unable to eliminate stubborn fat despite maintaining their weight through diet and exercise.
While many cosmetic surgeons in Minneapolis offer one or two types of liposuction, Dr. Steven Shu offers all of the latest types of liposuction:
Laser Liposuction is one of the most requested liposuction procedures in the Minneapolis area. Made popular by a technique called Smartlipo™, laser liposuction is best used for skin tightening purposes and delicate areas such as the neck or upper arms. Dr. Shu may combine laser liposuction with other lipo procedures to achieve custom results.
Vaser Liposuction is a type of ultrasonic liposuction that is used to target specific problem areas with a high degree of precision. Vaser lipo is ideal for treating larger areas of the body such as the stomach and midsection.
Dr. Shu is one of the most sought after cosmetic doctors in Minneapolis for fat transfer procedures. Patients who have Vaser Lipo can often have this fat purified and used in fat transfer procedures like natural breast augmentation or Brazilian butt lift.
AquaShape Liposuction is a gentle but effective lipo technique. This is also called water lipo, Body Jet lipo, or H20 lipo. AquaShape Lipo is different from regular liposuction and offers the fastest healing time of all of the mentioned procedures.
AquaShape lipo uses water pulsation as a fat cell removal system. It allows for patients to have their fat cells displaced and removed without excessive bruising and swelling.
Water lipo is the preferred method of liposuction in Minneapolis for fat transfer procedures.
Hi-Def Liposculpture is a technique that delivers sculpted results by removing fat that has accumulated around the muscles. Hi-def liposuction is well suited for men and women who want an athletic look.
