Liposuction is a popular and effective esthetic procedure employed for the treatment of localized deposits of adipose in patients without generalized obesity. Liposuction was introduced by Illouz and has been used for 30 years. Currently, it is the most widely used surgical esthetic procedure across the globe. Liposuction requires great degree of sophistication, as it is an integral part of many body contouring and shaping excisional operations being carried out. It is a minimally invasive surgery, wherein suction-generating source is connected to cannula, which is used for strategic placement of small incisions and removal of undesired fat volume from the subcutaneous fat area. Small incisions are scattered and the saline containing epinephrine and xylocaine in dilute amounts is used to infuse the desired adipose layers until turgid. Liposuction equipment helps patients to improve body contour and maintain harmonious balance of physique.
Liposuction equipment available today includes various technologies such as ultrasound-assisted lipectomy, laser-assisted, suction-assisted lipectomy, power-assisted lipectomy, radiofrequency-assisted lipectomy. Selection of technology is influenced by preference of surgeon and characteristics of a patient. Several technological improvements have led to development of probes for delivering preliminary energies in order to target only the unwanted adipose tissue and/or to provoke retraction of skin. These developments have brought about improvement in the results and increased ease of fat evacuation.

Use of high powdered water infusions in traditional liposuction is difficult to manage and often leads to excess fluid. Hence, thermal energy is used for lysis of fat and subcutaneous tightened tissues by radiofrequency equipment such as BodyTite (InVasix) and laser equipment such as SmartLipo (Cynosure). Modified drill facilitating traditional liposuction is also provided by Microaire. The gentlest liposuction (with rare bleeding) occurs through use of ultrasound assisted liposuction equipment such as LySonix and VASER offered by Mentor Corporation, and Sound Surgical Technologies.
Key players in the global liposuction equipment market are Erchonia, Mentor Corporation, Sound Surgical Technologies, Invasix Aesthetic Solutions, Alma Lasers, Bruker Corporation, Cutera, Cynosure, Inc., Ambicare Clinics, Genesis Biosystems, AMD Global Telemedicine, and Sciton, Inc., among others.
