What’s New In Liposuction?

Liposuction was first pioneered by French Surgeon, Dr. Charles Dujarier in the 1920’s. But it didn’t really become popular until 1982, when another French surgeon, Dr. Yves-Gerad Illouz devised a new method using suction-assisted liposculpture.

While the liposuction procedure has been refined over the last decade, suction-assisted liposculpture still remains my main choice for appropriately selected patients in my practice. It is particularly effective in removing fat from stubborn areas where traditional exercise and diet are ineffective.

Remarkably liposuction and liposculpture have enjoyed a long history with proven effectiveness. By using the modern specialized suction-assisted technique, it allows me to remove adequate volumes of fat. In addition, I am using newer smaller cannulas that can be used for delicate fat removal involved with designing customized sculpting for patients. Minimal discomfort and downtime contribute to liposculpture being a popular procedure this time of year as melting snow signals a return of warmer weather in Minnesota. Nationwide, liposuction remains in the Top 5 non-invasive procedures, with about 260,000 done each year.

Patient Reviews Natural Result

December 20th, 2019

Dr. Ralph Bashioum

Amy writes: BEST EVER!!! Dr. Bashioum is conservative enough to keep a natural look. I had 2 different surgeries that were seamless and botox several times that left a natural look. I trust whatever Dr. Bashioum recommends. He also clearly cares and is a skilled surgeon and artist.

Dr. Bashioum replies: Dear Amy, thank you for your very kind comments. It is always a pleasure to see you in the office. I’ve always strived to give patients a natural and aesthetically balanced appearance following surgery or a non-invasive procedure. After more than 30 years, I have found that while most patients, like you, enjoy a more natural look, others prefer something else. It was great to hear from you, thanks again for including your comments on our blog.
Warm regards,
Dr. Ralph Bashioum
