Before & After


What is Liposuction?

Liposuction or lipo deals with the removal of undesired and excess fat on the body. At WONJIN we have a variety of treatment including laser, ultrasound, as well as traditional methods of liposuction. Lipo is used in conjunction with an abdominoplasty for effective results. Liposuction can get you the body you want in a short period of time. Liposuction at WONJIN is performed with only the latest equipment and surgical techniques to get you the taut, slim body you want.

Appropriate for those who

  1. A lot of excess fat on arms, abdomen, legs etc
  2. Excessive fat on specific part of body
  3. Partial fat that is not burned off with diet
  4. Dissatisfied body figure

The principle of suction of fat

Principle of liposuction

Surgeons make tunnels in layer of fat to suck fat cells with cannula. In this surgery, surgeons pull out fat cells out of body. After this procedure, the surgical area rarely reverts back to the original state.

Types of liposuction

SAL, Suction-assisted liposuction

This is a delicate way to extract fat cells with a vacuum pump and it causes high pressure to get rid of fat through a cannula. This way is ideal for small spots like face, arm, thigh, etc.

PAL, Power-assisted liposuction

Same principle as SAL but cannula is operated by motor to make easier to separate the layer of fat. This gets rid of fat quickly and is ideal for parts including the abdomen and love handles.

Multi liposuction

WONJIN has many different varieties of liposuction that include using ultrasonic, high frequency waves, water, lasers, etc.

Multi Lipoplasty

accusculpt-01

Accusculpt Liposuction

Accusculpt is a procedure that accurately sculpting the adipose-tissue on thin and saggy areas. Unlike the general liposuction, it uses micro cannula to inject 1444nm wavelength and melts the fat. It is beneficial on those areas like cheek and jaw line, where it is hard to perform liposuction. There is also a lifting effect due to collagen production.

Applicable Areas

  •  Cheek fat removal
  •  Slim V-line face
  •  Facial asymmetry correction
  •  Double chin
  •  Wrinkle
  •  Buccal fat
  •  Reduce the size of jaw, cheekbone

bodytite-01

Body Tite Liposuction

This procedure is comparatively safe that allows fat melting, liposuction, skin elasticity, cellulite reduction through single procedure by using the high frequency liposuction machine which operates through internal and external electrode. It is safe because temperature, resistance, depth, and power can be controlled.

Minimal scar through micro high frequency
Less pain with local anesthesia

Able to achieve equal result by adjusting the depth by controlling the distance with internal and external electrode (5-25mm) Fast recovery through the electric surgical fat coagulation causing less traumatic liposuction of fat tissue Transfer correct heat in the subcutaneous layer by measuring the distance between the internal and the external electrode It assists real-time monitoring of temperature, resistance, strength, and has good stability with thermal protection.

ultra-z-01

Ultra-Z Liposuction

It is a method using ultrasonic energy to selectively melt only adipocytes efficiently without damaging the blood vessels, nerves, and other tissues. A solid fat turns into liquid state as if gravel stone was beaten into sand. When the liquefied fat comes out of the cell, it gets absorbed into our body and get excreted, so it is possible to achieve smooth body line without additional liposuction procedure.

Ultra-Z Areas

  •  Abdomen, Love handle
  •  Arm
  •  Back

Minimal bruising, scar, and bleeding through micro cannula
Fast procedure and recovery time
Less pain with local anesthesia

What is cavitation effect caused by ultrasonic?
Just like the effect of crushing the gravel into the sand, it destroys the fat tissue by the principle of shooting the ultrasonic in the subcutaneous
tissue to aim the fat cells which are unable to absorb the energy and forms fine bubble pop and expands until it explodes.

aconia-01

Erchonia Laser Liposuction

sl_lazer

SL Laser (SMARTLIPO) Fat Sculpting

It is a method that destroys the fat cells by making a hole in the cell membrane of fat cells by direct injection of optical fiber laser on subcutaneous layer. Fat from the cell gets absorbed in the body and discharged from the body, so it does not require additional liposuction and it is called ‘fat sculpting’. Also, it takes about one month for the decomposed fat to be absorbed. It is a suitable surgery for those who are afraid but would like to dissolve fat on parts of area and lifting at the same time.

Arm Liposuction

Inner part of arm is the area of least movement where we use muscle rarely, thus it is one of the hardest area to lose fats. Liposuction on this area needs extra careful skill because the nerves and blood vessels are situated close to thin skin. Removing fat deposits evenly from both shoulder and arm is the most important part of Arm Liposuction. The key point is to remove enough fats on the inner part of arm to achieve straight and smooth line.

Fat accumulation particularly on arm is likely to be caused by the process of losing weight after a sudden weight gain. Fat deposits on arm can also be genetically inherited from a family member.

body_face

Face Liposuction

Face with excessive fat deposits may give you a heavy and boring impression. This phenomenon could occur distinctively to some people due to genetic reason but can be corrected and improved by facial liposuction. In case of excessive fat accumulation, regular liposuction and tightening can help the patient to regain his/her face line. In case of sagging skin due to aging, face lifting surgery may be needed in addition to the facial liposuction to improve sagging of lower face, jawline, and neckline caused by gravity.

Thus, facial liposuction not only tighten face, jawline, and neckline but also provides harmonization of overall facial impression as well as anti-aging effect.
If the patient lacks elasticity, lifting surgery in addition to the facial liposuction may help the patient to gain V-line face. If jaw muscle is over-developed, jaw botox will maximize the effect of facial liposuction.

Hip Liposuction

Tight hip without any sagging is considered as the most beautiful hip. As you get older, more fats are deposited on hip which worsen the sagging and ultimately there is no curve between the hip and thigh which makes your body line very unattractive.
