Abstract Although suction-assisted liposuction under tumescent anesthesia remains the traditional method for body sculpting, newer technologies promise to increase efficiency, decrease surgeon fatigue, and minimize complication. Power-, ultrasound-, and laser-assisted devices are ideal in large volume cases and in areas of fibrous tissues as an adjunct to traditional liposuction. Although skepticism remains chemical lipolysis, more commonly termed mesotherapy or lipodissolve may be an alternative to surgical treatment of localized fat. This article reviews the recent advancements in the field of liposuction and the current literature which support their use.
