The most common kind of liposculpture is creating toned abdominal muscles. Techniques used during this kind of procedures are power-assisted liposculpture (PAL, VibroLipo), ultrasound-assisted liposculpture (UAL, VaserLipo) and Laser-assisted liposculpture (LAL, SmartLipo). The kind of procedure depends on the way the fat is destroyed. During VibroLipo it is crashed using vibrating movements, in VaserLipo the surgeon melts it with the ultrasonic energy and SmartLipo is a laser-based breaking of fat cells. The method is adjusted to individual circumstances, such as age, health and weight.
