Different Types of Liposuction

Understanding the different types of liposuction technologies and methods available in the world


A form of ultrasonic assisted liposuction, it eliminates unwanted fat by using VASER technology to selective fat tissues without causing any damages to the surrounding tissues. Fat grafting is performed for those who opt to use the fat removed to further enhance their breasts, face or buttock.


A laser-assisted liposuction that breaks down stubborn fat cells into liquified fat which are then removed through suction. Suitable for delicate areas such as a the armpit, face and neck. The laser energy stimulates collagen production in the skin resulting in skin firming.

VASER Hi-Def Lipo

VASER Hi-Def Lipo begins where standard liposuction leaves. It involves removing fat from areas such as abdomen, flanks and male chests, while strategically leaving a thin fat layer of fat over underlying muscles to create a more athletic look.

Tumescent Liposuction

The most commonly performed form of surgical fat removal procedure around the world. It is less painful than traditional liposuction and has a quicker recovery time. It is performed as an outpatient and does not require general anaesthesia.

historical timeline
of liposuction

The evolution of liposuction, the world’s most popular surgical body sculpting procedure, from 1921 to date


Body Contouring

Charles Dujarier, a French surgeon, had the idea to create a body sculpting procedure by removing fat. Unfortunately, his idea was dismissed when one of his patients developed gangrene post-op.


Blunt Tunnelling

It was decades later when the lipo concept was revisited. After many failed attempts, Dr Arpad and Giorgio Fischer invented cannulas (blunt, hollow surgical tools) for the blunt tunnelling lipo technique.


Illouz Method

Due to many lipo cases that resulted in blood loss and nerve damage, Dr Yves-Gerard Illouz designed a technique that uses a blunt-tipped cannula which has a better and safer procedure outcome.


Tumescent Lipo

A dermatologic surgeon, Dr Jeffrey A. Klein, invented tumescent liposuction. It utilises tiny microcannulas that reduces risks of irregularities which are associated with larger cannulas.

Early 2000s


Dr Alfredo Hoyos introduced VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) liposuction. It utilises ultrasound technology to break down unwanted fat tissues gently.


VASER Lipo in Singapore

Dr Ivan Puah is one of the 3 doctors to first introduce it in Singapore in 2008. Dr. Ivan Puah is a VASER Certified Physician and an accredited liposuction doctor by the Ministry of Health, Singapore.

Buttock Fat Grafting
(Brazilian Butt Lift)

Upon doing a liposuction procedure to remove fat deposit from an unwanted area such as the stomach or thighs, the fat is then transferred and redistributed into the gluteus-maximus area, giving the buttocks, a Brazilian butt lift.


Facial Fat Grafting
(ADR-C Facial Enhancement)

Fat will be removed from predetermined body areas via syringe liposculpture. Next, the fat tissues removed are cleansed and re-injected into the facial lines and hollowed depressions using micro-cannulas. Procedure is about an hour.


Breast Fat Grafting
(ADR-C Breast Enhancement)

Breast fat grafting is an alternative to breast implants for those seeking to increase their breasts' volume more naturally. This procedure also helps achieve better breast symmetry and improves or corrects breast shape in women.



Finding the right doctor with an aesthetic sense is essential in achieving the desired outcome in terms of silhouette and true results. Like how an artist uses a tool to craft his masterpieces, Dr. Ivan Puah uses the same approach to body contouring to achieve an ideal result.

Believing that it is 70% art and 30% science, he makes use of technology and his years of experience and mastery to help his patients achieve a sculpted physique that is natural-looking. It takes meticulousness and great aesthetic sense to know how much fat needs to be removed and where it should be removed from.

How VASER Lipo Works


What is this unique combination of VASER lipo with MDC-SCULPT®️ technique?

VASER Lipo, our signature treatment since it was launched in Singapore in 2007,  is one of the most widely performed body contouring procedures because of its safety and results.  A form of ultrasonic-assisted liposuction, VASER provides a safer and more efficient tool for doctors to separate and emulsify only targeted fat tissues Liquefied fat is subsequently removed via a specially designed suction cannula.

The technological advantage of VASER, along with his proprietary approach known as MDC-Sculpt® Lipo technique, allows Dr. Ivan Puah to perform a more thorough fat removal and precision sculpting that constitutes an aesthetically pleasing and natural body shape for his patient. This unique treatment approach is developed through continuously honing and perfecting his skills over the last 15 years of his practice. This is our Vaser Lipo difference.

How does VASER Lipo compare with traditional liposuction?

There are many advantages of VASER Liposuction over the traditional liposuction method:

• A one-time procedure that targets only fat tissues.
• Bulk volume removal and body sculpting all in one.
• Smoother body contouring results with added benefits of skin tightening.
• Lesser downtime, bruising and pain.
• Faster recovery with minimal disruption to your daily activities.

How much fat can be removed? Can you treat multiple areas at once?

VASER Lipo allows multiple body areas to be treated at one time. However, the Ministry of Health Singapore has strict limitations on the total amount of fat that can be removed in one surgical session, which is a maximum of two litres.  

This requirement, which we strictly adhere to, is to protect your health and safety. Dr. Ivan Puah will assess your clinical condition, and advise on the estimated amount of fat that may be removed during your procedure.

Where is VASER Lipo performed?

Singapore is one of the world's strictest countries to regulate liposuction. All accredited liposuction doctors have to ensure that the procedure is performed in an MOH accredited operating theatre, with anesthesiologist, surgical trained nurses.

Our patients' safety means everything to us. We uphold our accreditation from the Ministry Of Health Singapore and cases are performed in our accredited Operating Theatre.

Our anesthesiologists offer comfortable twilight sedation (no GA) to minimise anesthesia's side effects, allowing the best possible care, safety, and monitoring for you during the procedure.

How soon will I see my results?

Patients who have had VASER Lipo by Dr Ivan Puah report that they can see results immediately after the procedure with the final result setting in around 3 to 6 months.

How much does VASER Lipo cost?

In Singapore, liposuction cost varies and is dependent on several factors, including the doctor’s experience and skills. A highly experienced doctor will have performed a significant number of procedures and these include in addressing complex ones and procedures of the corrective kind.

At Amaris B. Clinic, we plan our approach to suit your unique body shape and needs when it comes to body sculpting. Without an in-person consultation and clinical assessment, it is impossible to provide accurate costing. The total costs will vary depending on your needs, the complexity involved, extensiveness of the procedures and the number of body areas to be treated.  

Do you offer fat grafting to enhance the face or body?

Yes we do! In fact, facial fat grafting (ADR-C Facial Enhancement) and breast fat grafting (ADR-C Breast Enhancement) are very popular offerings at our practice since 2007.

Facial fat grafting is an excellent option for those who want to slow down the ageing process and maintain their youthful look. Breast fat grafting (ADR-C Breast Enhancement) is a natural, effective solution for women who are bothered with saggy, droopy breasts, especially postpartum mums and women who are facing the ageing process.

By using your own fat source removed during VASER Lipo, you can increase breast size, improve skin texture and enhance breast shape, while achieving a sculpted body shape all at once.

How much weight will I lose with VASER Lipo?

VASER Lipo has successfully transformed many body shapes, but this procedure is not meant for weight loss. For patients whose objectives are to lose weight and fat at the same time, we will map out a more holistic plan, combining Austrian developed Exercise Therapy with Vaser Lipo.  While you can expect localised fat to be efficiently removed with VASER Lipo, Amaris B. Exercise Therapy will assist you with weight management.  

It is a unique system, developed and patented by an Austrian sports scientist, and is scientifically proven to  improve lymphatic drainage, promote metabolism, improve cell health and achieve weight loss in a more holistic and healthy manner.
