The traditional liposuction is the common but oldest technique. A cannula is used to remove the body fat from the body. The cannula is a device which moves the fats in your body by using force. Afterward the fats will be pulled out by the machine. Because of using force, the swelling and bruising will be more than laser. That means it will more painful.
On the other hand, the laser liposuction will send a heat right under the skin to break the fat cells. since the heat will be send, the skin will likely to get stretched and tightened so that you will have less sagging on your requested areas after all those fats removed and also it is less painful comparing to the other liposuction techniques. You will also keep losing the fats from your body with the help of the heat of laser for 6 months which means you will keep more tightened body even after 6 months.
