“It is better to be beautiful than good, but it is better to be good than ugly”
-Oscar Wilde

In January 2001, a survey asking the American public whether ‘‘physical beauty’’ or ‘‘inner beauty’’ ‘‘counts more in the real world’’ revealed that over 1/3 of participants over the age of 18 said that they thought physical beauty ‘‘counts more’’. Nearly a quarter of women said they considered maintaining an attractive physical appearance ‘‘essential’’, and more than half of women said that they considered it at least ‘‘important’’.  It is no wonder that plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and cosmetic dentists have seen an explosion in the demand for beautification procedures. And I doubt anyone would argue that personal appearance and physical beauty are becoming increasingly important in American culture. As a consequence, plastic surgeons have seen a boom in many body procedures, including abdominoplasty, liposuction, brachioplasty, and thighplasty. The numbers don’’t lie. In fact, nearly 14.6 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures were performed in the United States in 2012, up 5 percent from 2011, according to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
Liposuction is a great tool for sculpting the body for both men and women. There are several different types of liposuction that you may have heard of including traditional liposuction, vaser or ultra sound liposuction, Smart Lipo, Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL), and Slim Lipo. They all do virtually the same thing, that is, to reduce unwanted fat deposits to sculpt a better figure. In skilled hands, traditional, vaser, and power assisted probably provide the most predictive results. These methods have an excellent safety profile and high satisfaction rate among plastic surgeons and patients.
