The principle of Liposuction

Liposuction is done using Cannula to soak up fat cells through tunnel on fat layer. In this surgery, surgeons pull out fat cells out of body. After this procedure, the surgical area rarely reverts back to the original state.

  • Precise design Suction through cannula
  • Slit the Mongolian fold Thinned layer of fat

Types of liposuction

SAL, Suction-assisted liposuction

This is a delicate way to extract fat cells with a vacuum pump and it causes high pressure to get rid of fat through a cannula. This way is ideal for small spots like face, arm, thigh, etc.

PAL, Power-assisted liposuction

Same principle as SAL but cannula is operated by motor to make easier to separate the layer of fat. This gets rid of fat quickly and is ideal for parts including the abdomen and love handles.

Multi liposuction

WONJIN has many different varieties of liposuction that include using ultrasonic, high frequency waves, water, lasers, etc.


Multi Lipoplasty


SL Laser (SMARTLIPO) Fat Sculpting

It is a method that destroys the fat cells by making a hole in the cell membrane of fat cells by direct injection of optical fiber laser on subcutaneous layer. Fat from the cell gets absorbed in the body and discharged from the body, so it does not require additional liposuction and it is called ‘fat sculpting’. Also, it takes about one month for the decomposed fat to be absorbed. It is a suitable surgery for those who are afraid but would like to dissolve fat on parts of area and lifting at the same time.

Abdomen Liposuction
korean Liposuction type Abdomen and Waist

Abdomen Liposuction

Huge stomach usually makes you look fat. Abdomen obesity is caused by excessive fat deposition in upper and lower abdomen. Thus, it is very important to remove fat evenly during the procedure. Abdomen obesity is the most common area for liposuction for both men and women. It is the typical area to have liposuction because the result is very good compared to other areas of body.

If waist size is over 35.4 inch for Korean men and 33.5 inch for Korean women, it is considered as abdomen obesity. Excessive fat deposits on abdomen also increases the risk of other health issues, thus the consultation with the physician is strongly recommended.
Deep sleep anesthesia will be done for abdomen liposuction and since only small incision will be made for thin cannula for the suck out, you may go back to work on Monday if the surgery was done in the weekend.
