We are proud to present the recently launched History of Liposuction Infographic.  Illustrating the evolution of liposuction through the decades and highlighting the most significant achievements improved.
“It’s quite interesting to see how a surgical procedure has made it’s way in the aesthetics and beauty industry. Perhaps, the most amazing fact is that surgeons 100 years ago were as fascinated in procedures that improve the body shape as we are today,” says board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani, founder of Aristocrat Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics.

Liposuction Through The Decades

The Infographic will take you to the roots of liposuction, back in 1920, when surgeons started performing procedures that resulted in extraction of fat from different body parts. Surgeons interest in this specific procedure experimented with different techniques. These experiments led to many surgical improvements which, throughout the decades, brought about the brand new surgical procedure known as liposuction. The modern liposuction era began in 1977 when liposuction pioneers Arpad and Giorgio Fisher developed a method for a fat tissue removal within the body, using an electric-powered rotating scalpel.  This achievement was later followed by an introduction of the wet liposuction technique by  pioneer Dr. Yves-Gerard Illouz in 1978. During the 1980s, plastic surgeons focused on acquiring extensive education in the field. For the first half of the decade, doctors visited various courses and seminars on the topic, and collaborated with other experienced plastic surgeons such as Dr. Illouz, all in order to expand their knowledge and perfect their skills for liposuction. In the beginning of the 1990s, liposuction underwent major developments. The first Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction technique was developed in Europe and became widely popular and used around the world. The Tumescent Liposuction was also introduced and, due to its popularity, the Tumescent Liposuction Council was formed. Today liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for body contouring.  The advancement of techniques and instruments for liposuction have made this procedure extremely safe and very easy to perform, at the same time achieving extremely satisfactory, long lasting results.
