Who Invented Liposuction?

By November 23, 2013

Follow me on:

liposuctionFour doctors get the credit for founding and advancing the medical procedure know as liposuction. Doctor Giorgio Fischer, a gynecologist from Rome, Italy, invented the liposuction procedure in 1974. Doctor Illouz, a French plastic surgeon, made the first purely cosmetic use of the procedure four years later. Dermatologists, Doctor Jeffrey Klein and Doctor Patrick Lillis invented the tumescent technique of liposuction in 1985.

I wonder if they consider lipodissolve a viable choice as well. it is a simple injection that dissolves the fat.

just 1985. I’d say there are many improvements since then. The good thought is someone invented this to relieve people of their weight problems. Bravo !

It’s always interesting to note that the practice itself was developed recently, but now it’s one of the most popular procedures for plastic surgery. I don’t believe it will ever lose gusto unless a similar procedure that’s more efficient gets invented.

Liposuction surgery can be carried out on individuals of all ages, but the best results are noticed in liposuction patients who have skin that has not lost its elasticity

thirty minutes of nonstop walking, Twenty minutes of nonstop riding a bicycle, 15 minutes on a treadmill machine, or 10 minutes on an elliptical trainer every day.
For these reasons and more, do yourself a favor, and drink organic wheatgrass powder.
