Cavitation vs Liposuction

  • Today I’d like to tell you about a study by a group of researchers from Egypt that was forwarded by one of our listeners.
  • The title of the paper is: Vacuum-Cavitation Therapy Versus Liposuction on Lipoedema in Female. It was published in the Bulletin of Faculty of Pharmacy at Cairo University in July 2013.
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of vacuum-cavitation therapy compared to liposuction for the treatment of lipedema.
  • The authors reported that they had seen one male patient with lipedema and cavitation was not useful for him.
