Liposhaving

A technique used to layer off subcutaneous fat, which may be better than liposuction for facial procedures.
Pros Removal of excess fat without dimpling or asymmetry, less traumatic as it requires less suction pressure than the potentially bruising back-and-forth motion of liposuction
Cons Risk of cutting muscle and soft tissue
