Get To Know The Types Of Other Assisted Reproduction Techniques

Treating infertility resulting in successful pregnancy is not difficult anymore. The couples have the luxury to choose among several available options such as in vitro fertilization, fertility medication, and surrogacy, depending upon the severity of being infertile. The techniques that assist in such treatment procedures are called the Assisted Reproduction Techniques (ART).

While there are various known Assisted Reproduction Techniques available, the cause of infertility is the deciding factor for the type of technique that should be used during the treatment.

Causes of infertility among couples-
The causes of infertility are sometimes readily determined in some couples while in some others it remains a mystery. Obtaining a thorough physical examination is crucial in evaluating the couple and understanding the possible cause of infertility. Male factor testing and ovulatory function testing are often recommended to detect the cause of infertility and determine which assisted reproduction technique can be most suitable.

Assisted Reproduction Techniques-

  1. Artificial insemination: Artificial insemination also referred to as intrauterine insemination, is a process recommended to women who have normal and healthy fallopian tubes but are not able to conceive due to unknown reasons. This could happen due to mechanical difficulties during sexual intercourse. If the man is not able to achieve an erection or has structural issues of the male genitalia as a result of any trauma or surgery, it may result in failure in conception. The process of artificial insemination involves insertion of the male partner’s semen through the female cervix right before ovulation. This process can be performed during the normal menstrual cycle or in combination with ovulation induction.
  2. Intrauterine insemination (IUI): This is one of the primary assisted reproduction techniques, which involve the collection of the sperm, followed by preparation of the sperm in the laboratory, which is then inserted it into the uterus of the willing-to-be mother. Before the process takes place, doctors recommend undergoing tests of tubal patency. One can undergo a cycle of IUI with or without fertility drugs for the woman, depending on individual health.
  3. In Vitro Maturation (IVM): In this process, the immature eggs are collected from the ovary of a woman during the natural and unstimulated menstrual cycle. Then the eggs are fertilized in the laboratory, and after attaining sufficient maturity, multiple embryos are created for development.
  4. Vitrification: This is yet another method of assisted reproduction to fertilize the eggs, sperm, and embryos. In the earlier days, it was a risky procedure with an uncertain rate of survival. However, after the invention of the process of vitrification, the success rate of creating an embryo is around 95 percent. This is owing to the use of more technologically advanced methods.
  5. Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection: The Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection or the ICSI method involves selection of a single sperm, which is eventually injected into the egg. It is an invasive process, and the selection of the sperm plays a pivotal role in the success of the process.

Laser Assisted Liposuction - How Can It Be Of Help?

Laser Assisted Liposuction - How Can It Be Of Help?

Your genetic background influences where your body fat is stored. In case, your mother or father has fat stored in the abdomen, hips, waist or in the thigh, it is likely for you to develop deposits of fat in the same regions.

Circumstances of Genetic Fat

  • You may have a proper or a balanced BMI (body mass index) but still tend to develop bulges in areas, which are likely to make you look disproportional.
  • You may become obese by development of excess fat accumulation in the lower abdomen region, referred to as pannus. Extra fat may accumulate in your lower back and hips as well, which cannot be lost in spite of taking weight losing measures.

Liposuction to get rid of extra fat:

  • Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that allows you to remove genetic fat or any extra fat from the body, in order to change the body's shape. Liposuction does not remove cellulites and tightening of loose skin cannot be done.
  • Liposuction removes excess fat from the body by suction. Small, narrow tubes with blunt tips known as the cannulae are inserted through incisions in the skin surface. The tubes are moved under the skin to target the suction of fat deposits.

There are several types of liposuction techniques:

  1. Tumescent Liposuction: In this form of liposuction, a wetting solution such as lidocaine with a local anesthetic is injected into the patient before surgery. This causes the shrinking or constriction of blood vessels due to which it allows liposuction to be performed while the patient is under local anaesthesia. Blood loss and post surgical pains are reduced.
  2. Suction Assisted Liposuction: This mode of liposuction also known as SAL is the most primary form of liposuction. It involves drawing out of fat using a vacuum.
  3. Power Assisted Liposuction: This liposuction technique called PAL in short involves the process of SAL with an extra tool for increasing the motion of the cannula. The process is faster.
  4. Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction: This process (UAL) involves the transmission of energy via a specialized hand piece for loosening and melting of fat. A greater volume of fat can be removed via UAL.
  5. VASER: It is a variation of the UAL method where an ultrasonic cannula with grooves helps in energy disruption to improve removal of fat.


Laser Assisted Liposuction:
LAL is a newly developed liposuction technology where a laser works like an ultrasound for disruption and removal of fat cells. This mode is more efficient and involves less trauma. Liposuction is an effective way to remove unwanted, genetic fat from your body, which may be harming your body image. However, liposuction is associated with severe side effects.

Which Common Liposuction Technique Should You Choose?

Liposuction is one of the many forms of cosmetic surgery which is used to improve the appearance of the whole or part of a person’s body. This surgery involves the removal of fat from the body by using the method of suction. The process involves insertion of thin, small and blunt tubes called cannula into the skin which are connected to a suction device known as “aspirator”. It is an outpatient procedure and generally does not require an overnight stay at the hospital. Usually, local anaesthesia is utilized in this procedure unless it is large amounts of fat that need to be worked on. 

Reduction of weight is not the main objective, but to reshape certain parts of your body by getting rid of the fat. It is generally preferred for those areas in your body which do not respond to either exercise or diet, such as the buttocks, upper arms and the legs. In some cases, it might also have to be combined with other procedures such as face lift, breast reduction and abdominoplasty

There are multiple liposuction techniques such as: 

  1. VASER Liposuction: VASER Lipo gently and effectively eliminates fat for a smooth, naturally beautiful look. 
  2. Laser Assisted Liposuction: The technique utilizes a laser to melt the excess fat in the targeted area. 
  3. Tumescent Liposuction: Local anaesthesia is administered to the treatment area to facilitate liposuction. 
  4. Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction: A special cannula, which transmits ultrasound waves throughout the body, is used. 
  5. Suction Assisted Liposuction: This is the standard method which utilizes a cannula which is inserted via a tiny incision. 
  6. Power Assisted Liposuction: A special cannula capable of mechanical movement is used. 
  7. External Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction: In this method, ultrasonic waves are applied using an external device. 

Certain factors to be considered 
Certain medical conditions such as fatty tumours, complications in fat metabolism and enlargement of the male breasts are treated by liposuction. An improvement in the body shape might be noticed immediately after the procedure. The skin around the area where the procedure has been performed may turn loose and it may take a few months for the area to be normal again. After the procedure, a course of antibiotics may be prescribed to treat any infection that may occur. The recovery period is around a few days to one week. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Which Type Of Liposuction Techniques You Need To Choose?

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery used to improve the appearance of the whole or part of a person’s body. This surgery involves the permanent removal of fat from the body by using the method of suction. The process involves using a fine blunt cannula to remove the fat and fat cells from a part of the body. The fat is liquified with the help of an ultrasonic device (Vaser) which is then sucked out of the body.

Usually, regional anaesthesia may suffice for the lower part of the body or general anesthesia may be required for multiple areas. It primarily reshapes certain parts of your body by getting rid of the fat. in the process when the fat is lost permanently, weight is also reduced. It is generally preferred for those areas in your body which do not respond to either exercise or diet, such as the buttocks, abdomen, breast, thighs, arms and the legs. In some cases, it may also be combined with other procedures such as, breast reduction and abdominoplasty

There are various liposuction techniques such as: 

  1. Laser assisted liposuction: The technique utilizes a laser to melt the excess fat in the targeted area. 
  2. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction: A special cannula, which transmits ultrasound waves throughout the body, is used to liquify the fat. 
  3. Power assisted liposuction: A special cannula capable of mechanical movement is used for quicker fat removal and better reshaping. An improvement in the body shape might be noticed immediately after the procedure. Pre existing skin laxity also reduces with the liposuction procedure. The recovery period is around a few days to 2-3 weeks.
