Ultrasonic iposuction is an advanced, patented fat removal technology that is used to remove unwanted fat in various areas of the body such as the stomach, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, chest, breasts, knees, arms, ankles, chin, back and neck.
Ultrasonic liposuction is tissue-selective, removing unwanted fat cells but preserving other surrounding tissues—such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. Compared to traditional liposuction surgery, recovery time is faster and the pain and bruising are less.
In this technique, the incisions that the surgeon makes are small and heal quickly. A special saline solution is injected into the fatty areas. The fluid contains a local anesthetic to alleviate pain and blood vessel constricting drugs to minimize blood loss. A thin probe that emits ultrasonic waves is inserted and the energy delivered to the area breaks down the fat into a liquid form. The fat is then suctioned out through the small incisions.
Aside from fat reduction, ultrasonic liposuction is also used for body sculpting and contouring in patients who already have good muscle tone without excessive amounts of fat or excess skin but desire a more defined and sculpted appearance.
