The Benefits of Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction

The Benefits of Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction

Liposuction removes fat from places in your body that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, liposuction was one of the top 5 cosmetic surgery procedures in 2013. During liposuction, small tubes called cannulas are inserted under the skin and fat is suctioned out through these tubes. Liposuction can target fat deposits in thighs, hips and buttocks, abdomen, upper arms, back, inner knee, chest, cheeks, neck, calves, and ankles. Liposuction can be combined with other procedures such as facelift, breast reduction, and tummy tuck.

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction

Improved techniques have made liposuction safer, easier, and less painful. The targeted area is first injected with a saline solution that numbs the area and shrinks the blood vessels. Then a special cannula that gives off ultrasound energy liquefies the fat cells and suctions them out. This process is designed to be minimally invasive and highly effective.

Procedure Results

It’s important to remember that liposuction is mainly used to reshape the body, not to reduce body weight. Liposuction will not treat cellulite. Liposuction can be effective for reducing fat in certain areas but if you gain weight after having liposuction, the fat is likely to return or can appear in a different place. Some visible improvement in your body contour will be apparent right away, but it could take several months before seeing the full effect.
