Introduction to Ultrasonic Liposuction

in Liposuction

Ultrasonic liposuction is one popular form of plastic surgery that is designed to work like traditional liposuction in that it gives patients a way to specifically target certain spots of the body for fat removal. One reason this is popular is because while diet and exercise can help to keep you healthy and looking good as a whole, these can not be used to "spot reduce" fat from any part of the body. Because of this, sometimes a cosmetic procedure can be the best way to reduce unappealing fat deposits from parts of the body that don't look good even after a lot of exercise and dieting.

Ultrasonic liposuction is currently one of the more popular options because there are many different techniques that come under the general term of "ultrasonic" procedures. Some of the most recent techniques that have been developed even in just the last five years allow for the same positive effect as traditional liposuction procedures without having to use the more invasive practices.

For example, there is a form called "Vaser Liposuction" that uses a general and localized anesthetic to numb the area being treated, but the patient isn't put to sleep. They can be awake, read, or be conscious while the procedure is done, and they often experience very low bruising and other traditional side effects. Basically liquids are injected into the fatty tissue deposits and then a tool is used to convey ultrasonic waves through the liquid, which then helps to "flush" the fat out of the body.

One drawback of ultrasonic liposuction is that these specific procedures are often more expensive than other forms of cosmetic surgery. Another concern is that with internal ultrasonic liposuction, there might be some safety issues if older equipment is used. As with any surgical procedure, always get as much information as you can about the equipment used, the experience of your surgeon, and the overall pros and cons of any procedure before you undergo treatment.

Ultrasonic liposuction has come a very long way over the past several years, and the changes and technological advances have made this form of cosmetic surgery even more desirable than it was years ago. If you have decided on plastic surgery, do all your homework, but consider giving ultrasonic liposuction a fair investigation before making your decision.
