Ultrasound Liposeluction a term which is slowly becoming popular. Though still unfamiliar, this new method is the least painful and most effective way to shed that excess "exercise resistant" body fat with minimum downtime and it looks to revolutionise the way liposuction is performed.
So what are the benefits of having ultrasound liposelection over the traditional methods? the process is tissue selective (Fat Selective) & therefore gives more uniform results, decreases the blood loss (allowing larger volume liposuction), achieves excellent skin retraction post op and as previously stated, a shorter recovery time, with a lesser bruising and pain.
The ultrasonic technology breaks the fat cells & emulsifies (Liquefies) fat, allowing it to be suctioned out easily, leaving the veins, nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue unscathed without collateral damage.
The procedure can be done under local anaesthetic and sedation if it involves small areas , rather than general anaesthesia. This in turn means that after the liposelection, people can be back at work only days after having the procedure. It is generally used for treating excess fat on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, underarm, to get rid of the 'love handles', double chin, 'saddle bags', 'banana rolls' and 'man breasts' (Gynaecomastia) and also allows for better sculpting in tougher and fibrous areas like back. It is an effective procedure for both sexes.
