Ultrasonic liposuction

Fat's vise-like grip can make it impossible to shake no matter how many brownies you skip. Yet ultrasonic-assisted liposuction does just that.

Ultrasonic Liposuction Side Effects

Ultrasonic-assisted liposuction can cause bruising, infection, minimal bleeding, numbness of the skin, burning, blood clots and swelling.

Who shouldn't use it: Individuals with endocrine disorders, diabetes, and women who are pregnant may not be able to get ultrasonic-assisted liposuction. The procedure should not be used near skin with rashes, sores, or scars.

Ultrasonic-assisted liposuction, like all body contouring procedures, is not a solution to obesity - rather, it is a treatment that removes isolated areas of unwanted fat.

Drawbacks: The internal probe used in ultrasonic liposuction can leave a noticeable scar. The external paddle can burn your skin.

Recovery Time For Ultrasonic Liposuction

Ultrasonic-assisted liposuction can take from two days to two weeks to recover from, depending on how extensive the treatment was and how your body reacts and heals.

After care for ultrasonic liposuction: After ultrasonic-assisted liposuction, you'll be squeezed into a compression garment that provides your body with support. This should be worn for 24 hours before removing it for your first post-UAL shower.

The compression garment should be worn daily for about two weeks. Antibiotics and painkillers can be prescribed by your physician.
