Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction in Miami
- Slenderizes areas unresponsive to diet and exercise
- Can be performed on almost any area
While similar to traditional liposuction, Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (UAL or VASER Liposuction) combines ultrasound energy to aid in the removal of unwanted fat that the patient has been unable to lose through traditional diet and exercise.
Who Should Consider Ultrasound Liposuction?
UAL is a liposuction technique that is used as a permanent fat reduction procedure to slim the body and achieve a sleek result. Areas often treated through UAL include:
- Chin and neck
- Upper arms
- Flanks and back
- Tummy and hips
UAL is ideally performed on patients who have achieved a stable body weight. The procedure may be performed alone or incorporated with other procedures such as a tummy tuck, body, thigh or arm lift, male breast reduction, or breast reduction.
The Surgical Process
When UAL is performed, it is like traditional liposuction in that a small suction device is placed under the skin to remove unwanted fat deposits. However, UAL uses ultrasonic energy that targets and breaks up fat cells making their removal easier. In many cases, UAL can achieve results comparable to traditional liposuction with a shorter downtime and fewer post-operative side effects.
Life After Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction in Miami
Following the UAL procedure, you should expect some downtime, but most people return to work after several days. The recovery period for UAL is often shorter than that of traditional liposuction and the patient experiences fewer contour irregularities. You may be prescribed medications following treatment to manage any discomfort.
Like traditional liposuction, UAL does have some possible side effects including burning, numbness, swelling, infection, healing delays and formation of blood or fat clots; the greater the removal of fat, the greater the risk of these side effects or complications.
