Ultrasonic Liposuction

How Ultrasonic Technique is Done

Ultrasonic liposuction, an almost magical sounding approach to surgically removing lumps of fat in unwanted areas of the face and body, has been coming for a long time. Now, it's here. In fact, Dr. Korpeck and his staff offer it to patients as an in-office, outpatient procedure.

Before making your decision, however, it's in your best interest to find out about this liposuction technique, which is usually used in conjunction with the tumescent technique.

Ultrasonic liposuction does not replace the traditional tumescent technique; rather, the liposuction techniques compliment each other in some cases.

Ultrasonic liposuction is a method of removing fat from under the skin by using ultrasonic waves. Ultrasound waves are produced by transforming normal electric energy into high frequency sound wave energy. Ultrasound was first introduced in medicine in the 1970s to produce images for diagnostic purposes, such as to show the progression of a fetus. Therapeutic uses of ultrasound have been utilized in neurology, urology and ophthalmology for more than a decade.

Ultrasonic liposuction utilizes mechanical sound waves, which are transmitted via a generator to the tip of a suction cannula. As the cannula tip touches the fat cells, they emulsify, becoming liquid. Then, the liquid fat is removed by low pressure suction out of the body.

The benefits of the procedure seem to be that liquefied fat is easier to remove, causing less trauma to surrounding structures, including blood vessels and connective tissue. Patients, as result, may find recovery easier. Ultrasonic liposuction has been shown to be beneficial in areas with more fibrous tissue, such as the male breasts, hips, and outer thighs. A major advantage of the procedure is that it allows for the removal of more fat, versus traditional liposuction, which can be used to remove smaller volumes. Skin contraction also improves over the traditional technique and the plastic surgeon's ability to refine the shape of the limb or body part being suctioned may be better with ultrasonic liposuction.

BioLean Free: A nutritional supplement

The effects of liposuction and subdermal lymphatic drainage go hand in hand with lifestyle approaches that encourage optimum weight and healthy living. So, we offer patients and others BioLean, an all-natural herbal and amino acid nutritional supplement that can enhance mental and physical performance. The nutritional supplement supplement does not take the place of a good diet and exercise; rather, it enhances your efforts and allows you to see progress. The formulation works by increasing the body's ability to convert fats and carbohydrates into energy, while preserving lean body protein. It naturally helps to stimulate metabolism and energy. Dr. Korpeck's office offers this nutritional therapy.
