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,
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
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
