Ultrasonic Liposuction Miami

When it comes to body contouring and achieving the figure you have always wanted, ultrasonic liposuction at Miami Plastic Surgery is an excellent option to consider. Not only can the procedure get rid of more fat than any other type of liposuction, but it also works extremely well on those areas in which it is often difficult to break down fat cells, such as the chin, neck, and ankles. Here’s everything you need to know.

What is Ultrasonic Liposuction?

Ultrasonic lipo is a step up from the traditional liposuction procedures that we have become accustomed to over the years. In short, during the ultrasonic liposuction process, fat is broken down with the help of ultrasound waves. These waves assist in liquefying stubborn fat storage in various areas of the body, thus making it easier to remove.

Advantages and Risks of Ultrasonic Liposuction

The main advantage of ultrasonic liposuction is the fact that it can get rid of as much of the accumulated fat as possible, ultimately leading to more pleasing results for the patient. Another advantage is the ability to treat areas that are prone to stubborn fat deposits.

There is always a certain amount of risk associated with any surgical procedure and ultrasonic liposuction is no different. Possible risks include:

  • Blood clots,
  • Longer lasting periods of numbness at the site of the surgery,
  • Seroma, and
  • Burns and blisters.

While these risks are small, it is important for a patient to be fully aware of them before making the decision to proceed with the surgery.

The Ultrasonic Liposuction Procedure

The ultrasonic liposuction procedure begins when the surgeon injects tumescent fluid into the area of the body that is being treated. This fluid is a mixture of anesthetic, salt water solution, and epinephrine. It assists in lifting the fat deposits and protects against fluid loss throughout the procedure. From there, ultrasound waves from a generator will be targeted at the area through a cannula (which is a thin tube). When the cannula meets the fat cells, they are quickly liquefied and suctioned out.

Recovery after Ultrasonic Liposuction

Recovery from the procedure will vary from patient to patient. The average downtime after ultrasonic liposuction in Miami is anything between 5 days and 2 weeks.
