Ultrasonic liposuction removes fat from areas that do not respond to exercise or dieting – the abdomen, back, male chest and hips, chin, etc. This process ensures more complete fat removal with less blood loss and damage to surrounding tissues. Its other advantage over traditional liposuction is that it results in tighter and more elastic skin and is, therefore, especially useful in treating abdominal areas after pregnancy.
As some of the equipment used is disposable, ultrasonic treatment is more expensive – but only marginally.
As with all surgical procedures there are risks and potential complications, some of which are exclusive to ultrasonic liposuction. We weight all risks, alternatives and potential benefits in consultation with patients before we decide on any procedure to be followed.
Cellulite results from superficial fat, so liposuction may not make a difference. It removes only deep fat.
Liposuction is a good option if your skin tone is good, you have excess tummy fat, and no stretch marks. A tummy tuck makes more sense for patients with stretch marks, loose skin and a loose inner girdle, all of which usually follow a pregnancy.
Post-operation, pain medications need to be taken to alleviate discomfort and a body-compression garment will need to be worn to minimize swelling. Although results show within the first few weeks, some swelling may remain for several months and the final result will only be clear roughly three months after surgery.
As liposuction involves minimal invasiveness, most people are back on their feet within a day or two, and ready to resume exercising after two weeks.
