In many ways, this advanced form of liposuction is similar to traditional treatment. In addition to eradicating unwanted fat, ultrasonic liposuction first liquefies the cells with powerful sound waves. In this state, they will be easier to remove. As a result, the procedure will have less impact on your surrounding tissue, and you should experience very little discomfort. Dr. Passaretti is committed to patient safety, uses only proven ultrasonic instruments, and stays up-to-date in the latest treatment methods.
Is Ultrasonic Liposuction Right for You?
Similar to traditional methods, the treatment can eliminate fat from most areas of the body. However, it is especially appropriate for larger or denser pockets of fat. Therefore, if you wish to address your back, thighs, sides, or similar areas, ultrasonic liposuction may be right for you.
The energy from the ultrasonic waves can tighten skin, giving you an even more toned and rejuvenated look.
The Ultrasonic Liposuction Procedure
First, Dr. Passaretti will inject the treatment area with a tumescent formula. This solution will cause the fat cells to swell and the blood vessels to shrink. As a result, it will be easier for Dr. Passaretti to identify the unwanted cells. Then he will insert an ultrasound cannula through tiny incisions. The tool will emit high-power sound waves, which will melt and liquefy the fat before it is removed. In some cases, he may use stitches to close the incisions, but in many instances, they will heal on their own.
Benefits of the Technique
There are a number of reasons that Dr. Passaretti offers innovative ultrasonic liposuction. It will be easier for your doctor to remove fat without affecting the surrounding tissue. There should also be very little bleeding and reduced inflammation. This method can get rid of very fibrous pockets of fat from areas like the back, which would otherwise be hard to treat. Often, Dr. Passaretti can also eliminate a greater volume of fat. Thanks to the tumescent solution that will constrict your blood vessels, bleeding will be negligible. Lastly, the energy from the ultrasonic waves can tighten skin, giving you an even more toned and rejuvenated look.
