Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL) Surgery
What is Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL)?
This particular liposuction technique represents a more recently developed treatment modality. In its most simple form, UAL uses sound waves to liquefy the fat deposits after injection of tumescent fluid. The fat is then removed with the traditional liposuction technique. By using sound waves to break-up the fat deposits, UAL minimizes trauma and results in less bruising and blood loss. Furthermore, UAL has been shown to improve the ease and effectiveness of liposuction in especially fibrous areas of the body such as the upper back or the enlarged male breast. It is also commonly used in secondary procedures when enhanced precision is needed. In general, UAL takes longer to perform than traditional liposuction.

Several studies have indicated that ultrasound-assisted liposuction is remarkably efficient in treating dense, fibrous fatty tissue of certain anatomical regions in just one session. This is excellent because it can help reduce recovery time as compared with multiple sessions.
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) can produc less risk for sagging skin and may even improve cellulite problems (that is, get rid of the “cottage cheese” look of fat-saturated thighs and bellies).
Patients have reported less postoperative pain with ultrasound-assisted liposuction, which makes it a lot like laser liposuction except for the fact that it can dissolve significantly larger amounts of fat per session.
UAL may be done on people who are overweight, although they’re still encouraged to diet and exercise to normalize weight before undergoing this treatment. UAL makes overweight liposuction possible because it causes minimal blood loss and has verifiable skin-tightening benefits.
The usual liposuction side effect of creating “wavy” areas of fat in your body is significantly reduced by ultrasound-assisted liposuction. Ultrasound assistance combined with tumescent injections can preserve your skin’s natural abilities to contract and retract. Besides the sheer accuracy, this liposuction method makes smooth and balanced body sculpting all the more possible.
Traditional liposuction is also known to cause more bruising than UAL techniques because the older method causes tissue trauma in order to manually vacuum the fat. Both of the two ultrasound-assisted liposuction types (internal and external) have the ability to emulsify or melt fat without destroying adjacent tissue thanks to cannula-based or generator-based sound wave technology.
The sound waves in UAL typically target fat cells in particular, which cause them to implode and liquefy for streamlined fat removal. This fact is critical, because the precision of this technique makes it possible to minimize blood and tissue loss as well as optimize the fat suctioning process.
