the tumescent technique

Ultrasonically-assisted lipoplasty (UAL) is a complement to traditional forms of liposuction in Los Angeles, including the tumescent technique. Combining these techniques enables our surgeons to go more superficially under the skin, resulting in less disruption of surrounding tissue. Ultrasonic energy acts primarily on the fat cells and has no effect on the vascular, nervous, or connective tissues around the excess fat deposits. With UAL our surgeons can achieve smoother liposuction results, remove difficult fibrous fatty deposits and aspirate more fat. UAL is ideal for areas of the body where fat is interspersed with fibrous tissue. The most frequent areas treated by UAL in men are the love handles, lower back, and chest. In women they include the thighs, hips, buttocks, back, and stomach.

Ultrasonic liposuction uses a specially-designed cannula (a thin medical wand) that emits high-energy sound waves to create vibration within the body. This vibration ruptures the walls of fat cells, and the liquid fat can be easily removed during a second step that uses traditional liposuction. Our surgeons have experience performing UAL as well as power-assisted liposuction, which in most cases they find to be a superior technique in terms of procedure time, recovery, and results.

Younger Patients Are Choosing Cosmetic Surgery

This procedure can be completed in just a few hours at our outpatient surgery suite. After surgery, you will need to wear a snug elastic dressing, girdle, or body stocking over the treated area for several weeks. You will go home after the procedure and rest for at least 24 hours, after which you may gradually increase your activity as tolerated. Two or three days after your Los Angeles ultrasonic liposuction you may resume non-strenuous activities. For the right patient, UAL can yield satisfying results but your candidacy should be reviewed carefully.

Our surgeons strive to deliver the best ultrasonic liposuction Los Angeles has to offer and they have experience successfully performing body contouring using a variety of techniques and will be able to recommend a personalized treatment plan for you after an examination during your consultation. You can receive a private consultation when you request your appointment online and schedule your visit during one of the select times our surgeons have set aside exclusively for Web visitors. If you would like even more information on liposuction, be sure to visit our liposuction specialty site.
