Ultrasonic lipo is not just marketing, it is a legitimately different technique which I use every day to reduce fatty deposits on practically any area of the body. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Maybe: Any external technique that can achieve an internal temperature of between 38-42 degrees celcius has the potential to work on melting fat. The term liposuction is incorrect because in these cases the fat is left behind for the body to absorb. Liposuction is a more invasive procedure requiring an incision to insert the suction cannula to extract the fat permanently. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Ultrasonic Lipo: Ultrasonic Liposuction or UAL is a procedure that uses high-pitched sound waves to liquify fat in a specific area before it is removed.

Ultrasound: Ultrasonic liposuction uses the energy of sound waves to break up and separate the fat from the surrounding connective tissue. It can be advantageous to use this technique in areas where fat is surrounded by fibrous tissue such as in the male chest. Ultrasonic liposuction carries the increased risk of sub-dermal thermal injury, as the tip of the device can generate substantial heat. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Be Careful!: Unfortunately for the “consumer”, there is minimal regulation involved when it comes to who can perform these procedures and the terminology employed etc. Patients need to do their own due diligence. My best advice would be to seek consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons; ask to see lots of examples of their work and talk to previous patients as well. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
As with most things: You can't make an omelette without cracking some eggs. In other words, the noninvasive procedures may have some benefit but it's nothing like what can be achieved with the actual surgical procedure. It is however noninvasive so it therefore has a significant advantage. My feeling is that a procedure which is, say one half as effective should probably cost about one half as much. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

No reason not: Certainly, myasthenia gravis scares many doctors, but really a simple issue. If your meds are keeping you stable, and you are not in either cholinergic or myasthenic crisis, with good pulmonary functions, there is no reason to not get procedure. But have surgeon and anesthesiologist familiarize themselves with drugs which can affect neuromuscular junction, and avoid those if possible. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Can the ultrasonic liposuction procedure cause burns of the skin? I would like to have ultrasonic liposuction on my abdomen to get rid of the ugly fat, after having 3 children. I believe it uses some sort of ultrasound that creates heat to burn fat. Can i
Not much: Both are liposuction techniques with ultrasound. The benefit of ultrasound is multifold: it helps melt the fat so that it can be resorbed by the body. It helps when there is a lot of fibrous tissue that can't be sucked out with regular liposuction and it may help tighten the skin. Having said all that its not that new and there is no definitive evidence that it is better than regular liposuction. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
