In brief: Many purposes
Manynuse this for nearly all forms of liposuction because it may make it more easy to extract the fat via a process known as cavitation.
On the other hand many save it for areas of dense fat suc as male breasts, live handles, bra strap or upper back and areas of secondary liposuction. It's ability to help in the contraction of skin remains debated.

In brief: Be Careful
There are many different liposuction technologies available; each claims to be better than the other. Each is also heavily marketed.
In my opinion, much more important than the specific technology used (when it comes to the surgical outcome or “effectiveness” of the procedure) is the surgeon using the “tool”. Patients are responsible to do their due diligence and select surgeon carefully.

In brief: Debatable
Some doctors use ultrasonic liposuction for all their lipo cases because they bought the system. Other use it only for redos.
I don't use it at all because i really didn't see the usefulness and didn't like the higher price it would have been for my clients.

In brief: Good option
Ultrasonic liposuction, also referred to as vaser, is useful as an adjunct to traditional liposuction to break up areas of fibrosis.
Fibrosis is encountered after past liposuction or in areas like the back.
