1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes it does work

Ultrasonic liposuction works well to liquify fat allowing easier removal with standard liposuction.
It also generates some heat to help tighten the skin.

In brief: 2 different versions

There are two different versions of ultrasonic liposuction: internal vs external.
While the success of the former is well established the latter is still evolving with many different devices making a variety of claims and requiring more than one session.

In brief: Yes.Less bleeding.

Ultrasonic liposuction is when ultrasonic energy is used to break down the fat, rathaer than he too and fr mechanical action of standard liposuction.
Ultrasonic energyis more specific in breaking down the fat without rupturing too many blood vessels as it happens in standard liposuction, thereby causing lot less blood loss.Also ultrasonic liposuction has effect on skin tightening.
