Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction is a new body-contouring technique, based on the use of ultrasonic energy. Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction or UAL uses high-frequency sound waves to "melt" fat into a liquid. Plastic surgeons can suction larger volumes of fat, minimizing blood loss resulting in less postoperative bruising and swelling and therefore a faster recovery time.
Patients may have twice the amount of fat removed with UAL than traditional liposuction. In addition, the patient does not have to be at their optimum weight to have this procedure performed.
