Liposuction - Assisted

Laser / Ultrasound Assisted

Liposuction assisted with laser or ultrasound liquefies the fat before it is removed from the body.

Who is a good candidate for assisted liposuction?

Laser- or ultrasound-assisted liposuction may offer some advantages, such as sedation rather than general anesthesia, less trauma to the site and smoother skin in the end. Nevertheless, you should be aware that these techniques are still considered to be relatively new and there are few studies to prove the end results are better than traditional liposuction. It's important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages with your plastic surgeon.

Find A Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon In Your Area

Caution: In the wrong or inexperienced hands, laser- or ultrasound-assisted liposuction can be dangerous. In addition to seeking a doctor who is trained and board-certified in plastic surgery, make sure the physician has specific experience with this types of procedure. As you do your homework, you should be suspicious if the liposuction pricing is far lower than what's quoted by qualified plastic surgeons. This could be an indicator that the provider is not properly qualified to perform the procedure.
