Ultrasonic liposuction is similar to the traditional liposuction method, only better. Also called ultrasonic-assisted lipoplasty, or UAL, this advanced fat-removal method allows Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim to achieve great results in a minimally invasive manner, which makes for improved comfort and reduced healing time.
About Ultrasonic Liposuction
A specially-designed cannula (or tube) is used to first disrupt the targeted fat cells with high-energy sound waves. Fat deposits get larger not because there are more fat cells, but because the fat cells themselves swell. This swelling makes fat cells vulnerable to disruption by ultrasonic energy that leaves stronger connective tissue, blood vessels, and other tissue relatively unharmed. UAL is excellent for removing fatty deposits that may have been difficult to capture with the traditional liposuction process. In fact, UAL is often effective on regions of the body with tough tissue that is resistant to the traditional method.
Dr. Kim offers his Beverly Hills patients the incredible VASER® Lipo, an advanced type of ultrasonic liposuction that takes the principles of ultrasonic energy one step further to reduce liposuction risks, minimize discomfort, and improve your overall experience.
Why We Prefer VASER® Lipo
VASER® Lipo uses the patented LipoSelection® technique, which helps Dr. Kim easily differentiate between unwanted fat cells and other vital tissue. Nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue are not disturbed during the fat removal process, increasing the safety and precision of your procedure. VASER® Lipo may be used on any areas that contain stubborn pockets of fat, including the:
After VASER® Lipo
At your first postoperative visit, Dr. Kim will outfit you with a special elastic dressing or compression garment to be worn for a specific time period. A few days of downtime is usually sufficient, followed by the gradual return to normal activities. Dr. Kim will restrict strenuous activities for a certain period of time, depending on the areas treated and the amount of fat removed. Many people have shorter healing times with VASER® Lipo, but for other people the healing period is comparable to traditional liposuction. Your results will continue to improve over time with final results becoming apparent in about 3-6 months.
