Ultrasound-Assisted Fat Reduction

Ultrasound-assisted fat reduction (UFAFR) is an innovative body contouring procedure that uses ultrasound technology to liquefy fat cells before suctioning them from the body. This non-invasive solution offers a viable alternative to liposuction or other more invasive procedures for eliminating stubborn localized fat deposits.

As part of the procedure, your doctor will first apply topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area before inserting an ultrasound probe to target unwanted fat tissue. Sonic vibrations generated from this device destroy fat cell walls and liquefy fat deposits within them before being extracted with an suction tool known as a cannula for easy removal from your body.

Ultrasound machines generate their sonic vibrations based on cavitation. This phenomenon occurs when low-density substances such as adipose tissue is exposed to sufficient negative pressure; as it has lower density than surrounding skin and muscle tissue, adipose tissues are particularly susceptible to negative pressure and thus more susceptible to microcavities forming which lead to gas bubble formation – once they reach certain sizes they’re forced by blood vessels and fluids to burst and eventually dead cells are reabsorbed back into bloodstream and eliminated as waste products from body’s circulatory system and excreted as waste products by natural processes in body’s circulatory system.

Ultrasound technology uses sound waves with a frequency of 16,000 cycles per second or Hertz to create negative pressure within adipose tissue and cause it to explode, creating negative pressure that allows surgeons to easily remove it. When these sound waves reach adipose tissue they penetrate deep into skin layers creating vibrations which cause cells to rupture while also dissolving them and creating energy releases which help reshape surrounding tissue and allow your surgeon to easily remove them.

During the procedure, you’ll feel the sonic vibrations created by an ultrasound device on your skin and hear its soundwaves whizzing through tissue. Don’t worry; they won’t hurt; in fact they can actually feel quite relaxing! Additionally, these sonic vibrations allow surgeons to be more precise with fat removal while simultaneously protecting healthy tissue structures from damage.

Internal and external laser hair removal (UAL) procedures exist. Internal UAL requires local anesthesia while external can be completed without incisions at all. For internal procedures, your surgeon will insert a small paddle-like device that emits sonic vibrations to break up fat cells inside your body and once they have been broken apart by using cannula suction, your cells will be suctioned out using cannula suctioning technology.

Under ultrasound technology, Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL) has become an alternative to surgical procedures for eliminating stubborn areas of fat that resist diet and exercise.
