What is Ultrasonic Liposuction?

Ultrasonic liposuction is a form of liposuction where excess fat is liquefied using sound waves in order to help make its removal easier and smoother during liposuction.

Who Should Opt For Ultrasonic Liposuction?

Ultrasonic liposuction is a more advanced form of both regular lipoplasty and tumescent liposuction, which is used to get precise body contouring results. In case you are a healthy individual with fat deposits that are not going away even after continued exercise and dieting, then you can consider ultrasonic liposuction. Only an experienced plastic surgeon will be able to tell you if you are an ideal candidate for ultrasonic liposuction after a thorough physical examination.

The Ultrasonic Liposuction Procedure

During ultrasonic liposuction, an aqueous solution of lidocaine, epinephrine and saline water is first injected into the area from which fat is to be removed. Small incisions are made on the sides and thin hollow tubes are inserted inside. Sound waves are transmitted to the fat with the help of this cannula, which is also used for sucking out the fat that liquefies due to the effect of the tumescent solution and ultrasonic waves.


Ultrasonic liposuction can be used for treating areas with dense fat deposits and those from which a large amount of fat removal needs to take place. Ultrasonic liposuction is far superior to other forms of liposuction since it provides extreme precision and unlike other lipoplasty procedures, leaves no loose skin.

Risks and Side Effects

Apart from carrying the risks associated with all plastic surgery procedures, ultrasonic liposuction also carries the risk of scarring, blistering and burns because of the heat produced by high frequency sound waves. In most cases, excess fluid produced by the body to fill the fat cavity needs to be removed for a number of days.


Ultrasonic liposuction is costlier than regular liposuction, and may cost you upwards of $2,000 to $3000 per area from which fat removal has to take place.
