Abstract

Ultrasonic assisted liposuction is a new and highly advanced technology that uses sound waves to emulsify body fat thereby allowing an efficient removal compared with the mechanical disruption of fat used in traditional liposuction. Safe application requires an exceptionally sophisticated plastic surgical, anesthetic, and operating room team. The media bombards patients with "magic wand" medical technology but seems less inclined to portray limitations, complications, and deaths. As with any emerging technology, ultrasonic assisted liposuction is producing its share of problems. This article provides an overview of this procedure and guidelines for patient selection. A conservative approach is emphasized for safety.
