What is Ultrasonic Liposuction?

Plastic Surgeon Serving Indianapolis, Indiana


At Renaissance Plastic Surgery, Dr. Joseph Fata does everything he can to make his patients’ experiences safe, pleasant and effective. Indianapolis patients who come in for liposuction are often excellent candidates for a version of the procedure that takes advantage of ultrasound technology.

With ultrasonic liposuction, Dr. Fata can reduce post-procedure swelling and bruising while also cutting down your recovery time.

The ultrasonic liposuction procedure is broadly similar to the traditional version, in which fat cells are removed using a small tube. However, in the traditional procedure, those cells are still solid when removed.

In ultrasonic liposuction, our Indianapolis plastic surgeon will use powerful but safe ultrasonic waves to break up and liquefy fat cells in areas where those cells are firm and tight. The fat is then removed through a tube.

And that’s it. Ultrasonic liposuction does less damage to surrounding tissues than traditional liposuction, which is why it reduces bruising and recovery time.

Dr. Fata will answer all of your liposuction questions, evaluate you to ensure you are a sound candidate for the procedure and use his decades of experience to give you a safe, effective procedure.
