External Ultrasonic Liposuction: Overview
Have you been dreaming of the perfect body but find it difficult to lose fat in certain areas even when you’re watching what you eat and working out? Dr. Michael W. Gray can help make your dreams a reality with External Ultrasonic Liposuction. This procedure permanently removes fat cells that may be resistant to diet and exercise. The great part about External Ultrasonic Liposuction is that it can be performed almost anywhere on the body including the cheeks, neck, chest, breasts, arms, armpits, abdomen, back, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, calves, ankles and hump on the back of the neck (buffalo hump). If you can pinch it, you can reduce it!
External Ultrasonic Liposuction: Procedure
During external Ultrasonic Liposuction, Dr. Gray uses a hand piece to massage ultrasonic soundwaves through the skin. These high frequency sound waves liquefy the fat cells, making them easier to remove. External Ultrasonic Liposuction is a popular procedure because it involves no incisions and the fat is removed through small puncture holes. Unlike traditional liposuction, External Ultrasonic Liposuction allows Dr. Gray to remove greater amounts of fat evenly with less bruising, bleeding, and pain for better results.
Many people prefer External Ultrasonic Liposuction over dieting, because it reduces only the area being treated and does not affect any other part of the body. Whereas, dieting affects areas of the body most people don’t want to reduce, such as the face and breasts.
External Ultrasonic Liposuction: Recovery
After External Ultrasonic Liposuction most patients return to work the same day or very next day. Wearing compression (while not required) helps minimize the swelling and does not affect the results. The length of time and amount of compression worn is up to the patient.
