The sound waves are able to modify the organizational structure when they are transmitted through fluids. Based on this concept was used for the first time, ultrasound in cataract surgery in mid-1960 with the introduction of phacoemulsification. Thus, its use has spread to the various branches of surgery when the goal has been the selective destruction of unwanted tissues. The Italian doctor, Michele Zocchi in 1988, was the first plastic surgeon who applied the ultrasonic waves to selectively destroy fat cells of the body, its results have stimulated tremendous world-class research that continue the same, hence suffer its technology and expertise changes and new concepts and directions appear. For a sound wave, which is mechanical energy, whether it is necessary ultrasonic frequency is above 16 000 kHz, in plastic surgery that is generated from crystals that have the ability or whether they are piezoelectric capable of being deformed by alternating electrical current, the fluctuations of the deformation ultrasonic frequency vibrations to produce the same as the channels are amplified through the same cannula inserted between the destabilizing fat cells causing their cell membranes rupture, releasing their content, the same as that low pressure sucks through a cannula. In this way ultrasound is used to sculpt the body.
The best candidates for ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) are the same as for suction-assisted liposuction (SAL), who are patients of normal weight, elastic skin and fat accumulation that do not disappear or to the gym or diets with . Choose the ideal method for liposuction depends on surgeon experience and training, both techniques suction assisted both the SAL (conventional) or ultrasound-assisted LAU have advantages over each other and specific to a certain extent are complementary ultimately your surgeon will choose the most suitable for your particular case. Liposculpture Furthermore it is not recommended in patients with systemic diseases, heart, lung, diabetes, and degenerative diseases. The specific complication for the use of ultrasound is the local skin burn, which avoids complications if the surgeon is well trained in their use. Finally, liposculpture is a simple surgical procedure, for patients who have decided to change their lifestyle to a healthier and should therefore be disciplined to be an undertaking, prior to the patient to care for their results by making exercises and diet.
