What are the benefits of U.A.L?
There are several essential benefits of choosing UAL for your liposuction procedure, including:
- Promotes optimum skin retraction
- Does not heat or destroy the fat cells
- Minimizes blood lost during surgery
- Allows for more fat subtraction
- Less pain and minimal bruising, if any
- Smaller incisions
- Faster recovery of 2 to 5 days
How long has Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction been used by Beverly Hills plastic surgeons?
Once the UAL has liquefied the fat cells, Dr. Aboolian then uses small tubes called cannulas to minimize the emulsified fat with suction. The result is a highly selective process of fat abstraction that is gentler both on the patient and the doctor.
Can UAL be used during other procedures?
Dr. Aboolian may recommend this technology for a variety of procedures in body contouring, such as with abdominoplasty, body lift, neck contouring and upper arm tightening.
What parts of the body can be treated?
Nearly any body area can be contoured with liposuction. For more details, see the liposuction page of this site.
How much fat can be minimized with UAL?
Safe liposuction has limits to the volume of fat that can be extracted. The general guideline is to assume the surgery can remove any loose, hanging fat that is present on the body. Liposuction is not designed for weight loss, but for selectively targeting stubborn fat pockets.
