Even after dieting and exercising, it is common for women and men to have stubborn fat deposits. Liposuction can be the solution. Dr. Popowich offers both ultrasound and power-assisted liposuction.
Power-assisted liposuction removes fat cells by using a small tube (called a cannula) that vibrates at a rapid speed. This method removes fat while leaving surrounding tissue, blood vessels, and nerves unaffected. The vibrating cannula helps to break up fat cells in the targeted area for a smooth body contour.
Ultrasonic liposuction works by using a cannula that emits high-energy sound waves. These waves help to liquefy fat cells, making them easier to remove using traditional suction-assisted liposuction. This liposuction technique is particularly helpful in removing fat adjacent to fibrous tissue.
