"The friendliest liposuction resource online..."
When I researched ultrasound liposuction I learned that there is some controversy about the method.
This article discusses both the strengths and the weaknesses of the technique, and attempts to give you some strong guidance in deciding if this type of liposuction is right for you.
Let's not delay one more second
There are some distinct advantages associated with ultrasonic lipo. The following list is by no means an exhaustive one these are the main highlights that I ran across when doing my research for this topic.
In theory this sounds like... "Why would you ever have traditional lipo when you have ultrasonic liposuction?" But in reality there are some significant negatives associated with UAL that we will discuss next.
This isn't a complete list of potential side-effects associated with liposuction. There is a common myth about liposuction and that is, "It's as simple as having your teeth cleaned." It is not. Liposuction is surgery Period and there are risks associated with it.
Ultrasound liposuction is not unlike any other types of plastic surgery. It has both strengths and weaknesses.
Therefore it is your "job" to sort out the benefits and weigh them against the additional risks. Is it better to have ultrasonic liposuction or traditional tumescent lipo?... This question can truly only be answered in front of your surgeon who will have your complete health profile in mind. It could very well be the case the traditional liposuction will accomplish your goals quite nicely. Or perhaps liposuction surgery is not an option for you at all.
The only way to know this for sure is to get proper consultation.
At Letty's Liposuction Directories we really feel that you would do well to be conservative in your approach to plastic surgery in general. Go into it with a level-head. Whenever you are over-zealous in plastic surgery you set yourself up to pay less attention to the details that can ultimately preserve your health and good looks.
Just don't be too hasty.
