Definition of Liposuction, ultrasonic-assisted

Liposuction, ultrasonic-assisted: A form of liposuction in which the cannula is energized with ultrasonic energy to assist in the breakdown of fat tissue. This technique has an advantage in areas of scar tissue, such as the male breast, the back, and areas where liposuction has been performed before. Its disadvantages include the need for longer incisions in the skin, a potential for skin or internal burns, greater cost, and a longer time needed to complete the procedure. See also 'liposuction.
