Dr. Vitolo loves using the external ultrasonic-assisted liposculpture technique precisely because it delivers excellent results without creating as much bruising as with traditional liposuction.
In this procedure, Dr. Vitolo injects a fluid into the areas he wishes to treat (saline + anesthetic) as most plastic surgeons do, but instead of beginning the liposculpture, he applies ultrasonic energy through the skin to the areas that he will re-countour. The ultrasonic energy is transmitted through the skin, not damaging it, and softens and semi-liquefies the fat. Once this step is completed, he begins liposculpting the areas. Since the fat is now in a semi-liquid state, he does not have to forcefully break up the fat, but he simply removes it with very fine cannulas with suction. The ultrasound also serves to decrease bleeding and causes the skin to contract better after the procedure.
When the best contour is achieved, Dr. Vitolo molds the body by applying white foam tapes to the areas suctioned. This serves to keep the new shape stabilized during healing and importantly, prevent bruising! The tapes are removed after 2 days and normally there is minimal or no bruising.
Dr. Vitolo’s years of liposuction experience enables him to aesthetically contour your body fat to achieve your desired results.
