Description: Liposuction is the most commonly performed aesthetic surgery procedure in the world. Despite its popularity, the effectiveness of this procedure has been limited in fibrous areas of the body such as the back, flank, and breasts (in cases of gynecomastia).Ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL) permits the selective removal of adipose tissue using ultrasonic energy as an airbrush to sculpt fat with less trauma and enhanced artistry. It is the ideal complement to standard liposuction and is a means of optimizing results for a broad spectrum of patients. This technique has captured the imagination of aesthetic surgeons and their patients around the world.Some of the benefits of UAL include: Higher effectiveness in areas where fat is fibrous and difficult to remove by traditional liposuction and for large-volume liposuctionLess surgeon fatigue, allowing the surgeon to focus on true sculpting in body contouringLess tissue trauma because less force is needed to push the cannula through tissueThe authors have taken an anatomic approach to UAL, covering the special needs of each target area. This comprehensive book/DVD combination takes you through UAL step-by-step, including the basics of getting started and the setup of instrumentation and equipment. The large number of illustrations in the book and the high-quality surgical video demonstrations make it easy to follow the procedures closely. Special focus is given to safety and unusual situations.UAL is a great way to gain incremental income from your practice and to stay competitive. No aesthetic surgeon should be without this valuable book and DVD.
