Ultrasound guided Liposuction

Liposuction is made to shape the body and make it more carved. In this aspect doctors need an efficient ultrasound machine to help them in this surgery.

Ultrasound imaging has proven to be useful in reconstructive surgery for identification of perforators for a variety of flaps,including the anterolateral thigh flap, and the deep inferior epigastric perforator flap.

Which ultrasound scanner is used for Liposuction?

To screen patients for abdominal wall defects before liposuction or abdominoplasty the physician needs a Color Doppler ultrasound scanner with a wide range of depth the SIFULTRAS-5.42.

This type of cosmetic surgery needs an ultrasound with high-intensity and high-frequency to select the fats. Ultrasound scans are highly accurate, noninvasive, and well-tolerated by patients.

Patients undergoing abdominal liposuction and/or abdominoplasty have to be scanned for any possible abdominal wall defects such as possible hernias. Further, early detection of deep venous thromboses is possible. Unnecessary anticoagulation may be avoided. Subclinical abdominal defects may be detected. 

In addition to early detection of DVTs, ultrasound screening may also help to prevent another rare but devastating complication—visceral perforation. Ultrasound evaluation is particularly important in patients with previous abdominal surgery and scarring. In the author’s practice, all patients undergoing liposuction and abdominoplasty are screened preoperatively using ultrasound.

Needless to mention that the value of “point of care” diagnosis has been recognized. Making the diagnosis in the plastic surgery office expedites patient treatment and reduces  the inconvenience and expense of a patient visit to a hospital radiology department.

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction is performed by abdominoplasty doctors, cosmetic and plastic surgeons..
