Body Contouring Benefits of Custom Acoustic Lipo

Unlike traditional liposuction procedures, lasers and ultrasound liposuction devices offer body contouring benefits from a single procedure. Today’s innovative liposuction procedures, including Custom Acoustic Liposuction (CAL), also known as “Tickle Lipo”, helps to sculpt and shape the body after the fat removal process. If you’ve been considering liposuction to get rid of a few inches or unwanted pounds, you may be a good candidate for Custom Acoustic Liposuction.

Here’s a close look at how Custom Acoustic Liposuction works, and what its body contouring benefits are:


How Custom Acoustic Lipo Works

Custom Acoustic Liposuction works with low-frequency acoustic INFRASONIC vibrations that help to remove body fat without affecting the surrounding tissues. It is particularly effective for getting rid of body fat in the back and buttocks, and can provide numerous benefits for both male and female patients. It is performed with a special cannula, that vibrates at a special, low-speed frequency so that it can move easily through the patient’s tissue. The vibrations produced by the cannula occur in a three-dimensional pattern called “nutational vibration”, which causes less trauma to the tissue, and leaves the patient with fewer bruises.

The procedure involves the use of a Turbo Infiltration method, which means better disbursement of the tumescent solution, fast numbing and less discomfort overall.

The entire procedure is performed while the patient is awake, and promises little or no downtime. The cannula stays cool throughout the procedure, which eliminates the risk of thermal injury to the tissue, burns and scarring. Custom Acoustic Liposuction has been cleared by the FDA for the removal of soft tissue and fluid from the body during general surgical procedures, including suction lipoplasty in body contouring.

Body Contouring Benefits of Custom Acoustic Lipo

Since there is no need for general anesthesia with Custom Acoustic Lipo, patients can undergo this procedure on an outpatient basis and go home shortly after the surgery. The procedure can be performed on many different parts of the body, and promises speedy recovery, even on the facial areas. Some of the key benefits of Custom Acoustic Lipo are:

  • Less bruising and swelling than other procedures
  • Short recovery times
  • Lower overall costs – most procedures cost between $2,000 to $4,000 per area
  • Has received FDA approval for bulk fat removal and for body sculpting
  • Reduced risk
  • Less trauma, bruising and swelling
  • Smooth and precise body contouring

Some surgeons find that Custom Acoustic Liposuction allows them to perform detailed body contouring techniques in a very short amount of time. In most cases, patients who undergo traditional liposuction must undergo additional body contouring procedures or body reshaping procedures, such as VelaShape, VelaSmooth or Thermage skin tightening treatments in order to achieve desired results. Since the surgeon can manipulate the body tissues and sculpt the body during the procedure with Custom Acoustic Liposuction, the procedure offers more benefits and may be able to produce better results.
