Assisted Liposuction

Laser and Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (Lipoplasty)

ELITE adopted the latest in liposuction. Elite is the only center in Jordan to have all modalities of liposuction, from traditional to ultrasonic and laser liposuction. Dr ELMUSA is fully trained plastic surgeon with experience in traditional, ultrasonic and laser liposuction. Dr ELMUSA will select the appropriate modality or combination of modalities and technique according to the customer need.


Assisted Liposuction

Laser and ultrasound assisted liposuction, like traditional liposuction are not a weight control method or a fix for obesity. They are used to help contour your body in those areas that are not responsive to diet and exercise

Laser assisted liposuction takes advantage of the power and technology associated with medical laser beams to liquefy the fat, which is then sucked out of the area.

Ultrasound assisted liposuction uses a special cannula that vibrates very rapidly and gives off ultrasound energy. As the cannula passes through the fat cells, that energy liquefies the fat cells, which are then suctioned out. The ultrasound can be administered either above the skin (with a special emitter) or below the surface of the skin (with an ultrasound cannula).


What are the advantages of assisted liposuction?

Laser or ultrasonic liposuction may offer some advantages, such as:

  •  local rather than general anesthesia
  •  less trauma to the site, less pain, less bruises.
  •  tightening of the overlying skin
  •  smoother skin  and treats cellulite.
  •  improves stretch marks
  •  no to minimal blood loss.
  •  less down time, activities (work) possible at the same day.
  •  faster healing
  •  smaller incisions.


What happens during assisted liposuction?

Laser liposuction

Laser liposuction focuses low-energy waves delivered by a thin laser fiber that's inserted through small incisions. The laser energy is focused on the part of the body where you'd like to have a fatty pocket removed. After the fat is melted, a small cannula is used to suck out the liquefied fat.

Ultrasound assisted liposuction

The fat is dissolved by the ultrasonic waves that are emitted from the end of a cannula that's inserted through small incisions. Ultrasonic waves delivered through the cannula emulsify or liquefy the fat. After the fat is liquefied, it is then sucked out through a small cannula.


How is my recovery ?

You'll probably be a little swollen for a few days following laser or ultrasonic liposuction. Pain is not an issue in laser liposuction.

 Your doctor may advise you to wear a special compression garment to speed healing. Everyone's recovery is slightly different, but most people are able to return to work within a few days.

In the long term

As you recover you'll notice that your skin may begin to tighten as the new layers of skin form. This firming may continue for up to six months after your procedure.

These techniques remove fat cells that are not recreated. If you should gain weight, it's likely that fatty deposits will not expand in the areas where the procedure was performed.


What are the risks?

Risks of assisted liposuction/ lipolysis are minimal.

The most common potential complications of assited liposuction include:

  • Bruising
  • Infection

  • Minimal bleeding

  • Numbness

  • Skin burns
  • Swelling.

When choosing a plastic surgeon for laser liposuction, remember that ELITE has it all : the surgeon's experience and the latest up-to-date machines and technologies.
