b Department of Plastic Surgery , College of Medicine, Kyung Hee University , Seoul , Republic of Korea.

Gynecomastia is characterized by the benign proliferation of breast tissue in men. Herein, we present a new method for the treatment of gynecomastia, using ultrasound-assisted liposuction with both conventional and reverse-cutting edge tip cannulas in combination with a pull-through lipectomy technique with pituitary forceps through a single transaxillary incision. Thirty patients were treated with this technique at the author's institution from January 2010 to January 2015. Read More

Histologic effects of external ultrasound-assisted lipectomy on adipose tissue.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2008 Jan 20;32(1):111-5. Epub 2007 Sep 20.

Department of Orthopedic, Traumatologic, Rehabilitative, and Plastic Reconstructive Sciences, Second University of Naples, School of Medicine and Surgery, via L. De Crecchio 3, 80138 Napoli, Italy.

This study aimed to observe the effects of ultrasound waves at different frequencies on abdominal fat tissue. External ultrasound-assisted lipectomy (XUAL) via both histologic and immunohistochemic examinations was used to assess adipose tissue alterations, including cells and collagenic fibers. The results, at the immunofluorescence level, show that ultrasound used at 1 MHz with a potency of 3 W resulted in no alterations or only limited cell destruction with collagen fibers intact.

External ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty from our own experience.

F H Mendes

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2000 Jul-Aug;24(4):270-4

External ultrasound-assisted liposuction (XUAL) is a new technique that requires traditional aspirative liposuction after the application of high frequency ultrasonic fields delivered through the skin into a wetted tissue. Initial data suggest that it has some advantages over the traditional procedure, especially regarding the achievement of less traumatic surgery with superior clinical outcome. This preliminary report describes a comparative study between conventional liposuction and the external ultrasound-assisted technique as the modality of treatment for fat deposits in 65 bilateral anatomical areas.

Comparative lipoplasty analysis of in vivo-treated adipose tissue.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2000 May;105(6):2152-8; discussion 2159-60

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, 75390-9132, USA.

A comparative histologic and chemical analysis was undertaken of adipose tissue treated in vivo with traditional, ultrasound-assisted, and external ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty. A series of six healthy women undergoing elective liposuction according to the superwet technique using a 1:1 infiltration ratio with the estimated quantity of fat to be removed was included in the study. Four separate regions on each patient were treated independently in vivo with traditional liposuction, internal ultrasound-assisted liposuction, or external ultrasound-assisted liposuction for 7 minutes.

Dermatol Surg 2000 Apr;26(4):329-32

Division of Dermatologic Surgery, Cooper Hospital University Health System, Marlton, New Jersey, USA.

Background: Use of high-intensity, high-frequency external ultrasound before liposuction has been reported to enhance the ease of fat extraction, increase the amount of fat extracted, and decrease patient discomfort during liposuction.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of application of high-intensity continuous wave ultrasound to extremely low-intensity ultrasound (placebo) prior to tumescent liposuction.

Methods: A total of 19 patients (25 sites) completed the double-blind study. Read More
