Melt Fat Away Through Liposelection

From WBAL TV Ultrasound liquefies fat for removal

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- A new medical procedure varies from traditional liposuction in that it liquefies fat, making it easier to remove.

According to a recent NBC report, the procedure, called LipoSelection, costs less than traditional liposuction.

Doctors give the patient a sedative before the procedure; however, the patient remains awake. The doctors numb the area to be treated so the patients are said to not feel any pain.

"It's selective ultrasound, the probes that we use are microcanules -- they're actually smaller, almost the size of a pencil, and at the end, it vibrates," physician's assistant Paul Mallari explained

We liquefy it, and basically, it's like taking lard -- you liquefy it like water and we take a little ... straw-like (instrument to) actually remove the fat," Mallari said
