Recent studies have shown quicker healing, less post-operative discomfort, and smoother results by doing 4-6 ultrasound treatments after liposuction. This will help expedite the healing process of any excess bruising and swelling. These treatments are generally started three to four days following the operation. They take ten to twenty minutes (depending on the number of areas treated). A wand is massaged over the treated area, releasing deep, soothing heat and ultrasonic waves. There is a $75 charge per treatment (at least four ultrasound treatments are recommended). If you are interested in ultrasound therapy, we invite you to give our Atlanta area office a call to learn more.
