Ultra-Z™ Liposculpture by Dr Bianca Cowan

Liposculpture procedures have evolved tremendously and have developed into one of the most popular aesthetic industry procedures. According to the research of Shridharani et al. (2014), these procedures effectively treat localised adipose fat deposits in patients. This study further affirmed that subcutaneous fat often occurs in predictable distributions in both men and women. Due to the disagreeable fat distribution patterns, the Ultra-Z™ system utilises advanced cavitation and emulsification technologies to perform tailor-made liposculpture procedures on any part of the body. At Aesthetica Skin Centre, Dr Bianca Cowan uses the Ultra-Z™ to perform ultrasonic-assisted liposuction procedures. Accordingly, a cannula is connected to a suction-generating device which allows for small incisions to be strategically placed, in view for adequate fat volumes to be removed. This fat removal procedure leads to an improved harmonious balance of a patient’s physique and improved body contour.

Frequently Asked Questions: 

The ideal Ultra-Z™ candidate is already close to a healthy BMI but is battling with stubborn fat deposits which are resistant to diet and/or exercise. The procedure is also for those candidates who are interested in subtle body contouring. A prospective client can book a consultation with Dr Bianca Cowan to discuss the expected results.
Traditional liposuction aggressively removes fat, which is also depended on the surgeon’s experience and skills. Surrounding tissues can be damaged and there is a longer recovery period with swelling and bruising. Results with the old traditional liposuction could be uneven with loose skin afterwards. Ultra-Z™ system gently removes fat and can be aspirated easily without damages to other important tissues, nerves and blood vessels. The procedure can be done with a local anaesthesia with minimal downtime afterwards. The Ultra-Z™ Liposculpture have efficient results, because there is less bleeding, pain, swelling and bruising.
The procedure uses ultrasonic energy to effectively break down unwanted fat in the face and body. The doctor uses a method called aspiration to remove the liquidised fat, which is a suction technique to remove volumes of fat. A local anaesthetic is used on the treatment area and a small incision will be made through the skin by the doctor. A cannula is inserted through the skin and a probe is used to emulsify the fatty tissue. The emulsified fat cells are then suctioned out via the small cannula. The actual procedure could take between 1 to 2 hours.
The patient needs to rest for an hour following the procedure. Normal activities can usually resume the following day. It is best to avoid rigorous physical activity for 1 to 2 weeks after the procedure. The doctor will prescribe antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medicines after the procedure. It will be crucial for the patient to wear a compression garment, as recommended by the doctor. Dr Bianca Cowan generally recommends that patients with skin laxity undergo additional skin tightening procedures like the Velashape™III or Exilis™. However, speedy recovery of patients are usually expected, thanks to this minimally invasive procedure.
