Have you heard of ultrasound cavitation or ultrasonic cavitation liposuction? It's a popular fat reduction procedure that is used all over the world. This method uses ultrasound technology to break down the fat cells located beneath the skin. Unlike traditional liposuction, it is claimed to be less invasive and more effective. 

The process involves using ultrasonic vibrations to apply pressure on the fat cells, which causes them to break down into a liquid form. The body then eliminates these broken-down fat cells through urine. Essentially, the fat cells move towards the liver where they are excreted as waste. 

This non-invasive method is the preferred choice when it comes to eliminating body fat. It is often used in conjunction with other weight loss programs to target stubborn fat in specific areas of the body. However, it's important to note that your body fat can return if you consume too many calories and don't stick to your diet plan. 

Are you interested in learning more about cavitation liposuction? Let's dive into the world of this fat reduction technique together.

What is ultrasonic cavitation Liposuction treatment?

What is ultrasonic cavitation Liposuction treatment?

Ultrasonic cavitation, also known as ultrasonic lipolysis, is a non-surgical method of contouring the body and eliminating excess fat deposits beneath the skin. It is sometimes referred to as Liponix or Ultrashape. Compared to surgical alternatives like liposuction, ultrasonic cavitation is a safer choice. During this procedure, fat cells are disrupted by ultrasound waves and then absorbed by the lymphatic system. It is important to note that ultrasonic cavitation is not the same as ultrasound liposuction, as it does not require incisions, making the recovery process much simpler. Despite all the advantages of Ultrasonic Lipolysis, the final result may not be immediately visible following treatment.


Who is the best candidate for Ultrasonic Cavitation?

Who is the best candidate for Ultrasonic Cavitation

•    Being in a very well overall health
•    Not smoke
•    Have a realistic expectation
•    Be Overweight, with a weight of at least 15 pounds over the BMI (Body mass index)
Please note that Ultrasonic Lipolysis targets only small areas of the body to give you a better shape and help contour the body, but it’s not a suitable method for individuals who want to lose weight.
Although the effectiveness of ultrasonic cavitation works is still up for debate, there are significant pieces of evidence supporting this claim as one of the best methods for body contouring.

Who can’t go for ultrasonic cavitation?

Ultrasonic cavitation may not be suitable for the following people:
•    Those with metal prostheses, IUDs, or any other foreign object inside their body
•    People under 18 years old
•    People above 55 years old
•    Those who consume anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant drugs
•    People who suffer from depression or other mental illnesses
•    Those with tattoos on their body
•    People with keloid scars
Important note: If you’re taking medications or have a special medical condition, consult your doctor before undergoing Ultrasonic Lipolysis.

Which Parts of the Body Are Treated Well By Ultrasonic Cavitation?

Which Parts of the Body Are Treated Well By Ultrasonic Cavitation
•    Belly
•    Hip
•    The arms
•    Thigh areas
•    Areas with suitable fat tissue density, such as under the breast and the neck

How Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Work?

You’ll need first to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist or beauty specialist. We can guarantee that you will find the best dermatologists in Iran.
The procedure is relatively simple. Depending on the areas you want to be treated, your doctor may ask you to remove your clothing and wear a special garment. This is because of the visibility of the fat tissue that requires intervention may vary depending on the clothing worn by the patient. In some clothing, the fat may appear more prominent, while in others, it may appear less noticeable than its actual size.
After disinfecting the targeted area with alcohol, the ultrasonic cavitation device is gently applied to the specific part of the body using a handpiece.
During the procedure, the patient may feel a warming sensation and hear the buzzing sound from the device. The treatment typically lasts between 40 minutes and a little more than an hour.
Numerous studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of this treatment in reducing fat tissue in target areas of the body.
Lastly, it’s important to note that this treatment is one of the most effective methods for eliminating fat tissue in the fibrotic areas of the body, such as the sides, back, abdomen, and chest.

The Side Effect of Ultrasonic Cavitation

When performed by a qualified dermatologist, Ultrasonic Cavitation is a safe and non-invasive method for body contouring and fat reduction. However, like other treatments, it may have some side effects, including:
• Redness of the treated area
• Bruising
• Headaches
• In some cases, if the treatment is not done correctly, lumps and uneven ridges may appear in the skin due to the uneven breakdown of fat. This issue can usually be resolved with subsequent treatments.

The Benefits of Ultrasonic Cavitation Liposuction

The Benefits of Ultrasonic Cavitation Liposuction
•    Reduce fat tissue and circumference in the treated area
•    Reduce lumpiness and fat deposits
•    Blast visceral fat
•    Body contouring
Other benefits
Here are some of the other benefits of ultrasonic cavitation:


Ultrasonic Lipolysis requires no incision, which means there are no scars on your skin and no downtime. Even the best anesthesiologists in the world can’t guarantee you won’t face complications down the road. While in ultrasonic cavitation, you have a piece of mind the side effect won’t occur post-operation.
With Ultrasonic Lipolysis, you can have peace of mind knowing that post-operative side effects are unlikely to occur.
The entire procedure time usually takes as little as one hour, and you can immediately back to your routine life.
Selective targets problem areas
 With the use of ultrasonic cavitation, you can target small regions of your body that need special attention.


Unlike other cosmetic fat reduction like traditional liposuction, this procedure is a painless and relaxing experience.

No downtime

Immediately after the procedure, you can back to your routine life, so you don’t need to take off of work or miss a beat to recover.

Expectations After the Treatment

After the treatment, you will be able to stand on your feet and resume your routine life. Pain and bruising are typically not significant. However, we recommend you keep your body hydrated to easily eliminate fat cells through the lymphatic system.
Please note that you won’t see the result immediately after the procedure. After the treatment, your body may feel puffy or swollen. It takes time for your body to eliminate and slough off the broken fat cells.
To see noticeable results, you may need to repeat the treatment. On average, people need 2 to 6 sessions to see results.
Most individuals can see the result after 6 to 12 months following the procedure.
The result is permanent if patients maintain a suitable diet and exercise routine. However, if you have a less-active lifestyle, there’s a high possibility of fat tissue re-accumulating.

Caring Before Ultrasonic Cavitation

Before undergoing the treatment, consider the following points:

•    Stop taking any herbal or other supplements, or any medication under the supervision of your doctor
•     Avoid consuming alcohol and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, at least 48 hours before the procedure
•    Drink plenty of water before and after the procedure, as water can help you get rid of broken fat cells.
•    Don’t Consume any food or drink within 2 hours before the treatment

Post-operative Care After Ultrasonic Cavitation

To achieve the best possible result, stick to your doctor’s instructions after ultrasonic cavitation. They will typically tailor the treatment to your body shape and provide you with a suitable diet to follow post-procedure.
The most important post-operative care includes:

•    Drinking plenty of water to get rid of broken cell fats and toxins from your body
•    Following a healthy diet
•    Being active, as it can help you tighten your skin and make weight loss easier
•    Avoid consuming alcohol, as it can hinder fat cells elimination from the body
•    Gently massaging the treated areas
•     Avoiding sunbathing or using a solarium for at least one week after the procedure

Ultrasonic Cavitation VS. CoolSculpting

Ultrasonic Cavitation VS. CoolSculpting

Both are a form of non-invasive body contouring used for reducing fat and creating a slimmer silhouette. Both are safer and less invasive than traditional liposuction but are not intended for weight loss.
Ultrasonic cavitation is used for eliminating fat cells by applying ultrasound frequencies, whereas, CoolSculpting relies on the body’s natural response to cold temperatures to get rid of fat cells.
Generally speaking, CoolSculpting is more expensive than ultrasonic cavitation and may require more time in the doctor’s office.

What is the difference between RF and Ultrasonic Cavitation?

What is the difference between RF and Ultrasonic Cavitation
Both RF (radiofrequency) and ultrasonic cavitation are non-invasive treatments used for body contouring and fat reduction. Radiofrequency (RF) is a high-frequency electrical current that improves skin tightening and also targets cellulite or visceral body fat deposits.
Ultrasonic cavitation, on the other hand, is high-frequency sounds, targeting cellulite or visceral body fat in some parts of the body. Both procedures are relatively painless, non-invasive, and don’t require anesthesia or incisions.
While both methods are effective for body contouring, they work in different ways and may be used for different purposes. Your doctor is the only one who can recommend you the best treatment that suits your particular needs.

Bottom line

In conclusion, ultrasonic cavitation is a safe and effective method that can help you contour your body, reduce cellulite, and improve overall skin tightening. It’s a method with minimal downtime and can reduce 1-2 cm in circumference after one session.
