Histologic changes with breast ultrasound-assisted liposuction

Abstract

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) has been used in breast reduction and for dense, fibrous breasts and gynecomastia. Studies were done histologically on the breast tissue. UAL of the breast should be a safe procedure. Its histologic effects are identical to those caused by electrocautery devices and electrocautery use. The subsequent tissue damage is well tolerated and has no long-term risks.
