Can You Get Better Results Using Ultrasound After Smart Lipo?

I had Smart Lipo few days ago. I'm doing great with hardly any brusing and moderate swelling. I was told I can get better permanent results if I do ultrasound after two weeks? My MD told me to massage the area to reduce swelling. Would ultrasound make a difference on final body contour results?
