RF ultrasound treatment post Lipo. Did I just get ripped off or is this a necessary treatment?

RF or Ultrasound After Liposuction
Ultrasound after liposuction
- It is a little upsetting to have surgery and be told you need to pay more for a good result.
- Ultrasound is not necessary after liposuction.
- It does heat the tissues under the skin - a little heat does little and a lot of heat may damage the tissues.
- But massage does feel good and some of my patients believe it truly speeds up healing.
- A patient recently told me of buying a $15 massager on-line and said it seems to help her swelling a lot.
- You can either rely on your surgeon's advice and go ahead with her/his recommendation or cancel the treatments and just try massage.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
