In Japan, there are few patients who desire liposuction even if they say slimming surgery, and if possible, they seem to be interested in partial slimming by laser or injection. Also, even with cases with a lot of fat and non-invasive methods that can hardly be treated, it may be giving the impression that ultrasound or liposuction using internal laser is better.
In the United States where the aesthetic medicine is advanced, there are still many methods of liposuction using old-fashioned hands (more than 250,000 cases per year), and there are not many methods using laser or ultrasound in combination. There may be reasons for this, and may have been written before, but in such a way, many burns (burns) due to the heat of the tip of the equipment have been reported, especially for patients with not much fat It is getting not used. Considering Japanese patients with American standards, there are not many people with a lot of fat, so it is our thoughts of our hospital that it is better not to use these devices.
