External Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction - XUAL/EUAL

Find Cosmetic Surgery Clinics »

XUAL was championed in the past as a new, non-invasive form of liposuction that would require no surgery to aid fat cell breakdown.  Ultra-sound waves were blasted into the areas that required treatment, and the fat cells would burst, making them easy to absorb by the body.  Unfortunately in early usage there were many problems mostly involving skin burning, and as a result the practice of XUAL is currently not in use.  Until there has been further research done there will be no more XUAL with medical assurance or approval.
