Ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL) is an important adjunctive technique to traditional lipoplasty that permits true circumferential body contouring of the trunk and thighs. Its effectiveness is realized in those patients demonstrating diminished skin tone, skin irregularities, and fibrous areas of lipodystrophy. Patient evaluation and selection, indications for UAL, and operative strategy beginning with the initial consultation are discussed.
