Word is spreading fast and patients are asking for this latest form of liposuction -- Nutational 3-D Custom Acoustic Liposuction (CAL) at Barone Plastic Surgery.

Sara, a 27 year old person who works full time in the medical field wanted to get rid of the extra fat around her love handles and her knees, but wanted to return to work the very next day. A friend of hers had just undergone a new type of liposuction procedure at Dr. Constance Barone’s Plastic Surgery Practice in San Antonio, Texas and she was ecstatic over the results so Sara decided to go see Dr. Barone to find out more about this new form of liposuction.

"Patient care is my number one concern and when a new technology becomes available, I investigate the product thoroughly, said Dr. Constance Barone. This new type of liposuction is FDA cleared and has been proven to be safe and effective in clinical studies. It has been used in Europe to treat thousands of patients and is now becoming the most popular form of liposuction in the U.S. This technology is advanced in that the Cannula on the 3-D Custom Acoustic Liposuction System, which is the part that is inserted through the dermis then positioned down to the subcutaneous (fat) layer, vibrates and rotates allowing me to glide through the fat much more easily. I am able to get very close to the outer dermis layer of the skin, where those dimples are and remove them without harming the skin. It enables me to treat those tough areas that I was unable to treat with other liposuction systems".

About Custom Acoustic Liposuction:
Custom Acoustic Liposuction is safer for the patient for several reasons. The system includes an automatic shut off when it senses a change in tissue density (non-fatty tissue), protecting surrounding anatomy. And, unlike other liposuction systems, the Custom Acoustic Liposuction system uses a no heat cannula which when inserted into the fatty tissue does not heat or burn the surrounding tissue or anatomy. This no heat cannula also preserves the fat allowing for secondary fat transfer cosmetic procedures.

This new type of liposuction allows for better precision in difficult to treat areas (neck, face, back and ankles) and areas of great fibrosis (secondary procedures, scarring, prior liposuction, and gynecomastia).

CAL differs from other liposuction in that it utilizes a cannula activated by air pressure forming a Nutational 3-D triple movement of vibration, rotation and reciprocation. This method removes fat more efficiently, safely and effectively than other techniques, respecting the non-fatty tissues and surrounding anatomy. This allows precise body sculpting with less patient trauma, reduction of edema, bruising and less discomfort. The fat is suctioned simultaneously during the process with fewer cannula passes, shortening the procedure time.

Custom Acoustic Liposuction is the most recent form of liposuction offered in the United States. Known as Nutational Infrasonic Liposuction in Europe, it was first introduced in Belgium and has been used in thousands of procedures and presented at more than 100 scientific sessions worldwide since 1997.

CAL is FDA cleared for the removal of soft tissue and fluid from the body during general surgical procedures including suction lipoplasty for aesthetic body contouring. CAL is distributed in the United States by Medical Alliance Services,, and (866) 981-5017.
