A RevolutionaryDevice Offering Better Results
At the beginning, Ultrasonic Surgical Cavitation Systems were only used for body-contouring purposes and then for breast reduction, neck-chin debulking and contouring, circumferential thigh liposuction, and lastly axillary hyperhidrosis treatment, just to mention a few of the potential applications of this sophisticated device. Recently, the application of Macadam™ Lipo Ultrasonic Surgical Cavitation System has been used for fat harvesting and autologous fat transfer (AFT) for breast enlargement and contouring and adipose-derived stem cell treatments.
Macadam™ Lipo Ultrasonic Surgical Cavitation System is indicated for use in surgical
procedures where fragmentation, emulsification resection and aspiration of soft and hard tissues are required in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery. The ultrasonic system is designed to enable the user to remove tissue from stem cells and other growth cells based on ultrasonic cavitation principle that is basically mechanical shear. The vibration at the tip of the probe distrupt the adipose tissue in order to separate stem cells from the fat tissue structure. After centrifugation of collected adipose tissue, stem cells are seperated, namely stromal vascular fraction cells, and analyzed for their quality (cell count, viability, endotoxin, gram stain) before transplantation.
Ultrasonic surgery is realized between 25-36 kHz. In principle, the outlet voltage is supplied at 50 to 60 hertz. The generator boosts the frequency to 54-56 K hertz. The resulting ultrasonic frequency is delivered into the handpiece and amplified to the motion. After activation, the probe can vibrate 25.000-36.000 strokes per second and results in cavitation which is basically, the formation of microbubbles at the tip of the probe. The low frequency ultrasonic energy has ability to collect stem cells and other growth cell with adipose tissue.
