DONALD J. CAPUANO, M.D.
Plastic Surgeon

- INTERNAL ULTRASONIC LIPOSUCTION -

Dr. Capuano has been involved with liposuction since its development in the early 1980s and introduced the technique to the Rochester area. Various refinements and the relative safety of the procedure over the years have made liposuction the most frequently performed and one of the safest operative procedure by Surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (Plastic Surgeons).

The original ultrasonic devices have been used since 1988 in Europe to assist in the removal of fat. These these devices involved the induction of ultrasonic energy by means of a probe or cannula beneath the skin. The devices required high levels of technology and engineering and were at first associated with very significant problems. Such problems as severe scaring, burns, etc. were not seen with traditional liposuction. Even in the very best and most experienced hands, significant complications seemed to occur now and then even after many years of experience using probe ultrasonic machines.

Because of the potential complications, the ASPRS mandated (almost) that its members attend a hands on course. Dr Capuano attended this course in 1997 and Unity purchased this expensive equipment.

- EXTERNAL ULTRASONIC LIPOSUCTION -

Recently there has been developed what Dr. Capuano sees as a safe and reliable method of external ultrasonically assisted liposuction or EUAL. The newest method of UAL involves the delivery of ultrasonic energy through the skin at a particular frequency. The technique uses tumescent fluid with a patented high frequency (ultrasound) to transmit the energy needed to effect fatty tissue removal. Tumescent fluid has been routinely used for many years during liposuction. The delivery of ultrasound for therapy and diagnostic purposes has been available for many years as well. Combining the tumescent technique with a patented ultrasonic frequency and power, allows a safe ultrasonic treatment of the fat without direct contact of a probe or cannula on the tissue cells. The newest system combines the tumescent technique, temperature monitoring, and non- invasive ultrasonic treatment.

Dr. Capuano has evaluated several of the existing methods of ultrasonic liposuction. He has attended lectures on ultrasonic assisted lipoplasty (UAL) in both the US and Canada. He has used many of the currently available ultrasonic machines during 'hands on' demonstrations and observed surgery using UAL devices. He has seen the results of the originator of the probe/cannula technique, Dr. Zocci of Turin, Italy. Dr. Zocci is credited with development and refinement of the technique. Dr. Capuano initially decided that the probe cannula method carried a significant potential for problems. He initially began using the EUL (external ultrasonic liposuction) equipment - or the Silberg method. This method has been demonstrated and discussed at plastic surgical meetings as well as on the national media by its originator, Dr. Silberg, as well as by Dr. Ellenbogen, of Santa Monica California.
