Aspen Ultrasound Treatment
Richard Hodnett, M.D., F.A.C.S. and Beverly Hills Physicians are proud to offer Aspen Ultrasound Treatment, a proprietary leading edge solution for preventing and treating capsular contracture following a breast augmentation. To help you understand the treatment and how it works, below are answers to the most important questions around this highly effective treatment.
What is Capsular Contracture?
While breast augmentation has been around for decades and has never been more safe and effective, issues do sometimes arise following a procedure, and capsular contracture is one of the most common. The complication occurs when tissue around a breast implant tightens, which causes part or all of the implant to feel harder than normal. In some cases, there may also be some discomfort and the shape of the breast can also be adversely affected.
How does Aspen Ultrasound Treatment Work?
This therapy utilizes the power of inaudible sound waves to increase the blood circulation around the implant, resulting in a loosening and softening of the breast tissue without additional surgery. It’s also highly effective for preventing contracture before it happens. If the patient has not been receiving treatment and notices hardening or other symptoms of contracture, therapy should be started as soon as possible for maximum effectiveness.
Is Aspen Ultrasound Treatment Effective for Other Issues?
Yes! It’s an outstanding post-operative therapy that can improve the healing process, reduce the chances of infections, and prevent bruises. It’s also excellent for reducing discomfort following a procedure without the need for additional medications.
When should I contact Dr. Hodnett and Beverly Hills Physicians about Aspen Ultrasound Treatment?
