The cost of ecah of these two external ultrasound liposuction machine to the surgeon is $80,000—but they will finance!
If I were to buy every piece of medical technology that comes through the door, I would end up spending around a million dollars a year! That much for technology that is scientifically unproven, based on claims that are dubious if not false, hawked by salespeople working on commission and supported by TV news shows and unknown plastic surgeons trying to get a news story.
Nobody in that mix seems to care about the patients who are going to be sold expensive, ineffective or at least pathetic treatments that will leave them unsatisfied with their cosmetic surgery experience and make all plastic surgeons look bad.
I’m not saying there is no future for this type of technology. I’m just saying we should evaluate new technologies in a proper scientific manner in clinical trials before companies and marketing firms bring them in haste and unproven to market. Medicine and business are just not a good mix, as we all know.
So here we are 10 years later and guess what…. it’s gone! No one talks about it anymore- What happened?
