Common Applications of Diagnostic Ultrasound
The use of ultrasound in plastic surgery is proven to improve procedural outcomes, minimize complications and enable comprehensive follow-up, enhancing confidence and the overall patient experience. It is routinely used for examining breast implant integrity, evaluating and treating seromas, TAP and PECS blocks, and safe BBL fat grafting. It's also used to detect deep venous thrombosis and for targeted guidance for patients undergoing abdominal liposuction. Clarius delivers high resolution imaging in a dedicated high-frequency scanner to speed diagnosis, guide procedures and reduce risk.

"I have been performing ultrasound in our office for over 6 years and it has always seemed so complicated because of the type of ultrasound. If you're not trained on how to use the systems, it can be very overwhelming. Well, Clarius has fixed that through their software, which allows you to just pick the area you are working on and it automates the settings for you. It's handheld…simply perfect for what we do. I now carry it in my coat pocket during clinic and there's no more guessing or needless needle sticks if there is a seroma after a tummy tuck or lipo. Also, I now know for sure if I'm dealing with a ruptured silicone implant before surgery."
