What is the sound of one's fat zapping? Sound Surgical Technologies knows. The company's medical devices use ultrasound to break up and remove body fat. Sound Surgical's VASER System allows doctors to perform the aesthetic cosmetic surgery known as lipoplasty --or "body contouring"-- without using suction cannulas and limiting post-surgical bruising and pain. The firm markets the VASER System to surgeons, surgery centers, and hospitals through a direct sales force in the US and through distribution agreements elsewhere. Along with its hardware, the company provides marketing tools, training, and other support to medical practice customers. Sound Surgical was acquired by Solta Medical in 2013.
