How Is VASER Lipo Different From Traditional Liposuction?

If you want to have a lean, sculpted body and have been exercising and following a strict diet, you are on the right path. Weight training and strength training exercises can build muscles and shape the body. However, it can seem like the body sometimes has a mind of its own. You might find that you’re still not achieving the figure you have been striving to attain. A new and innovative liposuction technique called VASER Lipo® can do an even better job of body sculpting than traditional liposuction. Let’s go over the traditional liposuction procedure first to make the benefits of VASER® procedures evident.

Traditional Liposuction

There are several forms and techniques of traditional liposuction. However, the process is generally still the same. The part of the patient’s body the operation will be performed on is marked and general anesthesia is given. A suction tube called a cannula that is attached to a vacuum-like device is used to suck out the fat deposits. Upon awakening, the patient have to wear a special garment around the treated area to add firm but gentle pressure in order to encourage and guide the healing process.

The VASER Lipo® Procedure

The VASER Lipo® procedure is a minimally-invasive form of liposuction that uses ultrasound waves to destroy unwanted fat deposits. VASER is an acronym for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. There are a few different branded forms of ultrasonic liposuction and VASER® is first-rate.

Because of the ability to target precise areas of the body with ultrasound technology, we can shape our clients’ bodies in specific ways that are not possible with traditional liposuction. It provides us the ability to target the fat cells without disturbing other forms of tissue. Our surgeons inject a special saline solution mixed with an anesthetic to dull the pain into the areas of the body we treat.

Our physicians can depend on the gentle, precise, and powerful ultrasound energy to treat areas of the body like the neck, thighs, and arms. These are areas of the body that most people don’t associate with liposuction procedures. With the help of ultrasonic probes, the fat cells are targeted and broken down into liquid form for easy removal with a specially-designed cannula. Our patient will still have some of the anesthetic in their system after the procedure to continue relieving any discomfort.

The benefits of VASER Lipo® vs traditional liposuction are obvious:

  • High satisfaction rate after just one procedure.
  • Easier and more precise removal of large and small fat deposits.
  • Draws attention to muscular formations thanks to improved body contouring capabilities.
  • Faster recovery time due to less physical trauma.
