Do you have stubborn areas of fat that are difficult to lose with diet and exercise alone? Vaser Lipo is a body contouring alternative that is growing in popularity for its ability to create maximum results with a simple, minimally invasive procedure.
Vaser Lipo has been shown to create results that are equal to traditional liposuction methods without the post-treatment discomfort or downtime.
What is Vaser Lipo?
Vaser ultrasonic liposuction was introduced in the early 2000’s. It is designed to remove fat and has been approved by the FDA. The procedure is performed by injecting a saline solution that is mixed with anesthetic into the patient. Then, a thin cannula that emits a high-frequency ultrasound vibration is used to target fat cells and break them apart.
The ultrasonic vibrations cause the fat cells to dislodge from the body, and then these fat cells dissolve and are removed from the body through safe vacuum suction. Some of the local anesthetic that was injected stays in the body and helps to reduce any post-treatment discomfort that patients may feel once the procedure has been completed.
What are the Benefits of Vaser Lipo?
Patients and doctors often consider this procedure to be a gentler alternative to traditional liposuction. The advanced techniques used in this procedure allow our medical team to have greater control over the treatment area, creating a smoother result that provides the patient with the trimmer, fitter appearance they desire.
One of the benefits of Vaser liposuction is while it attacks the fat cells in the body; it does not damage the surrounding vital tissues or nerves. The saline solution that is injected at the beginning of the procedure minimizes bleeding and can reduce post-treatment bruising.
What Can Vaser Lipo Treat?
Vaser liposuction was designed especially to treat areas such as the abdomen, love handles, and thighs. Since this is a targeted procedure, it can safely be used on more sensitive parts of the body including the chest, face, and neck.
What Can I Expect During Vaser Lipo?
This procedure is performed at our office under the professional guidance of our medical team. During the procedure, the patient is made comfortable, and all necessary incisions will be carefully made to minimize visible scarring. The liposuction procedure will be performed so that the patient experiences as little post-treatment discomfort as possible.
Some mild soreness and bruising are common after Vaser Lipo, which should subside within a day or so. Our medical team will advise you of any aftercare that is necessary, and the full results of your procedure should be visible after the initial healing process.
