VASER® Lipo is an FDA-approved liposuction system that breaks fat cells apart with the use of ultrasound or sound energy before they are removed from the body. Our team at Medical Aesthetics of New England offers this to patients who are at an average weight but have fat deposits that won’t go away with diet and exercise.
Benefits of VASER® Lipo Over the Traditional Liposuction Technique
While both VASER® and the standard liposuction procedure remove fat deposits, the former is a gentler technique because it loosens the fat cells prior to their extraction. Hence, you can expect less trauma and side effects. The high-frequency ultrasound vibration emitted by VASER® Lipo has been calibrated to loosen the fat without affecting the surrounding tissue, particularly the blood vessels and skin.
Furthermore, the technology gives doctors more control during the procedure, which in turn promotes a smoother skin surface. Forceful extraction of fat, which may be an issue with the standard liposuction technique, may lead to increased risk of surface irregularities in the form of bumps and dents.
Another notable benefit of VASER® Lipo is that the device triggers increased production of collagen, which is the skin’s main structural protein, and thus you can expect smoother, tighter skin following the surgery. And the ultrasound waves are great for loosening fibrous fat that is commonly found in certain trouble areas.
Consultation and Preparation
During your consultation, you will discuss your medical history, drug use (over-the-counter and prescribed medications and supplements), expectations with the procedure, tobacco and alcohol use, and previous surgeries. The goal is to eliminate risk factors, which promotes shorter recovery and predictable results from VASER® Lipo. It is during the consultation that we can give you all the details you’ll need to know about the procedure, the recovery, and the results.
The final results of VASER® Lipo may take some time to be realized. Once your skin has completely redraped to the new contour and you have fully healed, you can expect a more attractive physique and smoother body curves. The results are near permanent provided that you keep a healthy weight through a well-balanced diet and regular exercise.
