Vaser Liposuction: What Is The Difference?

January 29, 2018  |   Liposuction

When thinking of the term liposuction, the traditional method most often pops into mind.  Traditional liposuction is essentially a method plastic surgeons use to remove fat from the body and change its overall shape. However, advancements in the field have provided a superior method known as Vaser Liposuction.

What Is Vaser Liposuction?

The risks associated with Vaser Liposuction are similar to other liposuction treatments, however patients typically experience less pain and fewer side effects because these ultrasonic probes work to break down fat in a gentler more precise manner. Because it uses ultrasound waves, the Vaser system can selectively target areas of fat and yet leave surrounding tissues intact.

Benefits Of Vaser Liposuction

With conventional liposuction methods, skin can become bumpy, risk of blood loss is often higher, and skin can lose a bit of its general elasticity. With the laser-assisted, Vaser Liposuction system these side effects can better be avoided; fat is broken down gently by heating the tissue helping to promote a quicker and easier healing process.

Vaser Liposuction is a versatile procedure that is further able to remove fat from places that conventional liposuction isn’t able to. Through the Vaser Liposuction system, fat can be effectively eliminated from the following areas: abdomen, thighs,  knees, hips, back, arms, male breasts, love handles, chin, and neck areas. Bruising in these areas is typically minimal, making the recovery process significantly easier.

Vaser Liposuction can easily be performed in conjunction with other procedures allowing patients to complete treatment plans without multiple surgeries.
