Understanding Vaser-Assisted Liposuction

liposuction

Vaser-assisted liposuction is commonly referred to as LipoSelection. This technology provides an option to traditional liposuction. This procedure removes deposits of fat from under the skin to improve the look of a specific part of the body. The best candidates for the procedure are in good physical condition and are interested in body sculpting or contouring. This process is not intended as a means of losing a lot of weight. In this procedure, sound waves are used by this technology to gentlyy reduce fat. This has led the way for smoothing and contouring the body with liposuction.

Vaser-assisted liposuction uses either anesthetics combined with a saline solution or tumescent liquid in an injection to treat a specific part of the body. Traditional liposuction uses a cannula along with specific movements to break down the tissues of fat. The Vaser procedure breaks apart the cells of fat with the vibrations from a high frequency ultrasound. A Vaser ultrasonic probe is used by the cosmetic surgeon and inserted into fatty tissues. This gently breaks down the cells of fat by gently loosening and disengaging the fat through the vibrations. The tumescent fluid is emulsified and infused into the targeted area of the body.

Once the emulsification process has begun, the fat cells and liquid are removed using a small cannula. To help ensure the comfort of the individual, a portion of the local anesthetic stays in the tissue. This process was designed to be gentler than the techniques used for traditional liposuction. The cosmetic surgeon has a lot more control to provide the person with the contoured and smooth look they desire. Vaser-assisted liposuction was also specifically created to loosen the fat pockets while preserving and protecting the other tissues. The saline solution is also much gentler on the body. The areas of the body best suited for this procedure include the love handles, abdomen, thighs, neck, chin, chest and arms.

Maureen is exceptional at what she does. When I first started lazer, she relaxed me and described the process. Each time I come, she makes me feel at ease and carries on conversation during the process so it is not as painful. I would love to continue seeing her for other services.
