Vaser liposuction, also known as LipoSelection, was first introduced in 2002 as an alternative to the traditional liposuction procedure. This minimally invasive FDA-approved technology utilizes sound waves to gently loosen fat and smooth and contour the body. Ideal candidates for this treatment are those who are in good condition and have an interest in removing stubborn fat deposits for a leaner, well-sculpted figure.
ABOUT VASER LIPOSUCTION
Unlike traditional liposuction, Vaser liposuction does not require a lengthy period of downtime for recovery. A single treatment can provide immediate results that continue to improve as the body heals. As a stand-alone procedure, Vaser lipo can be performed in-office under local anesthesia reducing health risks to the patient and lowering its overall cost. If it is combined with another procedure such as tummy tuck or Brazilian Butt Lift, then the procedure would be performed at an outpatient surgery center under general anesthesia.
During this Vaser liposuction process, a tumescent liquid is mixed with anesthetics, which is injected into the treatment areas. While other procedures might use a cannula and manual movement to break down fatty tissue, Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound high-frequency vibration to gently disengage and loosen fat cells, eventually emulsifying the tumescent fluid that was infused into the treated area. After this portion of the process is complete, a cannula is used to remove the liquid and fat cells, leaving residual anesthetic fluid behind to help reduce any post-procedural pain.
Vaser liposuction is not only a gentler method for ridding the body of excess fat, but allows for cosmetic surgeons to exercise more control over the smoothing, sculpting, and contouring of the body. Given its less invasive nature, it is able to loosen fat while preserving other tissues, resulting in less bleeding and bruising.
