VASERLipo removes fat from your body, and it can restore your skin’s tight, smooth appearance. Since the procedure is minimally-invasive, it doesn’t require nearly as much downtime as some of the alternatives.
This procedure uses ultrasonic energy to help eliminate unwanted fat from your body. It’s one of the fastest liposuction treatments available, and when compared with traditional liposuction, it doesn’t cause nearly as much discomfort.
How VASERLipo is Performed
This procedure is great for an area of your body that has previously been suctioned, and it can be used on several different body parts. During the procedure, tumescent fluid is injected into the target area, and a numbing medication is applied.
The target area is also treated with a capillary constrictor, which shrinks local blood vessels. Next, small tools are used to transmit ultrasonic waves throughout the target area.
The waves of energy are designed to only target the fat cells in the treatment area, and as the energy runs through the fat cells, it shakes them loose and breaks them apart. The tumescent fluid is important because it emulsifies the disrupted fat cells.
The final part of the procedure usually consists of using small tools to remove the mixture of cells and fluid. VASERLipo is designed to eliminate fat while preserving the surrounding tissues.
What are the Benefits?
If you’re considering this treatment, you should understand the benefits. Unlike some of the alternative procedures, VASERLipo can access hard-to-reach areas.
Many patients prefer this procedure because it offers contouring that is much more precise than the alternatives. VASERLipo can give you smoother, tighter skin, and it will contour your body. Since it doesn’t require general anesthesia, there are less risks.
Another reason to consider this treatment option is the benefit of having large quantities of fat removed from your body. In many cases, VASERLipo can be used to remove several liters of fat from a single patient. It does this in a way that is not nearly as invasive as traditional liposuction.
The ultrasound that is used during the procedure is designed to only target your fat cells, which prevents damage to surrounding tissues. The problem with traditional liposuction is that it can damage nearby tissues, which can cause major bruising and swelling.
VASERLipo is gentle and causes less discomfort. The recovery time is minimal, and you should be able to get back to your daily activities within just days.
