Vaser liposuction is a more recent type of liposuction that leaves practically no scars or marks. Thanks to this advanced technique, patients can get rid of unwanted fat deposits, but also improve body contour definition as well as skin retraction. This method has been used for more than 10 years in america as an innovative fat reduction treatment in localized areas, but also for the purpose of smoothing out the skin and improving muscle definition. With this technique, two issues can be treated at the same time : removing excess fat and tightening the skin in order for the underlying muscles to be more visible.
Vaser liposuction efficiency makes it possible to see the result immediately after the procedure and with only one procedure while non-invasive techniques can require up to 6 sessions. With excellents results and minor inconveniences, vaser liposuction quickly became one of the most favored types of liposuction by specialists all around the world.
There are multiple benefits to this procedure : quick result, minimally invasive surgery and skin retraction, but this technique is not recommended for overweight patients. Ideal candidates to vaser liposuction only want to get rid of localized fat. This technique is usually only required when excess fat is not affected by exercise and diet. The most common treatment areas are the stomach, hips and arms.
How does Vaser liposuction work ?
Vaser liposuction can be performed under general or local anesthesia. Unlike traditional liposuction, high-frequency ultrasonic vibrations are used to remove fat. Ultrasonic waves break down fat cells, which are removed out of the body with a small sized vaser liposuction cannula. Incisions needed to introduce the vaser cannula are significantly smaller than incisions made during a standard liposuction, therefore they do not require sutures.
The Vaser liposuction technique is also more selective than other liposuctions, because it preserves important tissues while removing excess fat. Vaser liposuction can reach areas beyond blood vessels and nerves. This method results in an easier recovery with practically no bruising, redness or other side effects.
Vaser liposuction is usually used to treat the stomach, arms, hips, chest, double chin and neck. In certain cases, excess fat can be used to perform a fat transfer, which can bring volume in chosen areas such as the breasts, the face (to alleviate deep wrinkles and folds) and other.
