Excess body fat is a major concern among many men and women, affecting physical appearance and thereby, confidence and self-esteem. Liposuction is a popular plastic surgery procedure performed using special technologies to remove excess fat. Of the various technologies available today, VASER liposuction is one of the most effective. This minimally invasive, safe modality utilizes ultrasound technology to remove fat and tighten skin, and help men and women achieve a trim, well-shaped body. It can reshape both large and delicate areas – the abdomen, thighs, arms, neck, chin, face, and more.
The VASER Lipo Procedure
First, a tumescent saline solution is injected into the treatment area to numb it, shrink the blood vessels and minimize bruising. This also makes the fat cells easier to remove as this tumescent liquid temporarily expands the tissue layers. VASERlipo’s specially designed probes, which come in different diameters and groove patterns, deliver ultrasound waves to selectively target fat and liquefy it. The emulsified fat is removed using specially-designed cannulas so as to minimize trauma to surrounding structures such as the nerves, blood vessels and other connective tissues. Preservation of these important tissues promotes enhanced skin retraction and the ultrasound energy stimulates the production of collagen.
VASER® technology can precisely distinguish between fat and surrounding connective tissue, so that no nerves, important tissues or blood vessels are damaged. Since the viability of the fat cells is retained, it can be used in fat transfer, a procedure to boost volume in body areas such as breast and buttocks naturally. For men seeking an athletic-looking physique, VASER hi-def is the ideal option to achieve six-pack abs. For this, the plastic surgeon carefully sculpts the small deposits of fat around the specific muscle groups to enhance the visibility of the underlying musculature.
Following the procedure there will be mild swelling and bruising in the treated area. Risks are minimal and normal activities can usually be resumed within a week. Immediate result such as a significant reduction in body fat, and a tighter appearance of the treated areas can be noted soon after the liposuction surgery. During the post-operative recovery, the patient is advised to wear a compression garment or undergo a massage therapy, which rapidly promotes healing. As local anesthesia is administered VASERlipo is minimally invasive and safe and takes only lesser time for the recovery process.
