Liposuction is a body contouring procedure. It is designed to help remove excess pockets of fat from areas that do not respond well to diet and exercise alone. While there are a lot of benefits that come from traditional liposuction, there are also some downsides. However, over the years, liposuction technology has advanced. Different ways of carrying out the procedure have been invented. Some are a lot safer and a lot less invasive. A good example of this is VASER® liposuction.
What is VASER® Liposuction?
This is an advanced body contouring procedure. The procedure is designed to get rid of fat that you don’t want on your body. It is a softer technique that is an alternative to the harsh traditional liposuction procedure. This procedure utilizes state-of-the-art ultrasound technology. It is designed to redesign or reshape your body in the gentlest way possible.
The safety of VASER® liposuction can be attested to by the fact that it has been used by physicians around the globe. The positive results that they have experienced, the rapid recovery time of their patients, and patient satisfaction are all excellent indicators of the safety and efficiency of this procedure.
What Makes VASER® Liposuction Different Than Traditional Liposuction?
What makes this procedure different from traditional liposuction is that it takes advantage of ultrasound technology. This is a minimally-invasive form of technology that is designed to prevent damage to important tissues in your body while at the same time selectively targeting fat. This technique is designed to break up fat and leave the other important tissues unaffected. This means that you can receive maximum results with minimum damage to surrounding tissues.
The procedure is performed by using a tumescent saline solution. After this is injected into the treatment area, a probe is inserted. This probe is designed to create ultrasound energy and break up the fat and dislodge it. Once this is done, a cannula is inserted into the area that is being treated, and the fat that has been melted is gently removed. In addition to being gentle, this technique is effective. For this reason, doctors have been able to use it on a wide range of body parts.
