Vaser liposuction is an alternative technology that can be used for body contouring as opposed to traditional liposuction. This is still a process where fat deposits are removed from underneath the skin to improve the contour of the treated part of the body. To be a good candidate for it, you should be in relatively good health. You should be looking at this procedure as a way to contour your body as opposed to a way to lose weight.
The History of Vaser Liposuction Technology
Using ultrasound and liposuction is the next technological jump in this field. Because of how efficient it is, it is being widely used around the United States. People are using it as a gentle yet effective way to reshape their body by getting rid of unwanted pockets of fat. It is being used to help people who want to get rid of excess fat underneath their chin or in other delicate areas.
One of the reasons why Vaser liposuction is superior to traditional liposuction is that it has the ability to differentiate between the fat in your body and other tissues in your body that should be left undisturbed, including your nerves, your blood vessels, and connective tissues that make up your body. The ultrasonic energy emitted during this procedure bounces off of most of the tissue in your body. However, it targets and destroys fat cells.
When the procedure is done, your skin is able to smoothly retract. This leaves you with an even appearance. It minimizes swelling, bruising, and other side effects that are usually associated with traditional liposuction. Most people experience a faster recovery with this procedure than they would with traditional liposuction.
Preparing for Vaser Liposuction
During your consultation, we will discuss ways that you can prepare for this procedure. We will likely recommend that you avoid medications that contain aspirin. The same is true of consuming large amounts of alcohol or taking high doses of vitamin E.
For the best results, it is recommended that you either be a non-smoker or that you quit smoking a couple of weeks before your surgery and stay away from smoking a few weeks after. Smoking narrows your blood vessels, which can impact the blood supply to your skin.
During the procedure, the fatty area is filled with a saline solution designed to shrink blood vessels as well as numb the site. The solution also makes it easier to liquefy the fat cells using the Vaser liposuction ultrasound energy. High-frequency sound waves are used to target and dissolve fat cells on contact.
