Vaser Liposelection

Vaser liposuction is a procedure that dissolves and removes fat using ultrasound energy. This system is an impressive technology that maximizes fat extraction without compromising your comfort and safety. It uses focused ultrasound energy to get rid of fat cells without effecting very much of the surrounding veins, nerves, and tissue. This results in faster healing and less downtime. In addition, because this technique uses ultrasound energy rather than incisions on the body, treatments will not leave undesirable scars. Areas of the body that patients can choose to remove fat from include the chin, neck, arms, chest, stomach, back, hips, buttocks, knees, and thighs.

Vaser lipo system is minimally invasive with fast patient recovery and minimal pain and bruising. Physicians who have used this technique report enhanced skin retraction and smooth, predictable results, as well as fewer number of additional treatments after a patient's initial treatment. The Vaser lipo system is designed to optimize each phase of the body sculpting procedure to bring the best possible, most smooth contours. This procedure can be conveniently performed in a doctor's office or as an outpatient procedure at a surgery center or hospital.

Vaser lipo system uses small probes to deliver a minimal level of ultrasonic vibrating energy to target the patient's fatty tissues under the local anesthesia. When the patient's fatty tissue comes in contact with the ultrasonic energy emitting from the probes, the fat cells will dislodge from their supporting tissues and essentially melt away. With proper surgical technique, this process does not generate heat.

Once the fatty tissue is liquified, they can be removed with less damage to body tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, which uses suctions to remove fat and could damage surrounding tissue, the Vaser system is designed to efficiently remove the fatty fluids while preserving the tissue matrix. The layer of fat is first infused with tumescent fluid before the fat cells are broken apart and liquified into the infusion fluid by the high frequency vibration of the ultrasonic probes. Then, the liquified fat is removed, and the preserved tissue is remodeled and revascularized to promote skin retraction.




Frequently Asked Questions

What is VASER lipo system? How is it different from traditional liposuction?

Vaser Lipo, also known as LipoSelection®, is an advanced body contouring procedure that selectively removes unwanted body fat. An alternative to traditional liposuction, Vaser Lipo uses ultrasound technology to reshape your body without harming body tissue in the process. To accomplish this, the Vaser technique distinguishes between targeted body fat from important nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue that could otherwise be harmed when removing fat. This technology additionally breaks up and liquifies fat while still preserving other important body tissue, resulting in smoother and faster results.

How does Vaser Lipo work?

First, the area to be reshaped is filled with a solution that shrinks the blood vessels in order to minimize potential blood loss and reduce bruising. The solution also makes it easier to break up the fatty tissue. A small probe then transmits ultrasound energy, which breaks up and liquifies the fat without harming other important tissues. Lastly, the liquified fat is removed through a suction process.

What body areas can be treated with Vaser Lipo?

Many areas of the body can be reshaped using the Vaser system, including the chin, neck, stomach, chest, back, arms, thighs, knees, buttocks, and hips. Just about any part of the body can be treated with this procedure.

How much fat can be removed?

There are limits to how much fatty tissue can be safely taken from the body. A good way to estimate how much fat can be removed from your body is to bend over toward the ground. The amount of loose fat that you see is about the amount that can be removed. This procedure should not be used as a weight loss solution, as there most likely will not be very much weight loss. The result of the procedure will give you a slimmer body shape that you are pleased with.

Where is Vaser Lipo performed?

Vaser Lipo is typically performed in a doctors' office or surgery center. It can be performed under local anesthesia so that the patient is awake, general anesthesia, or IV sedation, depending on what you and your doctor decide on.

How soon will I see my results?

This depends on the amount of fat removed and the number of sites treated. You can typically see results right after the procedure is completed, with final results appearing in three to six months.

What is the recovery time?

Recovery time varies with the extensiveness of the procedure (amount of fat removed, the number of sites treated, etc). Patients typically return to normal activity within a few days after the procedure.

What about future weight gain or fat migration to other areas of the body?

If you gain or lose weight after the procedure, the weight usually gets distributed evenly through your entire body. Fat that is removed should not return or migrate to other parts of the body, assuming a healthy diet and lifestyle continues. However, there will always be layers of unremoved fat in your body, so these layers can expand if significant weight gain occurs.

How do I know if I'm a good candidate for Vaser Lipo?

Vaser is a solution for healthy people who are frustrated by the persistance of fat in certain areas of their body despite diet and exercise attempts. This technique is a quick procedure to get rid of stubborn fat areas. Although there are limits to the amount of fat that can be removed, your doctor can assist you with your decision about potential areas for sculpting, anticipated results, and the recovery process.
