The continuing development of cosmetic liposuction technologies over the last decades has been nothing short of incredible. From the technique to the surgical instruments used, every meticulous detail has been studied and researched in order to improve safety for surgeons and patients.
What is VASER Liposuction?
VASER liposuction uses an ultrasonic soundwave to specifically target fat cells. With this technology, the easy removal of the fat with less damage to the surrounding tissues and blood vessels is achieved.
The number of fat pockets for each individual varies greatly since we carry fat in different areas of the body. This is one reason why some individuals are prone to have fatty pockets in one area than other body areas. VASER liposuction is most especially effective for these stubborn fat pockets which despite exercise and diet will just not go away.
How is VASER Liposuction done?
VASER liposuction uses a special thin-elongated probe (size varies from 2.2 to 4.5 mm). The ultrasonic soundwaves are emitted through the tip of these probes which result in the loosening of the fatty tissues for easy removal using a suction cannula (a thin hollow-tube somewhat the same as the VASER probe).
Important Points to Remember
Like traditional liposuction, VASER liposuction is not a weight-loss treatment. It is a treatment to achieve a better body shape and silhouette.
In regard to the wounds, multiple incisions (small cuts around 4mm) are made depending on the target areas.
After VASER Liposuction
Most patients who have undergone VASER liposuction will generally feel sore, swollen, and bruised for the first few weeks. These effects will eventually fade and resolve on their own.
During the first month after the procedure, a compression garment is especially important. This garment will help lessen the swelling and maintain the shape of the body.
Lastly, with VASER liposuction, it will take around 6 months to see the final results when all the swelling has gone down; however, during the first few weeks, you may already notice an improvement in appearance.
