Every body type has areas that are predisposed to fat storage and even with rigorous diet and exercise, those unwanted bulges often persist. Patented VASER®Technology can now offer a safe alternative for eliminating unwanted fat, revealing a smooth, new shape with fast recovery.
The next generation in body contouring, VASER® Lipo uses ultrasonic energy to selectively break apart fat deposits while preserving other important tissues. Whether you need help with a small problem area or a major transformation, VASER® Lipo allows your doctor to do his or her very best work.
What is VASER® Lipo? Is it different than traditional liposuction?
VASER® Lipo, also known as LipoSelection, is an advanced body contouring procedure that selectively removes unwanted body fat. VASER® Lipo uses state-of-the art ultrasound technology designed to gently reshape your body. What distinguishes the VASER® Lipo procedure is its ability to differentiate targeted fat from other important tissues – such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. Innovative VASER® technology breaks up fat while preserving these other important tissues to promote smooth results and rapid healing.
What happens during a VASER® Lipo procedure?
First, the area to be reshaped is filled with a special saline solution that helps numb the site and shrink the blood vessels (to minimize blood loss and reduce bruising). Next, a small probe transmits sound energy (similar to that used for cataract removal of the eye) to break apart fatty tissue on contact while preserving other important tissue. Finally, the liquefied fat is removed through a gentle suction process designed to minimize damage to surrounding tissues.
Is VASER® Lipo right for me?
VASER® Lipo is for healthy patients who are frustrated by the resistance of certain body areas to diet and exercise and seek a fast, low-pain solution.
