Plastic Surgery Associates now offers patients VASER Lipo
Hundreds of thousands of people choose to undergo cosmetic body contouring procedures each year, but now many are looking for safer, less painful alternatives to traditional tumescent liposuction. Plastic Surgery Associates is now using the much talked about VASER Lipo System to meet patients demands for gentle body contouring procedures that produce natural looking results with minimal downtime.
An alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, VASER Lipo uses advanced ultrasound technology designed to gently reshape the body. The sound energy is transmitted through small probes that diffuse the ultrasound waves and liquefy the fat for easy removal. The sound energy is gentle enough that it can break apart only the fat, preserving important nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues to promote smooth, predictable results with fast patient recovery.
The VASER Lipo System was FDA cleared for body contouring in 2002 and over 100,000 procedures have been performed worldwide. Clinical studies of the procedure have demonstrated excellent results. In a recent study, blood loss during the VASER Lipo procedure was found to be on average 7.5 times less than with traditional liposuction.
