Vaser Liposuction

Vaser Liposuction

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat deposits under the skin. VASER liposuction refers to a type of liposuction that breaks down fat cells and dissolves them from deeper tissues so that fat can be removed more efficiently during treatment.

VASER stands for Vibrational Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. This ultrasound technology uses powerful waves to break the bonds between fat cells.

VASER liposuction is considered a more controlled and gentle cosmetic procedure and requires a trained and experienced provider to do it right.

You may be a candidate for liposuction if you are a healthy person who does not smoke or has a history of bleeding.

Liposuction is not considered a slimming tool. People who get the best results from VASER liposuction, or any other type of liposuction, are already within 15 pounds of their ideal weight. This procedure is for people who are looking to treat fat deposits and reveal underlying muscle tone.

How Does VASER Liposuction Work?

Liposuction continues to be incredibly popular, with over 250,000 procedures performed in the United States in 2018.

All types of liposuction work on the same basic principle. Fat deposits are broken down and then removed from the body using anesthesia, saline, and cannulas to suck up the fat under the skin.

Water pressure and lasers are two ways to break down fat deposits prior to the suction procedure. Pulsed ultrasonic waves are another way. VASER liposuction is a type of ultrasonic liposuction.

All of these energy sources generate heat which helps break down fat cells for easier removal and minimally tightens the skin in the treated area.

VASER liposuction is unique in that it allows your provider to be gentle and extremely precise in how fat is removed. It breaks the connection between fatty tissue and underlying muscles without damaging the underlying healthy tissue. This gives VASER liposuction a good reputation for body shaping.

Studies show that liposuction also changes the way your metabolism works to shed fat. There are many researchers who are still trying to find out.

In a small 2017 study, overweight men who underwent VASER liposuction had improved insulin sensitivity a few months after the procedure.
