VASERlipo (also called Vaser Liposuction) is a liposuction device that uses ultrasound waves to shake loose fat cells, which are then removed using a suction cannula.
- Some doctors attest that this technique can be more efficient at fat removal than conventional liposuction and more selective (i.e., it disrupts fat cells but not blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue), and as a result, recovery is faster.
- The manufacturer claims that ultrasonic liposuction is more effective in the treatment of densely fibrous areas like the back, the post-tummy tuck abdomen, the breasts (male and female), and previously suctioned areas.
- Fat cells removed with VASERlipo can often be harvested for use in fat transfer to other parts of the body.
- VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance.
