Vaser Liposuction Details
Vaser Lipo (also called Vaser Liposelection of Vaser Hidef) is a liposuction device used by surgeons to remove fat more efficiently than conventional liposuction. The company that makes Vaser has recently launched a non-invasive body contouring device called Vaser Shape.
Vaser Lipo is an ultrasonic liposuction technology-- it uses ultrasonic energy or high-energy sound waves to emulsify fat. Emulsification turns fat from a solid form into liquid; the liquefied fat is then removed using a suction cannula
Doctors using Vaser Lipo find 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.
- Ultrasonic liposuction may help in the treatment of densely fibrous areas like the back, the post-tummy tuck abdomen, the breasts (male and female) and previously suctioned areas
- However, as pointed out by Dr. Jeffrey Kenkel, the before and after results for liposuction (traditional, ultrasound, laser, VASER or Body Jet) are dependent on the experience and talent of the operating surgeon first and foremost, not the instrument used.
