Vaser liposuction, is a development of the technology used in traditional liposuction. Vaser uses an ultrasonic stimulation process by which fatty deposits are removed from beneath the skin to improve the overall look of a body area. Ideally patients who are treated using Vaser liposuction are in good physical health and are looking for a contouring or body sculpturing as opposed to using liposuction to lose weight
During the procedure, tumescent liquid, or saline solution mixed with anaesthetics, is injected into the body area being treated. Instead of using manual movement Vaser uses high frequency ultrasound vibration to break fat cells apart. The vibration gently loosens the fat cells and absorbs them into the fluid that has been injected into the area. Once this process is complete, a small cannula (needle) is used to remove the liquid and the fat cells. Some of the local anaesthetic will have been absorbed into the local tissues and that helps to reduce post-procedural pain.
This process is considered gentler that the more traditional liposuction techniques and reults in less bleeding and bruising.
Areas especially well-suited for Vaser include the thighs, knees, abdomen, love handles, arms, chest, chin and neck.
