Benefits of VASER Lipo
VASER® lipo is an exciting new fat reduction treatment that allows our surgeon to remove fat from the body with minimal damage to the nearby soft tissue. This procedure utilizes ultrasonic waves to gently break apart fat cells before they are extracted. It is a great option for almost any healthy adult who is unhappy with their appearance because of stubborn body fat.
A Look at Invasive Procedures
Traditional liposuction has helped countless patients over the years, but this invasive procedure can be very tough on an individual’s body. The process of aggressively removing pockets of fat damages nearby soft tissue, and that makes the recovery period much longer. Within the last few years, doctors have discovered that one of the best ways to minimize the side effects of liposuction is to use ultrasound technology.
Ultrasonic Waves and Fat Removal
Fat is a unique type of soft tissue, and it can easily be damaged with the proper energy source. During a VASER® lipo procedure, our surgeon will deliver energy to the nearby fat cells. Within moments of being exposed to the ultrasonic waves, the fat cells begin to fall apart on their own.
Manually extracting large pockets of fat bruises and lacerates the nearby soft tissue. VASER® technology has solved this problem by breaking apart the fat before it is removed. Some preliminary studies have revealed that ultrasonic waves are able to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. As soon as the device is turned on, your body will flood the area with key nutrients to begin repairing the soft tissue.
The Results of VASER® Lipo
Your fat is physically removed from your body during this surgery, and that means the results can be permanent as long as you don’t gain weight. This procedure is typically not suitable for those who have a significant amount of weight to lose, and we ask most of our patients to start making lifestyle changes well before their appointments. That includes sticking to a healthy diet and exercising as much as possible to improve your strength and keep your weight at a reasonable level.
