Vaser ® ultrasonic liposuction is a procedure in which fat tissue is disintegrated using special sound waves. Liquidified fat is then removed using thin cannulas. The most distinct characteristic of Vaser ® is that its specific to the target fat tissue (liposelection). It doesn’t damage surrounding blood vessels or nerves.
Vaser ® can be used for fat removal, tummy tuck surgery or body contouring (hi def liposuction). The method is safe and successful in any region of the body.
In buttock augmentation surgery, Vaser ® is used to shape the waist region and excess fat is later re-injected. (Brazilian Butt)
The time that the procedure will take depends on the umber of regions that Vaser ® will be applied and the amount of fat tissue. Although the operation can be carried out under local anesthesia for small regions, general anesthesia is recommended for applications on larger areas.
After Vaser ® liposuction, the healing period is relatively shorter. Swelling and bruising is also relatively minimal considering the procedure doesn’t damage blood vessels and involves minimal trauma on the area and use of compression garments are necessary for shorter periods, usually 2 to 3 weeks. In addition, a common complaint of liposuction patients which is numbness in the area is less common after Vaser ® liposuction.
