Are you interested in contouring those stubborn pockets of fat that may not have responded to diet and exercise? Have you considered traditional liposuction surgery, but aren’t exactly thrilled with the thought of having fat manually broken up by your plastic surgeon?
If that’s the case, you may be interested in VASER Lipo – a new option for patients who want to see more out of their liposuction surgery!
VASER Lipo: A Great Option to Traditional Liposuction
VASER Lipo is a type of liposuction surgery that uses ultrasonic waves of energy to melt away fatty tissue. Once this fat tissue is liquefied, the fat is drained away from the treatment area, resulting in noticeable inch loss.
Here’s what makes VASER Lipo so different from traditional liposuction. With the latter procedure, your plastic surgeon uses blunt force to break up fat cells enough so that they can be manually drained. This process can cause significant bruising and bleeding, thus extending the amount of time it takes to recover. With VASER Lipo, the ultrasonic waves quickly liquefy fat without causing excessive bleeding or bruising.
As a result, it takes less time to recover from your procedure, yet you can still enjoy the same results you’d get from traditional liposuction.
What to Expect from Your VASER Lipo Procedure
Your VASER Lipo procedure will be conducted in the same way as traditional liposuction surgery. Your plastic surgeon will make a small incision in the treatment area, which will allow them to insert a special cannula. The cannula will pass along sonic energy to the fat cells until they’re liquified enough to be drained.
Recovery from the VASER Lipo procedure can take about three to four weeks; you’ll need to take about four to five days off of work to recover from surgery.
