What is Vaser Lipo?
Vaser Lipo is a revolutionary development in aesthetic technology. This advanced liposuction system out-performs traditional liposuction systems in removing excess fat and shaping a slimmer body. Similar to traditional liposuction in that fat is removed with suction, Vaser Lipo has some significant differences.
How is Vaser Lipo Different?
It requires the use of a smaller cannula (hollow needle used for fat extraction) and the use of ultrasound to loosen and free fat cells from the surrounding tissues. This process is gentler and less invasive, a truly precision body sculpting system. Vaser Lipo is effective on most areas of the body, including thighs, arms, abdomen, back, love handles, knees and neck.
How Does Vaser Lipo Work?
Vaser Lipo works by using ultrasonic soundwaves to loosen and release fat deposits. Once the fat cells have been loosened, a small cannula is used to gently extract excess fat. This procedure is less damaging to the surrounding tissues and produces less bruising and bleeding than traditional liposuction.
What is the Procedure?
Vaser Lipo does not require the use of general anesthesia. Instead, a tumescent (causing swelling) solution is injected into the target area. This solution is primarily a saline solution combined with anesthetic to numb the area. Once the solution is administered, a small probe is inserted which uses ultrasound technology to loosen the targeted fat cells from the surrounding tissue. After the fat has been loosened, it is gently removed via suction. The incisions necessary for this treatment are only a few millimeters in size, healing to being almost impossible to see, if at all.
What are the Benefits of Vaser Lipo?
Vaser Lipo offers many benefits for patients who seek advanced body sculpting through fat removal, including:
- Reduced recovery time compared to traditional liposuction
- Precision body sculpting technique
- No need for general anesthesia
- Able to sculpt a smoother and more attractive body shape
- Less damage to healthy tissues
Am I a Candidate for Vaser Lipo?
Ideal candidates for Vaser Lipo are in relatively good health, non-smokers or willing to quit, and are at close to an ideal weight. Vaser Lipo is not a weight loss technique, but a system to remove stubborn fatty deposits that diet and exercise cannot resolve. Ideal candidates want to lose a few inches around the waist, smooth love handles, or reduce fat on arms, thighs, chin, back, neck, or other body area.
What is the Recovery Time?
Recovery from Vaser Lipo occurs within the first week if a larger area or multiple areas were treated, or just a few days for smaller areas. Recovery may require a taking a day or two off work to allow your body time to heal. There may be bruising and swelling that will subside over the first week or two, along with minor discomfort that is easily managed with mild pain medication. Our experienced surgeon, Dr. Klein, will provide you with full aftercare instructions and monitor your recovery.
