What is VASER Ultrasound Liposuction?
Sometimes referred to as high-def liposuction, VASER ultrasound liposuction removes unwanted body fat more thoroughly and evenly when compared to other liposuction technology. Often, it is able to reveal previously hidden muscles. If desired, it is able to sculpt out a “six-pack.”
VASER is an acronym for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. It employs the power of ultrasound to break up fat attachments before using suction to remove the fat from the body. This differs from standard liposuction, which separates the fat mechanically using a metal cannula (tube).
There are two primary advantages to using a VASER device. Ultrasonic frequencies generate sound waves, not heat, to loosen fat that may not be accessible otherwise, allowing more of the unwanted fatty tissue to be removed. The result is notably more dramatic outcomes in terms of uncovering muscles that had previously been covered in fatty tissue.
The less obvious but equally important advantage is that VASER reduces blood loss and improves skin retraction (tightening of the skin).* The sound waves are specifically tuned to be absorbed by fat and don’t affect nerves and blood vessels to the same degree, resulting in less bruising and pain. This translates into a more rapid recovery and less discomfort.
