Getting the body you have always wanted is a much more pleasant experience with a new technique called Vaser liposuction.
Since Italian cosmetic surgeons, Arpad and Giorgio Fischer, developed the modern technique of liposuction in the 1970s, the global demand for cosmetic surgery has increased and liposuction is one of the most popular procedures. This is why there has been pressure on researchers to develop safer and less invasive procedures. Vaser liposuction seems to be the answer.
Vaser liposuction is an FDA-approved method which is also known as ‘lunchtime liposuction’, as it only takes an hour. The patient is under local anaesthetic and is able to return to their normal routine and activities immediately.
It is a newer technology which is much more gentle on tissue as the ultrasound targets fat only. Previous models were not fat speciﬁc and destroyed any tissue that got in the way. Thanks to the fat speciﬁcity of this newer technique the recovery period is much quicker, swelling settles down faster, there is less damage to other tissue and you will be able to see rapid results.
With Vaser liposuction surgeons are able to provide a smoother contour as well as remove fat more evenly. Thanks to a smaller cannula (a thin tube), surgeons only need to make micro-incisions which decreases the likelihood of infection. Vaser liposuction has also revolutionised the treatment of pseudogynecomastia (excessive fat deposits in a man’s chest area), as it doesn’t disrupt the tissue matrix unlike conventional liposuction.
First, the area from where the fat is going to be removed is ﬁlled with a special saline solution to expand the fatty layer. This solution numbs the area and shrinks the blood vessels, thereby minimizing blood loss and reducing bruising. Using Vaser technology, the doctor inserts a small probe that disperses ultrasonic energy and liquefies the soft fat cells. The Vaser liposuction’s gentle suction and massage of the reshaped site removes liqueﬁed fat cells with ease without signiﬁcantly damaging blood vessels, nerves, or connective tissue.
The team of researchers has said that they are able to treat areas that they couldn’t get to before like arms, inner thighs, calves and ankles. ‘These are areas that we couldn’t sculpt with traditional liposuction,’ they say, adding: “It is like doing 1000 crunches in an hour and the good thing about it is that the doctor is doing them all for you.”
In one session doctors are able to remove 4-5 litres of fat. However, most patients do not even need that much fat removed.
Vaser liposuction has a Worth It rating on realself.com of 91% with over 260 reviews. This is by far the best rating for a fat removal procedure.
