Within the field of cosmetic surgery, liposuction isn’t something that’s new. This established procedure has helped millions of people around the globe get rid of unwanted fat on their body.
While liposuction has been around for awhile, there has always been a major downside to the traditional approach. Even though traditional liposuction does make it possible to pinpoint specific areas of fat, the downside has always been that breaking the fat up and sucking it out of the body is a very manual process.
This manual and physically demanding process leaves patients with tissue that can take a long time to fully recover. Not only can this result in a lot of bruising, but it can also cause tenderness or pain for an extended period of time.
If you’re interested in improving your body with the help of liposuction but are worried about the potential downsides, the good news is there’s a better way to get rid of fat. Vaser liposuction is a major improvement to traditional liposuction.
Not only is it just as effective, if not more, but it also takes an approach that considerably reduces the tissue damage and subsequent recovery from the procedure.
How Exactly Does Vaser Liposuction Work?
With traditional liposuction, the process begins by immediately going into the fat tissue. Because liposuction literally sucks fat out of the body, the fat being removed first has to be broken up so it can then be sucked out through the thin medical device.
The manual process of breaking up the fat is what causes the tissue damage and extended recovery time.
With Vaser liposuction, the fat isn’t broken up manually. Instead, the targeted fat is hit with specialized ultrasound waves. What’s great about this approach is instead of impacting any of the surrounding tissue, only the fat is broken up. Once the ultrasound phase is complete, it’s easy for the fat to be removed from the body. And because the fat was the only tissue affected during the process, there’s not an excess of damage that has to heal.
Where Can Vaser Be Used?
It’s possible for Vaser liposuction to be successfully used on many different areas of the body. Some of the most popular include hips, thighs, buttocks, back, arms and abs. For men struggling with gynecomastia, Vaser liposuction can be used to remove their unwanted breast fat and provide a more masculine chest.
Is Vaser Liposuction Safe?
As with any medical procedure, there are risks associated with this type of liposuction. While your doctor will discuss all these risks prior to the procedure, the risks for a healthy individual are very minimal. One of the specific reasons Vaser is very safe and effective is because the form of ultrasound technology used is very specialized. And because far less physical distress is caused by Vaser than traditional liposuction, recovery is generally much easier.
