Vaser Liposuction is a precise and effective way to remove stubborn fat deposits from problem areas such as the tummy, love handles, inner thighs and arms. It’s also one of the more superior body contouring cosmetic procedures available.
But how does it compare with traditional liposuction?
Here we explain the top three advantages Vaser Liposuction has over traditional liposuction.
1. Vaser Liposuction melts the fat
During a Vaser Liposuction procedure, an ultrasound probe is inserted into the targeted area through small incisions. The excess fat cells are melted before being removed from the body.
In comparison, traditional liposuction techniques use a cannula to separate or break up the fat cells before it is removed via vacuum suction.
This means Vaser Liposuction is a much gentler cosmetic surgery procedure than traditional liposuction and a lot less dramatic. Patients experience less pain, reduced bruising and a shorter recovery time as a result. There is also a reduced chance of internal injuries sustained during the surgical procedure.
2. Vaser Liposuction achieves smoother results
As the fat cells have been liquified before removal in a Vaser Liposuction procedure, the cosmetic surgeons can achieve much smoother body contouring results. These results are further enhanced during the recovery process and after the wearing of compression garments and attendance of lymphatic massages.
It’s not common for traditional liposuction patients to experience a bumpy appearance as the fat removal process isn’t as precise. Unwanted fat deposits can remain and cause unevenness in the problem areas. This leads many recipients of traditional liposuction to seek corrective cosmetic procedures later on.
3. Vaser Liposuction promotes skin tightening
One of the key benefits of Vaser Liposuction over traditional liposuction methods is its ability to promote skin tightening. When the stubborn fat cells are melted during the Vaser cosmetic procedure, the skin tissue is heated through the ultrasound technology.
This helps to create a contraction of the skin’s collagen fibres and tightens the skin in the treated parts of the body. As a result, patients of Vaser Liposuction have a reduced chance of skin dimpling or sagging after the body fat is removed.
For those who have thin skin or have experienced weight loss or multiple pregnancies, the use of the skin tightening method Renuvion may be of interest. This new FDA-approved treatment is used in conjunction with the Vaser Liposuction surgical procedure and helps to further tighten the skin through plasma and radiofrequency energy.
To summarise, Vaser Liposuction is a less invasive body sculpting and fat removal procedure when compared to traditional liposuction methods. The results are far more superior and the side effects are reduced.
