Vaser Liposuction NYC
Vaser liposuction, or ultrasound lipo, is considered to be the most advanced technology for advanced body contouring. Vaser technology uses a cutting-edge tool that maximizes liposuction precision and efficiency while minimizing trauma to surrounding tissues. The device achieves this by using ultrasound waves that cause only fat cells to rupture during liposuction, leading to more gentle fat removal .
For patients, this means surgeons can easily remove difficult areas of fat, which ultimately reduces inflammation, discomfort, bruising, downtime and recovery for a better liposuction experience and end result.
- Easy and virtually pain-free fat removal
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Speedy recovery; limited downtime
- No scarring
- Limited side effects (itching and swelling are most common)
There are other advantages of the Vaser liposuction system aside from melting fat. Since only fat cells hear the soundwaves, blood vessels and connective tissue remain intact with Vaser. This aspect of Vaser liposuction is special for a few reasons. Leaving the blood vessels intact reduce the amount of blood loss and thus bruising. Bruising and blood loss lead to inflammation, pain, and delayed wound healing. By leaving the connective tissue intact (the connections between the skin and the muscles) the skin tends to settle easier and smoother preventing the classic liposuction deformities that many patients experiences years ago.
One new and exciting innovative use of the technology has been with hi definition liposuction. This is when a surgeon uses the ultrasound technology to selectively melt different areas of fat around muscles to highlight or define the muscles. This tends to bring the melting or Vaser liposuction technology closer to the skin so this should really be done by an experienced liposuction surgeon. Patients should expect more downtime and inflammation from these aggressive procedures. It is also important to remember that the surgeon can bring the skin down to the muscle and help bring the muscle out but the patient will need to exercise in order to bring the muscle up!
Vaser Liposuction with Neinstein Plastic Surgery in NYC
Vaser liposuction is performed by first applying numbing fluid to the area of concern through a tiny incision. Next, the system is employed.
Vaser liposuction technology uses acoustic energy (as opposed to using heat like laser liposuction) to effectively melt and liquify only the targeted fat cells. This allows for the gentle yet complete removal of fat, all while avoiding important nerves and blood cells.
This video taken by Dr. Neinstein at Neisntein Plastic Surgery’s NYC office showcases how the technology works.
