Vaser Liposuction Treatment
Vaser liposuction is an innovative approach to minimally invasive fat removal.
Vaser stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance.
Treatment is administered with the Vaser Surgical System, a cutting-edge liposuction tool (pictured to the right) designed to maximize the precision and efficiency of liposuction procedures while minimizing trauma to surrounding tissues. This approach reduces inflammation, discomfort, bruising, and downtime for the liposuction patient.
Why Dr. Neinstein uses Vaser Liposuction
When comparing all of the technologies for advanced body contouring Vaser or ultrasound technology is consistently proven to be the most advanced. Laser technology just never proved to be specific enough to melt fat. The specific acoustic or ultrasound wave from the small Vaser probe causes fat cells and only fat cells to rupture. This allows for the difficult areas of fat to be removed easily. When the fat is melted the effort by the surgeon is reduced meaning there is no aggressive surgery and the procedure is performed gently. A gentle liposuction procedure with Vaser technology means less pain and less inflammation for the patient. This all comes together to add to a speedy liposuction recovery and a better result. I have found that liposuction recovery can be enhanced by ideal gentle surgical techniques.
Besides the ability of the Vaser liposuction system to melt fat there are other advantages. Since the sound waves are only heard by the fat cells, vaser lipo enables blood vessels and the connective tissue remain intact. This is aspect of vaser lipo 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 Vaser lipo 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 experiences 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!
How Is Vaser Liposuction Performed
Vaser liposuction is performed by first applying numbing fluid to the area of concern through a tiny incision, and from there the Vaser liposuction 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 while avoiding important nerves and blood cells.
