Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure. Over the years, many advanced techniques have been developed to make the procedure more suitable for different bodies and preferences. One revolutionary technique for fat removal is VASERlipo.
VASERlipo is a technique for removing unwanted fat from the body. It is approved for use by the FDA. VASERlipo is minimally invasive and quite safe.
VASERlipo is performed using sound waves. For the procedure, tumescent fluid is first injected into the treatment site. The tumescent fluid contains lidocaine (a local anesthetic), saline, and epinephrine.
After injection of the fluid, ultrasound vibrations on a high frequency are used to break down fat cells. This is unlike the traditional liposuction approach, where fats cells are broken down manually before removing them using a cannula.
The sound waves are administered to the target areas with the aid of a probe. Once the fat cells break down into a liquid form, they are removed using a cannula. When the procedure is complete, the doctor will close the incisions. You might need to wear a support garment over the treatment area.
You can use VASERlipo to remove fat from the arms, flanks, knees, chest, ankles, neck, chin, thighs, and abdomen. It can also be used to reduce male breasts.
Reasons To Opt For VASERlipo
VASERlipo is a technique that offers surgeons more control to target fat cells in a way that can give your body better contours. Your doctor can choose a type of VASERlipo procedure suitable for your needs. The standard technique is good enough to remove fat, but more advanced VASERlipo techniques can be used to contour specific parts of the body. Your doctor can target the body parts very precisely, which results in contours that look natural.
Another benefit of VASERlipo is that it protects nearby tissues even when breaking down fat cells. Because it is more precise, it causes less bruising. The use of saline during the procedure is also helpful for protecting the treatment sites from bruising.
After two to three months, you will be able to see the full results of the surgery. You will continue to see improved results for months after the procedure is complete. VASERlipo is not only a fat-removal technique, it is also a procedure that can reveal your body’s natural contours by allowing doctors to target each treatment area precisely.
VASERlipo can be performed without general anesthesia. Because of this, surgery risks are reduced and recovery time is shorter. The incisions are small and remain invisible when healed. You may have some swelling, which is normal after any surgical procedure; this subsides as healing progresses.
You can resume your normal routine within a few days. With VASERlipo, people may be able to return to their daily routine the same day if the target area is small.
